Abstract. The purpose of filtration is to remove the particulates suspended in water by passing the water through a layer of porous material. Larger particulates are retained by straining and sedimentation, while colloidal matter is retained by adsorption, or coagulation and sedimentation.

The mechanism of particle removal also differs. Rapid sand Water filter does not use biological filtration and depends primarily on. The water molecule has another interesting characteristic: its ability to dissociate itself.

This is expressed in the equation shown: WATER-PURIFICATION Theory Water is a very simple molecule (two hydrogen atoms combined with one oxygen atom), but that simple combination allows the emergence of exceptional properties that have made water theFile Size: KB.

Filter Sand. The filter sand used in rapid sand filters is manufactured specifically for the purpose of water filtration. Most rapid sand filters contain inches of sand, but some newer filters are deeper. The sand used is generally to mm in diameter.

This is larger than the sand used in slow rate filtration. The rapid sand filter or rapid gravity filter is a type of filter used in water purification and is commonly used in municipal drinking water facilities as part of a multiple-stage treatment system.

Rapid sand filters were first developed in the s, and improved designs were developed by the s. The first modern rapid sand filtration plant was designed and built by George W. Fuller in. Rapid Sand Filters. Rapid sand filters are divided into two main types: (1) gravity filters and (2) pressure filters.

The principles of the two types of filters are identical. The pressure filter is operated at elevated pressures, thus prolonging the filter cycle and/or increasing the rate of flow of water through.

In rapid sand filtration, water flows through a tank containing coarse sand and deposits material as it goes. Rapid sand filtration may be differentiated from slow sand filtration in that the sand used is larger than 1mm in diameter, compared to the much finer sand used in slow sand filtration.

The water should not be too turbid, otherwise the filter will get clogged. Patho-gens are naturally removed. Theory The theory governing fluid transport through membranes is often expressed as follows NA =ρAv −DAB∇ρA v v v (1) where NA is the mass flux of component A through the membrane (mass per time per area), ρA is the mass density of component A, v v is the mass average velocity of the fluid through File Size: KB.

Water operators will find a wealth of hands-on information on the operation and maintenance of pretreatment, rapid-rate granular media filtration, slow-sand filtration, and diatomaceous-earth filtration systems in this book. This practical guide provides recommended procedures for operating, monitoring, and maintaining all types of filters used for conventional water treatment.

Different types of filtration systems can be used, such as slow sand filtration, rapid sand filtration, slanted soil, and others common systems techniques like sequencing batch reactor, upflow.

Granular Filtration. Granular filtration is a major unit process employed at nearly all WTPs. They are composed of beds of graded coarse silica or quartz sands and gravels, although other inert materials such as anthracite and activated carbon may also be included.

Two discrete types of filters are used, which are classified by the loading rate into rapid and slow sand filters.

Water purification is the process of removing undesirable chemicals, biological contaminants, suspended solids, and gases from water.

The goal is to produce water fit for specific purposes. Most water is purified and disinfected for human consumption (drinking water), but water purification may also be carried out for a variety of other purposes, including medical, pharmacological, chemical. Sedimentation can be carried out by holding the raw water in ponds or tanks.

The four basic types of filtration are cartridge filtration, rapid sand filtration, multimedia sand filtration, and up-flow filtration. Cartridge filtration: This system is designed to handle waters of low turbidity and will remove solids in the 5 to micron range.

Sand was used as a filtration media under different filtration rates ranged from 4 m/hr to 8 m/hr. Down flow was applied to the filter through sand media with size of mm, while sand depth. Filtration. The resultant water after sedimentation will not be pure, and may contain some very fine suspended particles and bacteria in it.

To remove or to reduce the remaining impurities still further, the water is filtered through the beds of fine granular material, such as sand, etc. The process of passing the water through the beds of suchFile Size: KB.
