Abstract

A review of struvite nucleation studies is given. Low supersaturation induction time experiments are presented. A thermodynamic solver was developed in Engineering Equation Solver (EES) which was validated against PHREEQc. This solver allowed meaningful comparisons to be made by processing the raw data under consistent thermodynamic conditions. Differences in the results that still remained are attributed to hydrodynamic variations. An image capture and analysis experimental method proved successful for the low supersaturation induction time experiments. Previous studies were unable to predict induction times at low supersaturation.
