AquaDisk

The AquaDisk® cloth media filter is the leading tertiary filter on the market today. Treatment is accomplished in three simple phases with use of the exclusive OptiFiber® cloth media, reducing phosphorus and capable of producing reuse quality effluent.

Filter Mode - Inlet wastewater enters the tank or basin, completely submerging the cloth media. By gravity, liquid passes through the cloth media. As solids accumulate on and within the media, a mat is formed and the liquid level in the tank or basin increases. The filtered liquid enters the internal portion of the disk where it is directed to final discharge through the center shaft.

Backwash Mode - At a predetermined level or time, the backwash cycle will be initiated. Solids are backwashed from the surface by liquid suction from both sides of each disk. During backwash, disks are cleaned in multiples of two, unless a single disk unit is utilized. Disks rotate slowly, allowing each segment to be cleaned. Backwash water is directed to the headworks. Filtration is not interrupted during this cycle.

Solids Wasting Mode - The filtration process requires no moving parts. Heavier solids are allowed to settle to the bottom portion of the filter tank. These solids are then pumped on an intermittent basis back to the headworks, digester or other solids collection area of the treatment plant.


AquaPrime

The AquaPrime cloth media filtration system is designed as an economical and efficient solution for the treatment of primary wastewater and wet weather applications. This system utilizes a disk configuration and the exclusive OptiFiber PF-14® pile cloth filtration media to effectively filter high solids waste streams without the use of chemicals. This system is ideal for primary wastewater treatment and wet weather applications due to its proven removal efficiencies and high quality effluent, even under varying influent conditions.

The AquaPrime system is designed to handle a wide range of flows in a fraction of space compared to conventional primary clarifiers. The system’s high solids removal in comparison to conventional treatment provides energy and operational savings within the wastewater treatment plant due to reduced loads to the secondary process or more solids for anaerobic digestion (energy harvesting).

Aqua MegaDisk

The Aqua MegaDisk® tertiary filter “expands” on the reliability and exceptional performance of the original AquaDisk® filter, but on a larger scale. The Aqua MegaDisk offers larger diameter disks and fewer mechanical components than the AquaDisk filter. The result is the smallest footprint available, operating in 80% less space than sand filters with comparable hydraulic capacity.

Aqua MiniDisk

Aqua-Aerobic Systems is well-known throughout the wastewater treatment industry for its complete line of pile cloth media filtration systems including the original AquaDisk® and AquaDiamond® filters. The tradition continues with the Aqua MiniDisk® filter featuring OptiFiber® pile cloth media. This filter is designed to provide economical treatment of smaller flows with the added advantage of retrofitting existing traveling bridge sand filters.

AquaDiamond

The AquaDiamond® cloth media filter is a unique combination of two proven technologies; traveling bridge and cloth media filters. The result is two to three times the flow capacity of a traveling bridge filter within an equivalent footprint, making it ideal for sand filter retrofits.


AquaDrum

Aqua-Aerobic Systems is well-known throughout the wastewater treatment industry for its complete lineof pile cloth media filtration systems including the original AquaDisk® and AquaDiamond® filters. The tradition continues with the AquaDrum filter featuring OptiFiber® pile cloth media. This filter is designed to provide economical treatment of smaller flows, particularly where driving head is limited. The AquaDrum filter can be utilized for any tertiary treatment application.


AquaMB Process

The AquaMB Process® is a multiple barrier system that integrates biological treatment and clarification with dual barrier filtration consisting of cloth media and external membrane separation. It is ideal for wastewater plants that require optimum performance and flexibility at the lowest cost of ownership. Compared to multiple unit processes and membrane bioreactor (MBRs), the AquaMB Process offers numerous advantages with the added benefit of single source responsibility.
