Abstract


The main objective of this research work is to improve the filtration technologies to make them more sustainable and accessible for the public. This study focused on developing improved modified operating methods for rapid sand filtration technology. In this an attempt is made one modified rapid sand filter and compare with conventional rapid sand filter. The main objective to increase the efficiency of conventional rapid sand filters by some modification. For construction of modified filter PVC granules are used as capping material as well as ferric chloride also used. Both the material helps to achieve the lower turbidity and total dissolved solid concentration. In this purpose A Fabricated model was prepared having dimension 17x17x12 m. Gravel, Coconut shell (Activated carbon), Sand was filled in the model in the layer of size 45cm, 40cm, 30cm respectively. The tests which are conducted on sample are pH, Turbidity, BOD, Total solids. It improves the performance of filter in terms of high filtration rate, high turbidity removal and high decrease in percentage of total solids and thus making it more applicable. The results indicate that with the developed rapid-sand filters store rate of 137 gallons per day (g/d), the modified filters would require less cleaning than the other traditional filter. This report proposes the implementation of highly iron mitigation measures to prevent long term health effects. It also contains leaflets for widespread information on the construction, use and maintenance of the SAU authority, decision makers, water specialists and scientists confronted with iron mitigation needs.
