The effect of pulsed voltage application on energy consumption during electrocoagulation was investigated. Three voltage profiles having the same arithmetic average with respect to time were applied to the electrodes. The specific energy consumption for these profiles were evaluated and analyzed together with oil removal efficiencies. The effects of applied voltages, electrode materials, electrode configurations, and pH on oil removal efficiency were determined. Electrocoagulation experiments were performed by using synthetic and real wastewater samples. The pulsed voltages saved energy during the electrocoagulation process. In cont . . .inuous operation, energy saving was as high as 48%. Aluminum electrodes used for the treatment of emulsified oils resulted in higher oil removal efficiencies in comparison with stainless steel and iron electrodes. When the electrodes gap was less than 1 cm, higher oil removal efficiencies were obtained. The highest oil removal efficiencies were 95% and 35% for the batch and continuous operating modes, respectively. © IWA Publishing 2015 Daha fazlası Daha az

In this study, the optimum operating conditions for the treatment of emulsified oils by electrocoagulation were determined depending on droplet stability analysis. Zeta potential measurements were used as the indication of oil droplet charges. In addition, the effects of pH and ionic conductivity on the droplet sizes and surface charges were investigated. The studied emulsified oil droplet sizes were more sensitive to changes in pH rather than salt concentration. The droplets became larger and unstable in alkaline conditions. As the initial pH of wastewaters increased, the oil removal efficiency increased during the electrocoagulati . . .on experiments as well. The use of iron or aluminum electrodes resulted in higher removal efficiencies in comparison to stainless steel electrodes. In addition, the energy consumption for aluminum electrodes was much lower than iron electrodes. To obtain 98% oil removal efficiency, distance between the electrodes was recommended to be less than or equal to 1 cm. © 2016, Water Environment Federation. All rights reserved Daha fazlası Daha az

Turbidity and chemical oxygen demand (COD) removal efficiencies were analyzed depending on electrode layouts by performing electrocoagulation experiments using horizontal and vertical electrochemical cells. Multiple aluminum plate electrodes were placed into different sections of the electrochemical cells. Removal efficiencies at the horizontal electrochemical cell were always higher than the one’s obtained from the vertical electrochemical cell. But the use of vertical electrochemical cell consumed less energy during the electrocoagulation tests. The highest COD removal efficiencies were 97% and 88% in the horizontal and vertical e . . .lectrochemical cells, respectively. However, the energy consumption for COD removal in the horizontal electrochemical cell was 47% higher than the energy consumed in the vertical electrochemical cell. © 2017 Taylor & Francis Daha fazlası Daha az

The present study aims to examine the electro-Fenton/electro-coagulation (EF/EC) process for the treatment of wastewater generated from Kraft pulp and paper mills. As a result of the experimental studies, the optimum operating parameters of the EF/EC process have been identified as follows: current = 1.0 A, initial H2O2 concentration = 1000 mg/l and initial pH 2.5. It has been established that, under these conditions, the COD could be removed at 91.7%. It has been understood that the sludge produced from the EF/EC reactor possesses fairly good sedimentation characteristics and is significantly affected by the operating parameters. I . . .t has been established that the best sedimentation characteristics can be achieved when the current is ? 1.0 A, the initial pH value is between 2.3 and 3.2, and the initial H2O2 concentration is between 400 and 1800 mg/l Daha fazlası Daha az

In this investigation, arsenic removal from drinking water using electrocoagulation (EC) in a batch mode was studied by response surface methodology (RSM). The RSM was applied to optimize the operating variables viz. current density (CD, A/m2), operating time (tEC, min) and arsenic concentration (Co, µg/L) on arsenic removal in the EC process using iron electrodes. The combined effects of these variables were analyzed by the RSM using quadratic model for predicting the highest removal efficiency of arsenic from drinking water. The proposed model fitted very well with the experimental data. R2 adjusted correlation coefficients (AdjR2 . . .: 0.93) for arsenic removal efficiency showed a high significance of the model. The model predicted for a maximum removal of arsenic at the optimum operating conditions (112.3 µg/L, 5.64 A/m2 and 5 min) after the EC process was 93.86% which corresponded to effluent arsenic concentration of 6.9 µg/L. The minimum operating cost (OC) of the EC process was 0.0664 €/m3. This study clearly showed that the RSM was one of the suitable methods for the EC process to optimize the best operating conditions for target value of effluent arsenic concentration (<10 µg/L) while keeping the OC (energy and electrode consumptions) to minimal. © 2013 © 2013 Balaban Desalination Publications Daha fazlası Daha az
