F.B. Leopold recently introduced its elimi-NITE™ Denitrification System for removing nitrogen in wastewater effluent. In addition, employing deep bed, mono-media filters, the system can simultaneously remove suspended solids. The gravity, downflow, packed-bed denitrification system is an attached growth, microbiological process which removes nitrate-nitrogen achieving levels below 1 mg/liter. Physically, it is identical to a deep-bed downflow sand filter with Leopold® Type S® Dual Parallel Lateral Underdrain and silica media or a filter bed engineered to specific effluent requirements.
