ABSTRACT
In this research the removal of sesame oil from aritifical water by Fenton process technique was investigated . The results of removal efficiency were compared with actual wastewater . Effect of time, pH, mixing speed, temperature, oil content were investigated to find the perfect circumstances. The conducted experiments revealed that the optimal conditions for this process were 160 minutes of reaction time in an acidic medium where pH was equal to 3.5 , temperature was discovered to be 25°C, the optimal mixing speed was at 500 rpm , and the Sesame oil concentration amounted to 1500 mg/l. Applying the optimal conditions for this processing, the results of compersion showed the sesame oil had a removal efficiency of 95% for the artificial wastewater in which the concentration decreased from 12800 to 68 mg/l, while the Fenton method was used to treat an actual sample of wastewater the removal efficiency is found to be 87% .
