Trickling Filters. Instructor's Guide. Biological Treatment Process Control.
Richwine, Reynold D.
This instructor's guide contains materials needed for teaching a two-lesson unit on trickling filters. These materials include: (1) an overview of the two lessons; (2) lesson plans; (3) lecture outline (keyed to a set of slides accompanying the unit); (4) overhead transparency masters; (5) student worksheet (with answers); and (6) two copies of a final quiz (with and without answers). The first lesson (structure and theory) covers an introduction to trickling filters, components, modes of operation, and the microbiology of trickling filters (emphasizing the factors that affect growth). The second lesson covers the operation of trickling filters. The laboratory tests recommended for influent and effluent monitoring are presented and related to the factors affecting biomass growth. Calculations regarding loading, recirculation, and efficiency are presented and practiced. Plant observation and monitoring is discussed with an emphasis on awareness and identification of existing and potential problems. Finally, a number of operational problems are presented with recommended corrective measures. (JN)
