Design of a Model Filtration System and Performing CFD/ Floxpress Analysis on It

Ing. Daniel Kweku Govi, Paul Goddey G


With regard to earlier experiment conducted to determine the characteristics of diluted waste water, a confirmation was obtained experienced by the levels shown using the litmus paper. This then provided a basis for the design of the filtration system which was simulated to ascertain its suitability. This can be said by “drink a minimum of two litres or eight glasses of 8 liquid ounces daily” is a statement with which we are all familiar; it is the recommendation by the UK Food Standard Agency (FSA), corroborated by the US-EPA (UKFSA 2002, & USEPA, 1945).  In the high-pressure pipeline, the water energy may dissipate after flowing through the channels and the flow rate can be controlled to meet the water need of the life. To ensure the emitter’s hydraulic performance, before the fabrication of emitter, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is used to predict emitter’s flow rate and analyze its hydraulic performance under various water pressures. The quality of the emitter has an important effect on the reliability, life span of the drip irrigation system and irrigation quality. Usually, the structure of the emitter channel is very complex with a dimension. A CFD/FloXpress analysis was carried out to determine the suitability of the filtration system while analysis of filtered water also confirmed that, production of the filters could help in enhancing the purification of the diluted Chemu lagoon and similar water system( Ing. Govi and Gablah, 2015).
