Removal of Suspended Solids and Turbidity from Wastewater Using Natural & Primary Coagulant
Keywords:Waste water, removal, suspended solids, turbidity, natural coagulant
AbstractVarious techniques have been developed to treat the water before discharging into environment. One of such techniques is coagulation. In the current research a coagulant aid (Eucalyptus bark) has been identified as an effective addition which results in 11-15% decrease in overall consumption of primary coagulant (Aluminum sulfate). The objective of study is to reduce total suspended solids (TSS) and turbidity from the sewage water using a primary coagulant along with a natural coagulant aid. Maximum total suspended solids (TSS) removal is achieved usingÂ aluminum sulfate and eucalyptus bark as natural coagulant aid at particle size of 60 mesh, pH of 8 at 1.0 g/L feed rate and temperature of 30 Â°C
