Floc characterization with turbiscan apparatus: Which useful information for sludge thichening and dewatering ?

P. Ginisty, I. Igwet, IFTS - Institute of Filtration & Techniques of Separation; R. Ramsch, Formulaction, France

Sludge is produced by wastewater treatment and is in the form of a liquid slurry with a water content of 95-99% and the is treated (treatment principle represented by the figure below) to be compatible with its final destination (use in agriculture, incineration, landfilling…)

Effectiveness and cost of sludge treatment and disposal operations are strongly affected by its volume, so reduction of volume is certainly a pillar for the development of sustainable management systems. To this purpose, thickening and dewatering are the necessary steps to improve sludge solids concentration and most of these operations require flocculation pretreatment to obtain an efficient separation process between water and solids.

Treatment optimization is very empirical as operators should continuously adapt the machines performances to sludge and flocs properties and variations of these properties over time. If some methods are classically used for sludge characterization, relatively few are available for flocs and levels of knowledge of flocs behavior remains low. It is necessary to take into account the water release from flocs, depending of the constraints in the mechanical dewatering machines. Only free water, sum of the supernatant water and bulk water, respectively present between and inside the flocs can be removed by mechanical processes but flocculation can modify the ratio between free and bound water [1].

Laboratory methods and devices should be tested to get more knowledge about flocs properties and behavior, too help the selection of polymers and corresponding dosage and to collect data about their dewaterability. Among them, drainage and CST tests vs mixing time, basket spin tests with shearing, limit dryness determination can give useful information [2]. It is also necessary to take into account how the way of floc formation can influence their properties.

This paper presents flocs characterization by Turbiscan apparatus. Its allows detection at an early stage all kinds of destabilisation such flocculation, sedimentation, coalescence… 20 to 50 times faster than the visual detection. The Turbiscan works on...
