  • Drinking water quality monitoring using trend analysis

    One of the common quality parameters for drinking water is residual aluminium. High doses of residual aluminium in drinking water or water used in the food industry have been proved to be at least a minor health risk or even to increase the risk of more serious health effects, and cause economic losses to the water treatment plant. In this study, the trend index is developed from scaled ...

  • Performance of Moringa oleifera extracts and Sudfloc as coagulant aid in raw water treatment in Mauritius

    Coagulation experiments were done using raw water samples from two treatment plants (herein referred to LMTP and LNTP) in Mauritius in jar tests using Moringa oleifera (MO) extract and Sudfloc. Both coagulant aids reduced alum consumption. Sudfloc was required in low concentration as compared to crude extracts of MO. On samples from LMTP, salt extract of MO (MOSE) was six times more efficient ...

  • Do aluminium concentrations in drinking water inhibit cultivation of Escherichia coli?

    In spite of reliance on Escherichia coli as an indicator of fecal pollution in water resources, including potable water, relatively little is known of its ecology and persistence. It is particularly important to be able to accurately detect E. coli presence and quantity in treated potable water because of potential human health effects from consumption of contaminated water. ...

  • Treatment of drinking water containing iron using Electrocoagulation

    Electrocoagulation (EC) technique was adopted for the treatment of iron containing drinking water using a reactor of 3 l capacity having 1 l liquid volume. Experimental investigation was carried out to observe the effect of different operating parameters such as pH, current density, inter-electrode distance and conductivity on the removal of iron from the iron-rich aqueous solution prepared with ...

  • gaiasafe filter products for drinking water purification - Case Study

    Problem In some water works chlorination of drinking water is used to eliminate mikrobes. Chlorinated water may have disagreable taste and smell. Some water works use aluminium salts to clean the water. This leads to low concentrations of aluminium in drinking water. Today it is known that aluminium may be toxic to men. Old piping installations inside or outside private homes often where ...

  • Separation of finely dispersed sorbents from purified water by ultra-flocculation and turbulent micro-flotation

    This paper describes studies of the process of recovery of finely dispersed sorbents from water by means of ultra-flocculation, sedimentation and turbulent micro-flotation, and the sequential combination of these steps. With reference to the most commonly used finely dispersed sorbents in the purification of water from organic contaminants, heavy metals and radio nuclides (aluminium hydroxide, ...

  • Toxicity evaluation of polymeric ferric sulphate

    Toxicity evaluation of water treated with polymeric ferric sulphate (PFS), an aluminium-free coagulant, was conducted in this research. Six-week old male F344/N rats exposed to PFS-treated water for three months did not show any obvious pathology as observed histologically or in clinical chemistry compared to rats given tap water. There was no significant difference in body weight gain in the ...

  • Water pollution · Canarina DESCAR software

    Natural waters contain micro-organism as well as solutes. There is a distinction between ‘pure’ water, meaning water that is fit to drink and pure water that is a single substance. A water pollutant is a substance that prevents the use of water for a specified purpose. The signs of polluted water are obvious. Poor drinking water tastes and smell bad. ...

  • A novel alum-sludge based Constructed Wetland system to reduce pollution effects of agricultural run-off: first results

    This paper is a research brief highlighting the development of a novel alum-sludge based Constructed Wetland (CW) system aimed at reducing the pollution effects of agricultural run-offs. Alum sludge is a by-product of drinking water treatment plants where aluminium sulphate is used as coagulant. The alum sludge cakes were used as the main support matrix in the constructed wetland system, having ...
