Column Filtration System
Column Filtration System (CFS)
Simulate the process of a direct-filtration water treatment plant. The device is an accessory piece of equipment for the traditional Phipps & Bird JarTest Stirrer with Square B-KER2s (not included)
After water samples are agitated through the flash and flocculation stages, the samples are allowed to gravity drain through filter columns producing a simulated "clean" water test sample. A water line from the plant's service line can be connected to the device to backwash the filter columns when loading the granular media or when cleaning the media after a test procedure.
The device consists of a number (4 or 6) of filter columns (2" ID clear PVC) and sets of valves to control the flow of water samples from the sample B-KER2s and service water during the backwash process. All components are mounted on a portable rack with casters. The CFS mounted on the portable rack can be used in the lab or moved to a more convenient location within the treatment plant.
