The BioZone is where most of the biological treatment process will occur. This chamber contains thousands of maintenance free, patented, high surface area biofilm carrying media, specifically designed for this type of treatment system. The naturally occurring microorganisms present in the wastewater will adhere to the media and, in turn, will consume the organic based pollutants within the wastewater – thus providing the highly efficient treatment process.
Air/Oxygen is delivered from the Air Compressor to a fine bubble disc diffuser, positioned at the bottom of the chamber. The air provides the oxygen required by the microorganisms to live and creates movement within the tank to ensure complete contact between the media and the wastewater. Following this biological treatment process, the effluent is then displaced into the Clarification Chamber.
