CFIC

®

Continuous Flow Intermittent Cleaning Next Generation Biofilm Technology The CFIC® system is the next generation of biofilm technology. It has all of the benefits of a traditional biofilm process with moving carriers but has many additional benefits.

process benefit Energy Savings Substantial reduction in energy consumption up to 20-30%!

About Fixed Film Technology The basis of our CFIC® biofilm technology is the biological growth on polyethylene pieces called media or carriers. These carriers provide a protective surface area for the biology to grow. The biofilm that is grown can handle extremely high loading conditions while avoiding problems associated with clogging or shock. The CFIC® reactor contains highly packed biofilm carriers (typically 90-99% bulk volumetric fill) that hinders movement of the carriers that normally occurs in an MBBR reactor. The CFIC® process is designed to increase treatment capacity while reducing footprint and overall energy costs. Wash water treatment

CFIC® can be integrated into existing WWTP, utilizing the existing infrastructure.

A higher oxygen transfer rate, due to a longer lifetime of the air bubbles, leads to lower energy consumption. The biological treatment stage of a WTTP accounts for 2/3 of its total power consumption.

CMFF

Complete Mix Fixed Film The process The Biowater CMFF速 biological process is based on the MBBR (Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor) concept where moving plastic carriers with fixed biofilm remove organic and inorganic substances in the water. The proposed Biowater CMFF速 design includes the Biowater biofilm carrier elements which are freely mixing around in the reactor and are specially designed for biofilm growth. The bacteria will grow and develop a solid biofilm on the large protected surface area. The moving pattern of the carriers in the reactors will also provide a natural removal of excess biofilm, due to the shear forces between the carriers and the water in the reactor. The biofilm can handle extremely high loading conditions without any problems with clogging or shock.

Virtually maintenance free. Essentially nutrient levels and DO levels are the only controls needed for this system.

Self regulating biofilm ensures stable treatment under variable loads.
