Abstract

An innovative spraying system for NH4 +-N removal and recovery was investigated under different pH, temperature, spraying frequency and rate by using spraying system. Results showed that NH4 +-N removal efficiency and mass transfer coefficient (KLa) value in swine wastewater (SW) remarkably increased with increasing of temperature, spraying frequency and rate due to promoting the diffusion of NH3 molecules caused by increasing specific surface of SW molecule, and high shear force and temperature difference between SW and circulating heating tube. Considering the cost and discharge standard, the optimum parameters for NH4 +-N removal from SW using spraying system were alkaline, 0.24 m3 h−1 of continuous spraying, and 45 °C circulating water, and the NH4 +-N decreased from 591.2 to 68.9 mg L−1 (<80 mg L−1) after 8 h treatment, and this value corresponded to 88.35% removal rate. Furthermore, over 85% recovery rate for NH4 +-N could be obtained through absorption of phosphoric acid.
