Ion ScaleBuster Water Conditioning - Industrial Customer Aluminum Manufacturer - Case Study
OVERVIEW For more than 70 years, Aluminum Feron has worked in the processing of flexible sheet-shaped materials, such as aluminum foils, aluminum, stainless steel and copper strips, papers, plastic foils and mats by adding lacquers, coats and printing. WATER SYSTEM CHALLENGES Water is used for various production processes which require cooling. The city water supplied to the factory is very ...
Probability of Aluminium Toxicity from Bhandup Complex Water Treatment Plant, Mumbai
Abstract Bhandup Complex water treatment plant located in Mumbai, India, supplies water to most of Mumbai. The plant receives raw water from Vehar Lake. Alum has been used as a coagulant in the treatment process for the past 27 years. The backwashed water from the plant is released into Vehar Lake, which carries a significant amount of suspended matter. Therefore, a layer of sludge was deposited ...
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 ...
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 ...
Optimizing the coagulation process in a drinking water treatment plant – comparison between traditional and statistical experimental design jar tests
In this study of coagulation operation, a comparison was made between the optimum jar test values for pH, coagulant and coagulant aid obtained from traditional methods (an adjusted one-factor-at-a-time (OFAT) method) and with central composite design (the standard design of response surface methodology (RSM)). Alum (coagulant) and polymer (coagulant aid) were used to treat a water source with ...
Key issues to consider when using alum sludge as substrate in constructed wetland
Globally, alum sludge is an easily, locally and largely available by-product from water treatment plants where aluminium sulphate is used as the coagulant for raw water purification. Owing to the high content of Al ions (29.7 ± 13.3% dry weight) in alum sludge and the strong affinity of Al ions to adsorb various pollutants especially phosphorus (P), alum sludge (in the form of ...
