Observe the effect of feedwater turbidity and biological growths on head loss development, and the variation of backwash efficiency with time. Bossy and Sanchez25 attributed such variations to changes in carbon density and particle size. However, washwater temperature is probably the most significant factor affecting bed expansion during backwashing. As noted above, backwashing can adversely affect carbon utilisation as it tends to disrupt the adsorption front. 24 Given the required data, the choice between systems and surface loadings is principally economic, taking into account capital costs (number and size of adsorbers and pumps), carbon utilisation, and power costs (related to pressure drop and backwash requirements).

Yorkshire Water Authority, Leeds, UK SUMMARY The use of activated carbon for municipal water treatment continues to grow as water quality standards are raised and polluted sources are increasingly drawn on.

It is inevitable that during the upflow washing the arrangement of carbon particles in the bed is somewhat altered. This tends to disrupt the desirable adsorption profile in which the relative exhaustion of the carbon varies inversely with distance from the bed inlet. Adsorption efficiency and the operating life of a bed could therefore be significantly reduced. However, there are a number of plants where, for speed and cheapness of installation, carbon has been substituted for sand in existing rapid gravity filters; some reported results are reviewed below.
