CC Technology – Process
Cooling Crystallization is a well known and broadly used process in the industry. However, Cool separations brings it to a new level. With our unique crystallizer design we can reach temperatures down to -30 ⁰C without scaling issues.
The process is similar to our EFC and FC processes with the main difference being the first crystallizing component, which in this case is always salt (and not water / ice). Depending on their crystallizing temperature, salts can be recovered selectively from the CC crystallizer.
After the salt recovery step, the remaining solution can be treated further in an EFC crystallizer in order to reach near or Zero Liquid Discharge.
Cooling Crystallization facilitates recovery of valuable salts for commercialising, re-integration into existing processes or purely for discharge as solid waste is easier to handle and cheaper to dispose.
