Flow Measurement and Raw Sewage Characteristic Determination in Kashan Textile Factories

M.B. Miranzadeh

Abstract:
The Kashan is an industrial city which have many textile factories. At present, Raw industrial sewage used for agriculture in Kashan which can cause environmental pollution and adversely effects human health. In this study for flow measurement a rectangular weir is used. The results shows that the average flow of Kashan Textile Sewage (KTS) were 107.5 cubic meters per hour. Composite samples were obtained from raw sewage (Seven samples at different time during the day) for heavy metal and physicochemical analysis. The average concentration of BOD5, COD, TSS and colour were 109, 583, 169 and 108 mg L-1 true colour unit, respectively. The average concentration of heavy metal in raw sewage were less than Iranian reuse standard, except for cobalt. These sewage has the BOD to COD ratio, as far as less than 0.5 that indicates these sewage is not biotreatable and for treatment require chemical process.
