  6. Solid- liquid separation in water treatment Typical layout of a water treatment plant water treatment

  7. Analysis of Forces Acting On a Settling Particle water treatment

  8. Archimedes’s Principle Examination of the nature of buoyancy shows that the buoyant force on a volume of water and a submerged object of the same volume is the same. Since it exactly supports the volume of water, it follows that the buoyant force on any submerged object is equal to the weight of the water displaced. This is the essence of Archimedes principle. water treatment

  9. Terminal Velocity of a Particle An expression for Vt from the submerged weight of the particle, W, and the fluid drag force, D. The drag force on a particle is given by D = CDlAp Vt2/2 The submerged weight of the particle can be expressed as W = ( - l)g s Since D = W, the above, after substituting Ap and p for particle diameter d   _______________ Vt= /4 ( - l) gd  3l CD water treatment

  10. Stokes’s Law Re < 1, CD = 24 /Re Substitute in the equation for vt Vt=g ( -l) d2 18  Vt=2 ( -l)gr2 9 The upflow velocity in a settling tank needs to be < Vt water treatment

  23. LAMELLA SETTLING TANKS: Shortening the settling distance Pipe bundles also used water treatment

  24. (20 – 40 m3m-2d-1 or 0.8 – 1.7 m/h) (2.5 mm/s) – limits weir loading rate to 100 – 200 m3m-1d-1 water treatment

  25. Sludge Thickening Design water treatment

  26. FLOTATIONSeparation of low density flocs If flocs have a density very close to that of water, it may be necessary to decrease their density by adding gas bubbles water treatment

  27. FLOTATIONSeparation of low density flocsMethods of forming gas bubbles • Diffusion • Vacuum • Electrolysis • Dissolved air water treatment

  28. Surface Tension and Bubbles • The surface tension of water provides the wall tension • for the formation of bubbles. To minimize the wall tension the bubble pulls into a spherical shape (LaPlace's law). • Pressure difference between the inside and outside of a bubble depends upon the surface tension and the radius of the bubble. Visualize the bubble as two hemispheres • Note the internal pressure which tends to push the hemispheres apart is counteracted by the surface tension acting around the circumference of the circle. • For a bubble with two surfaces providing tension, the pressure relationship is: Po Pi Pi Pi – Po = 4T/r T water treatment

  29. La Place's Law The larger the vessel radius, the larger the wall tension required to withstand a given internal fluid pressure. For a given vessel radius and internal pressure, a spherical vessel will have half the wall tension of a cylindrical vessel. water treatment

  30. Wall Tension water treatment

  31. Why does wall tension increase with radius? If the upward part of the fluid pressure remains the same, then the downward component of the wall tension must remain the same. If the curvature is less, then the total tension must be greater in order to get that same downward component of tension. water treatment

  32. Bubble Pressure • Net upward force on the top hemisphere of the bubble: Fupward = (Pi – Po)πr2 • The surface tension force downward around circle is twice the surface tension times the circumference, since two surfaces contribute to the force: Fdownward = 2T(2πr) Pi – Po = 4T/r for a spherical bubble Pi – Po = 2T/r for half a bubble Po Pi Pi T water treatment

  33. Attachment to floc • Ratio of area/volume increases with decreasing size • Forces acting on a gas bubble: Internal pressure x area = surface tension x circumference • Easier for bubble to form against solid water treatment
