The Carbo Ejector Carbonate Removal System by American Chemical and Equipment
American Chemical and Equipment is very proud of the service they provide and of their high-quality products. One glowing example is their new Carbo Ejector Carbonate Removal System. This particular unit is an innovative system used for carbonate removal from plating baths. This quality equipment features a continuous “flow through” design with an elevated rate of the removal of carbonate. These exceptional products are designed specifically for the efficient and economic removal of excess carbonates and other type salts from plating baths.
With the Carbo Ejector Carbonate Removal Device, there are no more small batch treatments with an extended waiting period and lengthy processing time. Other outstanding features include:
- Efficient, high BTU output LOW TEMP refrigeration with an ultra- modern screw type compressor.
- The option of liquid or an air- cooled condenser unit.
- Precisely controlled treatment temperature with a wider range of low temperatures if needed.
- Low volume of plating bath (around 60 Gallon) contained in the treatment tank.
- Drum crystallization with ejection of portion of free-flowing carbonate slush about every one and a half minutes.
The Principle operation of the Carbo Ejector Carbonate Removal System is based on the premise of inducing the crystallization of accumulated unwanted salt. It is accomplished by lowering the solution temperature below the compound’s saturation point. This then drops out it’s excess carbonate (salt) from the solution to form a small crystalized slush.
Nearly all competitors use the “batch method” of crystallization, This is very limited and time consuming. It also requires significant attention and monitoring. The Carbo Ejector eliminates all this extra work and trouble. It is truly new technology and “state of the art”. Please call American Chemical at 800-734-CHEM with any question or for further information regarding the Carbo Ejector.

Carbo eJector Features and Operating Principles
The Carbo eJector TM Carbonate Removal System is designed to efficiently and economically remove excess carbonates or other type salts from plating baths and various industrial process solutions.
The Principle operation of the Carbo eJector TM devices are based upon inducing crystallization of accumulated undesired salt. This is accomplished by lowering the solution temperature below the compound’s saturation point, which then drops out it’s excess carbonate (salt) from the solution to form a small crystalized slush.
Examples of Salts other than Sodium Carbonate are: Ferrous Chloride, Ferrous Sulfate, Aluminum Sulfate, Aluminum Hydroxide, etc. which are compounds with low solubility at lowered temperatures.
Typical industrial electrolytes and baths that the Carbo eJector TM can separate waste build up from include: Alkaline Zinc, Alkaline Zinc Nickel, Cyanide Zinc, Cyanide or Alkaline Copper, Anodizing Baths etc.
Carbo eJector TM Carbonate Removal Devices perform this treatment in an innovative manner by using a continuous *Flow Through Design at a rate of ~1 to 2 Gallons per minute of the cleaned bath through the Treatment Compartment. From here, formed Crystallized Slush contaminants are continuously and mechanically ejected from the plating solution in the Crystallization Compartment and in the next step, separated from the liquid by several possible methods with varied efficiency. 1.0) The simplest method being gravity filtration accomplished by the furnished filter bag totes. 2.0) The best possible separation being achieved by quick centrifugation or spin drying, with the possibility of returning the now cleaned solution back to the process tank potentially saving significant money and resources.
Please ask about those additional options if the volume of removed contaminant would offset the cost of treated bath or if the environmental requirements or concerns warrants such additional step.
- *Most competitors use the “batch method” of crystallization which is limited, time consuming and requires significant attention and monitoring compared to the Flow Thru design of the Carbo eJector TM.
