Diatomaceous Earth Filtration for Safe Drinking Water by George P. Fulton

By George P. Fulton

This is often the 1st e-book to totally hide diatomaceous earth (DE) filtration as utilized to the therapy of consuming water. most fitted to the therapy of low turbidity assets of water offer, DE filtration has proven an excellent power for the elimination of pathogenic cysts like Giardia and Cryptosporidium, in addition to different U.S. EPA well-known pathogens. This e-book presents engineering pros with all of the info wanted for comparing DE filtration instead approach to remedy that's either comparatively cheap and small in put in dimension. This entire booklet serves either as a reference and as a realistic layout guide, supplying either history functionality facts and suggestions for program to standard and strange remedy events. quite a few chapters consultant the engineer via entire layout approaches from initial comparisons with substitute equipment of therapy, via attention of the different sorts of DE filters and ancillary apparatus techniques to be had to pilot trying out, to improvement of layout standards and ultimate layout of remedy amenities. themes mentioned comprise apparatus and fabrics of building as with regards to put on and safeguard, website improvement, plant start-up and operation, troubleshooting working difficulties, and regimen upkeep.

Ozonation and chlorination may provide alternate methods for oxidation. In rapid sand filtration, iron precipitates are agglomerated in flocculation and removed by the filter media. For the most part, oxidation of manganese does not form discrete particles. The manganese is rather con- INTRODUCTION 21 ditioned for removal by "scaling" any surface contacted. The granular media in rapid sand filters becomes coated with a soft manganese scale, eventually reaching a point where the turbulence of backwashing will remove the outer coating.

These and other salient features of the two types are discussed later. 36 DIATOMACEOUS EARTH FILTRATION FOR SAFE DRINKING WATER Vacuum Filter Pressure Filter FIGURE 2-5. Vacuum—Pressure Filter Hydraulic Features DIATOMACEOUS EARTH FILTER TYPES AND OPTIONS 37 Pressure Filters Operating under pressure, the principal advantages of this filter over the vacuum filter alternatives are related to the significantly higher differential head available. This higher head permits: — Operation at higher filter application rates resulting in smaller, more compact filter units — Longer filter runs, which reduce the use of precoat material and sluicing water because of less frequent cleaning cycles.

In the case of the filter leaf, the septum is the woven cloth that divides the applied inlet water side from the internal collection chamber for the filtrate flow. The septum material may either be a tightly woven standard steel wire mesh or a monofilament polypropylene weave. As shown in Figure 2-7, a heavy wire mesh provides the drainage space or chamber for collection of the filtrate flow. The internal chamber volume and configurations must not impede the flow to the outlet nozzle. The chamber material and the outside frame must provide sufficient FIGURE 2-7.
