Effect of electric field on activated sludge in water
The results of the study of the effect of a dc electric field on activated sludge of aeration tanks. It is experimentally detected that the specific oxidation rate of organic compounds by activated sludge increases up to 90.5% with electric field processing, and then decreases. The observed effect is substantiated. The results obtained can find wide application in purification of sewage polluted by organic compounds.
