Half plant activated alumina test: Final report

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A half reactor test was initiated at B Reactor on February 1, 1967, to determine whether the concentration of P{sup 32} and As{sup 76} in the reactor effluent water would be reduced by the addition of activated alumina in the water treatment process. This test was prompted by the reported effectiveness of activated alumina in sorption of phosphates when water flow is through a packed bed of this material. Although direct feed of material would not be expected to be as effective, testing of this possible approach appeared warranted. This report summarizes the results of this test. Samples taken from ... continued below

This test was prompted by the reported effectiveness of activated alumina in sorption of phosphates when water flow is through a packed bed of this material. Although direct feed of material would not be expected to be as effective, testing of this possible approach appeared warranted. This report summarizes the results of this test. Samples taken from each effluent riser during reactor operation indicated no improvement in either As{sup 76} or P{sup 32} performance. This comparison is shown below with a complete tabulation of daily values included as Attachment 1.
