Background: Removal of turbidity is essential due to its hygienic, environmental and aesthetics effects. Therefore, this study aimed to determine electrocoagulation efficiency in high seasonal turbidity.
Materials and Methods: This experimental study was conducted in bench scale. The electrochemical reactor was consist of cylindrical glass column having an internal diameter of 5 cm and a height of 51 cm and operated in the batch mode. Two sheets of aluminum spaced 2 cm apart were installed in the cell’s electrodes. The studied parameters was current density, reaction time and initial turbidity.
Results: Turbidity removal increased by reaction time, initial turbidity and current density. Regarding amount of produced sludge and economic aspects, reaction time of 2 min and current density of 3 mA/cm2 were selected as optimum conditions.
Conclusion: Results of present work indicated that the electrocoagulation process is capable to reduce high concentration of turbidity to permissible standard levels efficiently.
