Solids Management

Xylem Solution: Solids Management

Solids residuals in water treatment plants include inorganic materials such as sand, silt, clay, and metals as well as organic such as flocculated colloids and other compounds.  These are the most common pollutants in water treatment plants, with residuals grouped into two main types: suspended solids and dissolved solids. Mechanical separation can remove suspended solids, while dissolved solids typically pass through a mechanical filter.  Once these solids are removed from the raw intake water through clarification, they must be dealt with, called solids management.
