AquaPrime® Cloth Media Filter for Primary FiltrationJosh Price
Primary filtration is an emerging technology in wastewater treatment. Many plants are using it to completely replace conventional primary clarifiers, thereby reducing the organic load to the secondary treatment process, saving energy, and increasing plant capacity.
Aqua-Aerobic’s AquaPrime® filters remove biological oxygen demand (BOD5) and volatile suspended solids (VSS) from raw wastewater, reducing activated sludge loading and increasing gas production in anaerobic digesters.
Wastewater treatment plants often need to increase treatment capacity but have limited space to install additional processes or equipment. The AquaPrime® filter can be a solution to this problem because it has a much smaller footprint than rectangular or circular clarifiers.
The AquaPrime® cloth media filter uses vertical disks with OptiFiber® pile cloth media to filter solids-laden wastewater without chemicals. The AquaPrime® is ideal for primary wastewater treatment due to its proven removal efficiencies and high-quality effluent, even under varying influent conditions.
- Reduced energy costs in the secondary process due to a lower organic load
- Small footprint saves space
- Re-directs organic load to anaerobic digesters for increased gas production
- Improved effluent quality
- No chemicals required
- Low total cost of ownership
PILOT TEST SYSTEMS
AquaPrime® pilot units are available to demonstrate the process at your facility, allowing you to validate performance, interact with the technology, and optimize the design.
Aqua-Aerobic’s application engineers will evaluate your project and develop the testing protocol to collect the data needed to provide you with comprehensive on-site testing and field data. In addition, Aqua-Aerobic’s pilot units offer prompt operational feedback, allowing immediate fine-tuning of operating parameters for the most effective pilot/demonstration experience.
