Bioclere™
Bioclere waste water treatment

Wastewater Treatment Systems

Bioclere is a modified trickling filter over a clarifier that is designed to treat wastewater with varying organic and nutrient concentrations. It's natural fixed film biological treatment process is resilient, flexible, compact and simple to operate. The modular units can be installed in parallel to treat large flows or in series to achieve high levels of treatment.

FEATURES

  • Treats flows from 200 to 100,000 gpd
  • Low maintenance costs
  • Low energy usage
  • Small footprint
  • Modular design enables phased construction
  • Durable fiberglass construction
  • Sealed and insulated for seasonal conditions
  • Internal gravity flow system
  • Remote monitoring controls


BENEFITS

nc wastewater treatment

Stable & Resilient Biological Process
Bioclere can accommodate intermittent flows, extreme temperature variations and fluctuations in organic loading.

Nitrogen Conversion & Reduction
Bioclere systems can be designed to effectively reduce ammonia-N, nitrate-N and total nitrogen concentrations.

Minimal Sludge Production
Biological fixed films are known for their extensive microbial communities that enable efficient digestion and mineralization of sludge.

Self Regulating / Purging Biological Filter
Bioclere media beds do not require replacement or cleaning. The media is constructed of UV resistant durable plastic giving it an indefinite lifespan. Biomass naturally sloughs off of the media and regenerates itself eliminating the need to manually clean or backwash the filter.

Extended Leach Field Life
Bioclere reduces BOD and TSS concentrations by 85% to 99% which preserves the life of a leach field indefinitely.

AquaCELL™ & AquaFAS™
Wastewater Treatment Systems

Aquapoint’s AquaCELL (MBBR) and AquaFAS (IFAS) technologies are fixed film biological wastewater treatment processes in which thousands of submerged polyethylene (HDPE) biofilm carriers operate in motion within an aerated or mixed basin. Each carrier element incorporates multiple cells of protected surface area to sustain a dense community of attached growth microorganisms. As the neutrally buoyant carriers move throughout the water column, oxygen and organic/inorganic material is available to the biofilm which absorbs, oxidizes and reduces these pollutants thus providing treatment. The dense population of bacteria provides high-rate productivity, enhanced nitrification/denitrification, process stability, reduced footprint and ease of operation.

FEATURES

  • Treats flows from 0.001 to 2 MGD
  • Small footprints
  • Cold climate nitrification/denitrification
  • Capable of treating high strength and industrial wastewater
  • Steel (carbon or stainless), fiberglass or concrete vessels
  • Above ground or at grade installations
  • Cost effective retrofits and upgrades
  • Complete new build modular WWTPs
  • UV resistant HDPE biofilm carriers
  • Minimal O&M requirements
  • Remote monitoring controls



AquaCELL (MBBR)


Moving Bed Bioreactor (MBBR) Configuration
Aqua Cell Waste Water Treatment

This one pass process does not require management of MLSS, F/M ratios or return activated sludge (RAS)

Minimal Maintenance

Self purging and naturally responsive to fluctuations in organic loading

Process Stability

Resilient in toxic shock loading and extreme temperature conditions

Versatile Fixed-Film Technology

MBBRs can be the core treatment process or used for aerobic preconditioning, polishing, tertiary anoxic denitrification and more...

Ideal Applications Include

Industrial and high strength waste streams - roughing reactors - tertiary denitrification reactors - sites requiring minimal management and oversight - lagoon, oxidation ditch and RBC upgrades - cold climate nitrification/denitrification - slow build out developments (will perform at a very small fraction of design flow).



AquaFAS (IFAS)


Integrated Fixed-Film Activated Sludge (IFAS)

Incorporates biofilm carriers in a conventional activated sludge process where MLSS, F/M and RAS must be managed

Compact Designs

Roughly 1/4 the footprint of conventional systems

Enhanced Nutrient Removal (ENR)

Ideal for new or existing activated sludge facilities requiring substantial nitrification and/or denitrification

Cost Effective Retrofits

Upgrade the capacity and/or performance of existing facilities for pennies per gallon with out adding O&M requirements

Ideal Applications Include

Sites requiring high levels of nitrification/denitrification - activated sludge plant retrofits and upgrades - sites with limited space or aesthetic concerns - projects with budget constrains.
