9.33 An experiment was performed on a trickling filter for the purpose of determining the overall mass transfer coefficient. Raw sewage with zero dissolved oxygen was introduced at the top of the filter and allowed to flow down the bed. A tracer was also introduced at the top to determine how long it takes for the sewage to trickle down the bed. At the bottom, the resulting DO was then measured. From this experiment, the overall mass transfer coefficient (KLa)w was found to be 2.53 per hour. This information is then used to design another trickling filter. The j of the waste = 0.9 and the respiration rate r = 1.0 mg/L • hr. Assume the average temperature in the filter is 25°C and the effluent should have a DO = 1.0 mg/L. What void volume should be provided in the interstices of the bed to effect this detention time? The inflow rate is 10,000 m /d. The detention time of the sewage in the proposed filter to effect this DO at the effluent of 1.0 mg/L is calculated to be 0.06 hour.
