It must be present in excess of that destroyed by the acid released by the coagulant for effective and complete coagulation … If the alkalinity is lower or higher, then the floc does not form properly. A concern from using disinfectants is that it will interact … The effect of increasing particle surface area on coagulation is first modeled for a system containing particulate silica, but of varying size and concentration. The three alkalinities defined in 2 rely on the concept of proton balance. In the treatments with PAC and PE, linear squares model had the highest accuracy for all the responses. The continuous aggregation and increase in floc was mainly attributed to the particle coalescence with the Al clusters. The quality of polymer flood produced water (PFPW) is different from produced water (PW) without polymer, and various techniques are being studied for the effective treatment of PFPW. The results of these tend to suggest that the polymeric aluminium(III) hydroxide species have a size between 10–20 Å; these have an average residual positive charge of 0.54, and constitute about 80% of the total aluminium in the hydrolysed solution. The first black liquor sludge based CA (BLS-CA 1) is produced by employing the first stage heating at 575 oC for 180 minutes while the second black liquor sludge based CA (BLS-CA 2) is produced by employing the first stage heating at 450 oC for 60 minutes. The results showed no statistical differences between the performance of the two coagulants based on chemical oxygen demand, colour, turbidity and total solids removal. Based on these results, a treatment trial with actual PFPW, was conducted with a pilot plant. The optimized parameters of the coagulant PAC were the dose, contact time, temperature, and agitation speed. The addition of flocculant, which is currently used in industry to improve settling rate, is detrimental to solid bed compaction. Although PAHS effectively reduced turbidity in the absence of OM or in the presence of SAL, the presence of the other organic substances greatly increased the coagulant demand in warm water. Tech. Herein, the authors emphasize the importance of pH value in coagulation during the production of drinking water. Adsorption tests showed that papaya leaf could be used as a potential adsorbent for the removal of Reactive Red 3BS from aqueous solution. The partially hydrolysed aluminium(III) solutions were characterized by ultrafiltration method, ferron assay, 27Al n.m.r. It is possible to produce stable preparations of partially neutralized aluminum chloride solutions in which cationic aluminum polyelectrolytes predominate, but attempts to produce similar stable preparations containing cationic iron(III) polyelectrolytes were unsuccessful. However, alum was a poor coagulant in the presence of absence of OM. SMZ and OTC removals under low alkalinity (25 mg/L) were better than those under high alkalinity (100 mg/L) in c(PAC)<0.3×10-3 mol/L, while the removals under high alkalinity were better than those under low alkalinity in c(PAC)>0.3×10-3 mol/L. The coagulation efficiency of plant-mineral composite (PMC) coagulant followed by UV-based advanced oxidation processes (UV-AOPs; UV/H2O2 and UV/Cl2) was evaluated for removal of algae, turbidity, dissolved organic matters, and taste and odor compounds in lab-scale and pilot-scale tests. The aluminum species in the high-basicity PACls, in particular that produced by AlCl3-titration, was resistant to hydrolysis, but sulfate ions in raw water accelerated the rate of hydrolysis and thereby facilitated floc formation. The maximum sorption capacities of papaya leaf in the case of sorption from pretreated solution and pure solution were 50.23 mg g⁻¹ and 21 mg g⁻¹, respectively. The presence of NB did not affect the performance of coagulation-sedimentation directly.

The role of electrostatic and hydration factors in the mechanism of aggregation of ABC hydrolysis products is discussed.
