Industrial Wastewater

A comparison of five industrial wastes shows that the SS content varies from 0.28 to 400 lb per unit of production (Eckenfelder 1966). The majority (65 to 75%) of non-polymeric chemical substances are soluble in water at 25°C

FIG. 7.47.3 Deep-bed filter with intermittent backwash. Water supply for backwashing occupies the upper part of the filter tank. When the drop across the filter reaches 4 ft of water, an air scour blows through the bed, carrying collected matter from the media. Then, the stored water flows through the bed in reverse, leaving the sand and anthracite clean.
