Mixed Liquor Suspended Solids

The MLSS is a term used to describe the concentration of the TSS (particulate matter) in the activated sludge system. The TSS can be divided into two fractions:
The active bacteria that utilizes organic matter and nutrients in the influentThe endogenous residue caused by cell decayNon-biodegradable organic matter (suspended and settle-able) in the influent

MLSS is used to indicate the concentration of suspended solids in activated sludge. MLVSS represents the concentration of biomass in activated sludge. To measure the MLVSS, you can filtrate the activated sludge through 0.45 micro filter. Then, heating at 550 degree C.

Total Suspended Solids (TSS) is a water quality measurement that identifies the suspended load carried by a body of water. Briefly, this technique requires a known volume of well-mixed water to be filtered by a precombusted, pre-weighed, glass fiber filter. The residue and filter are then dried at 105°C in a drying oven, and the mass is recorded. The difference in mass between the post weight and pre-weight is the total suspended solids for the volume of water. Loss on Ignition (LOI) requires an additional combustion step to volatize the organic residue on the filter. After a cooling period, the mass is recorded again. The difference in mass between the TSS weight and the LOI weight is the organic/volatile suspended solids for the volume of water.

MLSS indicates suspended solids which can be done by evaporating a filtered residue which is retained in filter paper at 110-120 deg c. But MLVSS is volatile suspended solids which can be found by volatilizing the retained solids in muffle furnace at 600 deg c

The MLVSS are a part of MLSS. To measurement the MLVSS fraction you can filtrate the activated sludge through 0.45 micro filter and burn at 550 °C. For more details you can read the Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater.
Mixed Liquor Suspended Solids MLSS is a testing measures the total concentration of mixed liquor suspended (non-soluble) solids in the aeration basin of an activated sludge system. The mixed liquor suspended solids (MLSS) data is critical in determining the operational behavior and solids inventory of the system and it is used to determine when to waste and/or recycle sludge.
Mixed liquor volatile suspended solids (MLVSS) test may be performed in order to determine the concentration of volatile suspended solids in the aeration basin of an activated sludge system.e
VSS should represent the biomass concentration, TSS is the total suspended solids, of which part is the biomass. As the VSS/TSS ratio increases, higher is the activity of the biomass in a biological reactor.
The portion of the MLSS that is actually eating the incoming food is referred to as the Mixed Liquor Volatile Suspended Solids (MLVSS). The volatile solids concentration in a sample of mixed liquor will consist mostly of microorganisms and organic matter. As a result, the volatile solids concentration of mixed liquor is approximately equal to the amount of microorganisms in the water and can be used to determine whether there are enough microorganisms present to purify the water.
Are both same? When an organism is in anoxic condition, does it shift to anaerobic mode of metabolism?
In microbial fuel cell techniques, I usually find that term, Hydraulic retention time, can any one help in explaining that?
