Evaluation of a revolving plate type bio filter for use in re circulated fish production and holding units


Transactions of the American Fisheries Society 105(6): 704-708
Evaluation of a revolving plate type bio filter for use in re circulated fish production and holding units
Based on information gained from a pilot model, 2 identical revolving plate filters were designed to be evaluated for use in a recirculated fish production system. Each unit consisted of a fiberglass tank containing 787 l of water; a biofilter having 60 plates, each 51 cm in diameter, rotated at 6 rpm; and a settling tank. The total water volume in each unit was 1132 l. Water was continuously passed through the filter at a rate of 9 l/min, and fresh water was added to the fish tank at a rate of 0.45-0.72 l/min. In a trial designed to determine loading rate, each of the units could support at least 45 g of channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus)/l of the total volume of water in the system, and approximately 2 kg/m2 of surface area of the filter. By extrapolation, carrying capacity on the basis of fresh-water flush was 71-113 kg/l per min. In a growth trial, the fish in both units grew at an acceptable rate for the temperature at which they were held. In both trials, NH3, NO2-N, NO3-N, methyl orange alkalinity, pH and O2 remained at desirable levels. It appears that this type of filter has some features that are particularly attractive for use in recirculated fish production units or holding facilities.
