Trickling Filter

A trickling filter is a fixed-bed, biological reactor that operates under (mostly) aerobic conditions. Pre-settled wastewater is continuously ‘trickled’ or sprayed over the filter made out of rocks, gravel, plastic modules. As the water migrates through the pores of the filter, organics are degraded by the biofilm covering the filter material.
