Abstract:
ABSTRACT Filtration is a separating process between solids and fluid, either liquid or gas, using a porous medium or other permeable materials. Filtration is used to remove the suspended solids and colloids as much as possible. In filtration process, water seeps and passes through the filter medium. The suspended solids will be accumulated on the surface of filter and collected throughout the depth of the medium. Quartz sand is an excellent medium for water filtration. In this research, Malimpung quartz sand was used as the single filter medium. The sand comes from Malimpung, Pinrang, South Sulawesi Province, Indonesia. The purposes of this research are to analyze the performance of a single-medium water filtration using Malimpung quartz sand. The experiment method consists of two stages. Firstly, testing of the sand whether meets the filter medium standard or not. It was performed at the Soil Mechanics Laboratory of Hasanuddin University. Secondly, testing of the sand in a filtration apparatus with diameter of grain: 0.4 [mm] ~ 0.8 [mm] and thickness of medium filter: 50 [cm], 60 [cm], and 70 [cm]. The results showed that the Malimpung quartz sand meets the standard of filter medium with value of Uc as 1.7 and Gs as 2.66 [gr/cm3]. The output discharge was bigger than the calculated Darcy discharge and the clearing of turbidity achieved was 94.9%. Keywords: quartz sand, filtration, performance, grain diameter.
