Hydrotech filters are highly flexible and can be fitted with screens from 10 – 2,000 micronmeter. As example, they are successfully used for:
- Recirculated system (RAS) or flow-through systems
- Intake water
- Effluent water
- Filters for removing sea lice from water on well boats
- Algae filtration
(Aquaponics refers to a food production system that couples aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as fish, crayfish, snails or prawns in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) whereby the nutrient rich aquaculture water is fed to hydroponic grown plant, involving nitrifying bacteria for converting ammonia into nitrates.)
Using Hydrotech microscreens in a fish farm can remove up to:
- 80% of total BOD
- 85% of total phosphorus
- 90% of the solids in the water
This releases environmental pressure from our natural resources, guarantees animal well-being and contributes to the safety of our food chain.
Water quality control will become key to ensuring more sustainable fish farming while the world population increases.
