Jacopa offers Copa® percolating filter bed distributors, which are one of the most flexible and resilient method of biologically treating wastewater.
The filter beds are available with electrohydraulic, electropneumatic or electric drive units. This gives great control over the speed of rotation in all flow conditions.
Copa® distributors can be fitted onto their own duckfoot for new installations or retrofitted to any suitable existing flange as a replacement for any make of filter distributor.
A common failure of the filter distributor is the blockage of the outlet nozzles, which is caused by solids carry over from failing inlet screens. Jacopa recommends the low cost, simple CopaSac® sack screen for syphon fed distributors. The CopaSac Screen is the original sack screen and is used by many water utilities.
