General Description

The Deep Bed Filter Unit, "EFLP", allows us to filter a fluid in order to eliminate particles in suspension, to have it in more adequateconditions for its subsequent use or consumption.

The pump takes raw water from one of the reservoirs of the unit and propels it towards the upper part of the column. That raw water passesthrough a diaphragm valve that controls the inlet flow rate of the column and a flowmeter that measures such flow rate.

The liquid to be filtered goes down the column, crossing the filtering media settled as a bed and the pressure along the entire bed ismeasured at 30 points. It enables the measurement of the pressure drop that is visualized by the increase of the resistance that the filteropposes to the fluid.

The filtration process can be performed in closed or open circuit.

The solids settled in the filter can be removed by countercurrent washing.

Exercises and guided practices

GUIDED PRACTICAL EXERCISES INCLUDED IN THE MANUAL

  1. Determination of the initial head loss of a deep bed.
  2. Evolution through time of the head loss of the deep bed.
  3. Measuring pressure drop profiles through the bed.
  4. Demonstration of reversed flow and backwashing fluidisation.
  5. Filtering in open and closed circuit.

MORE PRACTICAL EXERCISES TO BE DONE WITH THE UNIT

  1. The column may be readily adapted for absorption and ion exchange studies.
  2. Measuring suspension concentration profiles through the filter bed.
