New Aqua MegaDisk™ Cloth Media Tertiary Filter Operates in 80% Less Space than Sand Filters with Comparable Hydraulic Capacity

Share Article

Featuring 30% larger diameter disks and fewer mechanical components, the filter offers the smallest footprint available.

The Aqua MegaDisk cloth media filter is yet another breakthrough addition to Aqua-Aerobic Systems’ extensive line of cloth media filters. The filter utilizes OptiFiber® pile cloth media and is designed to provide the same reliability and performance of the original AquaDisk® filter. The difference is size. Each disk is approximately 10 feet in diameter and consists of (8) segments for ease of installation and maintenance. The Aqua MegaDisk filter can have up to 24 disks, which is capable of treating 24 MGD average daily flow in a single unit. The filter also features a 15 horsepower (HP) backwash pump and 5 HP drive motor. Since it requires fewer pumps, valves and disks, capital and O&M costs are reduced.

The Aqua MegaDisk filter achieves low level TSS and NTU and accommodates high solids and hydraulic loading rates. Since the filter has no moving parts, except during backwash mode, it uses low energy consumption. The filter also offers higher flux rates; low backwash rates and has a fully automatic PLC control system.

The Aqua MegaDisk filter is designed for wastewater treatment plants with an average daily flow of more than 7 MGD. Ideal applications include: municipal or industrial reuse/recycle, phosphorus removal, stormwater, deep bed filter retrofits or new plant construction. The filter is most favorable for plants with limited land space.
