Hydraulic Loading of the Filter Calculator

Posted by Dinesh on

Use the simple trickling filters calculator tool to calculate the hydraulic loading of the filter for your wastewater problems. For plastic media trickling filters, the hydraulic loading ranges from 0.2 to 1.20 gal/min.sq.ft (0.14 to 0.82 L/s.m2).

Hydraulic Loading of the Filter Calculation

Influent wastewater hydraulic loading rate (gal/min.sq ft) (L/s.m2) :
Area of filter [A] (sq.ft) (m2) :
Hydraulic Loading :


Hydraulic loading = (Q) / (A)

  • Q - influent wastewater hydraulic loading rate
  • A - Area of filter
