Lakshmi Keshav, V. Ramesh and M. Raghava Prasad

Abstract

This work presents a very useful software tool to design Clariflocculator, most important secondary unit in both water and wastewater treatment plant WTP. The detailed design steps and calculation for its each component are also presented. Its hydraulic design is complex, tedious and quantitative. An effort is made to simplify the entire manual operations with commonly available MS office tool. This method is being used in WTP in Krishna river bank, Vijayawada, India. This spreadsheet is frugal by design, helps in errorfree calculations and can be used any quantity design. The entire manual operations are simplified and made user-friendly for designers.
