The research delt with the direct use of electric currents and fields to bring about water clarification and purification. Electrophoretic and electrochemical systems appear well adapted for removal of electrically charged pollutants and in addition have the potential of being entirely automated. Numerous design concepts were advanced and tested through the use of laboratory models. These included a parallel plate model which was designed entirely for electrophoretic removal, and porous filter and electrode grid models which incorporated both electrophoretic and electrochemical capabilities.
