Biological Filter Media


Biological filter media, and the Biological filtration system they are used in, is the heart of any filtration system for Aquaculture or wastewater.

Pure Aquatics can size a variety of biological filters including:

  • Trickle filters for ammonia, nitrite and CO2 removal
  • MBBR (moving bed biological reactors) for ammonia and nitrite removal
  • Fluidized sand filters for ammonia and nitrite removal
  • Submerged and static filters for denitrification/nitrate removal

Not all  filter media is created equally, and there are many very important key design and operational parameters that need to be met, for both the media and the biological filter reactor vessel as well.
