Lesson 7: Filtration
The fine screen and the buildup of filtered particles cause a high head loss through the filter. When the head loss reaches a maximum level 30 psi on a pressuretype filter or 15 inches of mercury on a vacuumtype filter the filter cake must be removed by backwashing.
Characterization of activated carbon prepared by phosphoric
HK pore size distribution of olive stones activated carbon samples. The HK plots are in all cases bimodal with two maxima centered around 0.8 and 1.0 nm for OS6 and shifted to new two peak maxima 1.2 and 1.6 for OS7 and OS8 with the increase of acid concentration.
Does anyone know what the exact particle size for granular
The most popular aqueous phase carbons are the 1240 and 830 sizes because they have a good balance of size surface area and head loss characteristics. Cite 2 Recommendations
Powdered Activated Carbon an overview ScienceDirect Topics
Powdered activated carbon at 1000 mg l 1 achieved greater than 80 reductions of the total ion chromatogram while dissolved organic carbon removals ranged from 9.5 to 48.3. These results suggested that coagulation with ferric chloride at doses as low as 5 mg l 1 is an effective process for turbidity and total petroleum hydrocarbon
Drinking Water Filtration Using Granular Activated Carbon
When utilizing smaller mesh size GAC 39s such as 8x30 and 12x40 a shallow bed needs to be employed to maintain acceptable head loss across the filter. The larger mesh sizes such as 8x16 and 8x20 allow the use of deep beds but the deep penetration of the filtered particles requires the initial air scour step prior to backwashing.

CHAPTER 3. ACTIVATED CARBON COLUMNS PLANT DESIGN 115 3.2.2. Calculations. Firstly it was necessary to estimate some parameters. Due to the activated carbon effective size was known the column diameter was the first parameter to be estimated. Following the rules mentioned above the value decided was 5.0 cm. A smaller diameter should not be
