Abstract:This project was conducted to evaluate the technical and economic potential for ultrafiltration to recycle aqueous cleaning solutions used at the Ford Stamping Plant. Membranes selected for this project were chosen for their ability to remove oil, grease, and particulate contaminants from aqueous cleaning solutions. An ultrafiltration system equipped with a series of 8 (10 foot long) Koch tubular membranes with a total membrane surface area of 17.6 square feet was retro-fitted to the existing Ford die washing system and evaluated for a period of 6 weeks. The system ran for approximately 575 operating hours and generated over 20,000 gallons of recycled "permeate" solution during the course of the project.
