Study Effective Factors on the Electrocoagulation Efficiency of Orange-1 Dye

Abstract

In this research, the efficiency of removing Orange 1 pigment from its aqueoussolutions by electrocoagulation method was studied. Many factors were altered toget the highest efficiency by use two types of electrode aluminum and stainlesssteel electrode with dimensions (5.5-6.5-0.1) cm in an electrolysis cell with dimensions (length 8.5 cm, width 8.5 cm, height 7 cm). Then the effect of them werestudied. After that, effect of dye concentrations was examined. The effect of thesolution with and without electrolyte were studied. In addition, the quantity ofvoltage was adjusted to four different voltages (5, 10, 20, 25), and the impact ofaltering the distance between the electrodes from 2 cm to 3 cm for the two kindsof electrodes was investigated. In this study, a significant variance in results werefound. Also, these findings are clearly consistent with a lot of previous studies.
