Today’s drinking water plants have many challenges to meet as they produce water for a fast-growing and increasingly demanding population. They must satisfy regulatory agency requirements, address health concerns, and ultimately fill the end customer’s needs by producing very high quality water in an economically feasible manner. To meet these challenges, total optimization of the drinking water plant must be achieved. A key process for optimization is filter backwash.
This application note covers issues associated with monitoring the turbidity during a filter backwash cycle including:
