With an optimized surface structure and a diameter of now 25mm, has succeeded in increasing the biologically activatable growth area for nitrifying, pollutant-degrading bacteria. The laboratory for nanostructures at the University of Bielefeld found a protected surface of 4370 m² per cubic meter at the new Eco Pondchip. It is also our goal to achieve the highest possible active bacteria population in the smallest possible space.
As a result, considerably smaller biofilters can be produced and considerably lower costs can be achieved. Only 90 liters of Eco Pondchip are capable of biodegrading a daily feed quantity of up to 1kg . Therefore, several cubic meters of static biofilters, in addition to a considerably lower cost and effort compared to static biofilters, the moving bed technology guarantees a much better inflow and utilization of the surface compared to static biofilters. An undesirable channel formation, as occurs in many static biofilters over time, is also avoided with the permanently self cleaning moving bed technology.
ECO Pond Chip serves as a biological filter medium after mechanical filtration. The filter chamber can be filled up to 60% with ECO Pond Chips. The ECO Pond Chip can also be added to existing moving bed filters.
ECO Pond Chips are available in filter mesh bags with ± 14 litres. The 14 litres gives 61m² surface area for bacteria to grow, because the ECO Pond Chip initially repels water, it is recommended that the ECO Pond Chip bag hangs for a number of days in the pond or filter before added to the moving bed filter.
It is also ECO Pond Chips goal to achieve the highest possible active bacteria population in the smallest possible space.
