  • Power Industry using Micro-Media Filtration and short-bed ion exchange

    With the demand or higher efficiencies, lower maintenance and operating costs for boilwers and turbines, high-purity water treatment systems are becoming more crucial to the operation of power plants. Modern power plants, operating at supercritical and ultra upercritical boiler pressures and temperatures, require high-purity water that approaches quality levels at the theoretical levels. ...

  • Particle deposition and mobilisation during deep bed filtration in oilfields

    Deposition of latex microspheres on a borosilicate filter was carried out at gradually decreasing suspension velocities at conditions favourable for particle attachment and excluding particle retention due to size exclusion. Particle critical retention concentration followed quadratic function of suspension velocity agreeing with the modified particle attachment/detachment model based on ...

  • Iron and manganese removal from groundwater by filtration through a chalcedonite bed

    The aim of this research was to determine the effectiveness of iron and manganese removal from groundwater using chalcedonite sand as a filter bed in rapid filtration. The experiment was conducted at a pilot plant. At the first stage of research, chalcedonite and silica sand were compared. The ripening time for manganese removal of chalcedonite was 27 days while silica sand was ripened within 57 ...

  • Filtration and manganese removal

    Manganese removal through a filter bed is generally carried out and accepted by practitioners and researchers as occurring through catalytic oxidation at the surface of MnO2 coated media, although manganese passage through a coated media filter has been little investigated. To better understand the kinetics of Mn removal through a naturally coated filter, a pilot plant consisting of four filter ...

  • Media expansion monitoring improves filtration

    In municipal surface water treatment plants, optimum filter performance is a crucial component. Filtration is the primary treatment process at water treatment plants, and backwashing is the primary means to keep filters functioning properly to produce safe drinking water for the public. Since 2000, Entech Design, Inc. has used underwater acoustic sensing technology to monitor filter media ...

  • Bank filtration as managed surface-groundwater interaction

    Riverbank Filtration (RBF) is a managed surface-groundwater interaction process where surface water is induced to flow to pumping wells installed on the banks of rivers and lakes. We present the surface-groundwater interaction issues at various geomorphologic settings, from the headwaters of a river to its confluence with the oceans/lakes. In each reach, the factors for the sustainable operation ...

  • Separated adsorption and bacterial degradation of microcystins in GAC filtration

    For removal of microcystins from drinking water, Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) filtration has shown to be promising as it is not only an efficient adsorbent, but also can support biodegradation of microcystins, extending the lifetime of this application. In this study, a sterile and non-sterile GAC column, in addition to a sand column, was studied to distinguish the adsorption and ...

  • Hybrid filtration method for pre-treatment of stormwater

    In this study the hybrid filtration process (combining fibre filter with deep bed dual media filtration) was investigated as pre-treatment to stormwater. This process was investigated in-terms of reduction in turbidity, dissolved organic carbon (DOC), colour, headloss development across the filters, suspended solids removal, organic matter removal, nutrients and heavy matter (such as iron, ...

  • Whitepaper: Chemical-physical Water Treatment, Filtration and Flocculation

    Introduction In water treatment plants chemical-physical processes play an essential part in the process chain. They are successfully employed in the pre- and post-treatment of waters of different origins, as well as of other process liquids. In this regard the removal of particles by filtration is a central step. Classical filtration processes are used for particles ranging from ...

  • Removal of arsenic from drinking water using modified fly-ash bed

    The removal of arsenic from drinking water by filtration through modified fly-ash bed is discussed. The preparation and characteristics of the bed material and the effects of different parameters like pH and the presence of other constituents are described. Various arsenic compounds in synthetic mixtures as well as drinking water samples containing arsenic have been investigated. The ...

  • Modelling of moving bed biofilm membrane reactors (MBBMR) for on-site greywater treatment

    The study evaluates with a mechanistic model the pilot plant results of a combined moving bed biofilm process and membrane filtration (MBBMR) treating single household greywater. It mainly includes the simulation of reactor hydraulics, degradation of pollutants, development of biomass and settlement of sludge. Iterative calibration was made with steady-state results of a 10-month pilot test. The ...

  • Rapid sand filtration pretreatment for SWRO: microbial maturation dynamics and filtration efficiency of organic matter..Desalination 286 :120, 2012

    Rapid sand filtration (RSF) is used today as an effective pretreatment procedure to enhance water quality prior to reverse osmosis (RO) membranes in desalination plants. RSF in newly operated desalination facilities requires a maturation period of about three months before the feedwater may be filtered efficiently. To date the desalination industry RSF has regarded RSF mainly as a ...

  • Experiences on dual media filtration of WWTP effluent

    This research is legislation driven by the European Water Framework Directive (WFD) and the Dutch Fourth Memorandum on Water Management. The objective of this research is to achieve the removal of total nitrogen and total phosphorus by Dual Media Filtration. The target value during this research for total nitrogen is 2.2 mg/L and for total phosphorus 0.15 mg/L. The results show that for NOx-N ...

  • Gravity driven membrane filtration system to improve the water quality in rainwater tanks

    The characterisation of rainwater in metropolitan Sydney and in rural New South Wales was undertaken. The results showed that factors such as the lack of vehicular traffic, air pollution and urban contamination meant that rural rainwater water quality was better. The rain water collected in both metropolitan and rural areas generally complied with the 2004 Australian Drinking Water Guidelines ...

  • Micro Media Filtration Proving Effective in Produced Water Softening Systems

    Having an eff ective, durable pretreatment system in advance of ion exchange produced-water softening systems is the fi rst, most critical line of defense – ensuring smooth, more troublefree performance downstream. It’s especially true when dealing with today’s ion exchange technologies, which require TSS (total suspended solids) of 0.1-0.5 mg/L and turbidities of 0.1-1 NTU ...

  • Effects of ozonation and biological filtration on the formation of nitrogenous disinfection byproducts during chloramination

    This study investigates the formation potential (FP) of nitrogenous disinfection byproducts and haloacetic acids (HAAs) during ozonation and biofiltration. Ozonation of raw waters was performed in batches with 1 mg O3/mg dissolved organic carbon (DOC).
