The effect of flocculation time, flocculant dosage, pollutant concentration, mixing intensity and tank size on flocculation performance was experimentally studied in a mechanically agitated vessel. The macroscopic approach was applied for fl occulation modelling. The simple semi-empirical generalized correlation for flocculation kinetics proposed by Šulc (2003a) and the simple semi-empirical generalized correlation quantifying the effect of flocculation time and flocculant dosage on fl occulation proposed by Šulc, Ditl (2007) were used for data treatment.
