    AN ABSTRACT OF THE THESIS Michael Dan Roach for the Master of Science in Civil Engineering (Name) (Degree) Contact Time and Reaction Rates 8 EXPERIMENTAL EQUIPMENT AND METHODS 11 Physical Design 11 Equipment 11 organic material in the laboratory model of a trickling filter with the time of retention of liquid in the filter. Design a one stage high rate trickling filter to produce a BOD effluent of 50 mg/L. given the following data: Q = 10, m3/d Influent BOD = mg/L Temperature (T) = 20 oC Primary sedimentation tanks will be used before the trickling filter Solution To design trickling filter the following things should be found: • The volume of the filter.

    Trickling Filter is the most common choice of use in biological wastewater treatment filter system is consist of a media bed in which wastewater is continuously distributed. Trickling filters can be divided into different types mainly on the criteria based on the organic loading rates to the treatment plant system from low up to super-high rate trickling filters. Trickling filters are classified by hydraulic or organic loading, as high-rate or low-rate. The organic load on a filter is the BOD content in pounds applied to the filter. This is usually expressed as pounds of BOD per day per 1, cubic feet of filter medium or pounds of BOD per day per acre foot.

The solids retention time. The maximum nitrifying growth rate is reached at a DO concentration of 2 to mg/L. However, it is not necessary to grow at the maximum growth rate to get effective nitrification if there is adequate contact time in the system.

As a result there is a broad range of DO BOD. Trickling September, TRICKLING FILTER. Intermediate-rate filters Intermediate rate filters can be loaded up to 64 kg BOD 5/ m 3-d (40 lb BOD 5/cu ft/day). In order to ensure good distribution and thorough blending of the filter and secondary effluent, the system should recirculate the trickling filter effluent.

The biological solids that slough from an intermediate trickling filter are not as well digested. As a result, the organisms eventually slough from the surface and a new biofilm is formed. BOD removal by trickling filters is approximately 85% for low-rate filters (U.S.

EPA, ). Effluent from the trickling filter usually passes into a final clarifier to further separate solids from effluent.

single-stage TF system. The filters were each 40 feet wide, 90 feet long, and 17 feet deep, with plastic cross-flow media. At the time of the study, the plant was operating at a design flow of 2 million gallons per day (mgd) with a hydraulic loading rate averaging m3/m2/d ( gpd/ft2).

The plant was. High rate or high capacity trickling filters 1. Low Rate Filters They are also known as standard rate or conventional rate filters. The settled sewage is applied to the filter bed and after trickling through it, passes through the final sedimentation tank for removal of most of the stabilized solids.

High Rate Filters In case of high rate File Size: KB. Based on hydraulic and organic loadings, the trickling filters may be classified as (1) Low rate trickling filter (Figure a) and (2) High rate trickling filter (Figure b).

Recirculation is employed in high rate filters to improve efficiency. The recirculation helps in providing seeding. Plots of published data according to equation (9) for standard trickling filters.

Characteristic evaluation of trickling filter process for the plastic media and from to for rock media. Data analysis with high-rate trickling filters. In high-rate trickling filters recycling is used to enhance BOD removal under high BOD by: 9. A modern trickling filter consists of a bed of highly permeable media to which micro-organism are attached and sewage percolates or trickle down and hence the name “Trickling Filter”.The filter media consists of rocks varying in size from mm.

Trickling filters are conventional aerobic biological wastewater treatment units, such as active sludge systems or rotating biological advantage of all these systems is that they are compact (i.e. applicable in densely populated urban settings) and that they.

devices for increased contact time. Eeports of performance for increased loading on standard-rate filters are few, but experiments by Levine et at.

(5) and by Keefer and Kratz (3) are notable contributions. Others (1)(6) have reported results of instances where standard rates have been ex ceeded due to operation at higher than design loadings.

Trickling filters shall be designed as standard-rate, high-rate, or super-rate based on hydraulic and biological loadings. (a) The hydraulic loading on standard-rate trickling filters shall be between 1 and 4 million gallons per acre per day with an organic loading between 5 and 20 pounds BOD5 per 1, cubic feet of media per day.

High Rate Nitrifying Trickling Filters. TAN conversion rates of sand filters increased with the increase of HLR up to m^3/m^2. per day. The trickling filter solids contact water. The biological solids that slough from an intermediate trickling filter are not as well digested as those using a low-rate filter.

High-rate filters High-rate filters are generally loaded at the maximum organic loading capabilities of the filter and receive total BOD5 loading ranging from 64 to kgBOD5/m3-d(5/cu ft/day). Trickling filter is a type of waste water treatment process, which is an attached growth this process the microorganisms responsible for digestion are attached to an inert filter material.

This Packing material can be rock, gravel, sand and a. Biofilm Modelling and Kinetics in a Trickling Filter Process. and reaction rate was obtained in a L tower of m height continuously fed with synthetic wastewater containing ammonia with.

Hence, Diameter of trickling filter = m Example: 3 Design high rate trickling filter for the data given above except effluent BOD5 = 40 mg/l since polishing treatment is provided after high rate trickling filter. Consider recirculation ratio of 2 and filter depth of m.

2Q, BOD = 40 TF SST. Enhancing reaction rates in nitrifying trickling filters through biofilm control Denny Parker, Mike Lutz, Rodney Dahl, Stephanie Bernkopf ABSTRACT: Reaction rates in tertiary nitrifying trickling filters have been significantly increased by the development of the bio film-controlled nitrifying trickling filter (BCNTF).

The use of. What you should note in the table above is that the recommended detention time of to hours is the same for both primary and secondary clarifiers, as is the surface settling rate.

Where this table differs from the primary clarifier table is with the reduction in the weir overflow rate for. Tower trickling filter media or packing provide the surface over which microorganisms grow. Crushed stone or plastic are the most commonly used materials.

From time to time dislodging or washing off of slime from the trickling filter media occurs, something commonly referred to as sloughing. Anaerobic activity at the slime media boundary is. Trickling filter (TF) systems have several attractive advantages, such as simple operation, easy maintenance, low operation and maintenance costs, and low excess sludge production (Metcalf & Eddy ).Cited by: 5.

The final step involves checking to ensure that the TF is receiving influent wastewater and recirculation at the proper organic and hydraulic loading. More information on operating and maintaining trickling filters (TF) can be obtained from the U.S.

EPA Wastewater Technology Fact sheet, Trickling Filters, EPA F .A trickling filter is a type of wastewater treatment system. It consists of a fixed bed of rocks, coke, gravel, slag, polyurethane foam, sphagnum peat moss, ceramic, or plastic media over which sewage or other wastewater flows downward and causes a layer of microbial slime to grow, covering the bed of media.

Aerobic conditions are maintained by splashing, diffusion, and either by forced-air.A Trickling water treatment filter (TF), an attached growth system, consists of a fixed bed of highly permeable media on whose surface a mixed population of microorganisms is developed as a slime layer.

The fixed media in Trickling water treatments filter may be of rocks, plastic, metal, etc. In Trickling water filter there is no straining or filtering action involved.
