Hydraulic retention time

Hydraulic retention time

The Hydraulic retention time (HRT) is a measure of the average length of time that a soluble compound remains in a constructed reactor.

HRT = Volume of aeration tank/influent flowrate

In which 'Volume is in m3' SI unit and 'Influent flowrate is in m3/h' SI unit
