SLOW SAND FILTRATION - IRC

2014-3-7  2.2 The Slow Sand Filter The basic elements of a slow sand filter are shown diagrammatically in Fig. 1 but each plant will have site-specific variations of detail to minimize cost, taking advantage of local conditions. Essential features of the slow sand filtration process are: A - A storage capacity above the sand bed to provide the necessary ...

Slow Sand Filter - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Slow sand filters are a simple, reliable and easy to operate system. The filtration rate for slow sand filters is typically 50–100 times slower than that of granular media filters. Therefore, a much larger area is needed for the filter bed to produce an equivalent amount of water. Contaminants are removed from water through a combination and ...

Slow Sand Filtration - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Slow sand filters are the least complex type of granular media filter. They are typically housed in reinforced concrete structures, with a basin with a bed of relatively fine sand placed over support gravel (0.3–0.6 m in depth) and underdrain piping up to 0.9–1.5 m

Slow Sand Filtration: Design, Operation, and Maintenance

For example, many slow sand filtration plants are being planned in the northern part of the United States to cope with water sources infected with Giardia lamblia. Another significant advantage of the efficiency of slow sand filtration is the considerable reduction in the chlo-rine needed to disinfect the water. Slow sand filters are an essential

2017-1-10  However, slow sand filtration systems require large areas of land to operate, because the flow rate of the water is between 0.1 and 0.3 metre per hour. Due to the land area that is required and the down-time for cleaning, rapid sand filters, which were developed in the early 20 th century, are much more prevalent today.
