"Uralelectromed" (metallurgical complex UMMC) has completed the modernization of the line neutralization of vitriol shop by installing new equipment.
The shop was replaced oksidizerov (meant to neutralize the sulfuric acid contained in the spent electrolyte copper electrolysis, and prepare for the next stage of production of copper sulphate — a vacuum-evaporation crystallization) on the turrets, developed by specialists of "Uralelectromed."
As the head of vitriol plant of "Uralelectromed" Vladimir Ivonin, new equipment not only ensures the continuity of the process and better performance, but also significantly reduces the consumption of energy. Turrets also allow more than 2 times lower compressed air consumption and reduce harmful emissions into the atmosphere.
Along with the installation of the column in the shop was also automated the process, allowing a single operator to control the operation of all machines.
Recall that the production of vitriol plant is widely used in agriculture, for example, in the production of feed additives in animal husbandry, and the enrichment of ores. Also, copper sulfate is used in electroplating, production of copper mineral paints, synthetic fibers, for staining of zinc and bronze.
