MBBR - Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor from H+E


MBBR - Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor from H+E

Proven and powerful for maximum loads

BIOFIT®.H is a well-proven, robust moving bed process for the biological pre-treatment of highly contaminated wastewater, especially from the paper industry, if anaerobic treatment is not an option. This process is also recommended for other sources of highly polluted wastewater such as those produced in the petrochemical and food industries.

BIOFIT®.H is ideally used before activated sludge treatment.

BIOFIT®.H can handle pollution levels up to 100 kilograms chemical oxygen demand (COD) per cubic metre per day. The carrier system used ensures that far more bio-active sludge is present than is normal, resulting in a faster degradation rate compared to other available technologies. BIOFIT®.H can be fitted into more or less any existing vessel, regardless of its shape, to provide a highly efficient wastewater treatment plant upgrade.

BIOFIT®.H systems incorporate a number of individual products, all developed by H+E, that mesh with each other perfectly to provide a highly-efficient system as a whole.

The carriers provide the biofilm supporting structure for the organisms that actually degrade the pollutants. They have to be designed not to clog, and also to remain mechanically sound in the long-term, so that the biomass settles on them and grows safely. The C1 carrier from H+E meets these particular requirements perfectly

A powerful aeration system can contribute significantly to efficient heavy-duty operation and must run without any major maintenance for years on end. In this, the AEROFIT®.V system from H+E has been proven to fully fulfil these requirements.

An airlift system is used at regular intervals to free the carriers from debris and clogging and keep the biofilm on the carriers operating at peak performance. H+E uses its own components, developed in-house for this purpose, to ensure gentle and efficient cleaning of the carriers. .

Lastly, a well-proven restraint grid system secures the carriers within the treatment vessel, thereby ensuring that the biofilm stays in the vessel. This restraint system is designed so that it will not clog during long-term operation.
