Abstract

This report has been prepared with the idea of briefly summarizing the most important principles underlying the coagulations/flocculation process as it applies to water and wastewater treatment. The production of potable water from a supply which has been contaminated by naturally-occurring or man-made pollutants has been an object of concern throughout history. Several broad aspects have been considered in the report, such as the history, the nature and physical chemistry of colloidal particles, the theories of and the factors affecting coagulation/flocculation, and control of the coagulation/flocculation process. It is advisable for those persons engaged in the dynamic environmental sciences to occasionally review the basic principles having to do with the processes being employed. In this light, this report provides a cursory review of pertinent literature with regard to the history, the stoichiomentry and physical mechanisms involved, the techniques of process control and an assessment of the state-of-the-art of the coagulation/flocculation process. Of course, this discussion could have been written more extensive detail, but the volume of such an enterprise would be excessive. For those desiring further information, and extensive bibliography of references has been appended.
