Maximum Available Filter Pressure Drop

automated. Some regulatory agencies, however, prefer gravity systems because the filters can be observed during filtration and backwashing.

lating in the filter media. The effluent quality is slightly better at the start of each filtration and remains relatively constant until media voids are full. Then, a sudden breakthrough of solids into the filtrate occurs. A filter is optimized when the maximum available filter pressure drop coincides in time with the breakthrough of the SS (see Figure 7.33.7).

Solar Stirling Engine Basics Explained

Solar Stirling Engine Basics Explained

The solar Stirling engine is progressively becoming a viable alternative to solar panels for its higher efficiency. Stirling engines might be the best way to harvest the power provided by the sun. This is an easy-to-understand explanation of how Stirling engines work, the different types, and why they are more efficient than steam engines.
