MICo® applications include water softening, taste and odor, and color correction, and removal of arsenic, nitrate, bromide, ammonia, and organic matter, such as DOC. The MIEX®1 Resin process was developed in Australia for the removal of natural organic material in water treatment. These process advantages will be achieved at the Wanneroo groundwater treatment plant by constructing the MIEX plant at the head of the treatment stream. trailer << /Size 99 /Info 68 0 R /Root 81 0 R /Prev 887971 /ID[<28bc7466c00207c9f54a07cfb78a94ee><28bc7466c00207c9f54a07cfb78a94ee>] >> startxref 0 %%EOF 81 0 obj << /Type /Catalog /Pages 69 0 R /JT 79 0 R /PageLabels 67 0 R >> endobj 97 0 obj << /S 238 /L 330 /Filter /FlateDecode /Length 98 0 R >> stream Note the narrow piping. The MIEX process is a novel ion exchange approach specifically developed for the removal of the dissolved organic content (DOC) from water. In: 2nd European Conference on filtration and separation, Compeigne, France, 12 October 2006. In 1965 Don Weiss and others at CSIRO became interested in the application of this concept to desalination, and developed a resin and a process called SIROTHERM®. To this end, the resin was allowed to settle in a conical tube and was placed above a magnet to accelerate the settling. Unfortunately, the process did not scale up to industrial scale well, both plants were quickly closed, and research into the area almost ceased. Abstract: The new developed ion exchange process SIX presents an advanced solution for a world-wide challenge: How to remove NOM/DOC as a first step in surface water treatment to improve efficiency of downstream processes and to improve water quality. 0000006689 00000 n MIEX® process as a pre-treatment removed a majority of small molecular weight organic matter (500–1000 Da). 0000037228 00000 n H��W�n�H}�W�ӂ4$�wQ��c2����3�xZ$1�H�{fc��{�����Ivm@�{U�����ٛ�:T�ZogA�R��_ZY����ez~�Gj�����S����W}������O���|?��:��j�. A second batch of pre-mix was made under close supervision, and used in production batches D6 and D7 – which also set solid, though not as badly. We used a unique magnetite media (magnetic) filter to capture resin fines from the MIEX process. CSIRO also discovered that smaller batches were less prone to setting solid. The MIEX process uses a specially developed magnetised ionic resin to attract the negatively charged dissolved organic carbon (DOC) compounds that can cause colouration in untreated water. Solution pH exhibited a remarkable impact on the adsorption process and the absorbed concentrations of the tested antibiotics were obtained around the neutral pH. Ixom Watercare and two leading Australian research organizations (Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organization and South Australian Water Corporation) worked together to develop a unique ion exchange process for the removal of DOC from potable water … The process makes water cleaner and safer at a lower cost than previous methods and in less time. [Source: CSIRO], Process diagram of a MIEX water treatment plant. What makes MIEX unique is a magnetic component that allows the resin to be used in a continuous … In the high reactor, raw water is fed to the base of the reactor vessel and is mixed with the MIEX ® resin and the ion exchange process occurs in a uniformly mixed fluidized bed. The MIEX® Treatment Process The MIEX® Treatment Process is an advanced ion exchange process that uses MIEX® Resin to remove target contaminants from water and wastewater streams. The removal of chloride on MIEX resin is an ion-exchange mechanism. This method removes dissolved organic carbon in the raw water, followed by pH adjustment and deep-bubble aeration, resin-polishing filters, disinfection, fluoridation, and two 1-MG ground storage tanks before distribution. SA Water: Don Bursill, Mary Drikas, Jim Morran. These process advantages will be achieved at the Wanneroo groundwater treatment plant by constructing the MIEX plant at the head of the treatment stream. MIEX® Treatment Systems have small footprints, very low waste volumes and are not subject to chromatographic peaking, allowing ion exchange to be used in a wide variety of applications and throughputs. Reduction of organics at the head of a water treatment plant is critical to lowering operational costs and improving plant performance. To make it suitable for drinking, water must be treated so that the suspended matter is removed by flocculation using alum or iron salts and any pathogens killed by disinfection with chlorine or ozone. The influence of MIEX® resin dose and membrane cut-off on natural organic matter removal (NOM) efficiency was analyzed. Initially resin losses were very high due to unsatisfactory settler design, but once the settler was re-designed with advice from Dr Nic Booker resin losses dropped to acceptable levels. 0000001736 00000 n Dissolved organic carbon organic carbon Subject Category: Miscellaneous see more details can be removed effectively as well as chlorite and chlorate using MIEX resin in real water. The first two batches, at 15 and 20 litre were fairly successful, though the resin particle size was too small. A further hiccup was encountered when supply of one of the critical raw materials in the pre-mix ceased, and a substitute had to be found rapidly. In conventional ion exchange the plastic beads are packed into a large steel or plastic column and impure water forced through under pressure to produce water of higher quality. [Source: Robin Müller], Animation of magnetic settling process. Placement of MIEX® Resin Technology in the Treatment Train The MIEX® resin technology was tested using raw water as the first step in the overall water treatment process. End-user response animation. Methods: In this study, the uptake of estradiol by a combined magnetic ion exchange resin - ultrafiltration process (MIEX-UF) was investigated. The persistence of these pharmaceuticals and inefficient removal by water treatment lead to accumulation in surface water and effluents with negative effects for aquatic life and human health. Additional modules can easily be added to increase the resin regeneration capacity to accommodate plant expansions. Further investigations showed that the wrong iron oxide had been used. The key process units include a gravity fed, high rate contactor vessel containing the MIEX Resin and the Resin Regeneration skid. Central to the system is a micro, strong base, magnetic ion exchange resin, which was specially developed and optimised for DOC removal. Methods: In this study, the uptake of estradiol by a combined magnetic ion exchange resin - ultrafiltration process (MIEX-UF) was investigated. Armed with that information, the batches from D8 onwards were more successful, and an ongoing lab program helped to continuously improve resin quality. The applied MIEX doses were 2, 4, 8, and 15 mL/L. These were used in the next two batches, which were completely successful. The resin was then patented, and in later years several variants and processes using it were also patented. Customers familiar with the very low waste volumes produced by the MIEX® ion exchange process had suggested that if this advantage could also be applied to nitrate removal applications, it would offer a significant advantage over the alternative treatment options. Magnetic ion exchange (MIEX®) resin can remove a majority of hydrophilic compounds and a significant amount of hydrophobic compounds from biologically treated secondary effluent within a short contact time of 20 min. ICI then approached CSIRO in 1992, and convinced them to re-start the work. MIEX® Treatment Systems have small footprints, very low waste volumes and are not subject to chromatographic peaking, allowing ion to exchange be used in a wide CSIRO agreed, and after considerable work to meet production, OHS and personnel requirements the first production batch (D5) was made in February 1997. As Mat Ballard recalled: The first steps up to 1.2 litre and then 2.0 litre were successful, but were as far as we could go in the lab. 0000001197 00000 n CSIRO then went to a local manufacturer – Yorkshire – who made the pre-mix in their larger scale lab equipment. The resin consisted of crosslinked polyvinyl alcohol beads, sometimes grafted with acrylates, containing magnetic oxides. MIEX®DOC process revealed to be more efficient in DOC removal than conventional treatment achieving the efficiencies in the range of 61-91 %, lowering disinfection by-products formation potential of the water. DOC itself is harmless, but it can interfere in these treatment processes. Mergen M, Jarvis P, Jefferson B & Parsons SA (2006) Impact of MIEX DOC resin pre-treatment on properties of coagulation flocs.. The resin has a magnetised component which allows the particles to act as weak magnets, giving them unique settling and other handling characteristics. Surprisingly, they asked CSIRO if they could make the required resin – about 20 batches – on the 200 litre scale! Central to the system is a micro, strong base, magnetic ion exchange resin, which was specially developed and optimised for DOC removal. The first two processes are integral to the main water treatment plant, while the resin regeneration is conducted in a … The MIEX process is a novel ion exchange approach specifically developed for the removal of the dissolved organic content (DOC) from water. It removed a majority of small molecular … 0000001218 00000 n the large clumps also mean that the primary resin beads can be made an order of magnitude smaller than conventional resin beads, and hence absorb ions from solution many times faster. While there were several routes to a possible resin for DOC removal, Ballard realised that most were not commercially viable due to toxicity or cost of raw materials. MIEX® is used as a pre-treatment at the start of a conventional water treatment plant. A full-scale (110 ML/d) potable water treatment plant (WTP) based on the MIEX process, an innovative new process based on a strong base anion-exchange resin with magnetic properties, has been operating in Perth Western Australia since 2001.

The problem was that CSIRO did not have adequate equipment for mixing the magnetic oxide into the resin pre-mix. The treated water was collected for PFAS analysis to evaluate the adsorption efficiency of the pristine resin. Ion-exchange resins are widely used in different separation, purification, and decontamination processes.The most common examples are water softening and water purification.In many cases ion-exchange resins were introduced in such processes as a more flexible alternative to the use of natural or artificial zeolites.Also, ion-exchange resins are highly effective in the biodiesel filtration process.

Process Parameters Optimization of Gallic Acid Removal from Water by MIEX Resin Based on Response Surface Methodology . The 99.9% recovery figure is based on the resin mass leaving the MIEX process in the treated water stream. Resin loss. [Source: Mat Ballard, CSIRO], Lab-scale ion exchange. DOC removal efficiency at Lever WTP depends largely on the raw water quality and ranges from 28 % for water of moderated quality to 89 % of significantly deteriorated quality. Aug 1st, 2002 The MIEX® advanced process, systems and resins were developed over an extended period stretching back to the mid 1980s. A full-scale (110 ML/d) potable water treatment plant (WTP) based on the MIEX process, an innovative new process based on a strong base anion-exchange resin with magnetic properties, has been operating in Perth Western Australia since 2001. Test batches in the lab with the raw materials showed that the problem lay with the iron oxide pre-mix. Subsequently, the exhausted MIEX was regenerated with a 10% w/w NaCl solution. The MIEX® treatment process is a patented process developed by Orica Watercare, Inc (Orica). Orica then constructed its own $10 million, 300 tonnes per year MIEX® resin manufacturing plant in Melbourne to supply resin to both Australia and the world. Unlike other MIEX® models, the MIEX® Mini utilizes downflow “in situ” regeneration – but does utilize upflow fluidized treatment and MIEX® resins. MIEX® DOC resin is NSF 61 Certified for use in drinking water processes. it is a batch, not a continuous process, and so harder to monitor and control. CSIRO: Mat Ballard, Don Weiss, Heng Taing, Mike Falkiner, Stuart Littler, Neil Furlong, Darrell Wells, George Georgakalis, Mike Wedding, Nick Booker, Steve Gray, Jim Bates, Rob Eldridge, David Adam, Ngoc Le, Steve Vickers, Tracy Appleby, ORICA: Hung Nguyen, Onn Chin, Matt Kirk, Russell Mills, Marin Sljunsky, Veronica Pearce, Stuart Harrison, Phil Ritchie, Ishmael. The 99.9% recovery figure is based on the resin mass leaving the MIEX process in the treated water stream. In contrast, the secondary effluent A/T ratios remained constant at ∼2.9 across the range of BV treatments (changes were statistically insignificant). Prof Bursill approached ICI, and convinced them to restart work with CSIRO on magnetic resins, this time targeted at DOC removal. The MIEX process proposed at Tarbert is based around using MIEX Resin developed by MIEX UK. School of Civil Engineering and Architecture, Anhui University of Technology, 59 Hudong Road, Maanshan 243002, China. SE treatment by the hybrid process of MIEX followed by ozonation was evaluated based on the removal of BOIs, OMPs, bio-toxicity and fluorescence, and more information on the inherent correlations between spectrographic indicators, OMPs, and bio-toxicity under the MIEX desorption process was provided. The MIEX® process uses a specially designed resin. While extremely successful, conventional ion exchange suffers from three problems: The problems with conventional ion exchange led to the idea of using a magnetic ion exchange resin in a stirred tank, and recovering the resin through its high density and/or magnetism. By 2011 there were 37 MIEX® systems operating internationally with a further 8 under construction. Resin loss. In the 1980s Prof Don Bursill of South Australia Water demonstrated that if DOC, which is a significant problem for Adelaide, could be removed from raw waters before treatment, there were considerable reductions in both alum and chlorine usage. [Source: CSIRO], CSIRO’s Benchtop demonstration MIEX® plant, with contactor/mixing tank on the left, and settler tank on the right: resin collects on the bottom of the settler and is pumped to regeneration and re-use in the contactor. This work attracted the attention of ICI Australia (now Orica), and they and the CSIRO continued to work on this technology for many years, culminating in two plants, at Osbourne in SA and Mirabooka in WA. This is a relatively common process used in drinking water treatment for the removal of natural organic matter. the resin can be used in a stirred tank instead of a column, because the particles are dense and will stick magnetically to each other when stirring stops, they form large clumps that settle rapidly. The MIEX® Resin Process The process for DOC removal based on the MIEX® resin includes resin contacting with water, resin separation and recycle, and resin regeneration.

It can be used in a stirred tank, followed by settling, or (more recently) as a fluidised bed. 0000003947 00000 n Orica then contracted with SA Water to install the MIEX® process into a new water treatment plant to be built at Mount Pleasant in the Adelaide Hills. We had successfully scaled up the resin synthesis by a factor of almost 1 000 by September 1995 – or so we thought. It is a continuous ion exchange process performed in tanks, which is maintained in a steady state by the withdrawal and regeneration of loaded resin, and the return of this resin to the process. Afterwards supernatant was decanted into a stirred magnetically cell for the subsequent UF treatment. The surface water became less humic after MIEX treatment, as demonstrated by the decrease in A/T ratio compared to the raw surface water, but then humic content increased with continuous resin use. The data were compared with the efficiencies of the conventional unit processes for organics removal at Lever WTP. A very small amount of resin (5-10 mL settled resin per litre water) is used to exchange organics from water during 15-30 min detention time in a continuous, stirred tank reactor. MIEX® Resin The name MIEX® … When made at small scale, it remained cool, but when made at commercial scale, it became quite hot. The process is a pre-treatment incorporating MIEX® DOC resin for the removal of DOC. The next step up was 200 litre: the first two batches were quite poor, with small particle size, and poor magnetic oxide incorporation. MIEX® advanced ion exchange solutions are applied using a MIEX® or MICo® process, via MIEX® treatment systems (MagnaPak®, Mini, Dual RateStage, High Rate or Integra) and utilizing MIEX® resins (DOC or GOLD) or (Plus) resin and media blends. %PDF-1.3 %���� Of these, only three are operating in Australia: at Mount Pleasant in South Australia, Wanneroo in Western Australia and Airey’s Inlet, Victoria. This was a small plant designed to test MIEX® and other new technologies. MIEX resin and its process were developed by the Australian company and research organizations Orica, Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organization, and South Aus-tralianWaterCorporation.ThepatentsonMIEXresinandthe MIEX process were issued in 2001 and 2003, respectively [13††, 14††]. In addition, it can promote bacterial re-growth in pipes by acting as a ‘food’. In the high reactor, raw water is fed to the base of the reactor vessel and is mixed with the MIEX ® resin and the ion exchange process occurs in a uniformly mixed fluidized bed. The team involved in the development of the MIEX® process were as follows: The development of the MIEX® process has been recognised by the following awards: We are committed to child safety and to the implementation of Child Safe principles and procedures. METHODS: In this study, the uptake of estradiol by a combined magnetic ion exchange resin - ultrafiltration process (MIEX-UF) was investigated. The MICo® process and MIEX® Plus resin blend that Ixom recommends will depend on your unique treatment needs. Integrated process Even very low MIEX® resin doses, significantly improved final water quality. IX has been introduced by the WHO as a nitrate removal technology and approved as the Best Available Technology (BAT) for nitrate removal by US EPA. Kelly: For more than ten years now, Oracle Watercare's been at the forefront of advanced ion exchange for water treatment, especially in the municipal market. The MIEX ® resin process uses mixed tanks for contacting resin with water. After about a year’s effort, a viable resin had been developed, and it performed well in DOC removal tests at SA Water’s Australian Water Quality Centre. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
