The MIEX´® DOC resin … 0000002169 00000 n MIEX® DOC resin is NSF 61 Certified for use in drinking water processes. by Qiang Zhou 1, Lei Ding 1,2,*, Yunhua Zhu 1,2, Meiying Zhong 1,2 and Chuchu Yang 1. The process makes water cleaner and safer at a lower cost than previous methods and in less time. The resin is a strong base anion exchange developed with improvements resulting in high affinity for the removal of dissolved organic carbon (DOC). The influence of MIEX® resin dose and membrane cut-off on natural organic matter removal (NOM) efficiency was analyzed. 0000001197 00000 n The key process units include a gravity fed, high rate contactor vessel containing the MIEX Resin and the Resin Regeneration skid. [Source: Robin Müller], Animation of magnetic settling process. [external links]. Afterwards supernatant was decanted into a stirred magnetically cell for the subsequent UF treatment. to treat the highly coloured Cape waters of South Africa. 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 … MICo® applications include water softening, taste and odor, and color correction, and removal of arsenic, nitrate, bromide, ammonia, and organic matter, such as DOC. Once production was under control, Orica extended the production run to 40 batches, then extended it again when they won a contract to install MIEX® at the Wanneroo water treatment plant in WA. The objective of this article is to analyze characteristics and application of MIEX Resin in engineering projects, and hence provide critical review on merits and demerits of the resin. MIEX® was far more successful in the USA and Europe. Subsequently, the exhausted MIEX was regenerated with a 10% w/w NaCl solution. MIEX® process as a pre-treatment removed a majority of small molecular weight organic matter (500–1000 Da). 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 When made at small scale, it remained cool, but when made at commercial scale, it became quite hot. The applied MIEX doses were 2, 4, 8, and 15 mL/L. 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. 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. Ion exchange is a chemical process in which ions (impurities) in a water solution are adsorbed onto a solid, usually polymer (plastic) bead. In contrast, the secondary effluent A/T ratios remained constant at ∼2.9 across the range of BV treatments (changes were statistically insignificant). The MIEX® process can also be used to significantly reduce treated water color levels from 60% to 95% through the removal of DOC. https://csiropedia.csiro.au/MIEX-water-purification-process The next step was the process bay, CSIRO’s chemical pilot plant. The MIEX process is a novel ion exchange approach specifically developed for the removal of the dissolved organic content (DOC) from water. We used a unique magnetite media (magnetic) filter to capture resin fines from the MIEX process. 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. Unfortunately, both surface and bore water in Australia often have high levels of DOC. This process is operating at full scale on various plants in Australia, USA, Europe and being tested in other regions around the world. A much larger plant opened at Wanneroo in Western Australia in 2002 and a small plant at Airey’s Inlet, Victoria in 1997. By 2011 there were 37 MIEX® systems operating internationally with a further 8 under construction. 0000006689 00000 n The data were compared with the efficiencies of the conventional unit processes for organics removal at Lever WTP. 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. 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. He realised that this was not possible using conventional ion exchange due to a ‘Catch-22′ situation: the water had to be treated before it could be put through ion-exchange columns, but it needed to have the DOC removed before it was treated. 0000006828 00000 n 0000000727 00000 n 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. 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. 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. 0000001531 00000 n It can be used in a stirred tank, followed by settling, or (more recently) as a fluidised bed. 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. It usually contains several impurities: suspended solid matter, such as dirt, leaves and so on; waterborne diseases such as Escherichia coli, giardia or worse; and dissolved organic carbon (DOC), also known as natural organic matter (NOM) and as ‘Colour’. What makes MIEX unique is a magnetic component that allows the resin to be used in a continuous ion exchange process… Orica Watercare refers to these as Dual Stage and Hi Rate. 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. The first MIEX® pilot plant was a 200 kilolitre unit at Hope Valley. 0000086484 00000 n For the MIEX-UF hybrid process, briefly, appropriate dose of MIEX resin was added to feed water and mixed for 30 min followed by 30 min of settling. SA Water: Don Bursill, Mary Drikas, Jim Morran. MIEX® resin technology is ideally suited . Instead, he focused on creating a resin that had adequate performance at reasonable cost. Central to the system is a micro, strong base, magnetic ion exchange resin, which was specially developed and optimised for DOC removal. After that, the resin is separated and treated water removed from the process for further treatment in a downstream settling unit. The MIEX® advanced process, systems and resins were developed over an extended period stretching back to the mid 1980s. 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 CSIRO also discovered that smaller batches were less prone to setting solid. The process is a pre-treatment incorporating MIEX® DOC resin for the removal of DOC. To this end, the resin was allowed to settle in a conical tube and was placed above a magnet to accelerate the settling. He then had the insight that a resin like the ICI/CSIRO SIROTHERM® might be able to do the job because it did not require the use of packed columns. 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 fully assembled regeneration skids have a small footprint allowing for low installation costs. 80 0 obj << /Linearized 1 /O 82 /H [ 814 404 ] /L 889699 /E 89309 /N 10 /T 887981 >> endobj xref 80 19 0000000016 00000 n In the fluidized bed the magnetic particles are attracted to each other to form large agglomerates that form a stable resin suspension at hydraulic loading rates of up to 20 m/hr. The MIEX®1 Resin process was developed in Australia for the removal of natural organic material in water treatment. The MIEX® Mini is a packaged ion exchange system that uses MIEX® or MICo® Resins to remove targeted species from water and waste-water streams in low flow applications. DOC can have a major impact on treated water quality and the treatment process, including: reacting with disinfectants to form harmful disinfection by-products (DBPs), influencing the appearance and water color, taste and odor, 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. MIEX® is now a significant part of the Orica Watercare business. The objective of the study was to compare the treatment efficiency obtained with the MIEX®DOC process and ultrafiltration as well as to investigate the effect of MIEX®DOC water pretreatment on the performance of ultrafiltration membranes. 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 water we drink comes mostly from dams and rivers. Process Parameters Optimization of Gallic Acid Removal from Water by MIEX Resin Based on Response Surface Methodology . MIEX is an innovative ion exchange resin that cost-effectively removes dissolved organic carbon (DOC), a precursor to disinfection by-products (DBPs) in drinking water. 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. The WTP treats groundwater with magnetic ion exchange (MIEX¨) treatment technology. MIEX® Background. D5 was a disaster: it set into one solid lump in the 200 litre reactor. The resin was then patented, and in later years several variants and processes using it were also patented. Since MIEX is in a slurry form, its dose was determined based on v/v concentration. The transmittance at the assigned bands was significantly lower for the combinations of coagulation or MIEX with BAC treatment than the standalone processes (Figure 4b), indicating that the sequential treatment process was more effective for removing the organic matter resulting in less deposition of organics on the surface of the MF membrane. [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. Unfortunately for the people of Adelaide, MIEX® has not been installed at any other water treatment plants in that city. 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. 2. End-user response animation. 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: Orica], The MIEX section of the Mt Pleasant plant. What makes MIEX unique is a magnetic component that allows the resin to be used in a continuous … 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.

MIEX is a commercially available anion exchange resin and an ion exchange process used in drinking water treatment. During the 1990s a team of Australian scientists from CSIRO and the company Orica, in collaboration with the South Australian Water Corporation, developed a new way to remove organic materials, from the water supply. 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. 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. A detailed description of the process can be found by opening the PDF in the Sources below. Mergen M, Jarvis P, Jefferson B & Parsons SA (2006) Impact of MIEX DOC resin pre-treatment on properties of coagulation flocs.. The MIEX® resin process uses mixed tanks for contacting resin with water. This led to the choice of glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) as the backbone of the resin, and maghemite (γ-Fe2O3) as the magnetic oxide. 0000001372 00000 n This is a relatively common process used in drinking water treatment for the removal of natural organic matter. Therefore, MIEX resin is a promising technology for the removal of chlorite from aqueous solution. The advantages of using the MIEX® resin as a pre-treatment step allows for; ¾ improved final water quality, ¾ reduced THM formation, MIEX® process reduces dissolved organic oxygen in groundwater Outbreaks of Dimethyl Trisulphide in the Wanneroo water distribution system in Western Australia resulted in the construction of the world's first large-scale MIEXRegistered water treatment plant. Mat Ballard, who had just joined CSIRO from ICI, was selected to lead the research program. MIEX resin and its process were developed by the Australian company and research organizations Orica, Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organization, and South Australian Water Corporation. The first two processes are integral to the main water treatment plant, while the resin regeneration is conducted in a … Once they are fully loaded, the beads can be recovered and regenerated by using brine to desorb the ions. To make it suitable for drinking, water must be treated so that the suspended matter is removed, and any pathogens killed by disinfection with chlorine or ozone. Introduction Incising demand for high quality drinking water results in seeking new effective process es of water treatment… It was one thing to make 60 g of resin in a 200 ml reactor in the lab, and quite another to make enough to supply a water treatment plant – even a small one of several megalitres per day. DOC itself is harmless, but it can interfere in these treatment processes. 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. These process advantages will be achieved at the Wanneroo groundwater treatment plant by constructing the MIEX plant at the head of the treatment stream. 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. 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. MIEX® process was specifically useful in removing the hydrophilic portion of DOC in the secondary effluent, which is the major component in water. Note the narrow piping. Before using MIEX, it was rinsed with DI water three times of the volume of the resin. 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††]. MIEX® Resin The name MIEX® … The water we drink comes mostly from dams and rivers and contains various impurities such as dirt, leaves, Escherichia coli, giardia, and dissolved organic carbon (DOC). A novel magnetic ion exchange resin called MIEX Resin is being utilized in potable water treatment, which indicates significant advantages. We had successfully scaled up the resin synthesis by a factor of almost 1 000 by September 1995 – or so we thought. 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. Ballard MJ, 2011, Personal communication. Water Online Radio: Tell us about the new MICO process and how it differs from MIEX. Resin loss. The MIEX® treatment process is a patented process developed by Orica Watercare, Inc (Orica). Specifically, it can increase the amount of alum that is required for flocculation, and it can also react with chlorine or ozone to form small quantities of toxic tri-halo methanes (THMs). Frantic lab investigations slowly tracked down the problem: the pre-mix was temperature sensitive. 1. 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. The resin consisted of crosslinked polyvinyl alcohol beads, sometimes grafted with acrylates, containing magnetic oxides. Article MIEX Resin Water Treatment Process. it was called the MIEX® process, the acronym for magnetic ion exchange. Resin loss. 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. an ion exchange process used in drinking water treatment. The adsorption kinetics of antibiotics on the MIEX resin could be simulated by the pseudo-second-order model (R2=0.99), and the adsorption isotherm data were well described by the Langmuir model (R2=0.97). The removal of chloride on MIEX resin is an ion-exchange mechanism. This plant has been configured so that a combined MIEX-coagulation (MIEX-C) process can be operated in parallel with a conventional enhanced … 0000002786 00000 n For instance, MICo® SOF is an advanced fluidized bed ion exchange treatment process that can achieve softening, DOC and bromide … In the end, almost 200 batches of MIEX® resin were made at CSIRO. 0000001949 00000 n 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. The MIEX process is a novel ion exchange approach specifically developed for the removal of the dissolved organic content (DOC) from water. %PDF-1.3 %���� The MIEX® advanced process, systems and resins were developed over an extended period stretching back to the mid 1980s. The treated water was collected for PFAS analysis to evaluate the adsorption efficiency of the pristine resin. CSIRO then went to a local manufacturer – Yorkshire – who made the pre-mix in their larger scale lab equipment. 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. MIEX is an innovative ion exchange resin that cost-effectively removes dissolved organic carbon (DOC), a precursor to disinfection by-products (DBPs) in drinking water. Aug 1st, 2002 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. Published by Elsevier Ltd. water quality. 0000000814 00000 n Prof Bursill approached ICI, and convinced them to restart work with CSIRO on magnetic resins, this time targeted at DOC removal. 0000003947 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.

Unlike other MIEX® models, the MIEX® Mini utilizes downflow “in situ” regeneration – but does utilize upflow fluidized treatment and MIEX® resins. The development of the MIEX® resin and water treatment process is well documented as a team effort between the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) who developed the resin, South Australian Water Corporation who developed the water treatment application and ICI Australia (later to become Orica after divestment by ICI PLC) who commercialized the technology. The resin has a magnetised component which allows the particles to act as weak magnets, giving them unique settling and other handling characteristics. MIEX Resin Treatment Alum Coagulation Clarification Raw Water Filtration Product Water Pre-chlorine Alum Figure 4: Wanneroo GWTP Process, including MIEX® Plant The results from Trial 2 showed that greater than 75% DOC and 90% NSRS removal could be consistently achieved when the resin process was used in conjunction with conventional or MIEX® is used as a pre-treatment at the start of a conventional water treatment plant. The addition of Plus resin to a process train with MIEX resin allows for one treatment process to remove both DOC and hardness, where a single brine waste stream can be sent to sewer at a full-scale plant, completely removing lime chemical addition and sludge waste disposal for precipitative softening processes. MIEX Resin Treatment Alum Coagulation Clarification Raw Water Filtration Product Water Pre-chlorine Alum Figure 4: Wanneroo GWTP Process, including MIEX® Plant The results from Trial 2 showed that greater than 75% DOC and 90% NSRS removal could be consistently achieved when the resin process was used in conjunction with conventional or Keywords: MIEX®DOC; Ultrafiltration; Natural organic matter; Integrated process 1. 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 MIEX process proposed at Tarbert is based around using MIEX Resin developed by MIEX UK. This was a small plant designed to test MIEX® and other new technologies. 0000003986 00000 n Two bed volumes of the solution were added into a conical tube with the exhausted resins and stirred for 30, 60, 90 and 120 min. While GMA is not stable to strong acids and bases, it does have the advantage that many different functional groups could be attached through the reactive epoxy ring. 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.
