Water Treatment Media Filter
Regular water carries impurities toxic to humans, animal life, and the surroundings, so wastewater treatment is necessary.
Wastewater treatment plants use a mechanical process called media filtration and use water treatment media filters. In this case, both chemical and physical absorption processes are used.
Diffusion, interception, sedimentation, and straining are the four critical water treatment media filters.
A water treatment media filter is an excellent option for polluted water and effectively removes turbidity, organic material, and other impurities. However, this procedure only removes a portion of the dissolved solids.
Various treatment plants employ water treatment media filters, primarily due to their efficient fabrication and dual filtration process.
The selection of a water treatment media filter relies on several factors that must be taken into account to produce excellent filtration results:
- The maximum flow rate essential
- Turbidity or the nature of suspended solids (colloidal or non-colloidal)
- Analysis of the feed water
- Water treated to the required standard
- A sufficient supply of water for the backwashing process.
There are multiple graded layers in a water treatment media filter. The heavier layers are graded at the base, while the softer layers are graded at the upper end. The lighter layers are usually planned with larger grains. Larger contaminants are filtered out from the water before smaller contaminants, increasing filtration efficiency while using fewer filter media.
Sand and anthracite are the most popular water treatment media filters in multimedia filters. The sand is lighter and has smaller grains than anthracite, allowing the sand layer to settle underneath the anthracite, allowing for finer filtration. Multimedia filters can remove particulates as small as 20 microns.
