Sarwoko Mangkoedihardjo : Sedimentation and Filtration for Ferrous Treatment of Saline Water
Prof. Dr. Ir. Sarwoko Mangkoedihardjo MScES
This report presents chemical desalination process for sodium chloride-containing water of minimum
10 g NaCl LG1. Effective dose of ferrous sulphate of 50% stoichiometric value in reaction with NaCl could achieve
ferric salt removal of more than 99% in sedimentation tank. Silica sand filters used were not substantially able to remove
the precipitated ferric salt. The associated water quality parameters such as pH, turbidity, color and total dissolved
solids were performed in counterbalance each other.
