Abstract:

The specific objective of this investigation was to apply existing theoretical concepts used in aerosol mechanics to various water filtration systems. Once developed, these equations were used to describe the water filtration processes of concern as a function of the characteristics of the fluid, suspended particles, and filter media. It was concluded that the proposed model had the potential to predict the relationship between flow, pressure, time, and efficiency for the data evaluated. In addition, the model was found to have advantages over current water filtration models since, unlike current models, it considers raw water quality and predicts filtration efficiency. Author
