This study evaluated the efficiency of titanium tetrachloride (TiCl4) on chlorophyll-a (105.7±10.2 µg/L) and turbidity (17.5±5.7 NTU (nephelometry turbidity unit)) removals in a pond water compared to aluminum potassium sulfate (AlK(SO4)2). Jar-test experiments were performed at various mixing speeds (rapid: 110~170 rpm, slow: 20~60 rpm), coagulant doses (0.02~0.48 mM), and pH levels (1~12) to determine the conditions at which chlorophyll-a and turbidity removals were most efficient. Within the experimental range, the chlorophyll-a (90~94%) and turbidity (91~93%) removals were high regardless of rapid-mixing speed. The maximum chlorophyll-a removal was 96% at 30 rpm of slow-mixing speed and turbidity removal was ≥90% at ≥30 rpm of slow-mixing speed. The chlorophyll-a removal and turbidity efficiencies increased as TiCl4 concentration ([TiCl4]) increased. The chlorophyll-a removal at [TiCl4]=0.25 mM and the turbidity removal at [TiCl4]=0.39 mM were ≥90%. The chlorophyll-a removals at pH=3~8 were ≥90% and the turbidity removals at pH≥6 were ≥87%. Therefore, the conditions with ≥90% chlorophyll-a and turbidity removals were slow mixing=30 rpm, [TiCl4]≥0.39 mM, and 6≤pH≤8 regardless of rapid-mixing speed.
Key Words: Chlorophyll-a, Coagulant dose, Mixing speed, pH, Titanium Tetrachloride, Turbidity
