Abstract
THE MAJOR OBJECTIVE OF THE RESEARCH PROPOSED IS EVALUATION OF THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF THE NEW DESIGN FEATURES OF THE FILTER AND A COMPARISON OF ITS PERFORMANCE WITH CONVEN- TIONAL FILTERS IN TREATMENT OF WASTEWATERS. THE MAJOR SPECIFIC FEATURE OF THE FILTER IS A STONE-GRANULAR MEDIA BED WHICH IS EXPECTED TO PROVIDE A NON CLOGGING OPERATION, LONGER FILTRATION RUNS AND GREATER DIRT CAPACITY THAN THE EXISTING FILTERS. A PILOT PLANT OF THE NEW FILTER WILL BE OPERATED AT THE CLAYTON WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT. THE FILTER WILL BE EVALUATED FOR REMOVAL OF SUSPENDED SOLIDS. 5-DAY BIOCHEM- ICAL OXYGEN DEMAND, TURBIDITY AND CHANGES PARTICLE SIZE DISTRIBUTIONS. THE RUN LENGTH TIME AND BACKWASH EFFICIENCY WILL ALSO BE EVALUATED. THE FILTER WILL BE EVALUATED IN COMPARISON WITH TWO 150-MM DIAMETER COLUMN FILTERS INCOR- PORATING CONVENTIONAL DESIGNS OF WASTEWATER FILTERS WITH MONO MEDIA AND DUAL MEDIA. APPROXIMATELY TWENTY-FIVE FILTERRUNS ARE PLANNED TO BE COMPLETED.
