The Conventional Brine Filtration in Chlor-Alkali industries is done using clarifier and precoat systems which is time consuming and requires huge amount of electricity .It also generates large amount of sludge causing environmental pollution .The maintenance cost is also high these problems are overcome by single stage brine filtration system. This report compares the present and conventional filtration systems and its benefits. The use of new system like PTFE membrane for brine filtration is also included. This report is based on the study conducted on one of the Chlor - Alkali plant in Kerala.
