BEACON manufacturers long-lasting GDisk® pile cloth disk filtration technology
for wastewater, wet weather, industrial, and potable water treatment.
Since 2008, GDisk® Pile Cloth Disk Filters continue to reliably remove solids over a broad range of particle sizes and increased hydraulic or solids loading. Turbidity and concentrations of suspended solids, phosphorus, and other contaminants are all efficiently reduced by GDisk®.
GDisk® provides a superior-performing, space-saving method to remove suspended solids to meet post-secondary treatment requirements.
Reduction of effluent phosphorus by GDisk® prevents eutrophication, improving receiving waters.
GDisk® effectively treats reclaimed water as part of direct or indirect
water reuse processes.
Fully-submerged vertical disks with outside-in flow enables increased flow rates, high solids loading, and small footprint. Static operation requiring power only for backwash minimizes maintenance and electrical costs. Beacon selects from three GDisk® nominal filtration-rated pile cloths according to the influent characteristics and effluent requirements. Manageable, reasonably-sized disk segments provide for ease of replacement.
How It Works
Influent water filters through the GDisk® pile cloth, passes from the disk interior to the center tube, and out over an effluent weir. As solids are captured within the pile, GDisk® automatically backwashes at a set water level or timed interval. Solids are wasted via the patented GDisk® backwash manifold or tank bottom sludge collector.
