BioFilters work by passing the waste air stream through organic filter media known as "BioFiltaire" with a "biofilm" containing bacteria that degrade the odour compounds. The "biofilm" is capable of degrading carbon, sulphur or nitrogen containing compounds, particularly to achieve high efficiency removal of low-level odorous pollutants.
Clean TeQ BioFilter systems can be used individually or in combination with other technologies to treat polluted airflows from 200 m3/h up to 100,000 m3/h and greater.
Clean TeQ® BioFilter design is based on:
Practical Experience in similar applications
Use of the CleanBioTM proprietary modeling program to enable the effects of different odor types, peaks and mixtures to be understood
Other features include:
Closed housing to maintain moisture levels independent of external weather conditions
Automatic control of bed moisture through timers or moisture probes
Use of specialised IIBioFiltaireTM " media for high performance and long life
Use of Clean TeQ BioFilter Flooring system
Two types of BioFilter systems are available for pollutant treatment:
Bacterial (Odor/Toxic control)
Fungal (VOC control)
All Clean TeQ systems are designed using enclosed construction techniques to provide cost-effective and guaranteed treatment of pollutants.
Materials of construction are based on corrosion- resistant materials including FRP and corrosion- protected concrete.
BioFilter systems can also be supplied on design package/component supply basis (as above) if customer wishes to undertake construction components of project to reduce cost.
Clean TeQ® BioFilters can be used to control polluted air from a range of industries, including:
Sewerage treatment plants
Plastic industry (Extrusion)
Small space requirement
No chemical inputs
No secondary pollution
Low operating costs/Energy efficient
90 to 99% + removal of odour
80% to 99% efficiency of VOCs and toxics e.g. hydrogen sulphide
