Research of the Operating Parameters from Reducing Industrial Water Conductivity through Electro Sorption Technology


Article Preview

In order to reduce the conductivity of power-station’s circulating cooling water and reduce sewage discharge, this essay does research on using electro sorption technology to replace traditional water treatment technology. Through exploring the voltage and flow of the working module from experiment, it determined the optimum working conditions for electro sorption. The experiment includes the efficiency of reducing inlet water conductivity at different voltages, and the effect of flow rate to the treatment, proving that water conductivity will drop from 3,000 to 700 μS/cm on the condition of 1.7 V voltage and 500 L/h flow rate, which makes great sense to Electro sorption industrial applications.
