Longitudinal Flow

A flow pattern in which water travels from the bottom to top (or vice versa) in either a cartridge-type or loose media tank-type filtration system.

The advantages are greater contact time, higher unit capacity, more complete utilization of medium, and more uniform water quality.

Also called axial flow.
