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.
Inlet wastewater enters the filter by gravity via the Influent Channel. Stationary Cloth Media Disks are completely submerged. Wastewater flows through the Cloth Media Disks as solids are retained and stored within the depth of the pile cloth. Gravity conveys the filtrate, collected in the hollow center tube, to the Effluent Channel. Heavier solids settle to the tank bottom
Cloth Media Disks are automatically backwashed clean. Disks rotate slowly for cleaning as filtration continues uninterrupted. Backwash Shoes contact the cloth media directly and solids are removed by vacuum pressure from the Backwash/Solids Pump. Backwash water is redirected to the headworks.
The cloth media “Disk” configuration as an alternative to conventional granular media filtration technologies. Each disk has six lightweight, removable segments for ease of maintenance. Low hydraulic profile. Low backwash rate.
The modular design of the Aqua MiniDisk filter retrofits neatly into existing 9 ft. (2.74 m) wide concrete traveling bridge filter basins, providing more than two times the hydraulic capacity of the original sand filters.
The AquaPrime cloth media filtration system is designed as an economical and efficient solution for the treatment of primary wastewater and wet weather applications. Specifically designed floatable and solids removal zones.
