Unit description:
  • REBF Modules for total capacity of 32 tons;
  • Biofiltration media positively charged with high affinity for attracting gram-ve bacteria such as nitrifyers. Biofilter self-cleaning and pre-activated with sea-water nitrifying bacteria to considerably reduce maturation time;

  • Chilling system to bring temperature down to 2°C (+0.2°C) with titanium heat exchanger;
  • Electronic controller and monitoring system (RF network included): 3 Enviro-monitron® each with:
    • 1 DO probe,
    • 1 temperature probe,
    • 1 pH probe,
    • 1 Conductivity probe,
    • 1 flow detector,
    • 1 central computer,
    • Temperature and oxygen injection controlled;
  • One pressurised counter-current oxygen saturator with on-site oxygen generator;
  • 1 Security package:
    • 1 pressure relief valve,
    • electrical components (pump starter, temperature controller) are housed in NEMA-4 boxes.
