Improve the capture of small particles.
Solids capture is one of the most important processes in a recirculating system. Although sedimentation/settling basins are generally effective for settleable solids larger than 80 microns, space constraints may render them impractical.
If this is your situation, then an expanded granular biofilter (EGB), specifically, a bead filter, may be the best alternative, as it reduces the retention time and improves the capture of small particles.
These bead filters can provide both filtration and biofiltration in a single device.
These bead filters employ low-density polyethylene beads (included) for their filter media in a pressurized up-flow configuration. The filter physically traps suspended solids while providing a large surface area for the growth of bacteria.
Propeller-Washed Bead Filter
Heavy duty, made from food grade fiberglass, this filter will give dependable fresh or saltwater service for many years. Designed for larger recirculating aquaculture systems, the propeller-washed bead filters are easy to clean, easily automated, compact and very energy efficient. Internal beads are cleaned by a motor-driven propeller. Prop wash models available with higher pressure capacity. Please inquire. Made in USA. One-year warranty.
