Description of van der Waals forces and hydrodynamic forces acting in filter; formulation of dimensionless group, known as adhesion criterion, that includes parameters affecting removal of suspended particles by filter; if hydrodynamic characteristics of filter and information for aluminum and ferric hydroxide flocs are given, reduction in suspended solids concentration can be calculated for filter of any media-grading and of any given depth.
