A Laboratory Investigation of the Hydraulic Performance of String-Wound Filters
The present work focuses on the filtration of drinking water with string-wound filter cartridges. The presence of filtration devices may have consequences on networks operating under low pressures. Results consisting of pressure drop curves obtained from measures taken on a pilot plant located at the Laboratory of Environmental and Maritime Hydraulics (LIDAM), University of Salerno, are discussed.
