Some Tests with Hydrogen Ion Method of Water Treatment

Issue 1 and Volume 74.

Some Tests with Hydrogen Ion Method of Water Treatment Experiments to Determine Optimum Concentrations for Coagulation of Various Waters—Application to Actual Conditions at Plants EFFICIENCY and economy in filtration is ever the aim of the efficient operator and his study is always done until a view to obtaining the best results in this respect. The following paper gives some very practical ideas along this line and illustrates the methods of obtaining the optimum of hydrogen ion concentration in order to assist the plant operator. The paper is well worthy of study. At a conference of engineers and filter plant superintendents of the Southeastern States, held at Atlanta in July, 1922, E. J. Theriault described very comprehensively results obtained by the U. S. Public Health Service in a very exhaustive laboratory study of the value of hydrogen ion concentration in the control of coagulation at water purification plants. This study was…
