  • IntroductionElectrocoagulation electro meaning to apply an electrical charge to water and coagulation is the process by which suspended matter forms an agglomeration. It works primarily by reduction of the net surface charge to a point where colloidal particles, originally stabilized by electrostatic repulsion in solution, can approach close enough for van der wall forces to hold them together and allow aggregation.


  • Process and BenefitsEC requires simple equipment and is easy to operate with sufficient operational latitude to handle most problems encountered on running. Wastewater treated by EC gives palatable, clear, colourless and odourless water.Sludge formed by EC tends to be readily settable and easy to de-water.The EC process has the advantage of removing the smallest colloidal particles, because the applied electric field neutralises any residual charge, thereby facilitating the coagulation.


  • The EC process generally avoids excessive use of chemicals and so there is reduced requirement to neutralize excess chemicals and less possibility of secondary pollution caused by chemical substances added at high concentration as when chemical coagulation of wastewater is used.The electrolytic processes in the EC cell are controlled electrically and with no moving parts, thus requiring less maintenance.

    AuthorObjectiveAbstract / ResultsR. Mahajan, V. Khandegar, Anil K. Saroha(2013)Treatment of hospital operation theatre effluent by electrocoagulationRemoval efficiency determined by the reduction in chemical oxygen demand (COD) of the effluent. The effect of operational parameters on the COD removal efficiency was investigated.

  • ResultsElectrocoagulation depends on a number of parameters EC time: Increase in EC time provide better results and a thick floc. After sufficient time the separation downs to nearly zero.Current density: Increase in current density provides better results faster. After long residence time, they nearly converge to the same results. Conductivity: It increases the electrochemical activity in the system, and hence increase in the separation process and gas formation.


  • Initial pH: If the pH is away from the neutral (7), increase in foam and sediments is observed.Inter-electrode distance: Increase in the distance increases the EC efficiency. As the distance provides greater probabilities to generate global flocks.In-flow rates, material of the electrodes, and impurity concentrations also affect the process.


  • Effects of AC vs DCIn practice, direct current (DC) is used in an electrocoagulation processes. In this case, an impermeable oxide layer may form on the cathode as well as corrosion formation on the anode due to oxidation. This prevents the effective current transfer between the anode and cathode, so the efficiency of electrocoagulation processes declines. These disadvantages of DC have been diminished by adopting alternating current (AC) in electrocoagulation processes.**

  • Sacrificial ElectrodesSacrificial Anodes are highly active metals that are used to prevent a less active material surface from corroding. Sacrificial Anodes are created from a metal alloy with a more negative electrochemical potential than the other metal it will be used to protect. The sacrificial anode will be consumed in place of the metal it is protecting, which is why it is referred to as a "sacrificial" anode.**
