The study characterizes some of the filter aids suitable for water filtration in terms of those physical characteristics related to their effectiveness in the filtration process. The important physical characteristics of a filter aid include particle size and shape, and the volume of voids in the cake as it is formed on a filter septum for use in filtration.
