  • Moore, R.; Quarmby, J.; Stephenson, Tom (School of Water Sciences, Cranfield University, 1999-03-03)
    Clay has been foamed and extruded using novel technology, to produce a lightweight media called StarLight C. Altering the production process parameters allows control of the media diameter, density, strength, and surface ...
  • Williams, T. R.; Stephenson, Tom (School of Water Sciences, Cranfield University, 1999-03-03)
    Biological aerated filters operate as fixed film systems in which micro-organisms grow on a submerged fixed structured or granular inert support media within an aerated reactor (Stephenson et al., 1993). Periodic backwashing ...
  • Bedard, P. (of Water Sciences, Cranfield University, 1999-03-03)
    High rate biofiltration is a process which has gained popularity in recent years as effluent discharge consents become ever more stringent and the available land to construct new facilities becomes more scarce. This ...
  • Cantwell, A. D. C.; Mosey, F. E. (School of Water Sciences, Cranfield University, 1999-03-03)
    This paper describes the background of recent engineering changes to the BiobeadTM system. In particular known design pitfalls are described. The development of technically improved aeration and flow distribution methods ...
  • Smith, Alan J.; Edwards, Wayne; Hardy, Peter; Kent, Tanya (School of Water Sciences, Cranfield University, 1999-03-03)
    The Biological Aerated Filter is an accepted wastewater treatment option that has the advantage of treatment and solids separation in a single, compact reactor. Choosing the correct support media for the attached biomass ...
  • Holmes, J.; Dutt, S. (School of Water Sciences, Cranfield University, 1999-03-03)
    The complexity of the Huddersfield works and the issues addressed by the scheme design engineers are highlighted, including the need for a robust nitrification process due to the high levels of nitrification inhibition ...
  • Rundle, Howard; Chen, Jeffrey J.; McCarty, Don (School of Water Sciences, Cranfield University, 1999-03-03)
    Biological aerated filters (BAF's) are compact wastewater treatment reactors capable of achieving biological oxidation and solids removal in a single reactor. The basic principle of operation is that biomass grows on the ...
  • Martin, J. (School of Water Sciences, Cranfield University, 1999-03-03)
    The use of the activated sludge process is a very well known technology. It is and has been used very widely in full scale plants from its first development at the Davyhulme works in Manchester. However this process ...
