Ion Exchange The sludge sample from a wastewater treatment plant was used as a source of nitrifying USE OF ION EXCHANGE FOR REMOVAL OF AMMONIUM 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 90 MLVSS, mg/l.

mg N /l./hr. The presence of ammonia in wastewater from industry activities is an important environmental issue; therefore, an adsorption process is one viable alternative process that can be used to reduce concentrations, and accordingly, 10 resins and 6 zeolites were tested for the removal of ammonia from real wastewater ( to 8 mg/L NH 3 − N) containing other cations.

material that has high affinity for ammonia ion (Gotvajn et al. Hence, methods capable of efficient ammonia removal at reasonable cost are highly desired. Recently, ion-exchange has been applied in ammonia removal from aqueous solution due to the high removal efficiency and relatively simple operation (Bashir et al.

a; Lei et al. Ammonia removal by ion exchange using natural zeolites such as clinoptilolite is well known and there are a number of papers which describe the relevant capacity, equilibrium and column breakthrough characteristics.4–9Clinoptilolite is a silica-rich zeolite, which may have a slightly smaller ion-exchange.

of water receiving it. Thus, many domestic and industrial wastewater treatment plants are required to remove the ammonia before discharge of the treated water. As shown in the nitrification process equations, ammonia is first oxidized to nitrite ions, then the nitrite ions are oxidized to nitrate ions.

Demineralization of water is the removal of essentially all inorganic salts by ion exchange. In this process, strong acid cation resin in the hydrogen form converts dissolved salts into their corresponding acids, and strong base anion resin in the hydroxide form removes these acids.

By Joe Nye. The discharge of ammonia from wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) has become a challenging issue throughout the United States. Nearly half of all states – 24 states plus the District of Columbia -- have adopted new rules modifying how ammonia is measured pursuant to the EPA's water quality criteria, which address total ammonia rather than unionized ammonia and provide more.

[Pacific Northwest Laboratory. Wastewater Technology Fact Sheet Ammonia Stripping DESCRIPTION Ammonia stripping is a simple desorption process used to lower the ammonia content of a wastewater stream.

Some wastewaters contain large amounts of ammonia and/or nitrogen-containing compounds that may readily form ammonia. It is often easier and less expensive to remove nitrogen from. The use of conventional ion exchange resins for removal of ammonia from feed waters can be accomplished with normal cation exchange softeners.

However, softener resins have a very high preference for hardness (Ca2+ and Mg2+) ions over the NH 4 + ion and can “dump” high levels of ammonia before breaking on hardness.

Zeolites, naturally occurring aluminosilicate minerals, are used for the ion-exchange media. Zeolite minerals have been shown to have a high exchange capacity for various ions, including the ammonium ion, and are inexpensive and durable.

The removal of ammonium can be carried out by ion exchange from simulated wastewater. The study looks at the effect of organics upon ammonium ion exchange equilibrium uptake. They found very low ammonia removal of around 3–17%, but albuminoid nitrogen (nitrogen in the form of proteins) removal was appreciable (74–89%), and the addition of coagulant aids reduced the sludge volume to 42%.
