Results of an extensive investigation involving continuous flow ultrafiltration with commercially-available, negatively-charged, non-cellulosic membranes, are presented for specific industrial processing solutions containing various heavy metals. The industrial processing solutions are obtained from a copper smelting plant (scrubber blowdown water) and a selenium-tellurium recovery plant (acid processing water). At a transmembrane pressure of 5. 6 multiplied by 10**5 N/m**2, 73 to 97% removals of dissolved heavy metals are obtained. The design of a full-scale water reuse system involving multiple-pass recycle is established by computer simulation and recursive mass balance equations.
