Compressible media filtration (CMF) has shown potential to be used for Primary Filtration (PF) as an alternative to conventional primary sedimentation. This presentation will include treatment and hydraulic performance of a demonstration-scale CMF for PF.
Participants will be able to gain a broader understanding of emerging technologies used for advanced primary treatment.
Participants will become familiar with removal mechanisms and unit operations involved in compressible media filtration.
Participants will explore the impact carbon diversion and improved primary treatment performance can have on a facility's power consumption and operational costs.
