The UCR data show that alum doses of up to 10 mg Al/L (or ~125 mg alum/L) have virtually no persistent effect on the pH of the water. The study was initialized by testing the efficiency of the coagulants in removal of turbidity. See the answer. Many samples of water collected from a different number of sources in The specifications of Jar test apparatus used for coagulation are as follows: Made: Cintex flocculator; model: CIC-30; size: 10″ × 24″ × 32″; display: digital 12 mm red LED display for RPM; speed: common, variable from 5 to 160 with accuracy of ±1 RPM; capacity: suitable for 1,000 ml × 4 No’s; illumination: fluorescent tubes; dimension: D 250 mm × H 560 mm × W 790 mm; power supply: 230 v ±10 % Ac. 2007). The removal of chloride was perceived to be noble at pH 7 with mixing speed of 80–20 (78.57 %) by sago on the other hand alum and chitin both are good in reduction of chlorides by 48 % at pH 6 in both mixing speed at all doses, Fig. Moreover, the effect of pH on the coagulation efficiency of chitin is insignificant.

The relationship between the optimum dosage, pH and turbidity reduction value shows that the optimum dosage of chitin with respect to reduction in turbidity is smaller in acidic solutions. Alkalinity was determined by titrimetric method using standard 0.02 N H2SO4. As evidenced with Fig. The removal of total solids in the present study was up to a maximum of 70 % which correlates with the studies performed by Hasçakir (2003). This may be as a result of resuspension of solids at this concentration. The optimum pH was 7 and was similar to the obtained results by Divakaran (Divakaran and Pillai 2002). In optimum conditions, the white flocs were large and rigid, and settled well in less than 20 min. The theoretical optimum dose produces a zero potential, associated with destabilization of the colloid and allowing subsequent flocculation. The rapid Tapioca is mainly processed into starch and sago. In India it was introduced in later part of nineteenth century. The results were in correlation with the studies done by Jadhav and Mahajan 2013. <>/ProcSet[/PDF/Text/ImageB/ImageC/ImageI] >>/MediaBox[ 0 0 595.44 841.68] /Contents 4 0 R/Group<>/Tabs/S/StructParents 0>> It is biocompatible, biodegradable and bio-absorbable, with antibacterial and wound-healing abilities and low immunogenicity; therefore, there have been many reports on its biomedical applications (Muzzarelli 1977).

Furthermore, the high concentrations (>30.0 g L−1) of the coagulant may confer positive charges on the particle surface (a positive-zeta potential), thus redispersing the particles (Amuda et al. 2009). endobj The coagulation efficiency of alum remained almost constant within the dosage range of 1–4 g L−1 at pH range of 6–8. The optimized dosages of coagulants were further examined at various pH conditions to test their efficiency and suitability at a wide range of pH. alum dosages from 0 and 200 mg/L. Take 1000 ml of given sample in 6 beakers. Solids were determined gravimetrically. This problem has been solved! Reagents required: Alum solution (1 ml containing 10 mg of alum) Procedure : 1. We varied the alum dose added to the influent stream from 0 mg/L to 45 mg/L in increments of 5 mg/L for an influent turbidity of 50, 75, 100, and 150 NTU. Analysis and optimization of coagulation and flocculation process, https://doi.org/10.1007/s13201-014-0262-y. 3. Dry tapioca root consists of 80–90 % carbohydrate out of which the most important is starch. The obtained results are in accordance with those obtained by Volk et al. With sago color reduction was in the peak with 99.93 % in both the mixing speeds, Fig. Saritha, V., Srinivas, N. & Srikanth Vuppala, N.V. Moreover, the effect of pH on the coagulation efficiency of chitosan is insignificant. Chitin is a remarkable chelating agent and heavy metal trap. The efficiency of suspended solid (colloid) separation from water has been achieved by the application of chemical coagulants such as alum, ferric chloride, and polyelectrolyte. Flocculation permits, by the addition of synthetic or natural polymers in slant of slow mixture, to promote the aggregation and bind together the micro-flocs of destabilized particles into larger flocks that can be removed subsequently by sedimentation and/or filtration. Further efforts should be made to improve flocculation efficiency of starch as flocculant to take place of complexes of polyacrylamide and Al2 (SO4)2.

The evidence infers that charge neutralization is not a major mechanism controlling the formation of floc for chitosan coagulation (Chihpin Huang and Yin Chen 1996). 1999). Usually the dose of Alum varies between 5mg/lit for relatively clear water to about 85 mg/lit for very turbid waters. Hence, it is concluded that chitin and sago have properties that are of interest in water treatment. 1). Chloride was estimated by argentometric method by titrating against 0.0141 N AgNO3. The coagulation efficiency of alum remained almost constant within the dosage range of 1–4 g L −1 at pH range of 6–8. In particular, the increasing costs of conventional adsorbents undoubtedly make polysaccharide-based materials one of the most attractive biosorbents for wastewater treatment. Care was taken while collecting the samples so that a representative sample is obtained. J Mol Biol 120:167–181, Muzzarelli RAA (1977) Chitin. 2009. In general, the natural polymers have efficiency in removal of turbidity of water, comparable or superior to that achieved by metal coagulants, spending a lower dosage. Determine The Amount Of Natural Alkalinity (mg/L As CaCO3) Consumed. Chitin is a long-chain polymer of N-acetyl glucosamine, a derivative of glucose, and is insoluble in water due to its intermolecular hydrogen bonds (Minke and Blackwell 1978). Chitin has succeeded to decrease alkalinity at both pH 6 and pH 7 in all the doses, Fig. 2009 in their studies taking into account the low dosage of chitosan in these experiments (systematically less than 1 mg/L), the amount of organic carbon introduced would remain low enough (less than 0.8 mg/L) to make its contribution negligible on the coagulation–flocculation performance. Alkalinity removal efficiencies of the three coagulants. The conductivity was determined using a conductivity cell which was calibrated with standard 0.1 N KCl solution of conductivity 14.12 mmhos at 30 °C. $}1��]"%�4NGN�^ÿ?�H��7*�HK �J��z��K�S�Y�8KJH����c"$;`�oG�2г�2iY�]��.Y�H�����U�J3��΂R]$�"i���柰������mB*tB҄N+W d�Ps��8�7��9�y�s�����'����@�;�b�Uy�[�&���?�� stream Chitin fibers absorb calcium ions very selectively, forming a chelate. The origin of chitin affects its crystallinity, purity, polymer chain arrangement, and dictates its properties (Rinaudo 2006). Like cellulose, chitin is a fiber, and in addition, it presents exceptional chemical and biological qualities that can be used in many industrial and medical applications. Google Scholar, Babu R, Chaudhuri M (2005) Home water treatment by direct filtration with natural coagulant. 1. This may be explained by the variation in the configuration of chitosan. Based on what we found in the experiments, with the same lime dosage the removal efficiency of humic substances and turbidity in natural The factors that influence coagulation–flocculation are, among others, temperature, pH, effluent quality, dosage and coagulant type (Nnaji 2012; Jin 2005; Ma et al.

Turbidity removal efficiencies of the three coagulants. focus of research of many investigators through the last decade owing to the problems caused by the chemical coagulants. But in practice, complexes of polyacrylamide and Al2 (SO4)2 is mainly used in water flocculation because of its good flocculation performance and low dosage. Results indicated that turbidity removal efficiency was varied by pH, alum dose and initial turbidity of water. Various methods are used to make water safe and attractive to the consumer. of Alum solution contains one milligram of Alum. 3, turbidity removal is maximum at an optimized dose of alum 0.25 g/l and when the dose is increased turbidity tends to reappear due to charge reversal.

Recent and continuing interest in these macromolecules is evident from the number of papers that appear each year in the literature on this topic (Blackburn 2004; Guibal 2004). 1998). In recent years, people had paid high attention to develop and apply it in treating water. Essentially, insufficient dosage or overdosing would result in the poor performance in flocculation. A high dose, in addition to adding costs, can cause the sediment to remain in the filtrate, a dangerous condition according to the standards, while a sub-adequate dose of coagulants can result in the re-ducing the required quality and acceptable performance of the coagulation process. This phenomenon can be attributed to the increase in number of protonated amine groups on chitin at lower pH. The coagulants nominated in this study are a plant-based coagulant, sago and the other derived from non-plant source chitin (widely produced from exoskeleton of crustaceans).

This process highlights a water treatment mechanism that stimulates the aggregation of suspended particles to settleable flocs by the destabilization of the charged colloids thus, neutralizing the forces that keep them apart. Indian sago starch is extracted from Manihot esculenta belonging to family Euphorblaceace. - 104.131.72.149. The following coagulants were used: ferric chloride, ferrous sulphate, aluminium sulphate, and combination of them. Coagulation is an essential part of drinking water treatment process. Normally the optimum coagulant dose obtained by jar test, but this test is time-consuming, costly, and not effective for real time change in water quality. Each 1.0 mL of this stock solution will equal 10 mg\L (ppm) when added to 1,000 mL of water to be tested. 2005). Pipette 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 mL of the alum solution into the test samples. Turbidity removal efficiency was slightly decreased by increasing alum concentration from 40 to 50 mg L−1, e.g., turbidity removal decreased from 97.1 to 95.7 % at pH 6 (initial turbidity of 100 NTU). Similar results were obtained when chitosan is used as a coagulant by Jill et al. It is imperative for relevant stakeholders to fully comprehend the technicalities involved when considering the coagulants for rural domestic water treatment. Part of Springer Nature. Generally, aluminum and iron salts are rapidly hydrolyzed in water to give a range of products including cationic species which can be absorbed by negatively charged particles and neutralize their charge. Results should be useful in defining problems encountered in water treatment plants where algae are troublesome. Besides, the solubility of chitin in aqueous solution is influenced by pH value. endobj The observations from the study revealed the optimum pH conditions to be 6, 7 and 8. To determine the optimal alum dose needed for an influent water turbidity of 100 NTU, we set up a special program in Process Controller. Color removal efficiencies of the three coagulants. You cannot say that simply without knowing the characteristics of the water under consideration. Algal Removal by Alum Coagu­ lation. The suspended particles vary considerably in source, composition charge, particle size, shape, and density. 2005). Water samples from Station 9 (Road Runner Beach) and … At an influent turbidity of 100 NTU, effluent turbidity was strongly correlated with coagulant dose at coagulant doses of 1 to 7.5 mg / L alum.

Find the pH of the sample and adjust it to 6 to 8.5. The RSM method was demonstrated to be an appropriate approach for the optimization and was validated … Coagulation–flocculation–sedimentation (CFS) with starch in their studies has shown that treatment performances are poor in general except oil and grease removals for domestic wastewater. Therefore, in this study starch is selected for the treatment of surface water. There are more than 1,000 tapioca processing units in India producing starch and sago in cottage and small scale sectors (Manickavasagan and Thangavel 2006). 1999, in their experiments where they stated that the destabilization of particles was enhanced by the increase in charged groups followed by charge neutralization, resulting in a decrease in optimum dosage. 2013). In other words, results showed that alum … Alkalinity was also removed adequately at the higher mixing speed at pH 6 (80 %), by sago at lower concentrations, whereas decrease in alkalinity is 80 % with alum at only 0.20 doses at pH 7 at mixing speed 80 and 20 and at pH 8 with both mixing speed. Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu are the major producers of sago starch (Sabuindia 2013; Renu and Garima 2013). Optimum coagulant dosage for algal reduction was found to be similar to that for turbidity removal. In the present study "Jar Test" was used. DETERMINATION OF THE OPTIMUM COAGULANT DOSE (ALUMINIUM SULPHATE) IN THE WATER TREATMENT PLANT OF ATHENS IN GALATSI FACILITIES DURING THE SUMMER PERIOD Furthermore, the cationic corn starch generated better results than those obtained with the cationic synthetic polymer. The needed dose varies with the pH of the water and the size of the particles. An optimum dosage of alum was determined to be 15 mg of Al 2 (SO 4) 3 per litre of water. Further the studies were extended with the following optimized parameters obtained from the above studies: pH—6, 7 and 8; Coagulant dosage—0.05, 0.1, 0.15 and 0.2 g/500 ml; Mixing speed—rapid mixing at 100 mixing speed for 10 min and slow mixing at 30 mixing speed for 20 min; rapid mixing at 80 for 2 min and slow mixing at 20 for 20 min.

J Water Health 3:27–30, Bina B, Mehdinejad MH, Nikaeen M, Movahedian Attar H (2009) Effectiveness of chitosan as natural coagulant aid in treating turbid waters. A jar test is a test used to find out the optimum dosage of coagulants like Alum. The authors attribute the good results obtained with the cationic tapioca starch for its high molecular weight, and mechanisms of action have been the predominant adsorption and bridging. Natural organic polymers named biopolymers are naturally produced or extracted from animals, plant tissues or microorganisms. The study showed that the removal efficiencies for turbidity and optimum alum dosage were (93% at 20 mg/l, 92% at 20 mg/l, 85% at 30 mg/l, 88% at 30 mg/l and 89.3% at 30 mg/l) respectively. Coagulation is performed in two stages: first the coagulant is rapidly mixed and then flocculation is enhanced by slow mixing. The results showed that chitosan could be used as natural coagulant aid for drinking water treatment. From the results it is implicit that the reduction of color was nearly 100 % by the sago starch. … Investigating the influence of mixing speed on trends of turbidity removal by alum chitin and sago, the results have shown that the ability of chitin and sago can be used in wide range of pH and at higher mixing speed conditions. Determination of the optimum dose of such a coagulant is of particular significance. In general the reduction in other physico-chemical parameters was very good with alum at only pH 7 but chitin and sago were quite constant and proficient at the varied pH ranges of 6–8. Optimum pH for the coagulation operation obtained through traditional methods and RSM was 7.6. <>>> Iran J Environ Health Sci Eng 6(4):247–252, Blackburn RS (2004) Natural polysaccharides and their interactions with dye molecules: applications in effluent treatment.

XXVII Inter-American Congress of Sanitary and Environmental Engineering. Starch flocculants have a series of virtues such as non-toxicity, abundance in resources, low price and biodegradability. C. COD REMOVAL W.R.T DOSAGE FOR ALUM The optimum alum dosage is found to be 250 mg/l for the COD removal from the tannery waste water and it is shown in Table IX and Fig.7. The optimum conditions observed for sago were 6 and 7 whereas chitin was stable at all pH ranges, lower coagulant doses, i.e., 0.1–0.3 g/L and mixing speed—rapid mixing at 100 rpm for 10 min and slow mixing 20 rpm for 20 min. It can be seen that the removal of hardness decreased with increasing hardness values (Bina et al. Handbook of environmental engineering, vol 3. An Optimum Dose Of 12.5 Mg/L Of Alum Was Determined. Turbidity removal is observed at lower pH, the resulting floc diameter is smaller, accompanied by a slower settling velocity. Optimization of process parameters is vital for the effectiveness of coagulation process.
