White's Handbook of Chlorination and Alternative Disinfectants
By Black & Veatch Corp.
John Wiley & Sons
This fifth edition covers the substantial advances that have been made in the understanding and application of chlorine, hypochlorite, and alternative disinfectants for water and wastewater treatment in the 10 years since the fourth edition was published.
The book balances theory with practice. It covers important topics such as advances in the use of UV and ozone as disinfectants; alternative disinfectants such as chlorine dioxide, iodine, and bromine-related products; advanced oxidation processes for drinking water and wastewater; new developments and information for the production and handling of chlorine; and the latest regulations governing the use of different disinfectants.
For each disinfectant, the book explains its chemistry, effectiveness, dosing, equipment, system design requirements, and more.
