Abstract: The demand for better quality drinking water gives inspiration for advancement in the functioning of water treatment processes. Jet mixing technology, widely adopted in Flocculation process is unique due to its advantages over mechanical stirrer or vanes. Jet flocculator take primacy, as it do not have any moving parts inside the reactor. The present experimental investigation focuses on the examination of jets in flocculation. Comprehensive study of various parameters such as nozzle diameter, angle of inclination, flow pattern and jet position in two geometrical shapes of flocculation chamber: Square and Circular. Effect of tank shapes on flocculation process is analysed and compared.
Keywords: Flocculation, Jet mixing, turbidity, velocity Gradient.
Scope of the Article: Service level agreements (drafting, negotiation, monitoring and management).
