In the direct current mode (DC), widely used in electroflocculation (EC), the formation of an impermeable oxide layer on the cathode causes the declining of the efficiency of this process. This disadvantage has been reduced by adopting alternating current (AC). In this study, the effects of AC and DC on operational parameters such as the removal of oils and… CONTINUE READING
