ACTIVATED CARBON FILTER
Activated Carbon Filter Plant
Multigrade filter is a depth filter that makes use of coarse and fine media mixed together in a fixed proportion. This arrangement produces a filter bed with adequate pore . dimensions for retaining both large and small suspended particles. This filter performs at a substantially higher specific flow rate than conventional filters. Specific flow rates of 15 – 30 m/h have been successfully obtained for treating waters containing 25 – 50 ppm suspended solids respectively to produce filtrate with less than 5 ppm. This filter performs at a substantially higher specific flow rate than conventional filters. The basic difference between Pressure Sand Filter (PSF) and Multigrade Sand Filter (MGF) are media used in vessel and velocity variation.
A typical pressure sand filter consists of a pressure vessel-this could be either vertical or horizontal-fitted with a set of frontal pipe work and valves, graded sand supported by layers of graded under bed consisting of pebbles and silex, a top distributor to distribute the incoming water uniformly throughout the cross section of the filter, and an under drain system to collect filtered water
Anthracite Filter Media is thoroughly selected from anthracite which yields the highest percentage of carbon. It is then hydraulically classified to reduce mineral matter and ash to a minimum, and finally screened and washed to ensure suitability for filtration purposes.
Activated carbon filter media aggressively adsorbs organic pollutants from water & waste water, detoxifies harmful gases and removes unwanted colors or odors from your water. The coconut shell based Activated carbon media removes colour,odour and dissolved chlorine from water. Specific flow rates of 15 – 30 m/h have been successfully obtained for treating waters containing 1 – 5 ppm load.
Advantages Filter Plant are
Activated Carbon Filter
- Removes Colour & Odour
- Removes dissolved chlorine and hence useful in Ion exchange Resin based softner / DM & RO plant treatment to protect it from oxidation.
- Ideal for pretreatment and waste water treatment.
