Digestion of Sludge – Optimizing Digestion in Wastewater Treatment

Digestion of Sludge – Optimizing Digestion in Wastewater Treatment

Sludge Digestion Tanks

A sludge digestion tank is an R.C.C. tank of cylindrical shape with a hopper bottom and is covered with a fixed or floating type of roof. The latter makes the digestion of sludge much more effective. The weight of the cover is supported by sludge, and the liquid forced between the tank wall and the side of the cover provides a good seal. The raw sludge is pumped into the tank where it is seeded with digested sludge.

On undergoing anaerobic digestion, gases of decomposition (chiefly Ch4 , CO2) are given out by the anaerobic digester. Sludge gas rises out of the digesting sludge. It moves along the ceiling of the cover and collects in the gas dome. The cover can float on the surface of the sludge between the landing brackets and the overflow pipe. Rollers around the circumference of the cover keep it from binding against the tank wall.

The digested sludge, which settles down to the bottom of the tank is removed under hydrostatic pressure periodically, say, once a week. To maintain optimum temperature, the tank is generally provided with heating coils through which hot water is circulated.

The supernatant liquor i.e., the part of the tank content lying between the scum and the sludge is withdrawn at the optimum level through a number of withdrawal points located at different elevations of the tank. As it is high in BOD and suspended matter contents, it is sent back to the incoming raw sewage for undergoing re-treatment. During the digestion of sludge, the scum formed at the surface gets broken up by the recirculating flow or through mechanical rackers called scum-breakers.

The amount of sludge gas produced during digestion of sludge varies from 0.014 to 0.028 m3 per capita with 0.017 m3 being quite common. The gas produced contains 65 per cent of methane with a calorific value 5400 — 5850 kcal. m3, 30 per cent of carbon dioxide and balance 5 per cent of nitrogen and other inert gases. It resembles natural gas and may be used as a fuel for cooking. Principal uses however, are for driving gas engines, and for heating sludge to promote quick digestion of sludge.

High Blood Pressure Causes

High Blood Pressure Causes

According to the American Heart Association’s website one in three adults has high blood pressure but only 78.7 percent of them were aware of their condition.

The website went on to point out that even though many times the cause of hypertension isn’t known, it is easily detected and usually controllable. Note that they said easily detectable, that is if you go to a doctor or health clinic and have your blood pressure checked.

You could be one of the 73.6 million people in the United States age 20 and older that have high blood pressure. One of the most alarming and dangerous things about hypertension, is that initially there are often few or no symptoms. In fact, it can be difficult, if not impossible to know that you have it unless you make regular routine visits to your doctor. If you can’t make it to your doctor go to the health clinic in your neighborhood.

These visits are extremely important, because hypertension can lead to all types of very serious and life threatening complications. It can worsen diabetes sometimes, but even more commonly, can put you at risk of heart disease or stroke. Although I have heard conflicting reports, I believe that my father was in denial about his high blood pressure for years before it finally caught up to him, causing him a severe stroke. His stoke nearly crippled him and caused him to live in pain for the last ten years of his life. This is why you need to get your medical checkup. Because, even though it is dangerous, the common causes of hypertension are easily treated.

One of the most common causes is excessive salt consumption. Some people have high sensitivity to sodium (salt), and their blood pressure goes up when they use salt. When these people reduce their sodium intake it goes down. According to many experts, taking in too much salt is common among Americans. It is estimated that we consume 10 to 15 times more salt than we need.

Diets of fast and processed foods contain particularly high amounts of sodium. To reduce your sodium intake levels read labels carefully to find out how much sodium is contained in food items and then avoid those with high sodium levels. Although this is only one of the high blood pressure causes for certain salt sensitive people, it can’t hurt to decrease your salt consumption, and may help prevent your risk of heart attack.

Even more common among causes of hypertension is obesity. Obesity is defined as having a body mass index (BMI) greater than 30 kg/m2. It is very closely related to high blood pressure. Obesity causes hypertension because it puts a strain on your circulatory system. This means that your heart has to work harder to pump blood, resulting in higher pressure in your veins and arteries.

Medical professionals strongly recommend that all obese people with high blood pressure lose weight until they are within 15% of their healthy body weight. This leads to the next cause, the lack of exercise. When you don’t do cardiovascular exercise your heart atrophies. This means that it needs to pump harder to circulate your blood. Using exercise to lose weight, you can treat both of these causes at once.

Be careful what drugs you put in your body. Certain drugs, such as amphetamines (stimulants), diet pills, and some pills used for cold and allergy symptoms, tend to raise blood pressure. Also, people that drink too much alcohol have a tendency to develop hypertension. For those that are sensitive to alcohol, drinking more than one to two drinks of alcohol per day tends to raise their blood pressure.

Some causes are not so easily treatable. For example, it appears that there is a genetic component, that make some people simply more prone. Along with this, there is a process called arteriosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, which can occur with age.

Diabetes, which can be treated through diet and exercise, but not necessarily completely eliminated, is another one of the causes which can’t completely be improved through conscientious treatment.

So the facts remain that you can reduce your chance of high blood pressure by getting your checkup, exercising, and eating right. Start today. You owe it to yourself and your loved ones.

Allergy Asthma Treatment

Allergy Asthma Treatment

Allergy asthma is that type of asthma which is primarily triggered by an allergy or any other external element which causes an allergic reaction the result of which is an asthma attack. The truth is that asthma is not really categorized in to various categories but it just seems appropriate to set aside the type of asthma which is triggered by an allergy which can either be airborne allergens or by food.

But of course sacrificing your medication just to save is not an option. We all know that asthma when set aside can worsen and wreak havoc later on. In order to save while taking care of your condition you can take a different route, this is through alternatives and home remedies. One way to really save would be to prevent your attacks from happening in the first place.

Avoid your asthma triggers. Once you know what your trigger is, avoiding exposure to this specific trigger is part of the asthma treatment program. For better asthma control, make sure that you avoid exposure to the allergy asthma trigger. When you avoid exposure to the trigger, you are already reducing the incidence of an attack. For example, if animal dander is your trigger, you must stay away from animals especially those who shed a lot.

To average people like us, it may be quite perplexing to think how allergic reactions can lead to allergy asthma attacks. However, experts claim that the allergic response usually affects the nose and the lining of the passage way in the same way as asthma does. When you are exposed to allergens, the antibodies in your blood usually attack these allergens.

Asthma and severe allergies are often treated with steroids in the form of inhalers or nose sprays, and are sometimes even taken internally in serious cases. Asthma sufferers may also have an aversion to poor air quality. Asthma is something that in many people doesn’t completely go away. Asthma Treatment The Importance an Asthma Treatment Program When you first start dealing with asthma symptoms, you will quickly figure out there are specific triggers that bring on an episode.

Although the short term treatment for allergic asthma can be similar to that used for common asthma, with the use of corticosteroids and bronchodilators, or even the other alternative medicines like Siddha home, it is necessary to acknowledge the cause of the symptoms and treat the allergy asthma with suitable medication such as anti-inflammatory and anti-histaminic drugs.

Asthma allergy is not distinct to certain types of people. Anyone of any age, race, weight, height or gender is at risk of acquiring the disease. People who are involved in industries that deal with heavy emissions are at a higher risk of developing asthma.

Asthma triggers can be a variety of things – cold air, tobacco smoke, dogs or cats, exercise, fumes from paint, dust, and even laughing. When a person that suffers from asthma is anxious they are more likely to have an attack. Some may suffer an asthma attack if they take aspirin or other types of pain medication. The list is long. What’s known for certain is that asthma and allergy asthma are growing at an alarming rate.

Anaphylaxis is the most serious allergy asthma – this is a reaction that can kill so suddenly those surrounding don’t realize what is occurring until it is too late. Anaphylaxis affects around 2% of the population and what happens is when the allergy strike the air ways are restricted and the person cannot breath thus suffocating.

Natural treatment is safe and result oriented; it can control asthma to great extend without any side effects. The health condition of the lungs, immune system, nervous system and adrenal system are the vital areas for the treatment of asthma through natural products.

Treating Influenza With Tamiflu And Relenza

Treating Influenza With Tamiflu And Relenza
Influenza, also known as flu, is a viral infection caused by a virus of the RNA family. There are 3 virus-types of flu type ‘A’, type ‘B’ and type ‘C’. The type ‘A’ virus is the most deadly and pandemic. Subtypes of influenza ‘A’ are H1N1, H1N2 and H3N2, out of which the H1N1 variety is medically tested to be the most dangerous to humans. The classification is made on the basis of 2 surface proteins hemagglutinin (H) and neuramidase (N). So H1N1, for instance, means the virus contains hemagglutinin variation 1 and neuramidase variation 1.

Type ‘B’ and type ‘C’ variants are not so dangerous and they do not contain viruses that have antigenic features. So humans are usually able grow immune to these two types very early.

Treating influenza

Treatment of flu is very difficult because of the nature of the flu virus. The highly infectious flu viruses are mutable. So they keep changing genetically, giving very little time for drugs to act quickly and effectively. Once infected, the viruses multiplies in living cells via viral binding. The flu virus travels through air and also through body contact. The World Health Organisation has approved Tamiflu as a preventive and therapeutic medicine for the treatment of influenza. Relenza is another medicine which is applied for treating flu. But Relenza is contraindicated for people who have asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).


Tamiflu, manufactured by Roche Pharmaceuticals, is an effective prescription medicine for prevention and treatment of influenza. It has oseltamivir as its active ingredient. The medicine has been proven effective for treating human flu, bird flu and swine flu. Available in doses of 75mg, the drug prevents flu by attacking the base of the flu virus, preventing it from multiplying. If applied for flu prevention, Tamiflu oseltamivir kills the virus with the help of body proteins. The medicine should be taken as follows:

within 48 hours from the outbreak of symptoms
the entire course of treatment must be completed
for treatment, the recommended dose is 75mg capsules twice a day for 5 days
for prevention, the recommended dose is a capsule daily for minimum of 10 days

If you take the medicine within 48 hours from noticing the first symptoms, you’re likely to get relief from the flu symptoms.


Relenza is a powerful antiviral medicine intended for providing relief from the symptoms of influenza. It should work effectively for swine flu, bird flu and common flu. The medicine comes in a powdery form, to be inhaled twice every day for five days or once every day day for 28 days. The treatment should start either as soon as or no later than two days from the symptoms appear.

You should not take Relenza if you are allergic to Zanamivir or any of the active ingredients the medicine contains. Stop taking the medicine if you gasp for breath and waste no time in calling your doctor.

Are the Best Skin Care Products Always Dermatology Tested – Should They Be?

Are the Best Skin Care Products Always Dermatology Tested – Should They Be?

Searching for the best skin care products, for whatever your skin condition is, can be a real challenge. The range and scope of products on the market today is staggering.

Many consumers have tried to narrow their search by looking only at products labeled Dermatology Tested or Dermatology Approved.

People with sensitive or acne prone skin may feel these labels give added assurance, that what they are buying has passed  special testing and therefore, the product is less likely to cause skin reactions and will deliver on what its claims.

Brace yourself, because according to a published report by the FDA, manufacturers are not required to perform any tests or provide supporting evidence to demonstrate that products labeled “dermatologist-tested” were actually tested by a doctor and produced fewer allergic reactions than other products.

 I don’t know about you, but that’s not very reassuring. But at least, you now know such labels are not really a guarantee of testing or anything else, and therefore, decreases the preceived value of such labels, as aids to  finding the safest, most effective products.

You do, however, need some reasonable way to measure the quality and effectiveness of products before you make a purchase.

If your serious about improving the condition of your skin, this quick read will provide you with the fundamentals needed to evaluate, compare and determine for yourself which skincare products are the most effective.

What’s In Your Skincare Products?

Quality Ingredients in the right amounts is the secret formula of the best skin care products. That may sound a bit too simple, but  it’s the first area you want to pay close attention to.

The truth about most skincare products … even the top brands, is that the claims made are based on just a few active ingredients in the product.

When you analyze these products, in most cases the vital active ingredients are in surprisingly low concentrations, in fact, so low that their effectiveness is limited. Sad to say most products are made up of synthetic waxes and similar fillers.

Think about it like this, if you buy a high performance sports car, the manufactures recommends you use a premium grade of gas. Why? Because the car will perform at its best when the highest quality gas is used. Sure the owner could use a lower grade of gas and the car would run, but very poorly.

The only way to ensure your products have quality ingredients, is to learn what they are. Most people are familiar with the popular names like Vitamin E and Aloe. But your list should certainly be longer than this.

I found a very informative resource that has a well researched list of them, you’ll find it at bottom of this page.

Here is a sample of  what you will find:

* Grapeseed Oil – is a powerful antioxidant and also creates an invisible film on your skin, to keep moisture in.

* Babassu – is a light, natural wax, which softens and soothes your skin (giving it a nice velvet like feel) and creates an invisible barrier to retain moisture and keep out dirt and grime. It gently moisturizes the skin without making it oily.

No matter what your skin type or skin condition, you can have healthier looking skin with a youthful glow by using skin care products with natural ingredients.  Remember these product have a measurable rate of success not due to a rubber stamp, but quality ingredients that are highly effective.

Product Safety – Avoiding Dangerous Chemicals

The demand for all natural skin care products is on the rise, due in part to the wide range of adverse health effects caused – from skin irritation to cancer- by many of the chemicals in personal care products.

If possible, only purchase all natural products that exclude harmful chemicals like the ones shown below:



As you can see choosing the best skin care products requires more than a mere recommendation or suggestive label. Informed consumers know the value of being educated about the products they use on their skin.

So don’t stop here get the all the facts (with the brief  video below) about products with ingredients that are highly effective and safe enough to eat.

As an all natural product specialist and skincare researcher, Ann Skinner has done extensive research that can save you time and money.

Skin Cancer?s Causes

Skin Cancer?s Causes

There are many causes form skin cancer which is a malignant growth on base. Basal cell cancer, squamous cell cancer, and melanoma are the most common skin cancers.

The sunlight is a main cause of skin cancer. Besides the sunlight, the ultraviolet rays are very serious to skin, especially from 10am to 4pm. The ultraviolet rays which symbols for the sun’s beams is electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength shorter than that of visible light, but longer than x-rays which can negatively impact on the skin. The UV spectrum has many other effects on human health in the beneficial and damaging aspect.

Squamous cell carcinoma is due to exposure and contact with some types of minerals like hydrocarbons in soot, tar and oils.

Several types of chemicals which are overexposed like arsenic can go to the malady. In fact, farmers, miners and sheep shearers are those who have high degree of exposure to arsenic.

Skin cancer is also from tanning booths. For many people, it is common to forget this disease’s adverse effect.

Immunosuppression helps your body safe by protecting itself from harmful foreign matter through the immune system. If you infect with HIV, your immune system will become weak down step by step. Your body at that time is difficult to fight with disease.

Sun-beds cause the most damaging kind of cancer of the skin which is malignant melanoma.

Malignant melanoma’s cause is from sun-beds. This is one of the most damaging kind of skin cancer.

Some researches say that blacks or darker skinned people are not as susceptible as white people. Because black people’s skin consists of very high levels of melanin which keeps them far away from the sun’s harmful rays.

The common age is easy to have cancer is from 20- 39. According to estimation, nearly 85% of cancer cases are due to the sun. Therefore, you should use cream against the sunlight or use clothing, hat, glass under the sun. It will reduce the risk of skin cancer for you.

Dermatology in Kenya: The Advances of Medical Tourism

Dermatology in Kenya: The Advances of Medical Tourism

The internet is improving healthcare to the far reaches of the world, including Nairobi, Kenya. It has become the key to connecting doctors and patients throughout the world.

Kenya is becoming an increasingly popular dermatology destination thanks to skilled doctors like Pranav Mahendra Pancholi. His clinic, First Laser Skin Centre, located in the capital city of Nairobi, offers an array of advanced skin care treatments for both light and dark skin, ranging from laser removal treatments to Botox to facial contouring.

Dr. Pranav Mahendra Pancholi commits his Harvard Medical School education to improving dermatology in Kenya. While he specializes in cosmetic dermatology and skin cancer surgery, Dr. Pancholi most commonly sees patients needing treatment for acne, eczema, psoriasis, warts and vitiligo, demonstrating the demand for basic, as well as advanced dermatology treatments in Kenya.

Kenya’s magnificent scenery, diverse wildlife and warm year-round temperatures make it a leading travel destination today. What many Westerners don’t know is that with the advance of top quality dermatology care, Nairobi, Kenya has also become a key destination for medical tourism.

“The cosmetic boom has now hit Nairobi, with everyone wanting to enhance their looks. Botox, chemical peels, fillers, dermabrasion as just some of the options available,” Dr. Pancholi states.

Dr. Pancholi receives patients from all over Africa as well as from parts of Europe. In addition to his patients living in Africa, “dark skinned patients who live in Europe also make it a habit of passing by once a year for a regular check up as they find it hard to find a dermatologist greatly experienced in dark skin in Europe,” he explains. In addition, his clinics have “also become a hub for the local Expat community.”

With a country of 31 million people, Kenya is home to a large population. Kenya is about the same size as France, though 4,023 miles south. English as well as Kiswahili and local tribal dialects are the commonly spoken languages. As a result, there are a number of English speaking doctors available. The geography of Kenya could be considered a microcosm of Africa; the country includes the Pacific coast, low coastal plains, and high plateau and mountain regions. Due to its close proximity with the equator, Kenya’s tropical climate is hot and humid. Such a climate can be breeding grounds for common skin problems such as eczema and skin cancer. As a result, there is a high need for quality dermatology in Kenya.

By spreading awareness and advertisements, the internet helps to bridge the gap between Nairobi, Kenya, and the Western world. Websites foster doctor/patient relationships while empowering patients with the ability to research, compare, and learn more about doctors on a worldwide scale. With the dominance of web communication, doctors are becoming more available to patients through online discussion panels, forums and even online e-consultations.

Dr. Pancholi is just one example of how doctors utilize the internet to respond quickly and effectively to individual patient concerns.

First Laser Skin Centre works with several different insurance companies to make dermatology in Kenya an affordable solution.

Swine Flu

Swine Flu


H1N1 flu, also called swine flu, is a respiratory disease of pigs that has now spread to humans.

“Swine” refers to animals such as pigs, hogs, and boars.

“Flu” is an abbreviation of influenza.

“H1N1” is the name of the virus that has spread to humans

People do not normally get swine flu viruses, but human infections can and do happen. Beginning in late march 2009, cases of humans infected with the H1N1flu virus have been reported in the USA and internationally.

This health education program explains What the H1N1 FLU IS.

It discusses its symptoms, when to seek medical help, and its treatment options. It also provides important prevention tips.


Viruses are very small living particles. This section reviews information about viruses that will help you understand the H1N1 flu virus.

H1N1 Flu Infections:

Influenza viruses happen naturally among pigs, hogs, and boars. Swine influenza is very contagious among swine. It can make some domesticated pigs very sick.

It is unusual for humans to catch swine flu viruses, but occasional cases happen, Usually in people who have contact with infected pigs. Swine flu viruses have also been reported to spread from person to person in the past, but previous episodes of

Transmissions were very limited.

The recent infections are caused by a new strain of swine flu virus Known as Type A,, Subtype H1N1. That is why this flu is called influenza A H1N1, or simply H1N1 flu . This new strain seems to be progressing rapidly and humans have not yet had a chance to develop antibodies or protection against it.

Flu viruses are spread mainly from person to person when infected people cough or sneeze. Sometimes people may become infected by touching something with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose.

You cannot get the H1N1 flu from eating cooked pork. Infected people may be able to infect others beginning one day before symptoms develop and up to seven or more days after becoming sick. Children, especially younger children, might be contagious for longer periods.


The most common symptoms of H1N1 influenza in humans are similar to typical human flu and include:
– Fever
– Cough
– Sore throat
– Body aches
– Chills
– Fatigue

Some people have reported diarrhea and vomiting associated with H1N1 flu.

People who have chronic conditions such as asthma, diabetes, congestive heart failure, etc. many notice a worsening of their medical conditions.

Emergency Signs:

If you have severe symptoms, your doctor can test if flu symptoms are caused by H1N1 flu.

This section discusses when you or your child should seek medical help. You should watch for flu-like signs. These signs are fever; body aches runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Signs of the flue are often mild and do not require medical evaluation in the clinic. When the symptoms are mild, it is important to keep yourself hydrated, get plenty of rest, and practice good hand hygiene. You should seek medical care if your or your child develops any of the “emergency warnings signs”. Some of the “emergency warning signs” that require urgent medical attention are listed next.

In children, some emergency warning signs include:

-Fast breathing or trouble breathing
– Bluish skin color
-Not drinking enough fluids
– High or prolonged fever.

You should also seek immediate medical attention if you notice changes in your child’s mental status, such as:

– Not waking up
– Not interacting
– Extreme irritability and no wanting to be held

In adults, some emergency warning signs that need urgent medical attention include:

-Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
-Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen
-Sudden dizziness
-Near-fainting or fainting
-Server or persistent vomiting
-High or prolonged fever.

If you or your child have flu-like symptoms that get better but then come back with a fever and a worse cough, seek medical attention as soon as possible.

When you arrive, tell the receptionist or nurse about your symptoms. You may be asked to wear a mask and sit in a separate area to protect others from getting sick.


Which treatment is appropriate for you is based on the severity of your illness and your doctor may consult with an infectious disease specialist to determine the best treatment.

Antiviral drug approved for human influenza viruses should work in treating H1N1 influenza infection in humans. However, there are no known medications that treat H1N1 influenza infection specifically.

Antiviral drugs are prescriptions medications that can help the flu by keeping flu viruses from reproducing in your body. These include pills, liquids, or inhalers.

Antiviral medications are currently recommended only for those patients with moderate or severe illness for H1N1 flu. Most people get better without antiviral medicines.

Antiviral medications must be taken within 48 hours after symptoms appear. They may diminish your symptoms, but they may not make your symptoms go away entirely.

Other flu treatments that should work for H1N1 flu include rest, medications to bring down a high fever, and drinking plenty of water.

If complications happen and you become very sick, hospitalization may be needed.

Hospitalized patients may be given oxygen or use a respirator.

Children or teenagers with the flu should get plenty of rest and drink lots of liquids. The medicines that they take to relieve their symptoms should not contain aspirin. Never give aspirin to children or Teenagers who have fu-like symptoms, especially a fever, without first speaking to your healthcare provider. Giving aspirin to children and teenagers who have influenza can cause rare but serious illness called Reye syndrome.

Healthy Eating for Healthy Skin

Healthy Eating for Healthy Skin

There is an old saying that you are what you eat, and the truthfulness of this saying may go a little bit deeper than what you even realize. The things that we put in our body in the form of food is going to have a direct impact on exactly what our body is able to do for us. If we tend to eat healthy things, our body is going to be more balanced and able to overcome a lot of the problems that it has to face on a daily basis. If we eat unhealthy things, our body is going to rebel against us and we will have a number of different problems, skin problems being one of them.

Skin problems and psoriasis are rather common, but that does not necessarily mean that they are something we need to put up with. If you are currently dealing with a severe problem was psoriasis, you probably already understand that there is no medical cure for the disease. In order for you to overcome it, you need to treat it naturally and you need to make sure that you are avoiding any triggers that may cause the psoriasis to come to the surface. The food that you eat can certainly be one of those triggers.

The difficult part about eating a healthy diet is the fact that it can be quite a shock to the system. One of the best things that you can possibly do, therefore, is to make sure that you are reducing the amount of bad foods that you are taking in by pushing them out of your diet, not by forcibly removing them. Begin adding healthy foods into your diet, and you will soon find that your overall way of eating is much healthier as a result.

This skin is really an amazing organ and it is one of the ways that the body gets rid of toxins effectively. It does this through perspiring and through the process of skin removal that is natural. Whenever the body has to remove too many toxins, it can cause a condition which will make the skin removal process happened so quickly that psoriasis results. Make sure that you are keeping yourself as healthy as possible through the foods that you eat, and you will notice far fewer unhealthy skin conditions as a result.

Hopefully this article has helped you and you apply it.
