Eduardo Muniz, Bárbara Zon,


Detailed data voltage and electrical current data measured during an electrocoagulation process. File name is given as spatial time (in min) followed by time of polarity inversion (in s). Repeated file names are due to replicates. Also added is an Origin file with the final analysis. To undertand the variables shown in this file it will be necessary to read the corresponding article.


Steps to reproduce

Described in the article. Basically it is necessary to buid an electrocoagulation reactor working in a continuous mode to remove motor oil from water. The files show how much oil was removed, the variation of electrical current and voltage with time, final pH amid other data necessary to understand the eletrochemistry of the process.
