CLEANING OF EFFLUENTS BY THE ELECTRO-FLOTATION PROCESS

To further improve the method of cleaning railway shop effluents containing waste oils to conform to the governmental requirements before discharging them into the drainage sewers, a new method has been evolved for the removal of heavy oil and washing by-products in these effluents. This process is based on a physical-chemical process, accomplished by an electro-flotation method. The good results of a recent eighteen month test at the Karlsruhe repair shops of the German Federal Railway are described. The detailed description of the plant and its operation are given also.
