Performance Studies on a Pharmaceutical Wastewater Treatment Plant with a Special Reference to Total Dissolved Solids Removal

Abstract—Every community produces both liquid and solid wastes. From the stand point of sources of generation wastewater may be defined as a combination of the liquid or water carried waste removed from institutions, residences, commercial and industrial establishments. The ultimate disposal of wastewater can only be onto the land or into the water. But whenever the water courses are used for the ultimate disposal, the wastewater is given a treatment to prevent any injury to the aquatic life in the receiving water. Normally the treatment consists of removal of suspended and dissolved solids through different units of ETP. Experiments were conducted with different sizes of activated carbon for TDS removal. Activated carbon plays a major role for TDS removal. Reduction in the size of activated carbon increases the efficiency to reduce TDS that is due to the increased surface area. But very fine activated carbon is of no use as no proper packing can be done and it will have more particle space and hence dissolved solids easily pass through the spaces. Hence the size plays a major role for TDS removal and proper back washing of filters is also important.

Index Terms—Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP), Waste water, Activated Carbon.
