Acid/Metal Separation

The Scanacon ModuFlex or MiniFlex acid-Metal separation system (APU) allows for continuous production in acid-metal finishing processes. By continuously removing dissolved metal contaminants, it enables near indefinite reuse of the finishing solution, reducing acid purchases and waste volumes. The system operates in series with a process filtration apparatus and returns a purified solution with limited acid loss (5% to 15%) for reuse. Only water is needed for regeneration, and the waste product is a weakly acidic solution that can be easily neutralized. With over 25 years of experience and a modular design that allows for expansion and redundancy, Scanacon is the world leader in acid-Metal separation equipment.

ModuFlex

The Scanacon ModuFlex is a highly efficient acid recovery system designed for a wide range of acid-based finishing processes in the stainless steel and titanium industries. It is specifically intended for hot and cold rolled and finished products, acid milling, etching of cast products, and single acid electrolytic processes.

Each modular unit has a maximum capacity of 500 L/hr and can be combined to handle larger flows ranging from 500 L/hr to 2,000 L/hr. This flexibility allows for a scalable solution to meet the specific needs of each application.

By implementing the ModuFlex, significant benefits can be achieved including improved productivity, reduced energy and resource consumption, decreased chemical use, improved health and safety conditions, improved economics, reduced environmental impact, and improved product quality. These benefits make the ModuFlex an ideal solution for the stainless steel market.

ModuFlex XL

The ModuFlex XL is a high-capacity acid recovery system that functions similarly to the ModuFlex. With a capacity of up to 2,000 L/hr per module, multiple modules operating in parallel can provide capacities exceeding 2,000 L/hr. This system is designed for mixed and single acid recovery from hot and cold rolled and finished stainless and titanium wrought products, as well as large-scale acid milling and etching processes of cast products and single acid electrolytic processes.

Investing in the ModuFlex XL can result in several benefits, including improved productivity and efficiency, reduced energy and resource consumption, decreased chemical usage, reduced health and safety liabilities, improved economics, and minimized environmental impact. Additionally, the system can lead to an improvement in product quality.

MiniFlex

The MiniFlex systems are designed for small-scale acid finishing operations that use single or mixed acid solutions with Hydrofluoric acid (HF). Some common applications of MiniFlex include recovering mixed acids from cold-rolled and finished stainless steel products, mixed acid milling from cast products, and removing metals from acid cleaning and passivation tanks.

Available in four standard sizes with capacities ranging from 20 L/hr to 75 L/hr, the MiniFlex offers numerous benefits to its users. With MiniFlex, businesses can eliminate bottlenecks and improve productivity, conserve energy and resources, decrease chemical consumption, reduce health and safety risks, enhance their economics, minimize environmental impact, and ultimately improve product quality.

SM-ModuFlex

Scanacon’s SM-ModuFlex systems provide advanced control and efficiency in the pickling and milling process for special metal producers. These systems are specifically designed to address the challenges faced by producers of titanium, zirconium, tungsten and other special metals, where separating dissolved ions from pickling and milling solutions has been a challenge due to the presence of complex metal species in HNO3-HF acid solutions.

The SM-ModuFlex systems utilize a separation process that effectively eliminates the interference of these complex species, allowing for near-indefinite reuse of the finishing solution. This significantly reduces the need for acid purchases and reduces waste volume, resulting in a more efficient and cost-effective process. The systems are available in a modular design, with standard sizes up to 1000 L/hr, and multiple modules can be used in parallel to achieve even larger capacities.

By utilizing the Scanacon SM-ModuFlex systems, you can expect to eliminate bottlenecks, increase productivity, save energy and resources, decrease chemical consumption, reduce health and safety liabilities, improve economics, minimize environmental impact, and improve product quality.
