Moreover, the silica removal mechanism was analyzed under different operational conditions. Hierarchical magnesium oxide (MgO) microspheres with high adsorption capacity of heavy metal ions and potent antibacterial activity were synthesized by an aerosol-assisted method. Previous studies have demonstrated that aluminium salts, calcium oxide, and magnesium oxide are capable of removing silica (Tutus and Eroglu 2003; Ma et al. This invention relates particularly to a Process for treating and urifying natural waters, nd relates more especially to the treatment of such waters as contain silica and/or its coof Pounds, such waters being distinguished from brines In which the silica, together with other impurities, is present and is removed therefrom, as a preliminary step to the recovery of other substances such as sodium chloride, sodium sulphate, sodium carbonate, sodium borate, and 1i Otassium chloride, as distinguished from directly Preparing a natural water for use in boilers, or for other industrial Purposes. It has been found that the addition of magnesium oxide to water in a chemical mixing tank requires approximately one-half hour for the hydrolysis, so that if the magnesium oxide remains in contact with the water in the chemical mixing tank for a period of time greater than one-half hour, and the mixture is then fed to the water to be treated, a proper efficiency for silica removal will not be obtained. fciency of silica removal, coninal hardness as calcium carbonate was 124 P. P. M., and the silica 20 P. P.M. oxide.) s anY cheaP magnesium sa.iG Pt . Threshold limit for RO recovery and required silica removal were firstly determined by a removalâsaturationârecovery curve. NYACOL offers magnesium oxide and magnesium hydroxide (MgOH2) in two different dispersions. As is well known, high alkalinity in treated water is exceedingly undesirable for industrial purposes, and especially in the case of boiler feedwater, which fact further indicates the need for control In the present process of the quantity of magnesium oxide, both alone and when used with other alkalies for silica removal, In order that the most efficient results may be obtained.

P.

As the temperature of apx1mately 950 C., is substantially the same as t which is ordinarily maintained in hot-procwater softeners, it will be apparent that a h degree of efficiency of the process can be ected, when using the same for silica removal such softeners concurrently with the so-called e-soda process. magnesium oxide are capable of removing silica (Tutus and Eroglu 2003; Ma et al. S Test 4-Using magnesium sulfate. In situ precipitation works much better than already precipitated magnesium, probably due to surface area of the precipitant and proximity to a silica molecule. By way of further comparison, such natural waters as are intended to be sed for idustrial Purposes rarely contain more than 0.1% total solids (equlvalent to 1,000 20 P. P. M.), whereas in brine there is commonly as much as 40.0% to 50.0% or even more of suspended and dissolved solids and other impurities, and at least as much as 0.3% of silica alone (equivalent to 3,000 p. P. M. or more). Two applications are described where magnesium oxide can be used to purify process water in two ways: to filter out suspended solids and to precipitate dissolved heavy metals. d Table VI has been prepared in order to graphe1 65 ically illustrate advantages possessed by the pres1 ent magnesium oxide process, as compared with e other processes, which to the uninitiated might S appear to be closely allied therewith, if not acS tually the equivalent thereof.

The low hardness of deinking paper mill â¦ in solution and the silica removed per unit of magnesium oxide, has the general form of an adsorption curve. A brackish water source containing high magnesium concentration (333 mg/L as CaCO 3) for reverse osmosis (RO) was studied for silica scaling. The soluble silica cannot be removed by filtration. By adding first 20 P. p.-M., and then 40 P. P. U. of sodium hydroxide, the hardness was substantially further reduced, but with a sharp increase in alkalinity the efficiency of the silica removal was lessened, which was consistent with the results shown in Table II. .P.M. ft. for U. S. P. light magnesium oxid to 51.5 lbs. It should be added that by increasing the sodium hydroxide to the neighbor0 hood of 40 P. P. M., and the magnesium oxide to approximately 0.3 gram, this process also serves in lieu of the lime-soda process, while simultaneously operating at high efficiency in the removal of silica.
