This report presents the results of studies of copper recovery (and incidental reduction of hexavalent chromium) in brass mill discharge by passage of the discharge over scrap iron in a rotating drum. The drum feed consisted of normal production discharge of combined pickle rinse water and spent sulfuric acid and sulfuric acid-bichromate pickle. About half of the total mill waste discharge over a period of 16 weeks was processed. Four modes of drum operation were studied: (1) continuous rotation, (2) no rotation, (3) intermittent rotation (1 hr off - 5 min on), and (4) intermittent rotation (2-1/2 hr off - 10 min on). Each mode was studied at two flow levels and two scrap iron surface area levels. Data were evaluated in terms of percent cementation of available copper, excess iron consumption over theoretical, and completeness of chromium reduction. Results indicate that the over-riding factor in the efficiency of copper cementation is the level of copper in the feed solution. Hexavalent chromium is effectively reduced providing the pH is below 2.5.
