Currently, MBBR (Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor) technology represents one of the most efficient and reliable solutions in wastewater treatment.
The heart of this technology are special plastic carriers, which operate inside biological reactors.
These carriers greatly increase the efficiency of biological treatments, as they provide micro-organisms with a protected surface, on which they can adhere and develop. In this way a stable and resistant biofilm is formed, which allows to reduce the volume of the biological reactor up to 3-4 times.
Unlike other attached growth biomass technologies, the carriers inside the reactors are not static, but move freely, thanks to the mixing action of the aeration systems or submerged mixers.
The various types of carriers developed by ITALPROGETTI are specially designed and manufactured for:
have a high specific surface, protected from abrasion phenomena
ensure maximum mass transfer efficiency (between the biofilm and the effluent)
avoid clogging phenomena
