  • Drinking water treatment, AFM replaces sand in sand filters

    Drinking Water Treatment by AFM, 30% - 80 improvement in sand filter performance Cryptosporidium problem and THM's eliminated. All sand filter will suffer to some degree from bacterial fouling. The alginates excreted by the bacteria cause coagulation of the sand grains which in turn leads to wormhole channeling of water through the filter bed. The worm holes provide a conduit for the ...

  • An antimicrobial polycationic sand filter for water disinfection

    A new sand filtration water disinfection technology is developed which relies on the antimicrobial properties of hydrophobic polycations (N-hexylated polyethylenimine) covalently attached to the sand's surface. The efficacy of the filter disinfection process was evaluated both with water spiked with E. coli and with real aqueous effluent from a wastewater treatment plant. For the ...

  • Algae Control in Lakes and Reservoirs

    There are plenty of harmful algal bloom related cases worldwide but what is evident is that their number elevates with each year. Excessive cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) and green algae growth in a water reservoir can have negative consequences for the water quality. The water turns green, sand filters can clog, and some algae can produce geosmins and MIB, giving the water an ...

  • Seven Ways Your Facility Isn’t Meeting Effluent Regulations and How to Solve Them

    Whether you own, operate, or help manage a municipal or industrial facility that deals with wastewater, it’s important to understand how wastewater treatment can play a significant role in the overall health of your business, especially when it comes to meeting effluent regulations. This is an important part of the wastewater treatment process to consider, as ignoring it could earn your ...

  • How Thames Water reinvented its fast sand filters

    World best filter material for purification of drinking When algal blooms put the sand filters under pressure, Thames Water started its own in-house research into new filter materials. Not only did the effort cure the constraint, the use of new filter materials has saved millions in investments. Fast Cleaning To purify water with ...

  • Comparison of grey water treatment performance by a cascading sand filter and a constructed wetland

    A novel unplanted vertical flow subsurface constructed wetland technology comprising three shallow beds (0.6 m length, 0.45 m width and 0.2 m depth) arranged in a cascading series and a standard single-pass Vertical Flow Planted Constructed Wetland (VFPCW, 6 m2 and 0.7 m depth) were tested for grey water treatment. Particular focus was on meeting consent for published wastewater reuse parameters ...

  • Performance of modified design pond sand filters

    Two pond sand filters (PSFs) with modified design were constructed in Pathorghata Upazila of Barguna District located in southern Bangladesh. Performance assessment of the PSFs was done after commissioning in terms of quality of filtered water, ease of operation and maintenance, monthly check-up of production capacity/efficiency of the filters, users' participation and acceptability of the ...

  • Simulation of water flow and solute transport in intermittent sand filter

    Water and solute transport in intermittent sand filtration was simulated with a modified HYDRUS 1D program. Field trials were performed through a 10 × 10 m infiltration basin located at Dissa agriculture area in the north of Gabes city (south-east Tunisia). Performance of the calibrated model has been statistically evaluated for its ability to predict water flow and solute transport. Comparisons ...

  • Removal of geosmin and 2-methylisoborneol through biologically active sand filters

    The removal of taste and odour compounds from drinking water is a constant challenge to water authorities. Although adverse odours do not present a risk to human health, their presence often leads to a misconception that the water is unsafe for drinking. 2-Methylisoborneol (MIB) and geosmin are the most common causes of earthy/musty odour, and are not easily removed by conventional treatment ...

  • Influence of operating parameters on the performance of a household slow sand filter

    The biosand filter (BSF), an intermittently operated household slow sand filter, is one of the commonly used household water purification methods in the rural areas of developing countries. In this study, long-duration tests were conducted in the laboratory to investigate the influence of two important operating parameters, namely the pause period (idle time) and the charge volume on the ...

  • A novel acoustic imaging tool for monitoring the state of rapid sand filters

    A new technology based on acoustic waves is developed to monitor the state of sand filters used in drinking water treatment. Changes in the sand filter, due to the removal of suspended particles from the water and their accumulation in the pores, result in an increase of the bulk density and acoustic speed of the granular material. Consequently, the reflected acoustic response changes as the ...

  • Effects of earthworms on surface clogging characteristics of intermittent sand filters

    Intermittent sand filters (ISFs) are effective and economical in treating wastewater, but they are easy to clog up. To explore a feasible and simple method to alleviate clogging, two pilot-scale ISFs were constructed, one of which contained earthworms and the other did not. During the operation, the effects of earthworms on the hydraulic behaviour of ISFs were investigated. The results showed ...

  • Numerical prediction of the performance of horizontal sand filters as the pitch of the spiral protrusion changes

    The height of vertical sand filters are limited due to their structural cost. A horizontal sand filter may offer a better alternative; however, flow channels to the least resistance zone generated at the top of the filter as the sand gets wet and settles. A horizontal sand filter, internally baffled with spiral protrusion, is numerically modelled to study the effect of these spirals in reducing ...

  • Removal of contaminants and pathogens from secondary effluents using intermittent sand filters

    Intermittent infiltration percolation of wastewater through unsaturated sand bed is an extensive treatment technique aimed at eliminating organic matter, oxidizing ammonium and removing pathogens. The main purpose of this study was to determine the depuration efficiencies of a sand filter to remove contaminants from secondary wastewater effluents. Elimination of pathogenic bacteria (total and ...
