Aqua MiniDisk®

Cloth Media Filter

Aqua-Aerobic Systems is well-known throughout the wastewater treatment industry for its complete line of pile cloth media filtration systems including the original AquaDisk® and AquaDiamond® filters. The tradition continues with the Aqua MiniDisk® filter featuring OptiFiber® pile cloth media. This filter is designed to provide economical treatment of smaller flows with the added advantage of retrofitting existing traveling bridge sand filters.

How It Works

The modular design of the Aqua MiniDisk filter retrofits neatly into existing 9 ft. (2.7 m) wide concrete traveling bridge filter basin, providing more than two times the hydraulic capacity of the original sand filter.
