Aqua MegaDisk®

Cloth Media Filter


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.




How It Works



Aqua MegaDisk®

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 & Specifications

  • Utilizes exclusive OptiFiber cloth filtration media
  • 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

Benefits

  • 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
