Sample text

5 is adopted in systems operating in temperate climates, in which good compaction of the sludge in the secondary sedimentation tank is aimed at. In warm-climate regions, however, the tendency is to use higher values of R. One reason is that in these regions nitrification is very likely to occur in the reactor, due to the high temperatures. Additionally, it is also probable that denitrification will occur in the secondary sedimentation tank. The denitrification corresponds to the transformation of the nitrate into gaseous nitrogen.

However, the increase is not directly proportional to the relationship between the sludge ages. 4 is that the calculation of the reactor volume is a function of the sludge age θc , and not of the hydraulic detention time t. Because of this, t should not be used in the sizing of the reactor by means of the formula V = t·Q, but only to evaluate the conditions of hydraulic stability and the resistance to shock loading. In case the system is without recirculation, naturally, the concept θc = t can be used.

Typical values of Xv in an activated sludge system are: • conventional activated sludge = 1,500 to 3,500 mgVSS/L • extended aeration = 2,500 to 4,000 mgVSS/L The maximum design concentration of MLSS in the reactor is generally limited to 4,500–5,000 mg/L. Extended aeration systems tend to have a higher MLSS concentration than the conventional activated sludge systems. Naturally, the larger the concentration of MLSS (or MLVSS) in the reactor, the greater the availability of the biomass to assimilate the influent substrate, resulting in the need for smaller reactor volumes (for a given removal efficiency).
