The Fox Metro Water Reclamation District evaluated, installed, and successfully tested cloth media filtration in a diamond configuration in existing traveling bridge sand filter tanks. The conversion to the cloth media diamond filters increased the flow capacity of three existing sand filters basins from 79,485 m3/day (21 MGD) to 272,520 m3/day (72 MGD). The diamond filter builds on cloth media filtration technology originally proven in disk filter configurations. The cloth media filter also demonstrated the ability to handle influent solids concentrations up to 140 mg/l under certain flow conditions. The ability to achieve the high flow and influent solids concentrations in the existing tanks saved site space and construction costs.
