Example text

SUMMARY In Germany and other West-European countries the results of oxygen transfer tests in the different systems have hitherto been mostly converted to reference temperatures according to Pasveer. With regard to the origin of these correction figures, however, they should be applied only to compressed-air systems and aerators with especially low turbulence. As indicated by operational results the application in systems with high micro turbulence (impellers, turbines, cylinders) is not correct.

The efficiency of an aeration process can be very conveniently expressed as a deficit ratio. For different types of processes, the deficit ratios can be computed by setting - ^ - = R and integrating. g. natural reaeration in rivers), the deficit ratio becomes D (X) _ [C s - C (X)1 _ D(D) [Cs-C(O)] e x_ u * Professor of Environmental Engineering, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee. , Nashville, Tennessee.

Verl. , Leipzig, 1941. Discussion by A. Goubet, France. Water reuse is a relatively new subject, on which most work has been done in the last 10 years. It is true that the world consumption of electricity has doubled in 10 years, that waste heat from central generating stations has kept pace with power generation and that the prospect of massive nuclear power stations is likely to lead to a further doubling of power production in the next decade.
