Acid Recovery and Filtration up-grade for existing system


Shanghai, Hong Kong (2014-06-05) – Scanacon Asia Ltd. and (Shanghai) Environmental Technologies Co., Ltd. are pleased to announce they have been awarded an Acid Management project from the stainless steel strip producer Zhangjiagang Pohang Stainless Steel (ZPSS) in Zhangjiagang, Jiangsu Province, P.R. of China. The order includes an up-grade of existing Acid Recovery System and Acid Filtration System to an ASRA-SAFU for the existing system at CAPL 1.


Scanacon will be delivering the system in August 2014 and it will be up-and-running by October. ZPSS was Scanacon’s first customer in Mainland China and the system that will be up-graded was installed in 2001. This system for CAPL 1 was the first of 3 system installed at the ZPSS plant and the first of 8 Acid Management Systems delivered to the POSCO Group. The system has worked continuously for 13 years in a tough environment and proves the robustness and quality of Scanacon’s products.


The upgrade of the Recovery System will give the customer a better level control, more accurate flow rates and longer life-time of pumps while the upgrade of the Filter System will result in higher sludge removal, minimized acid waste and less water consumption.


ZPSS is one of China’s largest stainless steel producers belonging to one of the world’s largest stainless steel groups and we look forward to more co-operations in the near future.
