With 20 years of tertiary wastewater process application experience, Aqua-Aerobic Systems’ cloth media filtration is a pioneer in wastewater treatment. The new AquaPrime provides an efficient and economical treatment solution for both primary and wet weather wastewater applications. The new AquaPrime has demonstrated the ability to accommodate large hydraulic throughput, high solids loading capacity, exceptional effluent quality and a small footprint. With over 1,500 installations, the proof is in the pudding.
The AquaPrime system utilises a disk configuration paired with OptiFiber® cloth media filtration. This configuration enables the system to effectively filter screened, de-gritted, raw municipal sewage. This technology has been proven to easily handle 3 to 5 times higher solids loading rates than secondary clarified effluent, and has the added ability to sustain a low TSS concentration. These features make it an ideal solution for both wet weather treatment and primary treatment in lieu of conventional sedimentation systems.
The AquaPrime system efficiently operates in a footprint less than 10% of conventional primary settling basins. This offers the added advantage of improved gas production (energy harvesting) in the anaerobic digestion system, due to a significant reduction in BOD5 and COD values in the measured organic values. The AquaPrime cloth media filtration system consistently produces, high quality effluent under typically variable primary and wet weather influent conditions.
