Coagulation and Flocculation in Water and Wastewater by John Bratby

By John Bratby

Coagulation and Flocculation in Water and Wastewater therapy offers a entire account of coagulation and flocculation ideas and applied sciences in one quantity protecting theoretical rules to functional functions. completely revised and up to date because the 1st variation it's been steadily transformed and elevated in scope to cater for the necessities of practitioners concerned with water and wastewater remedy. an intensive gamut of remedy situations is tried, together with turbidity, colour and organics elimination, together with the technical points of superior coagulation. the results of temperature and ionic content material are defined in addition to the elimination of particular elements akin to arsenic and phosphorus. Chemical phosphorus elimination is handled intimately, fast blending for effective coagulant usage, and flocculation are handled in particular chapters. Water remedy plant waste sludge disposal is handled in enormous aspect, in an Appendix dedicated to this topic. Invaluble for water scientists, engineers and scholars of this box, Coagulation and Flocculation in Water and Wastewater therapy is a handy reference instruction manual within the type of various examples and appended details.

Sample text

In general, the chemical was effective when raw water turbidities were less than 30 NTU. Chemical sludge volumes, backwash water volumes, and finished water residual aluminum were significantly less with aluminum chlorohydrate, compared with alum. 16 NTU with aluminum chlorohydrate. No pH adjustment chemicals were added for coagulation during the tests. 2. Ruehl (1999) reported on the advantages of aluminum chlorohydrate compared with ferric sulfate when treating wide turbidity swings in river water.

They have molecular weights generally in the range 104 to 107 and are soluble in water due to hydration of functional groups. Coagulants 51 The following presents several types of polyelectrolytes currently in use. It is not intended as a comprehensive list but merely to provide a general picture of polyelectrolyte properties. The mechanisms of destabilization by polyelectrolytes are reserved for Chapter 5. 2 Activated Silica Activated silica is probably the first polyelectrolyte to be used widely in water clarification.

These polymeric species are negatively charged kinetic intermediates in the transition to a silica precipitate. The reaction is stopped prior to precipitate formation by dilution to a concentration less than 2 × 10−3 M (compare this to the intermediate species formed during hydrolysis reactions of metal coagulants, discussed previously).
