Higher Wastewater Treatment Using Cationic Poly Acrylamide (CPAM)

The higher water waste treatment is mostly conducted through Cationic Poly Acrylamide (CPAM) using a wide range of filtration processes that are focused on the various kinds of processes. This blog post will discuss all of these processes in greater detail so that the reader has a deeper understanding of all the processes underuse. 

Primary Clarification of Waste Water Treatment: 

This is the least amount of processing that water filtration treatment centers are willing to conduct. The main focus is to remove suspended solids and organic matter from the wastewater. The process used to achieve this goal is sedimentation as it focuses on taking out the heavy particles. Cationic Poly Acrylamide is the solution that is used to reduce organic debris in the water. The organic debris combines with the chemical and makes heavier and strong particles that do not pass through the gravel used in sedimentation. 

Secondary Wastewater Treatment:

The secondary water treatment process assumes that all the heavy particles and organic molecule concentration have been already taken out of the water stream. Now the water will be treated for the biological molecules and their eradication. The following are the steps that are taken to successfully ensure that. These processes are as follows:

Biofiltration: 

The process utilizes contact filters, general filters, and trickling filters to ensure that the water filtration is clearing out the bacterial impurities of the water. The process focuses on aerobic biological processes to reduce the bacterial concentration of impurities in the water. 

Aeration: 

The process focuses on increasing the oxygen saturation of water by bursting intense air into the water. It is a long process as the water needs to be processed with intense air for 30 hours but the process also ensures that all the contamination is completely eradicated. 

Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF):

This is another form of water filtration that focuses on the wastewater treatment through pressurizing the water with air. This process does have similarities to aeration but these two different processes.

In DAF, the water is passed through the air that dissolves into water, the air is passed through the water under intense pressure. Now that the air has filled the water, the air is now released at atmospheric pressure ina floatation tank basin. Now all the suspended material bonds with the air particles in the water and become foam. The foam is skimmed out of the water and it takes away all of the impurities with it.  

DAF as a water treatment is not only used for general water treatment but it widely used in cleaning out the industrial wastewater as well. The wastewater from oil refineries, paper mills, processing plants, general water treatments, and other industrial facilities. There is another similar process of induced gas floatation that is also commonly used for industrial water treatment. 

These are the main processes used for water treatment using the  Cationic Poly Acrylamide (CPAM) as a catalyst for water cleaning processes. We look forward to your comments!
