Rapid Gravity Filter - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Rapid gravity filters operate in downflow mode for a period, until either a maximum time has elapsed or the headloss through the filter or outlet turbidity becomes excessive because of solids deposited within the body of the filter medium. The filter is then taken offline, and backwashing is carried out to recover the filter to a clean state ...
