Abstract

1 - 2 July 1997

Type:Proceedings paper
Title:Tracer Studies of the Hydraulics of Tapered Flocculation
Event:Pretreatment for Separation
Dates:1997-07-01 - 1997-07-02
Additional information:A pilot plant with a flow capacity of 600m3/h was constructed as a tapered (diminishing velocity gradients) flocculation system. The flow through patterns of a series of 4 tanks and a transfer channel were evaluated hydraulically using an alkali (NaOH) tracer using PH probes. By adjusting the inlet and outlet weirs and slots, stirrers and baffles, a best design was derived allowing for compromises among the units
