COMPARISON OF ALUMINUM AND NICKEL ELECTRODES IN THE ELECTROCOAGULATION PROCESS
Electrocoagulation is a process that involves the reaction of electric current and voltage in treating water and wastewater. The performance of current and voltage parameters is affected by the electrode material. This study focuses on the comparison of the use of metal electrodes, namely aluminum (Al) and nickel (Ni). These two material electrodes were tested through an electrochemical process in water treatment with the modified continuous flow single channel reactor. The type of water used in this test is house food wastewater. The results obtained are that the use of aluminum electrodes is more efficient, effective and conductive than those made of nickel.
