BIOFILTERS FOR BACTERIAL BEDS AND MBBR
Water, our environment
Biofilters, also known as Trickling Filters, are the most traditional variant within the biofilm processes used for biological waste water treatment.
It is an aerobic process in which the waste water, after having been subjected to prior treatment (pre-treatment and primary treatment), percolates by gravity through a filling material, which constitutes the support material upon which the microorganisms develop and grow, forming a biofilm of variable thickness. The filler material is fixed inside the reactor and has a high specific surface area.
The material that is mainly used as support material in the Bacterial Beds is plastic material with various configurations, either loose pieces arranged in the reactor at random, or modules structured in an orderly fashion to form the bed.
