RESEARCH OF TREATMENT PROCESS OF WELL WATER WITH A HIGH CONCENTRATION OF MANGANESE AND IRON

Abstract

In article we present the experimental results on demanganation of well water where the manganese concentration exceeds 5 mg/l and iron concentration – 20 mg/l. The developed technology for demanganation is described. The results of experiments at water treatment plant of Komsomolsk-on-Amur are presented.

Keywords: iron, manganese, manganese removal, water purification.

Introduction

Manganese is contained in Earth crust abundantly and typically occurs together with iron. If manganese concentration exceeds 0.1 mg/l water becomes unfit for drinking, industrial and service purposes, making spots appear on sanitaryware and leaving unwanted water taste. On internal walls of pipelines some sediments appear and go off as brownish black membrane. In most cases, iron compounds are great part of that sediment, besides manganese.

Bivalent manganese contained in underground waters is very slowly oxidizes to trivalent and tetravalent form with oxygen dissolved in water or with other oxidizers.

As it was shown by chemical analyses manganese concentration in water from artesian wells of Komsomolsk-on-Amur may reach 2.5~7.4 mg/l i.e. significantly exceeds common values. Today dissolved manganese concentration in water treated at Komsomolsk-on-Amur water treatment plant may reach 0.7~0.9 mg/l which exceeds SanPiN 2.1.4.1074-01 [1] norms 7~9 times. Besides, black suspended matter is contained in water – particles of oxidized manganese membrane developed in the foiling of high-rate filters (pic. 1).

Pic. 1 – Oxidized manganese membrane particles in service water

The purpose of this research was to develop a technology for demanganation of well water delivered to Komsomolsk-on-Amur network ensuring water quality parameters as per SanPiN 2.1.4.1074-01 and providing good quality drinking water for end-users.

Materials and methods

Technology consists of stages of gradual adding in water under treatment an alkaline agent (NaOH), an oxidizer (KMnO4) and a coagulant (aluminum polyoxichloride) followed by filtration of the sediment developed on catalyst filing (MFO-47) and fine post-treatment via granular filling layer (Filter-AG). Concentrations of chemicals were as follows: NaOH solution – 20 g/l, KMnO4 solution – 5 g/l, aluminum polyoxichloride solution – 3 g/l.

To study demanganation of well water, small-scale experimental plant was designed and made (WTP – water treatment plant) (pic. 2).

The plant is a mobile station for water treatment ensuring treatment at least as per SanPiN 2.1.4.1074-01. The water treatment technology utilized ensures water treatment from coarsely dispersed, colloid and dissolved foreign matters. WTP may treat water from artesian wells and surface water sources used for technological and drinking purposes. The plant is not for treatment of sewage water containing high level of color and silt.

WTP operation principle is based on the following water treatment technologies:

  • correction of primary water (alkalization, acidification, etc.) to change the media parameters to optimize water treatment process and improve final parameters of water treated by feeding chemicals via dispensing pumps;
  • oxidizing admixtures dissolved in primary water by gaseous or liquid oxidizers to turn them into colloid form, done by mixing water with air, ozone, chlorine, potassium permanganate or other oxidizer selected for that purpose;
  • direct-flow coagulation based on primary treatment of water with chemicals (coagulants and flocculants) by feeding required volume of chemicals into water under treatment via dispensing pumps;
  • water filtration via pressurized clarifying mechanical wave filters with special filling;
  • water treatment from hard-to-remove admixtures using extra sorption filters.

Water for treatment in the experimental plant was taken at three main technological stages of water treatment station: from cyclonic aerator, from high-rate filter surface, service water pipeline.

Capacity of the experimental plant was varying from 5 to 25 l/min. If the plant showed maximal permissible result for manganese at the preceding capacity, the next capacity was not set.

Manganese and iron concentrations were determined by atomic absorption analysis method at SHIMADZU AA-6200 plant.

Results and discussion

Study of water demanganation modes on experimental WTP

Mode #1. Treatment of water from cyclonic aerator

Here, water from cyclonic aerator means the water taken from wells and undergoing the first stage of treatment – aeration in cyclonic aerator of Komsomolsk-on-Amur water treatment station.

From pipeline to intake, water was fed to the experimental plant where alkaline solution was added to increase pH and shifting redox potential towards oxidation, KMnO4 as oxidizer and aluminum polyoxichloride as coagulant. Water treated with chemicals was fed in air-stripping tower being the reactions chamber where air agitation was intensively applied and upon 15 minutes’ stay was fed to filtration columns. In filtration columns water was sequentially filtered via MFO-47 filling and then via Filter-AG.

Specifics of the experimental WTP’s operation  in mode 1 were in high dirt load for the plant. High content of iron and manganese caused increased consumption of chemicals causing, together with coagulant, great volume of sediment. That sediment is clogging the first stage filter (MFO-47) and then the second stage filter (Filter-AG).

Existing technological scheme of treatment facilities water upon aeration and ozone adding is delivered to horizontal tanks. Thus, high rate filters experience less load in connection with iron hydroxide – filters are just decreasing residual content of iron in water. In the experimental plant, all the mass of oxidized and hydrolyzed iron is delivered to high rate pressurized filtration, filter operating with high dirt load. The situation is enhanced by adding great doses of alkaline agent to achieve high pH, while charging stabilization of iron hydroxide microsols and/or early hydrolysis of coagulant salts with no impact on suspended matter.

Extra addition of oxidizer solutions (KMnO4) makes that system more difficult to find a way to reduce manganese content in water.

Mode #2. Water treatment after clarifiers

Here water after clarifiers means the water which passed treatment in aerator (ozonation) in the technological chain of water treatment station and is delivered to upper parts of high rate filters for final treatment. Water after clarifiers is free from hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, almost all dissolved iron and partly manganese.

Water treatment mode is similar to mode 1.

Drinking water may be received from process water directly in places and plants identical to the experimental plant.

Mode #3. Treatment of network water

Here network water means the water delivered to end-users’ network.

Three modes of network water treatment were studied: two-stage filtration via filling layer (MFO-47, Filter-AG) (mode 3a); coagulation with further two-stage filtration (mode  3b); full treatment with chemicals and further two-stage filtration (mode 3c, similar to mode 1).

Table 2 lists the results of network water treatment in various modes.

10 0.083
15 0.089
3v 5 0.186 0.014

As seen from Table 2, manganese concentration in any mode of network water filtration drops below the level set forth by SanPiN 2.1.4.1074-01.

Higher manganese concentrations (3b mode) are explained by small acid reaction of coagulant which decreases water’s pH and the effectiveness of catalyst filling MFO-47. That mode, despite the manganese parameters being below SanPiN norms is unreasonable due to non-rational use of coagulant.

The specifications of network water obtained and its high organoleptic features are proving conclusively that one of the ways to deliver high quality drinking water to end-users is to install local small-scale water treatment plants of required capacity similar to the experimental WTP.

Demanganation experiments results are represented in Table 3.

Conclusion

Positive results obtained in the course of the works showed that the technology developed may be applied for treatment of drinking and process/service industrial water. It is most effective at stations of drinking water treatment and final treatment installed at food processors, small enterprises making products utilizing highly treated water, small service enterprises for delivering drinking water to end-users, at any enterprise/organization of any other sector where increased requirements are brought to the quality of water used.
