Abstract

Pollution is the most serious global environmental concerns these days. Water pollutants in Malaysia often cover problems associated with insufficient waste management. It is not only environmental issues but also an economic loss if there are any spillage or inefficient extraction implies. Due to the toxicity of many compounds in oil, its can cause major environmental problems to aquatic organisms, birds, and humans. In Sungai Melaka, if rain occur, the water in Sungai Melaka will increasing and all the rubbish will floating in the river. Thus a river trash collector system (RTCS) was designed and developed to handle this problem. A filter is needed to be installed at the end of the RTCS before water flow to the river to filter the water so oil contaminant, particles dissolved, particles as well as odour water can be reduced. Therefore in this study is subjected to (i) design oil filtration system for River Trash Collector System (RTCS), (ii) fabricate oil filtration system for River Trash Collector System (RTCS) and (iii) analyse quality of filtered water. Several strainer concept were develop and the best concept was selected and designed using Catia V5. There were 3 parts of strainer which are top, middle and bottom part. A strainer was put in the PVC pipe. Natural sorbent materials such as rice husk ash and kapok fiber were used as filter material and installed into the designed strainer in several layers. The arrangement of layers were kapok fiber then rice husk ash and end with kapok fiber. There were 2 categories of water sample which are: (i) river water, (ii) oil – water mixture. The water sample were taken from Pokok Bakau Taman Rempah, The Pines Hotel, Kg Morten, Pokok Bakau Kg Morten, and Jambatan The Shore. Four parameter were analysed which were total dissolved solid, temperature, pH value and filter rate. The average results before and after filtering were 299ppm and 171ppm for TDS, 7.0 and 7.5 for pH value, and 0.421ml/s for filter rate. As conclusion, the water filter can filtered the water and improve the water quality and reduce oil contaminant.
