Abstract

In this paper a dispersed flow model previously developed to study substrate utilization in biological filters was experimentally verified. For this purpose, flow measurements were made and the importance of the change in fluid regime as regards to the simultaneous transport and reaction within biological filters has been demonstrated. The effect of drop formation and breakage of liquid jets inside the filter upon the substrate utilization was also shown.
