Filtration is an effective process in removing particles of various nature and sizes that are present in water and wastewater. It has been used as a final clarifying step in water treatment since the19th century. It is becoming increasingly important in the tertiary treatment step of wastewater to produce effluent of superior quality for the purpose of reuse. Filtration is particularly applied when high flow rates of water with relatively low contents of suspended solids have to be treated. In a conventional water or wastewater treatment system, the filters are usually placed after sedimentation units to remove suspended particles, which escape without settling in the sedimentation units. When chemically pretreated and flocculated water is applied to a filter without a prior-solid liquid separation it is called direct filtration.
