A novel advanced technology for removal of phenol from wastewaters in a Ventury reactor

ABSTRACT
Phenol is a major pollutant in the waste waters coming from coal processing. Hydrodynamic cavitation presents a novel technology for phenol removal from waste waters. Hydrodynamic cavitation device with a cavitator of Ventury type for waste water purification was constructed. The hydraulic characteristic of the device were determined: the dependences of flow and cavitation number on inlet pressure. The effects of cavitation number, phenol concentration, pH, temperature, time and quantity of added H202 on the degree of phenol reduction in the waste water was investigated. The optimal technological parameters of the investigated cavitation purification process of waste waters from phenol were determined.
