Introduction to Wastewater Treatment Processes considers various types of wastewater problems and the selection of proper mode of treatment, as well as the design of the equipment required. This book is divided into eight chapters and begins with a summary of the theory involved in the specific process, such as chemical kinetics and material and energy balances. The next chapter deals with the physical and chemical principles of wastewater treatment processes. These topics are followed by discussions of the important design parameters involved in the process and the determination of such parameters using laboratory-scale or pilot-plant equipment. Other chapters explore the development of a systematic design procedure for the treatment plant. The final chapters look into the mathematical modeling of biological treatment processes. This book will prove useful to practicing engineers and students.
This book was written with the objective to help anyone who wants to take and pass their water treatment grade 1 or 2 test. This book is compiled from my personal notes that I took during my time studying this subject and my personal research on the topic. I have condensed my notes into a form that is easy to read and follow with the hopes to aid you in passing your test like I have. This book is not a supplement for normal textbooks but rather a short guide for quick reference on the subject of water treatment. Using these notes, in addition to immense studying of the Sacramento State Water Treatment textbooks, I passed my treatment grade 2 test with an 95%. I believe in order to succeed you must be dedicated to studying. The inconvenience now will be well worth it in the future.
Principles of Water and Wastewater Treatment Processes
The availability of a reliable supply of water is one of the most important determinants of human health, with the supply of clean drinking water being a multibillion dollar industry in the developed world and a key concern for less developed countries. Introduction to Potable Water Treatment Processes illustrates the link between raw water quality and treatment process selection and performance. Individual chapters concentrate on specific water treatment processes, detailing the chemical and engineering principles behind the process, and further illustrating process implementation by the use of process flow diagrams, photographs and case studies. The final three chapters look specifically at the removal of organic and inorganic contaminants and at the treatment and disposal of sludge. With introductory chapters covering both UK/European legislation and WHO guidance, and a general introduction to process flow diagrams, Introduction to Potable Water Treatment Processes is essential reading for anyone operating or managing a water treatment process, or carrying out research on water treatment processes.
This publication provides the scientific fundamentals for understanding chemical, physical and biological processes that are used in drinking water treatment, such as filtration, coagulation, softening, deironing, demanganization and others. Written in a compact and easily accessible form, the book is focused on the objectives, the theoretical basics and the practical implementation of the treatment processes.
