RESIDUAL POLLUTANT [1 record]

Record 1 1982-03-18

English

Subject field(s)
  • Water Pollution
OBS

The use of activated carbon in a filter bed can be likened to extraction in a multiple-plate column. Hence, water containing a very small quantity of residual pollutants can be obtained. This technique is therefore particularly well suited to final treatment.

French

Domaine(s)
  • Pollution de l'eau
OBS

L'utilisation du charbon actif en lit filtrant correspond à une extraction sur colonne à plateaux multiples. On peut ainsi obtenir une eau ayant une fuite de polluants résiduels très faible. Cette technique d'emploi est donc particulièrement bien adaptée à la finition d'un traitement.
