This project developed and tested a new filtration device. During this project variables such as compaction of the media and different media type all affected the outcome of the testing. These variables were not accounted for therefore some results were surprising. Additionally, the canister holding the media needed modification for less head loss. In the end, after making the necessary adjustments the unit worked similarly as planned. However, the pressure loss of the unit was higher than anticipated.
