  • Subject: Ceramic pot filters | Household water treatment and safe storage | Flow rate

<p>Ceramic pot filters are considered safe, robust and appropriate technologies, but there is a general consensus that water revenues are limited due to clogging of the ceramic element. The objective of this study was to investigate the potential of high flow ceramic po... View more
