TOPIC 2-COAGULATION AND CHEMICAL FLASH MIX
SP2C - FLASH MIX DESIGN
Design a chemical flash mix facility given the following design criteria:
Total plant design capacity = 45,000 m³/hr
Two flash mix basins, each ½ plant capacity
A turbine mixer will be used, but do not design the mixer speed or impeller etc.
G = 1000 sec-1, minimum
Hydraulic Retention Time = 8 seconds
Width = Depth of water = Length, i.e., a "cube"
Water Temperature = 10°C
Power transfer efficiency of mixer to water = 0.85
a) Determine the volume of each flash mix basin, m³ and the dimensions, nearest 0.1 m
b) Determine the power, kW, which must be introduced into the water, i.e., without transfer
c) Determine the mixer power requirement, KW
d) If one of the flash mixers had to be taken out of service because of mechanical failure and
of the plant design capacity must go through one basin, determine the hydraulic retention
time and the G value. Any comment?
e) Considering the coagulation process is charge neutralization which occurs in milliseconds,
will the reduction in HRT in part d) be problematic?
