What is the difference between multi grade filter and dual media filter?..

Answer / kamlesh dhatrak

Multigrade Sand Filter also consist of a vertical or
horizontal pressure vessel with a set of frontal pipe work
and valves, media consist of different sizes and grade mixed
and supported by layers of pebbles and gravels, a top
distributor to distribute the incoming water uniformly
throughout the cross section of the filter, and an under
drain system to collect filtered water.

This filter performs at a substantially higher specific flow
rate than conventional filters. The basic difference between
Pressure Sand Filter (PSF) and Multigrade Sand Filter (MGF)
are media used in vessel and velocity variation.

Dual media filter contain anthracite in combination with
sand supported by pebble and gravels. Theses filter consist
of a layer of anthracite (1.25-2.5mm) resting on a layer of
fine sand (1-1.5mm) Anthracite is coarse and has more dirt
holding capacity as compared to sand.

In a furnace, 2 chemical reactions are happening – 1 mole of solid carbon reacts with 1 mole of oxygen gas to generate 1 mole of carbon dioxide gas; 1 mole of solid carbon reacts with 0.5 mole of oxygen gas to generate 1 mole of carbon monoxide gas. In a given process, 100 kmol of carbon is burned in a furnace. (a) Calculate the theoretical oxygen gas needed by assuming that all the carbon is burned completely to carbon dioxide gas. (b) Calculate the theoretical air needed by assuming that all the carbon is burned completely to carbon dioxide gas and there is only 21 % of oxygen gas. (c) Determine the amount of air required (in kmol) if 50 % excess oxygen gas must be satisfied for (a) and (b). (d) It has latter been found that 20 % of the carbon undergoes incomplete combustion resulting to carbon monoxide gas production. The rest of the carbon undergoes complete combustion. Calculate the total oxygen gas required stoichiometrically based on the actual process.

The water is superheated steam at 440 degree Celsius and 17.32 megapascals. Estimate the enthalpy of the steam above. From the steam table for water at 440 degree Celsius, enthalpy of steam, h at 18 megapascals is 3103.7 kilojoules per kilogram and at 16 megapascal is 3062.8 kilojoules per kilogram. Assume that h = mP c where P is pressure; m and c are constants at fixed temperature with small differences in P.
