Why is OrganoClay used in Waste Water Treatment Plant?
Organoclay is commonly used in the upstream sector of the petroleum industry for removing hydrocarbons from refinery process water when used for water treatment, but it is rarely used in the production of petroleum. Many other industries, such as shipping and dockside servicing, car washes, and other businesses that deal with an oily wastewater stream, use organoclay. Organoclays have also been tested for the removal of other organic chemicals from ground and surface water, such as PCBs and pesticides.
Organoclay is a low-cost filtration media
When used alone, Organoclay removes oil at 700% the rate of activated carbon and cuts operating costs by 50% or more. When used as a pre-treatment for activated carbon in oil and grease removal applications, Organoclay effectively removes the oil and grease, allowing the activated carbon to remove the soluble organic compounds more efficiently.
The use of Organoclay improves the efficiency of the treatment process
The quaternary amine-treated clay pellets can absorb 50–60% of their weight in oil, grease, and other low solubility organic compounds. Organoclay improves overall system performance and lowers costs when used upstream of activated carbon or downstream of other oil removal processes.
Organoclay can be used to pre-treat the influent of GAC filters, reverse osmosis units, ultra filtration units, and other systems where less soluble, higher molecular weight hydrocarbons cause plugging, fouling, and equipment contamination.
The amount of Organoclay needed depends on the contaminant concentration and type, contact time, and fluid temperature. Contaminants with lower concentrations and solubilities, longer contact times, and moderate fluid temperatures are generally preferred.
Hydrocarbon Removal with Organoclay
OrganoClays remove free hydrocarbons from wastewater as well as dissolved hydrocarbons such as benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylene. Modified Clay Media, when used in conjunction with a polishing stage of granular activated carbon, removes dissolved and free hydrocarbons to levels well below current water quality standards.
Organoclay products can be used to effectively remove oil and other hydrocarbons from water where traditional oil-water separators have had limited success. The product does not absorb hydrocarbons, but rather adsorbs them, leaving no byproduct of the process. During the adsorption process, the quaternary amines form organic pillars between the clay platelets, increasing the interlamellar distance and facilitating the formation of a hydrocarbon partition.
