<emphasis role="bold">SOLIDS CHARACTERISTICS</emphasis>
<emphasis role="bold">SOLIDS CHARACTERISTICS</emphasis>When designing solids-handling facilities (e.g., conveyance, conditioning, and thickening or dewatering systems), engineers must know the characteristics and volumes of the solids involved. There are several types of solids (e.g., primary, secondary, mixed primary, chemical, and biosolids), and their characteristics depend on many factors (e.g., the percentage of industrial wastes, ground garbage, and sidestreams in wastewater; the use of chemical precipitants and coagulants; process control; peak loads and weather conditions; and the treatment process chosen).There also are numerous…
