Wastewater TSS Removal
Influent vs Effluent
A number of AST filters are perfect for TSS removal applications. Our filters can be added to existing systems and are easily configured for your specific use case.
Bead Filters vs. Traditional Options
TSS removal in a PolyGeyser is accomplished by the same mechanisms effective in other granular filters, such as the common sand filter. The fact that the media floats and the water flows upward does not significantly impact the removal process. Solids are removed by settling on the beads, physical straining in the gaps between beads, impacting bead surfaces as their specific gravities force them to deviate from water flow paths (interception), striking bead surfaces by molecular level movements (adsorption or absorption) onto a biofilm surface. In most applications, settling and straining dominate the process effectively removing particles down into the 30-50 micron class. Below this size category interception and then adsorption (absorption) becomes dominate.
