Flow Chart Of Wastewater Treatment Process With ETP

Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP)

The effluent Plant (ETP) is essential to purify the wastewater, which comes from different types of manufacturing industries such as textile, ternary, dyes and chemical manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, etc. Different environment-saving organizations are trying to protect the environment from the harmful effects of effluent. Different waste water has different characteristics that pollute the water.

Flow Chart Of Wastewater Treatment Process With ETP

Following is the basic structure of the effluent treatment plant.

Effluent from the different manufacturing industry

Primary Filtration

Cooling and Mixing

Neutralization (by acid or alkali)

Chemical Coagulation

Settling and Separation of Sludge

Pressure Filtration


Now, I would like to give a short description of the sequence of operations in the effluent treatment plant.

Primary Filtration:

It is the first stage of the effluent treatment plant, where effluent comes from the weaving, dyeing, printing, or finishing unit. Here, primary filtration is performed to remove solid waste particles.

Cooling and mixing:

In this stage, different types of effluent are mixed and cooled down with the help of a motor that runs a fan.

Neutralization Tank:

After cooling and mixing, the effluent is transferred to a neutralization tank with the help of a pump. Here, acid or alkali is mixed to neutralize the effluent. A pH meter is placed in the neutralization tank.

Coagulant Bath:

After the neutralization of effluent, effluent is transferred to a coagulant bath. Here, a coagulant is added to the effluent.

Settling Tank:

Here, effluent separates from the water and is found at the lower level of the tank. Effluent is like sludge.

Pressure Filter:

Here, filtration is done under pressure. A certain amount of pressure is created here.

Carbon Filtration:

It is an optional filter process.

Discharge to Drain:

After completion of all the processes, the effluent becomes purified and it becomes safe to drain into the environment.

When treated water is drained into the environment it is checked by the different testing labs. A different standard is maintained during the discharge of the treated effluent.
