Letterkenny U.s. Army Depot - pennsylvania


Project: bioFAS MBBR System for Truck Wash Production

Industry: Insitutional 

Application: Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) Removal

Application Parameters:

Problem:  The existing trickling filter was not capable of treating the organic loading assoicated with the heavy vehicle wash operation. As a result, the system was struggling to consistently meet the NPDES Discharge Permit requirements. 

Solution: bioprocessH2O supplied a two-stage bioFAS™ MBBR biological treatment process to reduce BOD at varying flow and organic loading rates. 

Status/Results: The bioFAS™ MBBR System effectively removes BOD by >90% and easily meets the NPDES Dsicarhge Permit Requirements. The system is able to operate with minimal operator attention and oversight.
