Abstract: Nozzle filtration can be considered as a major pre-treatment process for water and waste water, since they efficiency separate fine solids particles over prolonged periods without addition of chemicals. Proper nozzle performance can reduce operating costs, reduce maintenance costs, and improve cleaning quality. this review article summarized and evaluates modification to nozzle filtration technology .achieved results in this study shows that nozzle filtration may be considered as efficient pre-treatment process incase surface water is used as water supply. With pass of muddy water sample due to current rainfall in stilling basin of Toroq water treatment plant from nozzle filters in laboratory pilot, Turbidity Removal efficiency and also Suspended solids equal 9.6% and 86% respectively was obtained .And the results of Additional tests represent that Turbidity Removal and also solid suspensions efficiency by nozzle filters due to algae making inlet water to Toroq water treatment plant in warm seasons is 4/6% and 47% respectively The obtained results of the study indicate that use nozzle filters caused Increase the efficiency of the process water treatment, and it is prevents from emergency exits the Toroq water treatment plant.
