Moving Bed Bio Filtration

Moving bed (bio) filtration (MBF) is a mode of sand filtration based upon uninterrupted filter operation. Sand cleaning is continuous while the filter is in operation and hence a 24/7 availability of the process is guaranteed.

The process features, advantages and applications of MBF are presented below. Three applications of MBF are discussed in more detail on the following subpages: biological (de)nitrification en wash water treatment.
