About Clearflo Trickling Filters

  • Simple, reliable, biological process.
  • Suitable in small areas without room for land intensive
    treatment systems.
  • Effective in treating high concentrations of organics
    depending on the media type.
  • Resistant to Shock Loads and Toxins. Not a mixed
    system, toxin affects localized. Recycle averages out
    shock loads.
  • Appropriate for small to medium sized communities
  • Rapidly reduce soluble BOD5  in applied wastewater.
  • Waste sludge easy to dewater, primarily sloughed
    off bio layer.
  • Settles and dewaters better than activated sludge
  • Efficient nitrification units.
  • Durable components—Low Maintenance
  • Low Energy requirements, do not typically require

ClearStream distributors are either mechanically or hydraulicly driven.  Speed-control allows normal operational speeds ranging from 4 to 10 minutes per revolution. More importantly, the speed-control distributor allows a regular (daily or weekly) “flushing” speed that slows the distributor to more than 60 minutes per revolution. This flush of the media is required for optimum performance of the unit.
