  • Fluoride sorption using morringa indica –based activated carbon

    Fluoride is an important micro nutrient for the production and maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. Although a certain amount of fluoride gives good protection against dental decay, excess intake of fluoride ions cause dental fluorosis. When the concentration of fluoride is more than 4 mg/L it causes softening of bones, ossification of tendons and ligaments and neurological damage in severe ...

  • Methods of Purification by Water Innovations, Inc.

    Carbon Filtration is used for several reasons. Its primary purpose is the reduction of chlorine to less than 0.1 ppm. Chorine can damage softener resins, reverse osmosis membranes, and mixed bed deionization resins. Activated carbon will also help control tastes and odors, provide organic and hazardous organic chemical reduction, and some particulate reduction. ...

  • Modelling particle growth of calcium carbonate in a pilot-scale pellet fluidized bed reactor

    Pellet fluidized bed reactors have been widely used to soften water. Reports from laboratory-scale research on the particle growth kinetics of calcium carbonate in pellet reactors have been put forward. However, the reports have not been comprehensive as they only consider the influence of supersaturation on the calcium carbonate growth process. The influence of three factors, namely, the ...

  • Improving the biological stability of drinking water by ion exchange

    To guarantee a good water quality at the consumer’s tap, natural organic matter (NOM) should be (partly) removed during drinking water treatment. The objective of this research is to measure the effect of NOM removal by ion exchange on the biological stability of drinking water. Experiments were performed in two lanes of the pilot plant of Weesperkarspel in the Netherlands. The lanes consisted of ...
