What is Sewage Treatment?
Sewage treatment is the process of eliminating impurities from municipal wastewater.
Waste liquid from houses and companies is included in municipal waste water. This waste is processed in order to do the least amount of harm to the environment in which it is released.
Sewage treatment is typically divided into three stages: primary, secondary, and tertiary.
The sedimentation process is used in primary treatment to remove pollutants. The biological process is used in secondary treatment to remediate settled sewage, and the tertiary process is the final stage that enhances the effluent quality. The effluent polishing step is another name for this stage.
Use of Activated Carbon Filter in Sewage Treatment – Tertiary Stage
The process of filtering wastewater with activated carbon basically absorbs undesired pollutants. Activated carbon is first exposed to oxygen. This aids in the opening of millions of small pores by the charcoal. When it comes to absorbing toxins from wastewater, activated carbon is quite effective.
Where is Activated Carbon used?
Activated carbon is used in the filtration process to remove residual pollutants from sewage discharge. Chlorine, methane, organic molecules, and even the taste and odour of wastewater are all absorbed by carbon.
Chlorine removal using Activated Carbon (AC)
Chlorine is removed from wastewater using an activated carbon filter. Because of its huge surface area, it is very good in absorbing pollutants from wastewater. The chlorine elimination procedure fills the carbon's large pores. As the capacity of activated carbon degrades, it must be replaced. This procedure has a modest operational cost.
Organic Carbon removal using Activated Carbon (AC)
Organic molecules are also absorbed by carbon in the activated carbon filter process. The capacity of this process is determined by the physical qualities of the activated carbon surface area, the amount of hydrogen and oxygen present, the impurity concentration level, the treatment period, and, of course, the pH level of the water utilized.
Wastewater treatment procedures from Netsol Water can benefit from the use of activated carbon filters as a pre-treatment. Ion exchange resins and the reverse osmosis process are examples of these. With this combination of activated carbon and ozonation, micropollutants may be readily eliminated. Additionally, it extends the life of activated carbon filters.
Benefits of Using Activated Carbon Filter in Sewage Treatment Plants
1: The ability to absorb pollutants is as high as 90%;
2: This filtration method is simple to use;
4: Removes chlorine, organics, poor taste, and odour effectively;
5: Cost-effective — installation costs are lower;
6: Filter replacement is the only expense of operation;
7: Dependable and effective;
8: Large organic molecules are removed as much as possible;
9: It may be utilized in both homes and waste-water treatment plants;
10: The materials used are readily available.
When should be the Activated Carbon filters replaced in STP?
The absorption process of an activated carbon filter eliminates contaminants from water and wastewater. It's a low-cost procedure that's quite successful in removing undesired contaminants from wastewater.
The best aspect of the method is that it can be simply manufactured anywhere in the globe, with the exception of one flaw: the filter wears down quickly and must be replaced on a regular basis.
After 18-24 months of constant (24/7) use, carbon filters should be changed. Carbon filters have been demonstrated to survive up to four years, however this varies depending on the company's product. The carbon quality, usage, humidity, and plant kind all affect how long these filters last.
