Radioactive labeling and automatic digital computation were used in experimental study of new theory of rapid filtration and filter design; in studies, algae Chlorella and Scenedesmus were made radioactive and suspensions of these algae were filtered through sand column; distributions of algae in filter pores were measured with scintillation counter.
