Biography KUL Leonid Adolfovich
renowned expert in the field of cleaning and disinfection of natural water and sewage.
He is one of the founders of the new direction of chemical engineering - chemistry and technology of water purification. LA,. Kul his work laid the theoretical foundation for the development of the important problems of chemical treatment of natural and industrial wastewater. Along with the development of theoretical issues of this important branch of science, LA,. Kul made an enormous contribution to the engineering solution of many problems of water supply of populated areas and water protection.
In 1930. it was designed first domestic pressure type chlorinator chlorine for disinfecting drinking water, widely spread in our country. Under the guidance and direct participation, LA. Kul in the Great Patriotic War have been developed for the construction of electrolytic plants hypochlorite and chlorine from salt solutions, . Field created pressure chlorinator for the Soviet Army, . designed a number of other devices for cleaning and disinfection of water.,
. In the postwar years, through research, LA
. Kul, . his students and colleagues developed a method to intensify the processes of water purification by means of inorganic flocculants - active silicic acid - and constructed the corresponding high-performance and reliable devices for its practical application in water supply.,
. The work carried out by LA,
. Kul and under his leadership, . given also to theoretically justify the conditions of adsorption and ion exchange processes for deep cleaning of industrial sewage and helped to create several types of technological schemes of sewage treatment and extraction of valuable components.,
. Even in the 30-ies, LA
. Kul began to engage in research the possibility of using silver for water. Then they developed a method to obtain solutions of silver with anodic dissolution of metal and constructed of appropriate domestic equipment - ionatory.
Over the years, LA. Kul and his students studied the properties of solutions of silver, the possibility of their use for preserving drinking water and other purposes.
