Printed circuits, Water purification, Water waste
The wastewater from the electroplating processes required for the production of printed circuit boards has a high heavy metal content. The regulatory agencies of both the Federal Government and the State of Florida set pretreatment limitations on the quantity of the hazardous heavy metal ions that may be discharged t o a receiving body of water or to a Publicly Owned Treatment Works. A number of treatment processes are available for the effective removal of these pollutants. The mechanism behind the more common processes are discussed in this paper. Many variables must be considered in the design of a wastewater pretreatment system. The more important variables are enumerated and the criteria to integrate these variables into the treatment selection process and ultimately into the design of the pretreatment system are covered in detail. Flow diagrams and equipment lists for the treatment processes selected are given as well as a breakdown of the total construction costs for this project.
