Media Filter Operating Costs
The media filter calculator shown above is designed for users to ascertain the diameter of a round water filters that is accredited to the filter beed speed entered. It is important to know the types of occurrences that can affect the media filter. For instance, the filter bed speed is diminished as a result of elevated levels of total suspended solids (TSS) such as organic substances, silt, algae, grit, and clay, or high levels of turbidity. Even at higher speeds, advanced media filters do exist and are capable of efficiently filtering these contaminants from water. Calculating the flow rate is importance since higher flow rates will cause particles that were retained to be removed and avoid particles from clinging to the media granules.
