Microscopic Examination of the Activated Sludge Process by Michael H. Gerardi

Book Description

A practical, hands-on guide to using the microscope to analyze activated sludge in wastewater treatment The microscope provides the wastewater treatment plant operator with a special tool for process control and troubleshooting of the activated sludge process. The operator can "read" the organisms and use them as "bioindicators" to determine if operational conditions are acceptable or not acceptable. Written for plant operators and technicians and avoiding unnecessary technical jargon, Microscopic Examination of the Activated Sludge Process explores and explains:* Microscopy, including microscopic measurements and techniques * Directions for preparing and applying microbiological stains and immobilizing agents and techniques for preparing wet mounts and smears * How to identify various types of organisms, including: floc particles and foam; protozoa; rotifers; worms and worm-like organisms; crustaceans; filamentous organisms; and algae and fungi * The collection, evaluation, and presentation of observations This straightforward guide includes figures, tables, worksheets, photomicrographs, and black-and-white drawings of many living, microscopic components of the activated sludge process. It equips plant operators and technicians to monitor, regulate, and troubleshoot the treatment processes and also serves as a valuable resource for research professionals and sanitary engineers in wastewater treatment.

Biology and Troubleshooting of Facultative Lagoons by Michael H. Gerardi Biology and Troubleshooting of Facultative Lagoons, Paperback (November 2011)

For years, operators have been taught that they have very little control over lagoon and fixed film sewage treatment systems. This book gives these personnel a new understanding of how these processes work and does so in a practical manner that emphasizes necessary information for understanding biological conditions at the treatment process.

Troubleshooting the Sequencing Batch Reactor by Michael H. Gerardi Troubleshooting the Sequencing Batch Reactor, Paperback (August 2010)

For years, operators have learned that they have little control over lagoon and fixed film sewage treatment systems.

Wastewater Bacteria by Michael H. Gerardi Wastewater Bacteria, Paperback (May 2006)

This book reviews the significant bacterial groups, the roles they perform in wastewater treatment, and the operational conditions that affect their activity. The roles that are performed by each bacterial group may be beneficial or detrimental to the biological treatment unit depend upon the operational conditions of the unit.

Wastewater Pathogens by Michael H. Gerardi Wastewater Pathogens, Paperback (November 2004)

This manual provides the reader with a review of the significant pathogenic groups of organisms and specific pathogens of concern within wastewater and sludges. Groups reviewed include viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and helminthes or worms.
