36 Classification of signs according to use – (1) Danger signs. The DANGER header is used when there is a hazardous situation which has a high probability of death or severe injury. It should not be considered for property damage unless personal injury risk is present. 24 August 201236KLE College of Pharmacy, Nipani

37 2) Caution signs. (i) The CAUTION header is used to indicate a hazardous situation which may result in minor or moderate injury. However, Caution should not be used when there is a possibility of death or serious injury. 24 August 201237KLE College of Pharmacy, Nipani

38 (3) Safety instruction signs General Safety Signs (SAFETY FIRST, BE CAREFUL, THINK) should indicate general instructions relative to safe work practices, reminders of proper safety procedures, and the location of safety equipment. 24 August 201238KLE College of Pharmacy, Nipani

39 (4) Biological hazard signs. The biological hazard warning shall be used to signify the actual or potential presence of a biohazard and to identify equipment, containers, rooms, materials, experimental animals, or combinations thereof, which contain, or are contaminated with, viable hazardous agents. 24 August 201239KLE College of Pharmacy, Nipani

51 Industrial effluent testing and treatment Effluent is an outflowing of water from a natural body of water, or from a man-made structure. Water pollution or waste water discharge from the industrial facilities. REASON OF TESTING To find out -Pollution load -Presence of toxic ingredients -Color, turbidity, odour and quality of water -pH and acidity / alkalinity -Suspended solids and dissolved solids -Phenolic compounds and oily materials 24 August 201251KLE College of Pharmacy, Nipani

52 GUIDELINES FOR TESTING EFFLUENTS Samples may be collected at specific intervals and finally can be mixed before analysis. Containers made up of glass, polythene or any suitable plastic material may be used. Samples may also be refrigerated to avoid loss of volatile matter Samples could be preserved after adjusting the pH O 2, CO 2, CO may be estimated 24 August 201252KLE College of Pharmacy, Nipani

60 Waste Water Treatment  Waste Water Pretreatment Attempted to render the effluent suitable for further treatment Equalization Concentrated waste is diluted if necessary -by mechanical mixing -by aeration mixing Neutralization Removal of Grease and Oils 24 August 201260KLE College of Pharmacy, Nipani

61 Primary Treatment of Waste Water Removal of large floating or suspended particle by physical and chemical treatment  Screening Large particles are removed Coarse screen of metal bars or heavy wires spaced 25-50 mm apart Finer materials are separated by screening through 0.8-6 mm meshes  Grit Chambers Removal of particles by centrifugal action and friction against tank walls Diffused air used for mixing pattern 24 August 201261KLE College of Pharmacy, Nipani

62 It is used To prevent any damage to equipment To avoid settling in pipe bends 24 August 201262KLE College of Pharmacy, Nipani Primary Treatment of Waste Water

63  Chemical Reaction Involves agglomeration of tiny particles into large particles  Flocculation -by mechanical stirring and by chemical flocculants  Precipitation -Large amount of suspended solid formed  Coagulation -Formation of large and quick settling flocs by a) Reduction of charges and repulsive force b) Adsorption on long chain molecular structure 24 August 201263KLE College of Pharmacy, Nipani Primary Treatment of Waste Water

64 Secondary Treatment of Waste Water It is a biological process C, H, and O sources are available Nitrogen should be 5% of the BOD Phosphorus should be 20% of mass of nitrogen Environmental conditions are provided Advantages Continuous waste treatment is favored Low cost system Disadvantages Prior prediction of biological degradability is not possible Solubility limits biodegradability 24 August 201264KLE College of Pharmacy, Nipani

65  Activated Sludge Process Microbial Floc is suspended in tank Air is continuously supplied Biological degradation of waste into CO 2 and H 2 O Bacterial flora grows and remains suspended in the form of floc called as “activated sludge” 20% of sludge is recycled 6 to 24 hours aeration is required 24 August 201265KLE College of Pharmacy, Nipani Secondary Treatment of Waste Water

67 Activated Sludge Process 24 August 201267KLE College of Pharmacy, Nipani

68 Microorganisms are attached to fixed bed It acts as a filter Bed is maintained at height of 2.5 meter Gelatinous film is formed Effluent is sprayed over the surface Slots at the bottom for air inlet Aerobic metabolism occur on the surface Anaerobic metabolism occur at the bottom 24 August 201268KLE College of Pharmacy, Nipani Trickling filtration process

69 Trickling Filtration Process 24 August 201269KLE College of Pharmacy, Nipani

70 Advantages Produce effluent of consistent quality Aerobic and anaerobic digestion are achieved More economical Sludge can be removed quickly Disadvantage Cost for ventilation duct for air supply is high Efficiency decreases in the winter 24 August 201270KLE College of Pharmacy, Nipani Trickling Filtration Process

71  Oxidation Ponds Depth should be 1 to 2 meters. Bottom and sides are lined with polyethylene, cement. Oxygen released by algae, carbon dioxide generate from biodegradative Aerobic oxidation producing carbon dioxide and water. Advantage: Operation is simple and economical. Disadvantages: Required disinfections Use for wastes having low BOD. 24 August 201271KLE College of Pharmacy, Nipani Secondary Treatment of Waste Water

72 Tertiary Treatment Of Waste Water Meant for polishing the effluents. Bacteria are removed by keeping in maturation ponds. Chlorinated, if still contain bacteria. Methods are more expensive than biological treatment.  Coagulation : Reaction take place upon addition of the coagulants. -Metal salts -Organic Polymers In water, form insoluble product with impurities. 24 August 201272KLE College of Pharmacy, Nipani

73  Coprecipitation : Ions in solution phase precipitate with the carrier molecule by -Adsorption Process -Inclusion Process  Filtration Most common type in addition to disinfection. Practiced prior to the chlorination. Should be done after coagulation. May be made up of sand, activated charcoal. 24 August 201273KLE College of Pharmacy, Nipani Tertiary Treatment Of Waste Water
