Detailed Solution for Test: Purification of Water - 2 - Question 3

The turbidity denotes the concentration of colioids. Alkalinity is used for restoring pH after alum (coagulant) addition.
In the case of low turbidity small number of colloids make the coagulation difficult. If the alkalinity is high, moderate alum doses will result in the formation of AI(OH)3 which is amorphous and gelatinous. So sweep coagulation takes place. High turbidity-low alkalinity: With relatively small doses of coagulant, water can be coagulated by adsorption and charge neutralization. Depression of pH makes this method more effective because aquometallic ions are more effective at low pH.
High turbidity-high alkalinity: The pH will be relatively unaffected by coagulant addition. Because of high alkalinity, adsorption and charge neutralization will be less effective than in waters of low alkalinity. Higher coagulant dosage should be used to ensure sweep coagulation.

Test: Purification of Water - 2 - Question 4

Consider the following statements:
1. Most colloidal particles in water are negatively charged.
2. The surface charge on colloidal particles is the major contributor to their long term stability.
Which of these statements is/are correct?

Detailed Solution for Test: Purification of Water - 2 - Question 4

The most important factor contributing to the stability of colloidal suspensions is the excessively large surface to volume ratio from their very small size. The surface phenomenon results in accumulation of electrical charge at the particle surface.

Test: Purification of Water - 2 - Question 5

What is the ratio of rate of back-washing to that of filtration in a typical rapid sand filter?

Test: Purification of Water - 2 - Question 6

In what intervals are rapid-sand filters to be cleaned by backwashing?

Test: Purification of Water - 2 - Question 7

The clariflocculator will occur in which of the following things?

Detailed Solution for Test: Purification of Water - 2 - Question 7

In a clariflocculator. The chemical coagulant is, first of all, fed (either dry or in solution form) into the raw water through the feeding device. This mixture is then thoroughly mixed and agitated in the mixing basin. The 'floc', which is formed as a result of the chemical reaction taking place in the mixing basin, is then allowed to consolidate in the flocculation tank. The flocculated water is finally passed into the sedimentation tank where these flocculated particles settle down and get removed.
