oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Demineralisation of saline water

Volume 7, Issue 10
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



The paper deals with experiments carried out between 1953 and 1957 as a joint venture, by South African Gold Mining Companies and the South African Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, on the demineralisation of mine water using the electrodialysis process. The work is surveyed in broad outline and is presented as an example of the application of electrodialysis, a relatively new technique for lowering the concentration of dissolved salts in water, which may be of increasing consequence to Civil Engineers.
