Physical and chemical properties of activated sludge floc (EN)

Physical and chemical characteristics of activated sludge such as floc size, density, specific surface, carbohydrate content, dehydrogenase activity and settleability were investigated by seven parallel bench scale activated sludge units operated under different sludge ages (1.1-17.4 days). The analytical methods used included a dye adsorption technique for specific surface area determinations, the Coulter Counter method for floc size measurements and interference microscopy for floc density determinations. The typical floc sizes were found to be in the range 10-70 mum with floc densities in the range 1.015-1.034 g cm-3. A strong correlation between floc density and size was obtained. The specific surface areas measured (typically 100-200 m2 g-1 dry sludge) were found to be one to two orders of magnitude higher than the corresponding geometric floc surface areas, indicating a porous floc structure. Sludge settleability, for non-filamentous sludges, was well correlated to both floc size, density and specific surface area, but not to the sludge carbohydrate content, which was found to vary between 6 and 18%.
