Conventional Filtration

Filtration is the use of sand, carbon, or some other medium to remove suspended solids. Filters may be either gravity or pressure type. The filter contains a bed of porous media. Water fills the pores of the media leaving behind the suspended solids in the voids or on the media itself. Best filtration efficiency occurs when the unit is operated at the design flow rate. If the flow rate is too low, solids will pass through the loosely packed medium. If the flow rate is too high, water will channel through the media carrying solids with it. Also, high pressure can break some types of media and cause it to be lost during the backwash of the unit.
