Aqua MegaDisk®

Cloth Media Filter with OptiFiber®

The Aqua MegaDisk® tertiary filter “expands” on the reliability and exceptional performance of the original AquaDisk® filter, but on a larger scale. The Aqua MegaDisk offers larger diameter disks and fewer mechanical components than the AquaDisk filter. The result is the smallest footprint available, operating in 80% less space than sand filters with comparable hydraulic capacity.

 

Aqua MegaDisk™ Operation

 

Filtration Mode

• Inlet wastewater enters the filter by gravity via the Influent Channel

• Stationary Cloth Media Disks are completely submerged

• Wastewater flows through the Cloth Media Disks as solids are retained and stored within the depth of the pile cloth

• Gravity conveys the filtrate, collected in the hollow center tube, to the Effluent Channel

• Heavier solids settle to the tank bottom

 

Backwash Mode

• Cloth Media Disks are automatically backwashed clean

• Disks rotate slowly for cleaning as filtration continues uninterrupted

• Backwash Shoes contact the cloth media directly and solids are removed by vacuum pressure from the Backwash/Solids Pump

• Backwash water is redirected to the headworks

 

Solids Wasting Mode        

• Backwash/Solids Pump provides suction to the Solids Collection Manifold for wasting of settled solids

 


 

Features

    Each disk is approximately 10' in diameter, the largest cloth disk available

     

    Eight (8) lightweight, removable segments for ease of maintenance

     

    Up to 24 disks in a single filter, capable of treating 24 MGD

    Fully automatic PLC control system

     

    Low hydraulic profile

     

    Available in painted steel, stainless steel or concrete tanks

Advantages

    Fewer filters required, resulting in a smaller footprint and lower capital and operating costs

     

    Low energy consumption since disks are stationary, except when backwashing

     

    Fewer pumps and valves needed means lower maintenance costs

     

    Higher solids and hydraulic loading rates

Applications
