  • Optidose polymer

    Maintaining a minimum concentration of an effective dispersant polymer is crucial in an alkaline cooling water treatment program. The problem is knowing exactly how much polymer is available in the cooling water to combat fouling and corrosion of heat transfer equipment. Many years of research and effort have gone into the development of a method for tracing the concentration of polymers. Rohm ...


  • Impact of Polymer Type and Dose on the Fate and Survival of Fecal Coliform during Centrifuge Dewatering

    Recent studies reported significant increases in indicator bacteria counts in anaerobically digested sludge samples during and shortly after centrifugal dewatering. The reasons behind the observed increases are not yet well-understood. This study investigated the effect of centrifuge shear and polymer addition on the fecal coliform counts measured after centrifugation. Centrifuge shear and ...

  • Influence of nanoparticles on the polymer-conditioned dewatering of wastewater sludges

    The effect of using small-scale, high surface area, nanoparticles to supplement polymer-conditioned wastewater sludge dewatering was investigated. Aerobically digested sludge and waste activated sludge sourced from the Hunter Valley, NSW, Australia, were tested with titanium dioxide nanoparticles. The sludge samples were dosed with the nanoparticles in an attempt to adsorb a component of the ...

  • Microsieving in primary treatment: effect of chemical dosing

    Primary and chemically enhanced primary wastewater treatment with microsieving (disc or drum filtration) was studied at the large pilot scale at seven municipal wastewater treatment plants in Europe. Without chemical dosing, the reduction of suspended solids (SS) was (on average) 50% (20–65%). By introducing chemically enhanced primary treatment and dosing with cationic polymer only, SS ...

  • Biological denitrification of drinking water using biodegradable polymer

    The application of Biodegradable Polymer (BDPs), which can serve as biofilm carrier and simultaneously as water insoluble carbon source for heterotrophic denitrification. The external dosing of soluble organic substrate can be therefore avoided and process can be simplified as normal bio-filter. In this paper, the lab-scale experiment was carried out by using the cheap material of PBS, a new kind ...

  • Implications and remediations of DMAEA-Q type polymer hydrolysis in wastewater treatment plants

    The present paper outlines the impact of hydrolysis occurring in DMAEA-Q type polymers in the dewatering facilities of municipal wastewater treatment plants. Laboratory studies of polymer hydrolysis kinetics were combined with full-scale dewatering experiments to investigate the influence of polymer charge loss on polymer consumption and cake dry matter yields. The results indicate that prolonged ...

  • Adsorption of lead (II) ions onto novel cassava starch 5-choloromethyl-8-hydroxyquinoline polymer from an aqueous medium

    Adsorption of lead (II) ions onto cassava starch 5-choloromethyl-8-hydroxyquinoline polymer (CSCMQ) was investigated with the variation in the parameters of pH, contact time, lead (II) ions concentration, temperature and the adsorbent dose. The Langmuir and Freundlich models have been applied. CSCMQ was characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy. ...

  • Removal of microcystin-LR from water by polymers based on N-vinylformamide structure

    The work describes the results of experiments aimed at developing a new method using synthetic polymers to remove microcystins from water. Three hydrophilic polymers were synthesized based on a N-vinylformamide (NVF) structure cross-linked with divinylbenzene (DVB): p(NVF-co-DVB), p(VAm-co-DVB), and, after reaction with glutaraldehyde (GA), p(VAm-co-DVB)GA. The physicochemical ...

  • BM Respirometry Study Toxicity & Biodegradability of a Refinery polymer stream, when treated in the activated sludge process of the plant - Case Study

    This “batch system” respirometer consists of: a single thermostatically controlled vessel, divided into two interconnected compartments with closed recirculation loop between the two. A constant air flow is supplied via a ceramic diffuser in the conditioning compartment, and a combined oxygen/temperature sensor in the reaction compartment controls the DO and temperature. Both ...

  • Influence of water treatment residuals on dewaterability of wastewater biosolids

    Co-dewatering of water treatment residuals (WTR) and wastewater biosolids can potentially benefit municipalities by reducing processing equipment and costs. This study investigated dewaterability (using capillary suction time, CST) of combined alum residuals (Al-WTR) and anaerobically digested biosolids at various blending ratios (BR), defined as the mass ratio of WTR to biosolids on a dry ...

  • Chemical pretreatment of combined sewer overflows for improved UV disinfection

    The aim of this research was to better understand chemical pre-treatment of combined sewer overflows (CSOs) for subsequent ultraviolet (UV) disinfection. Approximately 200 jar tests were completed. Alum (Al2(S04)3·12H2O) resulted in a higher UV light transmission (UVT), and equivalent total suspended solids (TSS) removal, than ferric chloride (FeCl3). An ...

  • Accuracy and Cost Savings from Automatic Optimization of Dewatering

    Improvements in sensor and automation technology in recent years have made it possible to design a system to control the key variable parameters in and around the dewatering process. By continuously analyzing feed conditions and output from the process, an automated optimization system can make necessary proactive adjustments to the internal settings of the dewatering equipment, the polymer ...

  • Effect of coagulant and flocculant addition scheme on the treatment of dairy farm wastewater

    Our group was approached by a manufacturer of treatment trains to recycle wastewater from dairy farm manure. Company X treatment trains consist of microscreening, sedimentation and filtration units attached to a reverse osmosis (RO) membrane. To enhance screening, a coagulant and a flocculant are added to the stream feeding the microscreen. However, their customers experience foaming on the ...

  • Effectiveness of coagulants and coagulant aids for the removal of filter-clogging Synedra

    ABSTRACTThe occurrence of Synedra spp. in the source water of the CheongJu water treatment plant (South Korea) decreased filter run times of rapid sand filters to below 5 hours. During the filter-clogging episode, full-scale Synedra removal by coagulation  with polyaluminium hydrogen chloride silicate (PAHCS), flocculation and sedimentation ranged from 20 to 70%. To reduce filter clogging, ...

  • Tomato Comparison

    The samples were tested side by side for comparison in dosage and relative performance. The jar on the left was dosed with 700 ppm of Floccin 1105 and the jar on the right was dosage first with 1,200 ppm of alum and then 500 ppm of a cationic polyacrylamide polymer. Based on retail pricing, the Floccin 1105 outperforms the traditional chemistry with less residual suspended ...

  • Comparison of centrifuge and belt press for compressible digested sludge after thermal hydrolysis

    ABSTRACT Historically it has been shown on many projects that centrifuges can outperform belt presses in dewatering digested sludge. However results from a number of projects where sludge has been treated before digestion with Cambi thermal hydrolysis process (THP) have shown good results for belt press dewatering – generally greater than 30% DS. The authors propose that the main mechanism in ...
