Sedimentation decantation and filtration of water
sedimentation and decantation - when the heavier components in a mixture settels down after water is added to it the processis called sedimentation. when the water along with the dust is removed the process is calleddecantation. filtration-it is a processby which solid wastesof larger size can be seperated from the thishouseismyhome.com using filter/5(55). - Winnowing is used to separate heavier and lighter components of a mixture by the wind or by blowing air. - By sieving and filtration, particles of different sizes are separated. - When the heavier component of a mixture settles after water is added to it, the process is called sedimentation. Sedimentation (water treatment) Jump to navigation Jump to search. Sedimentation is a physical water treatment process using gravity to remove suspended solids from water. Solid particles entrained by the turbulence of moving water may be removed naturally by sedimentation in the still water .
