Particle shape of wastewater effluents were investigated by implementing a dynamic particle image analyzer which provided data on the particle count, size, shape and circularity concurrently with images. The goals of this study were to characterize removal efficiency based on size and shape parameters for an in-line filtration process and to study correlation between size and shape parameters. Results showed that filter removal efficiency can be determined by various size and shape parameters, where different information is obtained for each analysis. This method has potential in evaluating treatment process efficiencies by coupling size and shape parameters into a meaningful tool.
