Water treatment description
BACKGROUND AND SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a waste water treatment process, and more particularly, the present invention relates to an industrial waste water treatment process which turns an industrial waste water into clean water for repeated use.
The waste water of a factory shall be properly treated before discharging into a drainage system, so that water pollution problem can be eliminated or minimized. However, it is a pity that the treated water can not be collected for repeated use.
The present invention has been accomplished under the aforesaid circumstances. It is therefore an object of the present invention to provide an industrial waste water treatment process which eliminates the industrial waste water from causing an environmental pollution problem. It is another object of the present invention to provide an industrial waste water treatment process which makes the industrial waste water practical for repeated use. It is still another object of the present invention to provide an industrial waste water treatment process which requires less installation space. It is still another object of the present invention to provide an industrial waste water treatment process which is easy to maintain.

FIG. 1 is a flow chart showing the processing procedure of the industrial waste water treatment process according to the present invention.
DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT
In processing iron pipes, the iron rust must be removed before the process of spray painting. Removing the iron rust from the surface of iron pipes is generally made by dipping iron pipes into different troughs which contain water or different chemical solutions. As illustrated in FIG. 1, iron pipes are dipped in degreasing trough 11, water trough 12, sulfate trough 13, sulfate trough 14, water trough 15, oxalate trough 16, phosphate trough 17, phosphate trough 18, and water trough 19. Dipping iron pipes in the troughs or removing them from the troughs may cause the water or chemical solutions to overflow. The waste water from the troughs is guided by a gutter 2 into a waste water reservoir 3 through a wire gauze filter 31. A chemical solution 32 which contains NaOH (caustic soda) and H.sub.2 O at the ratio of 25:75 by volume is filled into the waste water reservoir 3 to destroy the acidic substances in the waste water contained therein. The waste water is then pumped to a water filtration tower 5 by a water pump 4. The water filtration tower 5 is comprised of a plurality of filtration tanks 51, 52, 53 with one above another. The top filtration tank 51 has an outlet pipe 511 connected to the intermediate filtration tank 52; the intermediate filtration tank 52 has an outlet pipe 521 connected to the bottom filtration tank 53; the bottom filtration tank 53 has an outlet pipe 531 connected to a depositing reservoir 6. The filtration tanks 51, 52, 53 have drain valves 512, 522, 532 which can be conveniently opened when the filtration tanks have to be cleaned. The filtration tanks 51, 52, 53 are similar in structure, each comprised of a layer of pebbles 501, a layer of wire gauze filter 502, a layer of active carbons 503, a layer of sands 504, and a layer of limes 505 respectively properly arranged with one above another. After the filtration process, the filtrated water is then pumped from the depositing reservoir 6 to a water tower 8 by another water pump 7, and then guided by a water pipe 9 to the troughs 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 for repeated use.
