Case Study - Toxfree (Part of the Cleanaway Group)
The TPS miniChem pH and miniChem ORP process monitors were the perfect solution for this complex process as they are easy to install and easy to use, and also waterproof and very durable.
Toxfree is one of Australia’s leading environmental and waste management service providers. For many years, they have employed reliable and sustainable practices to reduce waste products for industrial sectors, creating a safer environment for Australians.
Many present day manufacturers produce toxic effluents, especially within industries that process materials such as paper, textiles, photochemicals, plastics, products from mining and metallurgy. One of the main toxins produced is cyanide, and depending on its form and exposure - it can be poisonous and even lethal to living organisms.
Toxfree has helped many organisations with their waste management programs, including the removal of toxic cyanide from industrial wastewater. Cyanide is a carbon - nitrogen radical and is commonly treated by the alkaline-chlorination-oxidation method. This process involves chlorine or hypochlorite treating the cyanide effluent to produce sodium cyanate, which is further oxidised to produce carbon dioxide and nitrogen.
Throughout this process, pH and ORP are the most important parameters to be measured and it was only natural that Toxfree had chosen to use TPS Australian made instruments. The TPS miniChem pH and miniChem ORP process monitors were the perfect solution for this complex process as they are easy to install and easy to use, and also waterproof and very durable.
