The fluid residence time characterization of a 3.4 m diameter hydrodynamic vortex separator (HDVS) has been carried out under laboratory conditions. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling has then been undertaken for the same conditions at which the experimental data were collected and validated against the experimental results, for which reasonable correspondence has been found. Using the results from the CFD modelling and batch inactivation results from the disinfection of secondary treated wastewater, it is shown that the theoretical performance of an HDVS as a contact vessel for disinfection can be determined and the practical applicability of an HDVS for disinfection is confirmed.
