The electrocoagulation technology for reducing suspended solids in water treatment has been studied. All the experiments carried out in this work were static method. Batch experiments with two mono polar aluminum (A1) plate anodes and cathodes were employed as electrodes. The turbid sample (800 NTU) was prepared by dissolving 10g of kaolin into 1 L of distill water. Prior to the experiment, pH of the sample was adjusted at range of 3.5 to 8.5. DC current was varied 1 A to 5 A, and operating time between 0 to 60 minutes. The results showed that, electrocoagulation can reduce turbidity efficiency as high as 92.68 % with the optimize pH at 8.5, at 50 minutes, 3A of current.
