LAGE FILHO, Frederico de Almeida. Evaluation of filtration and ozonation of a primary sanitary effluent: aspects of microbacial inactivation and ozonation variables. Quím. Nova [online]. 2008, vol.31, n.2, pp.312-316. ISSN 0100-4042.

Ozonation tests with and without prior filtration by means of a 50 micron mesh cartridge filter were conducted with primary sanitary effluents. Filtration led to increased inactivation efficiencies with regard to total and thermotolerant coliforms but it did not seem to influence heterotrophic plate count (HPC) bacteria inactivation efficiencies significantly. Application of the Chick-Watson model to experimental data obtained in the situation of constant inactivation showed that the ozone dosage was more important to bacterial inactivation than the contact time with regard to the cases of thermotolerant coliform inactivation in filtered samples and HPC bacteria and total coliform inactivation in non-filtered samples.

Keywords : primary sanitary effluent; filtration; ozonation.
