Abstract
The report describes process changes and waste treatment, recovery, and reuse facilities installed by Volco Brass and Copper Company, Kenilworth, New Jersey. The plant produces 75 tons of wire per day. An electrolytic system was installed to recover copper from the spent primary pickle solution and to regenerate the sulfuric acid for reuse. A hydrogen peroxide bright pickle replaced the chromate and fluoride bright pickles previously used. Copper from the bright pickle is also recovered in the electrolytic system. The electrolytic copper is reused on location in casting. An integrated copper treatment system was installed to treat bright pickle drag-out. Sludge from the integrated system is recovered for sale. Rinse water consumption was reduced from 150 gpm to 10 gpm. Former discharges of chromium, ammonium, and fluoride ions have been eliminated. Cost and operating data and effluent analyses are presented. (Author)
