Purification by electrolysis
Electrolysis consists of generating chemical reactions by electrical activation. The process of transforming the electrical energy into chemical energy is highly efficient in the separation of materials.
The electrolysis is used in multiple industrial processes to achieve:
Application fields of purification by electrolysis
The purification technology by electrolysis is therefore largely applied in the treatment of liquids containing metallic components without the use of adsorptive resins or charcoal, liquids containing colloids without the use of chemical products, etc.
The electrolysis allows the physical-chemical treatment of industrial effluents and complies with discharge guidelines and regulations for environmental protection.
The advantages of purification by electrolysis
SIVA has chosen to offer this technology since flocs formed by electrolysis are more compact than those formed by mechanical agitation or the addition of chemicals, generating significantly less volume of waste than chemical coagulation-flocculation processes.
This technology also presents the advantages of requiring minimal maintenance, limited operator intervention and low energy consumption.
