Investigation of Hose Dyeing Industry Waste Water Treatment Using Jar-Test
Esra Billur Balcioğlu, Sevgi Güneş Durak

Jar-test based on coagulation is one of the conventional and constantly applicable methods for treatment of wastewaters. Aim of this study is to determine the treatment efficiency of hose dying industry wastewaters using coagulation and flocculation. Ipek Textile wastewaters were used as samples. Samples were obtained from two different points. First sample was from neutralisation output (before aeration tank), second sample was from industry output. In the study Al3(SO4)3, FeCl3, Natural Coagulant and polymer were used as coagulant and coagulant auxiliary product, respectively. The efficiency of coagulation- flocculation process was investigated at these samples. At the end of the study, Al2(SO4)3 can be preferred as coagulant due to its high removal efficiency in hose dying industry wastewaters. However because of sulphate problem in textile industries, FeCl3 should be used which is similar to Al2(SO4)3 with polymer addition. Besides, use of this coagulant will reduce load of biological treatment removal significantly.
