The design solid surface loading in an activated sludge process is
Explanation: The design solid surface loading during a gravity thickening process in an activated sludge plant lies between 25 to 30 kg/m2/day.
Which of the following plant nutrient is not found in municipal sewage?
Explanation: Potassium, Phosphorous and Nitrogen are found in municipal sewage having maximum plant nutrient concentration of 3.3% of total municipal waste as nitrogen.
The design pressure of ____ is applied on pressure type flotation device.
Explanation: In pressure type flotation device, 3-5kg/cm2 pressure is applied to the sludge thickening process.
The design Hydraulic loading rate of the gravity thickener is _______ m3/m2/day.
Explanation: The range of design Hydraulic loading rate of the gravity thickener is 20-25m3/m2/day.
Which of the following process is not involved in sludge thickening?
Explanation: The process involved in sludge thickening are gravity thickening, air flotation and centrifugation.
7% of solids concentration of thickened sludge is obtained from gravity thickener.What is the type of sludge?
Explanation: When the thickened sludge, solid concentration is between 7-9, the type of sludge obtained from gravity thickner is activated.
Which of the following is not used for drying of sludge?
Explanation: The process used for drying of sludge is multiple effect evaporation, rotary dryer, spray dryer and flash dryer.
In which of the following method, the sludge is rotated for dewatering process?
Explanation: In the centrifugation process, the force is applied so that rotation of sludge takes place which helps in the dewatering of sludge.
The dewatered sludge cannot be disposed by
Explanation: Acid fermentation is a sludge digestion process and composting, heat drying and incineration are the methods of disposal of dewatered sludge.
In which of the following process, the sludge is dried and disposed in land?
Explanation: Good amount of dried solids is produced by drying bed process and they are commonly used in the sludge dewatering process due to their low cost and better efficiency.
