Q�������;� Physical separation techniques for treating colloidal wastewater, such as sedimentation, are not adequate since colloidal systems contain particles from 0.1 μm to 1 nm. WATER TREATMENT 6.1 Introduction Water can be contaminated by the following agents: Pathogens – disease-causing organisms that include bacteria, amoebas and viruses, as … Coagulation is an essential mechanism that occurs in most conventional water and wastewater treatment plants. 4 Introduction Most water treatment practices including coagulation, flocculation and clarification, date back hundreds and in some cases thousands of years. 14 0 obj Water treatment coagulants are comprised of positively charged molecules that, when added to the water and mixed, accomplish this charge neutralisation. endobj Coagulants for Optimal Wastewater Treatment from Beckart Environmental Coagulants are a key component for any wastewater treatment program that handles suspend solids, as they consolidate those particles for easy and thorough removal. a����#b �u�n�1p�}��2�0 i �h endstream endobj 677 0 obj<> endobj 679 0 obj<>/Font<>/XObject<>/ProcSet[/PDF/Text/ImageB/ImageC]/ExtGState<>>>>> endobj 680 0 obj<>stream �_�ǝ�'Ѷ�xO��/��p��+oE�����i��d���qD��R H�}z�/݈���?y��5�+��N��Y��?�h˴�}Jz��.9���}��̺�Umd��T�@��X)��5+ �zÊ^a��[����-djͪ�LmXY��[V=djKJ���� <>/Border[0 0 0]/P 3 0 R>> endobj \:����NÁ>���=;����]E�����$ї������M�]i���+��%��3��v�~Ϻ"�^��D�����<>���ny}�G[�g����� endstream 1.Aluminium coagulants Aluminium sulphate is the most widely used aluminium coagulant.
