Curler Media Resources
MBBR Design Recommendations
Curler Advance X-1 is a revolutionary new Bio-Media for use in Moving Bed Bioreactors for water purification in recirculating aquaculture systems – developed by Inter Aqua Advance. See Brochure.
Large Active Surface Area
The open curler design makes these elements particularly advantageous as carrier elements for nitrification in biofilters. These media stand apart from traditional bio-elements in their open profile which provides optimal conditions for maintaining a thin active biofilm on the surface. It is important to bear in mind that it is the active surface area that counts. This is the area that in practice can be utilized for bacterial growth and dictates the performance. In this respect the Curler Advance X-1 is superior to other products.
Easy to Clean
Easy cleaning is a crucial aspect of maintaining optimal nitrification performance or active surface area. If inactive layers of old biofilm are not continuously exfoliated, the interstitial area can clog greatly reducing the active surface area resulting in decreased nitrification performance. The Curler Advance X-1 is designed to enhance the cleaning capability and hence provide optimal nitrification by facilitating easy maintenance of a thin healthy biofilm.
