  • Insight into the enhanced sludge dewaterability by Tannic acid (cas 1401-55-4) conditioning and pH regulation

  • Add time:09/04/2019    Source:sciencedirect.com

    Tannic acid (cas 1401-55-4) (TA), a phenolic compound, may be considered as a sludge conditioning agent on account of its ability to precipitate protein. In this study, the effectiveness of TA conditioning on enhancing waste activated sludge (WAS) dewatering was investigated at various pH values. The results indicated that with the conditioning of 0.15 mmol TA per gram of total solid (TS), the WAS dewaterability was affected distinctly by the pH regulation. The reductions of 86.8% capillary suction time (CST), 96.3% specific resistance of filtration (SRF), and 23.6% water content (Wc) of dewatered sludge cake were achieved at an optimal pH value of 4.0. Meanwhile, obvious alterations were observed in some aspects like supernatant viscosity, zeta potential, particle size and extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) polymers. Correlation analysis indicated that the proteins in slime EPS and loosely bound EPS dominantly governed sludge dewaterability. Fluorescence quenching analysis indicated that in the range of acidity, the increase of pH value afforded more binding sites of sludge EPS for TA. However, the removal of EPS protein depended on the combined effect of TA conditioning and pH regulation. The findings provided a novel approach and explanation of WAS dewaterability enhancement using organic additive conditioning and pH regulation.
