B.E 1st Semester RTMNU Notes( Common All Branches) Unit-01 (12 Marks) Water Technology Theories:-04 Marks THEORIES:- Numericals:-08 Marks Ques No.01:- Define Hardness of Water & their types. ( Future for 4 Marks ) Ans:- Hardness of Water:Hardness is defined as the concentrations of calcium and magnesium ions expressed in terms of calcium carbonate. Most commonly used units of hardness are grains per gallon (gpg), parts per million (ppm), and milligrams per liter (mg/L). Hardness of water is defined as soap destroying power of water. Hardness of water is due to the presence of soluble salts i.e. bicarbonates, chlorides and sulphates of calcium and magnesium. Since all these are soluble salts so they remain dissolved in water and are not removed by filtration. Types of Hardness of Water: Hardness of water is of two types: (a) Temporary hardness. (b) Permanent hardness. (a) Temporary Hardness:Temporary hardness is due to the presence of bicarbonates of calcium and magnesium. (i) It can be removed by boiling. On boiling the carbon dioxide is expelled out of water and precipitates of calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate are deposited at the bottom. Boiling is an expensive method of removing hardness of water on a large scale . (ii) Temporary hardness can also be removed by adding lime or calcium hydroxide (Clark’s process) to water. Lime absorbs carbon dioxide and precipitates of calcium carbonate are formed which settle at the bottom and separated by filtration. Ca (HC03)2 + Ca (OH)2 — 2CaC03 + 2H20. (b) Permanent Hardness:Permanent hardness is due to the presence of chlorides and sulphates of calcium and magnesium. It is not removed by boiling. However it can be removed by following methods: (i) When sodium carbonate or soda ash is added to water, it removes both temporary and permanent hardness of water. The sulphate of calcium and magnesium is converted into sodium sulphate. CaSO4 + Na2CO3———>Na2SO4 + CaCo3 (ii) Base Exchange or Permutit Process: This process is used for removal of hardness of water on large scale. Sodium permutit is a loose compound of sodium, aluminium and silica. When hard water is passed through it the calcium and magnesium ions are exchanged with sodium ions thus hardness is removed. Therefore this process is also called “base exchange process”. pg. 4 Engineering Chemistry By Shah Sir
