2.2.2. Submerged, Aerated Filters

The amount of microorganisms decides the removal rate in treatment plants. An increase of microorganisms can be achieved by installing BIO-BLOK®. By applying the BIO-BLOK® products, a large surface will be established on which the microorganisms fix. Thus the amount of microorganisms in the treatment plants increases, hence removal rates and plant capacity increase significantly.

Advantages:
  *   Cheap and fast installation by means of submerged aeration pallets
  * The efficiency in a treatment plant can increase by up to 400% without extending the reactor volume
  * By applying submerged aeration pallets, control is ensures and replacement of air diffusers can easily be done without interrupting the treatment plant
  * The fixed film technology ensures stable operation, tolerates large fluctuations in load, and is less sensitive towards acute toxic shocks

 

Fields of application:
  *   New treatment plants
  * Increase of treatment capacity in existing treatment plants
  * Improvement of operation and treatment processes in existing treatment plants
  * Small modular treatment units from 5 PE and up
  * Treatment plants for industries, recycling, and pre-treatment
