Hydrotech Discfilters from Kruger offer high filtration capacity, low energy usage, and a very small footprint. Woven cloth elements are installed vertically on multiple discs, allowing the filters to provide a large filtration area with footprint about 75% smaller than traditional sand filters. The filters are ideal for effluent polishing from a variety of process trains, including activated sludge, high rate clarification, MBBR, RBC, trickling filters, etc. The systems are used to produce reuse quality effluent and achieve phosphorus concentrations < 0.1 mg/L. They are used for a wide variety of other applications including membrane pre-treatment, primary and secondary wastewater filtration, CSO/SSO treatment, and process water recovery.
