Description

The primary focus of my research is to understand what iscausing air bubbles, through air binding in the Water Supply and Treatments filtration system.Air binding is the clogging of a filter as a result of the presence of air released from water. Aircan prevent the passage of water during the filtration process causing a high loss of head and alower service time for the filter. It is hypothesized that the air binding issue is due to a low piperetention time as well as an excess amount of carbon dioxide. There are a few known causes ofair binding such as ozonation, Carbon Dioxide addition, hypochlorite, thermal warming etc.
