A New Process For Sulfate Removal From Industrial Waters

Step 2 -- Metal Hydroxide Precipitation. Wastewater with an initial sulfate concentration below 8000 mg/L, or which has already been treated using gypsum precipitation, is adjusted to a pH of 10.5 with hydrated lime. This removes metals as hydroxides and precipitates more gypsum, so approximately 2000 mg/L of sulfate remains in solution.
