Subject field(s)

  • Water Treatment (Water Supply)
  • Wastewater Treatment
CONT

"Bulk solids efflux capacity in flooded and streaming gravity flow", Proceedings of the International Fluidization Conference, California, June 15-20 (1975).

CONT

FORAGER® Sponge - Type M. For the removal of heavy metal and inorganic contaminants ... the Sponge can be utilized in columns, fishnet-type enclosures, or rotating drums, and is relatively unaffected by suspended matter. In column operations, flow rates of three bed volumes/minute can be obtained at hydrostatic pressures only two feet above the bed, and without additional pressurization. Sponge-packed columns are therefore suitable for gravity flow applications.

OBS

The washing column is of the fluidized bed type. It is placed higher than the fixing column A so that the suspension of washed resin can flow back by gravity.
