Particle Removal by Filtration Processes

2009-4-27  The general features of slow and rapid filters are summarised in Table 6.1. Slow sand filters are conventionally operated at a filtration rate in the range 0.1-0.2 m3m-2h-1 (approximately 0.029 mm s-1) and rely to great extent on the formation of a biological layer or ‘Schmutzdecke’ for their cleansing action. In rapid filters the rate of treatment is typically in the range 5-10 m3m-2h-1 and the full depth of the filter bed contributes to

Rapid vs slow filtration - Biosand filter

Rapid sand filters are made using graded sand, sometimes with an additional coarser layer of material on top of the sand to increase the flow rate (for example, anthracite), in which case they become known as dual-media filters. The effective size for rapid filters is usually greater than 0.55mm with a Uniformity Coefficient of less than 1.5.
