Hot and Cold Water Supply (British Standards Institution)

Presents a hugely illustrated consultant for designers, installers and contractors engaged on cold and warm water provides. The booklet takes account of the 1999 Water rules and British ordinary BS 6700. the recent version takes account of the newest necessities of the construction rules and contours a brand new part on sprinkler platforms.

Sustainable Water for the Future: Water Recycling versus Desalination

This e-book is a part of a sequence on sustainability. particularly, it bargains with the difficulty of sustainable water use. clean resources of potable water are being depleted internationally. natural water is the target of water utilities in addition to numerous industries. well beyond the experimental degree, membrane approaches are actually a confirmed and trustworthy approach to delivering top of the range, good value water.

Water Productivity in Rainfed Agriculture: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

The problem of water shortage because of inadequate seasonal rainfall and dry spell occurrences in the course of cropping seasons is compounded by means of inefficient agricultural practices through smallholder farmers the place insignificant soil and water conservation efforts are utilized. The speculation of this learn is that some of the prior study efforts have taken a fragmented method of take care of the demanding situations dealing with subsistence farmers in rainfed platforms.

Water and Wastewater Treatment: A Guide for the Nonengineering Professional, Second Edition

Lauded for its attractive, hugely readable kind, the best-selling first variation grew to become the preferable advisor for nonengineers fascinated about water and wastewater therapy operations. Water and Wastewater therapy: A consultant for the Nonengineering expert, moment version maintains to supply an easy, nonmathematical account of the unit methods used to regard either consuming water and wastewater.

70]. The parameters studied were: initial concentration, amount of adsorbent, and pH value of solution. The maximum percent metal removal was attained after about 1 h. The greatest increase in the rate of adsorption of metal ions on sawdust was observed for pH changes from 2-5. High removal has been recorded at low surface loading. O. A study was conducted by Li et al. 75 mm crushed shells and Sphagnum peat moss as low-cost natural adsorbent filter materials for the removal of nickel ions from binary aqueous solutions.

The H-class of isotherm has a positive value on the adsorbent surface reflecting the high affinity for solute onto part of the adsorbent surface, and consequently the depletion of solute concentration in the bulk phase. The C-class of isotherm indicates a constant partition of solute between solution and adsorbate. In some instances, after a critical concentration, the curve may show an abrupt change suggesting that sites are becoming available for adsorption. Several types of isothermal adsorption relations are reported.

2 Adsorbent Modification Silica sand was modified by soaking in 40% H2S04 for a period of 4 hrs, and after that the treated sample of silica sand was washed repeatedly with deionized water. Simultaneously, the pH of the supernatant water for washing was checked, and the washing of treated silica sand was done until the pH of the supernatant water reached a neutral pH range. 1 Raw silica sand used in the experiments. the treated sample of silica sand was dried in an oven until completely dry. 3 Preparation of Adsorbate Cr (VI) and Ni (II) Solution A stock Cr (VI) solution of 1000 mg/L was prepared from potassium dichromate salt (K2Cr207).
