Rapid sand filter Wikipedia

The rapid sand filter or rapid gravity filter is a type of filter used in water purification and is commonly used in municipal drinking water facilities as part of a multiple-stage treatment system. Rapid sand filters were first developed in the 1890s, and improved designs were developed by the 1920s. The first modern rapid sand filtration plant was designed and built by George W. Fuller in Little Falls, New Jersey. Rapid sand filters were widely used in large municipal water systems by the 1920s, because th

Rapid Gravity Filter an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Rapid gravity filters employing graded sand are washed by separate use of air and water through the bed by reverse flow and the used washwater is removed by a washwater collection channel. Combined air-water wash would intermix the media and result in loss of media. The first operation is to allow the filter to drain down until the water lies a

Rapid gravity sand filters: Developments in filter floor

Mar 23, 2009· Total media cleaning is the key requirement for a rapid gravity filter to function effectively and efficiently under all loading conditions. Backwashing gravity filters is necessary to remove the solids collected by the media during the filtration run. An upward flow of water or a combination of air and water to fluidise and scour the media is

Rapid gravity filtration operational performance

Apr 01, 2017· Rapid gravity filters, the final particulate barrier in many water treatment systems, are typically monitored using on-line turbidity, flow and head loss instrumentation. Current metrics for assessing filtration performance from on-line turbidity data were critically assessed and observed not to effectively and consistently summarise the

Rapid vs slow filtration Biosand filter

There are two main types of sand filters that are used for water treatment: rapid sand filters (also known as Rapid Gravity Filters or RGFs) and slow sand filters. Sand filters should not be confused with Roughing Filters, which tend to be horizontal-flow gravel filters used as a roughing treatment for turbid raw waters prior to sand filtration.
