Since decisions on the coagulation process are often carried out based on the experience of the human operator, several studies have been conducted on resources of computational intelligence at this stage of water treatment process, with good results in predicting coagulant dosage.
This line of specialty coagulants is complementary to the Corp.
Unlike the two coagulants alum and ferric chloride, poly aluminum chloride is not sensitive to water temperature changes and remaining turbidity fluctuations are not seen.
Correct application of coagulation and flocculation processes and selection of the coagulants depend upon understanding the interaction between these factors.
The effect of coagulant dosage, contact time and temperature on colour removal was studied by coagulation of T.
As a coagulants alum (KAl(SO4)2 * 12 H2O) and natural coagulant from common bean seeds were considered.
Since the paper sludge ashes alone could not become a coagulant, the addition of other inorganic materials was necessary.
The screening of coagulation activity using small volume water sample has the advantage of making it possible to test large number of samples simultaneously and within a short period, it helps to save materials and energy and it also facilitates to establish appropriate dosages for newly identified coagulants before testing them using large volume of water samples (Ghebremichael, 2006).
The percentage turbidity removal for both coagulants are also showed in Fig.
While the previous 504 series pumps for the coagulant process were reaching the end of their natural life, they had performed well so it was decided to continue with this type of pump," explains Black & Veatch's project M&E co-ordinator at the Walton site.
All the alternative coagulants performed better than current treatment (ie, alum, sodium aluminate, and polymer addition) in the cold water tests, while PACl performed best in all scenarios, consistently producing the lowest settled water turbidities and removing the greatest percentage of turbidity.
