Rapid Sand Filters Water Treatment Waste Water ...

2014-7-26  The Rapid Sand Filter (RSF) water treatment equipment differs from the Slow Sand Filter water treatment equipment in a variety of ways, the most important of which are the much greater water treatment filtration rate and the ability to clean automatically using back washing. The mechanism of particle removal also differs.

Rapid sand filtration Cropaia

Typical filtration rate for rapid sand filter is 5 m/h, compared to 0.15 m/h in slow sand filtration. The area required for sand filtration can be calculated using the following equation: A = Q/V. Where, A is the filter area in square meters (m 2) Q – Inlet water flow rate in m 3 /h. V – filtration velocity in m/h. We can use this equation to compare the required filtration area between slow sand filtration and rapid sand filtration:
