ACTIFLO® Disc is a polishing solution designed to achieve high removal levels of suspended solids and phosphorus in municipal and industrial wastewater for water reuse.
Actiflo® Disc’s configuration combines two efficient and compact treatment processes: a conventional Actiflo® phase, namely coagulation-flocculation ballasted bu microsand which allows for high-performance clarification, followed by a rotating disk filter polishing system for tertiary treatment.
With a total removal rate in excess of 95% for phosphorus and up to more than 99% for suspended solids, Actiflo Disc’s performance exceeds most discharge and reuse standards.
- Very compact solution, easy to adjust to present facilities or sites to be refurbished.
- Compactness: a footprint up to 80% lower than other conventional processes.
- Very low water losses
- Provides a protective barrier against parasites (ex: Helminth eggs).
- Lower turbidity, suspended solids and reduces residual phosphate contents.
- Gravity filtration
- Continuous supply with no shutdown to wash filters
Thanks to its unique equipment design, ACTIFLO® Disc is applicable in several industrial and municipal situations.
- Pre-treatment upstream of the membrane to produce drinking water
- Wastewater treatment
- Tertiary wastewater treatment for reuse in irrigation, replenishing the groundwater table or for urban use.
- Industrial wastewater treatment
- Production of process water
- Wastewater treatment for reuse

Resources & Product Range
Actiflo® Pack (MINI series)
A very compact and fully standardized clarifier package plant used for various applications such as drinking and process water, municipal and industrial wastewater and reuse. Its net flow is from 3 to 7 cubic meters per hour (m3/h) (drinking and process water) and from 3 to 15 m3/h (wastewater).
Clarification and Flotation
A two-in-one, ready-to-use system designed to adjust to substantial fluctuations in wastewater flows. It can operate as a conventional lamella clarifier in times of low flow or as a coagulation/flocculation with settling ballasted and micro sand in times of high flow.
Clarification and Flotation
This technology combines the features and the efficiency of standard Actiflo with the adsorption qualities of activated carbon to remove compounds that are refractory to water clarification. Thanks to powdered activated carbon, it ensures the production of high-quality drinking.
