DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

Reference is now made to FIGS. 1A and 1B, which are respective simplified pictorial and sectional illustrations of a biofilm support constructed and operative in accordance with a preferred embodiment of the present invention. As seen in FIGS. 1A and 1B, there is provided a biofilm support element 10 formed of plastic, having a maximum dimension which does not exceed 50 mm and having a specific gravity of between approximately 0.70-0.91.

Preferably, biofilm support element 10 has a generally cylindrical configuration and includes a plurality of radially extending surfaces 12 extending outwardly from a generally solid center 14. In accordance with a preferred embodiment of the present invention surfaces 12 are integrally formed as one piece with the solid center 14, preferably by extrusion, and define opposite side surfaces of a plurality of radially extending ribs 16, preferably between five and nine in number. In accordance with a preferred embodiment of the present invention, each of ribs 16 has a thickness of between 0.5 and 2 mm.

In accordance with a preferred embodiment of the present invention, a transverse strip 18 is provided along an outwardly facing edge of each rib 16. Additional transverse strips may also be provided along each rib. In the embodiment of FIGS. 1A and 1B, the width of each strip is preferably equal to approximately 15-60 percent, and more preferably equal to approximately 20-40 percent, of the overall circumference of the cylindrical biofilm support element 10, divided by the number of ribs 16.

It is a particular feature of the present invention that the biofilm support element 10 and specifically ribs 16 and strips 18 are configured so as to prevent retained interdigitation between ribs of two separate biofilm support elements. In the embodiment of FIGS. 1A and 1B, interdigitation can occur, but upon such interdigitation, two separate biofilm support elements readily disengage. Accordingly, the biofilm support element 10 of FIGS. 1A and 1B is preferably configured so as to prevent mechanically retained joining of two separate biofilm support elements 10.

In accordance with a preferred embodiment of the present invention, biofilm support element 10 is formed of a plastic material selected from the following plastic materials: polyolefin, polystyrene, polyvinyl chloride and polyurethane. Polypropylene having a melt flow index typically in the range of 0.5-10 is the preferred material.

In accordance with a preferred embodiment of the present invention, biofilm support element 10 has a specific gravity of between approximately 0.75-0.89 and most preferably between approximately 0.81-0.87.

It is a particular feature of the invention that the surfaces 12 of ribs 16, as well as all other exposed surfaces of biofilm support element 10, are roughened. Preferably, some or all of the roughened biofilm adherence surfaces have a roughness average (Ra) in the range of 100-800 microns and most preferably in the range of 200-500 microns.

Reference is now made to FIGS. 2A and 2B, which are respective simplified pictorial and sectional illustrations of a biofilm support constructed and operative in accordance with a preferred embodiment of the present invention. As seen in FIGS. 2A and 2B, there is provided a biofilm support element 20, similar to that of FIGS. 1A and 1B, formed of plastic, having a maximum dimension which does not exceed 50 mm and having a specific gravity of between approximately 0.70-0.91.

Preferably and similarly to biofilm support element 10 (FIGS. 1A & 1B), biofilm support element 20 has a generally cylindrical configuration and includes a plurality of radially extending surfaces 22 extending outwardly from a generally solid center 24. In accordance with a preferred embodiment of the present invention, surfaces 22 are integrally formed as one piece with the solid center 24, preferably by extrusion, and define opposite side surfaces of a plurality of radially extending ribs 26, preferably between five and nine in number. In accordance with a preferred embodiment of the present invention, each of ribs 26 has a thickness of between 0.5 and 2 mm.

In accordance with a preferred embodiment of the present invention, a transverse strip 28 is provided along an outwardly facing edge of each rib 26. Additional transverse strips may also be provided along each rib. In the embodiment of FIGS. 2A and 2B, the width of each strip is preferably equal to approximately 60-90 percent of the overall circumference of the cylindrical biofilm support element 20, divided by the number of ribs 26.

It is a particular feature of the present invention that the biofilm support element 20 and specifically ribs 26 and strips 28 are configured so as to prevent interdigitation between ribs of two separate biofilm support elements. In the embodiment of FIGS. 2A and 2B, interdigitation cannot occur. Accordingly, the biofilm support element 20 of FIGS. 2A and 2B is preferably configured so as to prevent mechanically retained joining of two separate biofilm support elements 20.

In accordance with a preferred embodiment of the present invention, similarly to biofilm support element 10 (FIGS. 1A & 1B), biofilm support element 20 is formed of a plastic material selected from the following plastic materials: polyolefin, polystyrene, polyvinyl chloride and polyurethane. Polypropylene having a melt flow index typically in the range of 0.5-10 is the preferred material.

In accordance with a preferred embodiment of the present invention, biofilm support element 20 has a specific gravity of between approximately 0.75-0.89 and most preferably between approximately 0.81-0.87.

It is a particular feature of the invention that the surfaces 22 of ribs 26, as well as other exposed surfaces of biofilm support element 20, are roughened. Preferably, some or all of the roughened biofilm adherence surfaces have a roughness average (Ra) in the range of 100-800 microns and most preferably in the range of 200-500 microns.

Reference is now made to FIG. 3, which is a simplified illustration of a methodology for forming a biofilm support in accordance with a preferred embodiment of the present invention. As seen in FIG. 3 an extruder 30, which may be a conventional extruder, receives a mixture of materials, preferably including a plastic material 32 selected from the following plastic materials: polyolefin, polystyrene, polyvinyl chloride and polyurethane. Polypropylene having a melt flow index typically in the range of 0.5-10 is the preferred material.

an exothermic foaming agent 34, preferably azodicarbon amide; and

an endothermic foaming agent 36, preferably sodium bicarbonate or a derivative thereof.

Additionally in accordance with a preferred embodiment of the present agent, a filler 38, preferably limestone or talc, is also added.

Preferred proportions of the foregoing constituents by weight, for each one unit of plastic by weight, are as follows:

exothermic foaming agent 34--0-2%

endothermic foaming agent 36--0-3%

filler 38--0-10%

Most preferred proportions of the foregoing constituents by weight, for each one unit of polypropylene by weight, are as follows:

exothermic foaming agent 34--0.3-1.5%

endothermic foaming agent 36--1-2.5%

filler 38--0-5%

The foregoing constituents are preferably premixed together prior to being supplied to the extruder 30 and are preferably supplied in a granulated form.

The extruder 30 is preferably operated so as to have a bell shaped temperature profile along a longitudinal axis 40, such that the highest temperature in the extruder 30 is at a location intermediate the flowpath of material therethrough.

The extruder 30 is preferably formed with a nozzle 42, across which there is provided a pressure drop of at least 1500 psi.

A roughened extruded elongate profile 44 exits nozzle 42 into a cooling bath 46. The profile 44 is drawn by a puller (not shown) and is cut into appropriate lengths by a cutter 48.

Reference is now made to FIGS. 4 and 5, which are simplified illustrations of a waste water treatment system and methodology employing a biofilm support in accordance with a preferred embodiment of the present invention. As seen in FIGS. 4 and 5, biofilm support element 10 (FIGS. 1A and 1B) or biofilm support element 20 (FIGS. 2A and 2B) may be advantageously employed in an air-lift type waste water treatment system and methodology. A preferred such system is described in applicants' co-pending U.S. patent application Ser. No. 09/866,886, filed May 29, 2001, entitled METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR BIOLOGICAL WASTEWATER TREATMENT, the disclosure of which is hereby incorporated by reference.

As seen in FIG. 4, an air-lift waste water treatment system and methodology employs a pressurized air supply, typically including nozzles 50, located near the floor of a basin 52, which are supplied with pressurized air from a compressor (not shown) via pipes 54. Waste water 56 fills part of basin 52, and a multiplicity of biofilm supports 58, such as biofilm support element 10 (FIGS. 1A & 1B) or 20 (FIGS. 2A & 2B) described hereinabove, float at the top of the waste water 56, as shown. Preferably, generally cylindrical upstanding air lift enclosures 60 are provided overlying nozzles 50.

As seen in FIGS. 4 and 5, the air-lift waste water treatment system and methodology employs pressurized air from nozzles 50 to cause an upward flow of waste water 56 through air lift enclosures 60. This causes biofilm supports 58 to be inversely fluidized in waste water 56, thereby providing enhanced turbulence and mass transfer for efficient waste water treatment.

It will be appreciated by persons skilled in the art that the present invention is not limited by what has been particularly shown and described hereinabove. Rather the scope of the present invention includes both combinations and subcombinations of the various features described hereinabove as well as variations and modifications which would occur to persons skilled in the art upon reading the specification and which are not in the prior art.
