The report describes the first (design) phase of a full-scale demonstration of hyperfiltration for closed-cycle operations of a LaFrance Industries dye house. (The remaining three phases are installation, operation, and maintenance.) The decision to demonstrate the process was based on earlier projects that showed hyperfiltration to be potentially economical for recycle/reuse of energy, water, and chemicals in textile preparation, dyeing, and wet finishing. On-site pilot tests of three hyperfiltration modules led to the selection of the Mott-Brandon ZOPA module. Representative wash waters from LaFrance dyeing operations were characterized as a basis for demonstration equipment design. The dye range is to be converted to counterflow with a water flow rate of 50 gpm at 82C, with 96% of the wash water recovered as permeate for direct recycle. Reuse and/or disposal of the concentrate and dye pad residuals will require further study.
