dc.description.abstractThere is an ever growing need for new and superior water treatment methods which will remove the alarming growth and variety of pollutants present in our waters. Suspended particulate matter such as clay, algae, and bacteria are troublesome pollutants in almost all waters and particularly in surface water. Electrophoretic and electrochemical systems appear well adapted for removal of these electrically charged pollutants and in addition have the potential of being entirely automated. Numerous design concepts are advanced and tested through the use of laboratory models. These include a parallel plate model which was designed entirely for electrophoretic removal, and porous filter and electrode grid models which incorporated both electrophoretic and electrochemical capabilities. Successful water clarification was attained with the parallel plate model only when the influent water was of very low electrical conductivity. Water purification by electrochemical means overcame this problem and was successful both operationally and economically. As a result of the experimental testing, an example design of a small semiautomated electrochemical water system is offered which incorporates electrochemical flocculation, settling and electrochemical disinfection operations.en
