This project was concerned with the effects of a reduction/oxidation filter on water quality in Western Michigan University's Pilot Paper Plant. The filter was installed after the clarifier in the pilot deinking system. In other applications the filter has been found to remove heavy metals, chlorine, and also reduce the amount of scaling in a system. This application of the filter showed inconsistant results with no definite beneficial trends.
