Course Description

Code4 EYA8170
NameWater and Wastewater Treatment Laboratory Course
Credits5 ects
ObjectivesThe aim of the course is to give the student a solid view of wastewater treatment and household water treatment, the factors affecting them, and the operation and dimensioning of unit operations and processes. The course teaches the theory of physical, chemical and biological methods of wastewater treatment and domestic water treatment, as well as technical implementation methods. During group laboratory work and work reports, students learn teamwork skills as well as the preparation of a technical report.

The course also includes smaller group laboratory work related to process and water supply technology as well as general unit processes in environmental technology. The aim of this laboratory work is to provide a basic view of, for example, the operation and dimensioning of various unit operations and processes, as well as the factors that affect them. The processes and phenomena of environmental engineering become familiar through experimental activities and related theory.
In smaller laboratory works, practical research is carried out in connection with, for example, liquid pumping, pressurized pipe flow, experimental pumping of a groundwater body, coagulation and flocculation in household water treatment, settling clarification and filtration. The topics of the works vary from year to year.
Content- The overall process and unit processes of the water treatment plant
- Household water production at a pilot water plant
- Coagulation-flocculation process at the pilot plant
- Post-chemicalization at a pilot plant to reduce water corrosivity.
- Different disinfection methods

- Total wastewater treatment process and unit processes
- Wastewater treatment at a pilot activated sludge plant
- Sludge loads, space loads and BOD / COD ratio
- Removal of organic matter at the pilot plant
- Phosphorus removal, nitrification and nitrogen removal and solids removal at the pilot plant
- Tertiary treatment of wastewater

- Pumping, pump characteristic generation and pump efficiency
- Friction loss and local losses for pressurized pipe flow
- Test pumping of a groundwater body
- Optimization of the precipitation process
RequirementsThe course includes compulsory laboratory work related to the pilot water plant and the pilot wastewater treatment plant. The laboratory work is preceded by a related lecture and a guided introduction to the laboratory work. Each pilot laboratory work is preceded by an exam on the topic under consideration, which at the same time prepares the student for future laboratory work and ensures that the work done is of full benefit in learning. Laboratory reports are prepared for laboratory work performed at the pilot plant, which are also evaluated.

The second part of the course consists of smaller laboratory works, the design of which and the learning of the related theory are part of the performance. Evaluated work reports are also prepared for these works.
