What is the role of electrocoagulation in Waste water treatment?
Electrocoagulation (EC)is a wastewater treatment, wash water treatment, industrially processed water, and medical treatment procedure. The ability to remove contaminants that are generally more difficult to remove by filtration or chemical treatment systems, such as emulsified oil, total petroleum hydrocarbons, refractory organics, suspended solids, and heavy metals, electrocoagulation has become a rapidly growing area of wastewater treatment and thus EC can be of use there. There are numerous brands of electrocoagulation devices available, ranging in complexity from a simple anode and cathode to much more complex devices.
How does EC Work?
Typically, the electrochemical technique oxidizes a sacrificial anode electrolytically to liberate metal ions that produce coagulants, destabilize impurities, and split emulsions. This coagulation produces flocculants, which float to the top and are removed.
When compared to alternative technologies, an electrochemical process provides significant advantages:
- It is capable of treating both process and waste water.
- It is effective against a wide spectrum of pollutants.
- The operation employs basic, safe equipment.
- There is usually no requirement for chemical treatment.
- Typically, electrocoagulation-treated fluids can be reused, reducing waste.
Advantages of Using an Advanced Electrocoagulation System from Netsol:
We employ our knowledge and experience to ensure that the system will minimize or remove the pollutants in your wastewater, whether they be suspended particles, bacteria, heavy metals, hardness, or fats and oils. We choose the most effective electrode materials and organize them in the most efficient manner to eliminate impurities.
1: Cleaning cycle to increase the life of the electrodes
Because of the nature of the EC process, the electrodes corrode with time, although with good cleaning, they can endure for some time before needing replacement.
2: Power usage has been optimized based on water quality
We do comprehensive testing to guarantee that no energy is wasted. The apparatus requires enough current to coagulate the particles without overheating the electrodes.
3: Low sludge generation
Other coagulation procedures generate significant volumes of dangerous sludge, however Netsol's Electrocoagulation technology generates lower amounts that are not normally harmful. This sludge may be readily dewatered and disposed of, or it might be utilized as an agricultural soil supplement in conjunction with organic fertilizer.
4: Low maintenance costs generally result in cost savings of 50% or more when compared to chemical coagulation procedures
Chemical coagulation necessitates the procurement of several chemicals in considerable quantities in order to adequately treat wastewater. In addition to the cost of transporting and disposing of hazardous sludge, these systems need constant monitoring and periodic maintenance.
5: Modular configuration necessitates a smaller footprint
Netsol's customized electrocoagulation systems are modular and easily retrofittable into current treatment processes; they also have a lower footprint than other systems.
6: Environmentally friendly and long-lasting
Our EC units, like other Netsol systems, are designed to treat your water supply in a sustainable manner while also protecting your local environment from dangerous pollutants.
Netsol Water aims to ensure that you reach your production and operational objectives while also considering water sustainability. Our devotion and commitment, together with our specialist electrocoagulation system solutions, may assist you in achieving those objectives. We'll work with you to best optimize an EC system that will treat your specific water or wastewater impurities while saving you money.
