Contamination concentrations behind water traps

Start date: Apr 1st, 2017
Finish date: May 1st, 2018

The purpose of the project is to investigate the effect of ventilating the contamination concentration in waste water pipes and behind water traps. The idea of ventilating the waste water pipe is to dilute the contamination in order to reduce the concentrations that occur in waste water pipes. To further support the investigations of the dynamic in the system, measurements in the waste water pipe is carried out with different spacing behind the water traps, e.g. right behind the water traps, 1 m, 2 m and 3 m behind the water traps depending on how far back it is possible to measure.
