Abstract:
The effects of water composition as they apply to the design of virgin and regenerated activated alumina and virgin and regenerated bone char defluoridation units were studied. Freundlich isotherm analysis was used to determine the degree of the effect compared to an arbitrary standard. The results showed that ionic strength, divalent metal ions, arsenic, and pH connected to buffering capacity have significant effects. The anions sulfate, nitrate, and chloride showed negligible effect on the removal of fluoride.
