Last of the Neglected Treatment Processes: Rewriting the Manual of Practice No. 8 Section on Grit Removal
Abstract:The combination of a number of factors, including lack of focus on the grit removal processes by design professionals and the increasing innovation in grit removal equipment by equipment manufacturers in recent years, resulted in the need to make significant revisions and corrections to the guidance on grit removal processes provided in the 5th and latest edition of the WEF Manual of Practice No. 8, Design of Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plants. While many aspects of the design of grit removal facilities remain in need of further study and optimization, the last of the neglected treatment processes now appears to be getting the attention it deserves, and these advances are summarized in this paper.
