Trattamento delle acque reflue. Da Wikipedia, l'enciclopedia libera. Vista aerea di un impianto di depurazione delle acque. Si definisce trattamento delle acque reflue (o depurazione delle acque reflue) il processo di rimozione dei contaminanti da un'acqua reflua di origine urbana o industriale, ovvero di un effluente che è stato contaminato da inquinanti organici e/o inorganici. Le acque reflue non possono essere reimmesse nell'ambiente tal quali poiché i recapiti finali come il terreno, il mare, i fiumi ed i laghi non sono in grado di ricevere una quantità di sostanze inquinanti superiore alla propria capacità autodepurativa. Il ciclo depurativo è costituito da una combinazione di più processi di natura chimica, fisica e biologica. Tipologia di reflui[modifica | modifica wikitesto] Acqua reflua prima del trattamento.

Si può notare l'elevata torbidità del campione di acqua prelevato, indice di un elevata concentrazione di solidi sospesi.

During dry weather (and small storms), all flows are handled by the publicly owned treatment works (POTW). During large storms, the relief structure allows some of the combined stormwater and sewage to be discharged untreated to an adjacent water body. A combined sewer is a sewage collection system of pipes and tunnels designed to also collect surface runoff.

This type of gravity sewer design is no longer used in building new communities (because current design separates sanitary sewers from runoff), but many older cities continue to operate combined sewers.[1] Combined sewers can cause serious water pollution problems during combined sewer overflow (CSO) events when wet weather flows exceed the sewage treatment plant capacity. The discharges contain human and industrial waste, and can cause beach closures, restrictions on shellfish consumption and contamination of drinking water sources.[2] Background[edit] Combined sewer overflows (CSOs)[edit] Health impacts[edit] Flood Control and Drainage Engineering, Fourth Edition - S.N.

COD - Chemical Oxygen Demand - LAR Process Analysers. Thermal Oxidation (High Temperature Method) LAR's QuickCOD-analyzers use a special thermal combustion method at 1,200°C, which allows a catalyst-free oxidization of the complete sample including any particles. Following which an oxygen detector determines the amount of oxygen consumed by the combustion.

This very fast analysis has a cycle time of only 3 minutes and does not require any chemicals. The QuickCODultra analyzer measures the oxygen demand of all oxidisable substances in the waste water including organic nitrogen. Correlation between TOC and COD The COD concentration is calculated by use of this method that is correlated by a factor and the TOC concentration in the waste water is determined by use of a standard TOC analysis method.

Electrochemical measurement principle With the patented Lead-Dioxide-Electrode by LAR OH-radicals are produced. This method offers a fast, simple, accurate and pollution-free alternative to the common dichromate method (wet chemical method). Total suspended solids. TSS was previously called non-filterable residue (NFR), but was changed to TSS because of ambiguity in other scientific disciplines. Measurement[edit] TSS of a water or wastewater sample is determined by pouring a carefully measured volume of water (typically one litre; but less if the particulate density is high, or as much as two or three litres for very clean water) through a pre-weighed filter of a specified pore size, then weighing the filter again after the drying process that removes all water on the filter.

Filters for TSS measurements are typically composed of glass fibres.[2] The gain in weight is a dry weight measure of the particulates present in the water sample expressed in units derived or calculated from the volume of water filtered (typically milligrams per litre or mg/L). If the water contains an appreciable amount of dissolved substances (as certainly would be the case when measuring TSS in seawater), these will add to the weight of the filter as it is dried. Surfactant. Proposed features/Harbour. Details see Hafen and harbour A harbour (also port, North American English Harbor) is a place where ships, boats, and barges can seek shelter from stormy weather. This article describes some of the many features associated with a harbour and the approach from the sea.

Output from a shallow water equation model of water in a bathtub. The water experiences five splashes which generate surface gravity waves that propagate away from the splash locations and reflect off the bathtub walls. The shallow water equations (also called Saint-Venant equations in its unidimensional form, after Adhémar Jean Claude Barré de Saint-Venant) are a set of hyperbolic partial differential equations (or parabolic if viscous shear is considered) that describe the flow below a pressure surface in a fluid (sometimes, but not necessarily, a free surface).

The shallow water equations can also be simplified to the commonly used 1-D Saint-Venant equation. The equations are derived[1] from depth-integrating the Navier–Stokes equations, in the case where the horizontal length scale is much greater than the vertical length scale. While a vertical velocity term is not present in the shallow water equations, note that this velocity is not necessarily zero. Equations[edit] where and with.

Free surface. Free surface of the sea, viewed from below In physics, a free surface is the surface of a fluid that is subject to zero parallel shear stress,[1] such as the boundary between two homogeneous fluids,[2] for example liquid water and the air in the Earth's atmosphere. Unlike liquids, gases cannot form a free surface on their own.[3] Fluidized/liquified solids, including slurries, granular materials, and powders may form a free surface. In a free liquid that is not affected by outside forces such as a gravitational field, internal attractive forces only play a role (e.g. Van der Waals forces, hydrogen bonds). Its free surface will assume the shape with the least surface area for its volume: a perfect sphere.

Flow and pressure. Differential Pressure Flow meters | Omega Engineering. The calculation of fluid flow rate by reading the pressure loss across a pipe restriction is perhaps the most commonly used flow measurement technique in industrial applications (Figure 2-1). The pressure drops generated by a wide variety of geometrical restrictions have been well characterized over the years, and, as compared in Table 2, these primary or "head" flow elements come in a wide variety of configurations, each with specific application strengths and weaknesses.

Variations on the theme of differential pressure flow measurement (dp flow) include the use of pitot tubes and variable-area meters (rotameters), and are discussed later in this chapter. Primary Element Options In the 18th century, Bernoulli first established the relationship between static and kinetic energy in a flowing stream.

As a fluid passes through a restriction, it accelerates, and the energy for this acceleration is obtained from the fluid's static pressure. V = k (h/D)0.5 or Q = kA(h/D)0.5 or W = kA(hD)0.5. Open-channel flow. Open-channel flow, a branch of hydraulics and fluid mechanics, is a type of liquid flow within a conduit with a free surface, known as a channel. The other type of flow within a conduit is pipe flow. These two types of flow are similar in many ways but differ in one important respect: the free surface. Open-channel flow has a free surface, whereas pipe flow does not. Classifications of flow[edit] Open-channel flow can be classified and described in various ways based on the change in flow depth with respect to time and space.

Time as the criterion Steady flow – The depth of flow does not change over time, or if it can be assumed to be constant during the time interval under consideration. Unsteady flow – The depth of flow does change with time. Space as the criterion Uniform flow – The depth of flow is the same at every section of the channel. Varied flow – The depth of flow changes along the length of the channel. Varied flow can be further classified as either rapidly or gradually varied. Surge and transient flow | Fluid Mechanics Ltd. Transient flow, is flow where the flow velocity and pressure are changing with time. When changes occur to a fluid systems such as the starting or stopping of a pump, closing or opening a valve, or changes in tank levels, then transient flow conditions exist: otherwise the system is steady state. Often transient flow conditions persist as oscillating pressure and velocity waves for some time after the initial event that caused it.

Transient flow is usually referred to as surge or water hammer, and the terms are commonly interchanged. But strictly speaking surge is where the mass oscillation of the fluid is the dominating force and the compressibility of fluid is not significant, for example two connecting reservoirs oscillating up and down. Transient flow problems are commonly solved using a finite difference method known as the method of characteristics and other similar methods. At Fluid Mechanics we have many years’ experience in solving transient flow problems. BM Tecnologie Industriali. Datasheettripod.
