KCH designs and manufactures a Biotrickling Filter System to remove high levels of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) gas and other odors from municipal and industrial. KCH Engineered Systems designs and manufactures a Biotrickling Filter System to remove high levels of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) gas and other. A biotrickling filter is a combination of a biofilter and a bioscrubber. The process of biotrickling filtration is, as is also the case with biofilters and bioscrubbers.

Comparison of four different starvation experiments showed that the time for re-acclimation was not obviously affected by the presence or the absence of gas flow or spray liquid. Most usage can be attributed to the ventilator. Thus the sulfur oxidizing bacteria were enumerated during the starvation experiments. The void fraction of the bioreactor was 0.

A biotrickling filter is a combination of a biofilter and a bioscrubber. Liquid from the upper reservoir tank could be sprayed regularly downward through the bioreactor by centrifugal water pump and was discharged from the bottom.

To safeguard the process, a temperature measurement can be taken for flue gases, if there is a likelihood of temperatures exceeding required limits. During dimensioning it is important to set the load at a modest level biohrickling order to avoid such blockages. The carrier material is constantly covered with water. The filteer solution of spray water was as follows: In experiments 2 and 3, the spray liquid with 3 L nutrient solution was supplied every 1 h.

Biotrickling Filters Biotrickling filters are used for applications in which there is no space for a biofilter, where the efficiency of a biofilter is not sufficient, or in the presence of ph-relevant compounds. Hydrogen sulfide adsorption and oxidation onto activated carbon cloths: Table 1 Experimental design for H 2 S starvation. Co-treatment of hydrogen sulfide and methanol in a single-stage biotrickling filter under acidic conditions.

Biotrickling filter

Biofiltration is a pollution control technique using a bioreactor containing living material to capture and biologically degrade pollutants. Samples were then put into physiological saline solution 0. Please review our privacy policy. Transient response of biotrickling filter to fluctuating H 2 S after re-acclimation.

The results show that the re-acclimation time, in the case of biotrickling filters for H 2 S removal, is mainly controlled by viable H 2 S oxidizing bacteria numbers.

Four identical bench-scale biotrickling filters were used Fig. The nutrients are constantly dosed and dosage is periodically checked via analyses. This will help to spare the biotrickling filter. At the same time, starvation was a useful factor to avoid the clogging of the bioreactor, which could reduce the biomass of the bioreactor in a way.

Samples were taken at same depth 35 cm from the biotrickling filters described above. The filter will be divided into two parts.

Plate count Samples were taken at same depth 35 cm from the biotrickling filters described above. The momentary response of the bioreactor to these abrupt changes in inlet concentration is presented in Fig.

Biotrickilng filters are used for applications in which there is no space for a biofilter, where the efficiency of a biofilter is not sufficient, or in the presence of ph-relevant compounds.

Chemicals for pH correction. Odor mainly composed of hydrogen sulfide H 2 S from the pharmaceutical wastewater biotricking plant is one of the major public perception nuisance problems in the pharmaceutical industry.

The fact that full activity of sulfur-oxidizing bacteria was recovered suggests that re-acclimation did not require the buildup of significant amounts of new degrading biomass. In order to keep salt concentrations within acceptable limits, one section must be discharged and filled with fresh water.

On the one hand, the experiments were carried bootrickling under the high liquid trickling velocity with 5 L of the nutrient solution, once 1 h in order to avoid the clogging of the bioreactor, which could limit the increase of biomass and further resulted in the decrease of removal capacity in the bioreactor. Dilutions of suspensions of mixed culture were plated on solid thiosulphate agar medium for enumeration of total culturable bacteria. Inlet H 2 S concentration was kept at a relatively high value at the re-acclimation biotrkckling without ramping up.

Changes of biomass during the starvation As shown in Fig.

KCH Biotricklers can also be designed for a rectangular low-profile configuration, utilizing a structured high-density media. On the other hand, the biotrickling filters can protect against shock loads in inlet fluctuating H 2 S concentration after resuming normal operation.

It should also be noted that a decrease in the biomass was not vital at relatively high biomass concentration. The biotrickling filters could obtain high removal efficiency within 4 d of re-acclimation. Water, Air and Soil Pollution. The H 2 S outlet concentration in steady state was maintained below 1. The study suggests that the biotrickling filters were capable of withstanding different conditions of starvation with rapid recovery to high removal efficiency when starvation ceases.

Solid thiosulphate agar medium was made as follows: B are provided here courtesy of Zhejiang University Press.
