Project Detail

Roytec supplies a number of different Process Technologies for ION Exchange in Hydromet applications

KAYELAKERA 014

Fixed Bed Ion Exchange:

  • Metal recovery from waste streams, i.e. Cu recovery
  • Purification of metals, i.e. removing Ni from Co electrolyte
  • Precious metals recovery and purification
  • Extraction of toxic materials from process streams

Counter Current Ion Exchange:

  • Metal recovery from process streams;
    –    Cu/Co/Ni/Zn/U/V/Re/Mo/Au/Bi/Sb recovery.
    –    Enhance product purity using scrub and pre-elution.
    –    U, Re, Ni, Cu products employ these techniques,
  • Purification of metals, i.e. removing Ni from Co electrolyte, V from U PLS;
    –    Co/Ni; Ni/Fe; Cu/Fe separations.
  • Precious metals recovery and purification.
  • Extraction of toxic materials from process streams.
  • Fe scrubbing from Ni & CU PLS feeds.
  • Rare earths recovery and purification
