Ammonia removals of up to 90% from lime clarified filtered wastewater were obtained in a five stage counter current cross flow stripping tower. Decreases in operating temperatures from 78F to 43F during the cold weather reduced the stripping efficiency by 30% and caused icing in the tower. The variation of stripping efficiency was also studied as a function of the inlet pH of the water and the ratio of the air to liquid rate. The rate of calcium carbonate scaling on the tower was determined for wastewater pH's of 11.5 and 10.5. The heights of transfer units (HTU) were estimated by using a mathematical model and a computer iterative technique. (Modified author abstract)
