1.1 This practice covers the procedure used to perform
pressure in-line coagulation-flocculation-filtration of water and
wastewater. It is applicable to water and wastewater with
relatively low suspended solids (<30 mg/L). The practice is
applicable for any size filter greater than 100 mm (4 in.) in
1.2 This practice can be used to determine the effectiveness
of flocculants or coagulants, or both, and filter medium(a) in
removing suspended and colloidal material from water and
1.3 Interval between filter backwashing, backwash requirements, rinse requirements, and effect of filtration rate on
effluent quality can also be obtained with this practice.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the
safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the
responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
