Investigation of the Critical Parameters in the Production of Ceramic Water Filters

Isabelle Gensburger

October 2011

The flow rate can be increased by:
1. increasing the porosity of the filter, by increasing the quantity of burn-out material in the clay mix; and
2. increasing the pore size, either by

changing the particle size distribution of the burnout material, or by

changing the maximum firing temperature.

The bacteria removal effectiveness is only compromised when increasing the pore size
