Abstract

A solids-water separator equipped with multiple series of inclined coalescence plates (CPSI) was recently developed for removal of Total Suspended Solids (TSS) from water or wastewater. The design of separator by principles of the application of coalescence plates would enhance uniform flow of water or wastewater throughout the entire flow cross-section. The performance can be affected by factors such as influent concentration, flowrate, viscosity and specific gravity, rising properties, temperature, and the detention time of wastewater in the system. In this research, in additional to the experimental works that had been carried out to “proof-of-concept” on the effects of vibration on solids-water (saline water) separation, comparisons with other coalescence separators of different designs were also included. From this research, it can be concluded that vibrating CPSI could enhance suspended solids-water separation. However, in order to separate Suspended Solids (SS) from saline water effectively, optimal vibration frequency and amplitude need to be chosen for a specific known distribution of particle sizes in water, in additional to specific gravity of solid particles and viscosity of the liquid.
