Moving Bed Bio Reactors
Superior design enables maximum exploitation of
surface area for nitrification, denitrification and
mineralization of COD/BOD in Moving Bed
Bio-Reactors.
Expertise in Moving Bed Technology since 1993
Through our association with our sister-company,
INTER AQUA Advance A/S, we have more than
15 years of experience in Moving Bed Technology
and bioelements.

bioelements

. whereby the excess bio-film is knocked loose and by flushing from the friction caused by water passing over the bio-element surfaces.KEEPING IT CLEAN The ability to keep the biofilm young and thin is what will determine the efficiency of the biological water treatment in the end. The optimal biofilm layer thickness is between 50 and 100 µm to enable full penetration of the substrastes into the biofilm. Cleaning of the bio-elements takes place by abrasion and collisions between individual bio-elements. The physical properties of the bio-elements are therefore just as important as the aeration design of the bio-reactor. the bacterial film layer will rapidly develop and result in a thick and inefficient biofilm. How the bio-element is designed. capitalizing on our more than 15 years of experience in Moving Bed technology to develop a product range suitable for virtually any type of biological water treatment. Clogging of bioelements may lead to successive development of higher microorganisms such as protozoa and copepods that graze on the bactera. A reduction in the actually active surface area upon the bioelements will result in a concommitant reduction in the bioreactor’s capacity. will also influence how it reacts in the water phase and how susceptible it is to the water current passing into and out of the bio-reactor. eventually causing complete collapse of teh bactera population. If left uncontrolled. CREATECH Aqua has placed great emphasis on the cleaning properties of our bioelement product designs. Such development can have serious detrimental impacts on the bioreactor.

the relative cost per unit active surface area along with a minimum of 10-years life-span places our products among the most attractive available in the market. thin and highly active. COST-EFFECTIVE The cost-effectiveness of CREATECH Aqua’s bioelement products becomes evident when price is compared to achievalbe active surface area.EXPLOIT THE SURFACE BIOELEMENT PROPERTIES SAFETY Safety in operation is one of the primary key-words of CREATECH Aqua’s work. we incorporate a built-in safety margin to handle unanticipated sudden peak loading situations and our designs are based on preventing the formation of higher predatory organisms and undesirable shifts in the microbial community due to thick biofilm development. STABILITY Through the ability to matinain the biofilm layer young. By enabling exploitataion of the product’s bulk surface area to the maximum in terms of achievable active surface area. Consequently. . the correct usage of CREATECH Aqua’s bioelements for biological water purification will provide a latent spare capacity to absorb peak loadings and the operational stability over long time that is required in the Industry.

we recommend using CYLINDER Plus. The increased frictional property of the design requires a highly dynamic means of aeration and is best exploited in the CLEARWATER Low-Space Bio-Reactor (CLSBRTM) – a patented technology that provides optimal bio-film control for maintaining a constantly high and stable performance. The CURLER Advance X-1 biomedia is also appropriate for use in well-designed “Low-Head” Moving Bed reactors and conventional Moving Bed Reactors according to standards set out in our brochure. The frictional forces from the water phase are allowed free passage into the inner surfaces of the element from all directions for effective exfoliation of old and inactive bio-film.CHOOSE THE BEST! CURLER ADVANCE X-1 The CURLER ADVANCE X-1 bioelement is a registered and proprietary design and may not be copied. but without having extensive knowledge and experience in MBBR hydraulics. DESCRIPTION Specifically designed as a unique open profile for a highly improved self-cleaning capacity. .

The hollow internal structure of the profile enables rigid mechanical agitation to successfully remove biological debris from the internal area and the closed cylindrical shape reduces frictional resistance. for use in both aerobica and anaerobic MBBR technology. Apart from the smaller dimension and higher surface area. IFAS and Fixed Bed CLEARWATER TECHNOLOGY CYLINDER PLUS The CYLINDER PLUS bioelement is a registered and proprietary design and may not be copied. CYLINDER X-0 The CYLINDER X-0 bioelement is a registered and proprietary design and may not be copied.The powerful combination of the CLEARWATER Low-Space Bio-Reactor (CLSBRTM) technology and the CURLER Advance X-1 bioelement enables the ability to provide up to 40% higher active surface area. DESCRIPTION The CYLINDER X-0 bio-media is designed for a very high surface area and heightened structural strength. . the CYLINDER X-0 biomedia possesses the same qualities as the CYLINDER PLUS bio-media. making it suitable as an “all-round” bio-element for both Aquaculture and wastewater treatment. The hollow internal structure of the profile enables rigid agitation to successfully remove biological debris from the internal area. Our products have found use in many applications internationally for CLSBRTM. MBBR. whilst the small diameter profile provides a high degree of protected surface area for bacterial attachment and growth. DESCRIPTION The CYLINDER Plus bio-media is designed for a high surface area and structural strength.
