Performance Test of the Waste Water Ammonia Converter Device (AnCerD) for the Ammonia Removal in Shrimp Farm Industry
In Indonesia, shrimp farm is one type of fishery industry that faces problems in relation to ammonia in its water cycle management, especially for PT Indokor Bangun Desa (PT IBD). The electrolysis way is one of the most potential methods for the shrimp farm’s ammonia wastewater removal because it is a simple technology with the low-cost technical operation and no hazardous emission produced. The objective of this preliminary research was to design an ammonia converter device (AnCerD) that equipped by simple ammonia monitoring tools and tested its performance at laboratory scale. The performance testing had been done include: testing of analyzer compartment for ammonia rapid analysis and testing of converter compartment for ammonia conversion capability. Testing of the AnCerD instrument shown good performance, where no significant different result between analyzer compartment measurement and spectroscopic method of SNI 06-6989.30-2005 (P>0.05). Good performance was also shown by converter compartment testing result where the ammonia conversion efficiency achieved more than 95.64% after 16 minutes.
