We’ve sầu learned calculations for sludge age process control and activated sludge process control in recent “Math Solutions” articles, but there are yet more problems to lớn be solved when it comes khổng lồ biological wastewater treatment.

MLVSS is part of mixed liquor suspended solids (MLSS), but the former represents the concentration of organic bacterial cells (biomass) in activated sludge (AS) while the latter indicates the total concentration of suspended solids in AS (including inorganic or non-biological solids in addition khổng lồ biomass). Thus, MLVSS is more representative of microorganism concentration.

This tool for operators — represented through video clip tutorials — offers mathematical templates for performing accurate calculations. MLVSS calculations may have sầu different requirements such as expressing the results as pounds, square feet, cubic feet, increment of millions, or even incorporating a time element in calculation solutions. Depending on the calculation used for MLVSS, calculations with the flow or concentrations require explicit formula use.

Exact step-by-step solutions khổng lồ the word problem below are accessible via the videos that follow.

Determine the amount in milligrams per liter (mg/L or ppm) of MLVSS lớn be maintained in the aerator of a conventional activated sludge plant. Assume a food/microorganism (F/M) ratio of 0.65 lbs chemical oxygen dem& (COD) per day per 1 lb of MLVSS under aeration for the plant. Average COD of untreated effluent is 800 mg/L, average primary treated COD is 645 mg/L, and average daily flow is 102,000 gallons per hour (GPH). Aerator dimensions are 78.208556150 feet long, 40 feet wide, 17 feet side wall depth, and 2 feet free-board.
