What is it about?
Hydrodynamic cavitation phenomena was utilized efficiently for industrial wastewater treatment. Vortex diode was used as cavitating device that employ rotational (swirling) flows to carryout cavitation. Removal of three different organic solvents—acetone, methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), and toluene from water were studied on a pilot scale.
