Mechanical and active carbon filtration
The company’s expertise in the selection and application of sorbents in physical and complex (biosorption) systems can help solve the challenges of cleaning polluted water in industry and technological processes, expanding the possibilities of water reuse. Properly selected sorbents or their systems can remove various types of pollutants from water, including priority substances found in very small quantities, but causing considerable concern during both industrial and domestic polluted water treatment.
Activated carbon filters
The ratio of removing the efficiency of organic compounds to their price is the main advantage of adsorption filters compared to other filtration solutions. Activated carbon effectively removes pharmaceutical compounds, phthalates, pesticides, herbicides, chlorides, and phosphates from the water. During adsorption, organic compounds are sorbed from water and the concentration of toxic compounds in water is reduced. Also, watercolor and unpleasant tastes and smells are eliminated. Bio-activated carbon reactors can be offered to companies or domestic wastewater treatment plants. If necessary, PVC granules and other types of charges can be offered for adsorption filters, which have specific advantages and can be applied in individual cases.
Activated carbon alone loses its adsorptive properties relatively quickly but can be effectively used in combination with activated sludge microorganisms in a reactor. Activated sludge microorganisms attach to activated carbon by forming a biofilm, which helps to maintain the adsorptive properties of the carbon over a longer period. Activated carbon pores are a favorable place for microorganisms to feed and grow, thus synchronizing the physical and biological processes of pollutant removal – biosorption. This avoids frequent regeneration of activated carbon – less frequent charge changes in the reactor reduce operational costs.
