ABSTRACT

The main purpose of this study was to conduct experimental investigation of water disinfection by using the electrolysis method. Inactivation and killing Coliform in polluted waters are investigated by different voltage, electrodes (Al, St and Cu) and 5 min electrolyze time. The experimental results showed that the removal efficiency depends on the voltage and electrode materials. From the experiments carried out at 10 V and at current intensity of 135 mA, it was found that 5 min period was sufficient for disinfecting water by Stainless steel electrodes.
