Filter Leaf. Operational Control Tests for Wastewater Treatment Facilities. Instructor's Manual [and] Student Workbook.
Wooley, John F.
In the operation of vacuum filters and belt filters, it is desirable to evaluate the performance of different types of filter media and conditioning processes. The filter leaf test, which is used to evaluate these items, is described. Designed for individuals who have completed National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) level 1 laboratory training skills, this module provides waste water treatment plant operators with the basic skills and information needed to: (1) successfully run the filter leaf test; (2) accurately record data and observations; (3) organize data to perform the required calculations for the test; (4) make general interpretations as to the quality of the sludge used in the test and of the media used on the filter; and (5) obtain reliable and consistent results. The instructor's manual contains a statement of instructional goals, lists of instructor/student activities and instructional materials, overhead transparency masters of filter leaf apparatus, and student worksheet (with answers). The student workbook contains objectives, prerequisite skills needed before the module is started, laboratory procedures, and worksheet. (Author/JN)
