Abstract:

INTRODUCTION

A bench-scale test was developed to predict full-scale primary clarifier performance for phosphorus removal. This test was developed by simulating surface overflow rate (SOR) and flocculation time, which are the limiting parameters for primary clarification. The results of this study provide a chemical dosing strategy to achieve low phosphorus removal in a primary clarifier using CEPT (Chemically Enhanced Primary Treatment), which is followed by biological processes.
