A prototype rotary vacuum precoat filter unit RVPF was built and tested with concentrated human waste dewatering. Results confirmed earlier pilot plant studies with respect to filtration rates and filter and consumption. Suspended solids removal was virtually complete, mostly above 99.9 percent. It was also found that the feed material degrades rapidly over the first several days and filtration rates increase but not as rapidly as TSS decrease. The report includes pictures and drawings of the equipment and a proposed purchase specification. An Operations Manual was also prepared. Author
