Mutag Biochip 30™ Premium MBBR Carrier Media

The Mutag Biochip 30™ is a high performance mixed bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) carrier that provides a protected active surface area of more than 5000 m²/m3

The Biochip 30™ is the latest innovation high performance MBBR media, with an exceptional surface ratio to size, which can improve the overall efficiency in your waste water treatment system.

The Biochip 30™ can be utilized in the following biological treatment processes:

  • Denitrification
  • Nitrification
  • COD Removal

Less carrier volume required than other MBBR designs

With a protected active surface area of more than 5,500 m²/m³ a lower volume of carrier media is required to achieve an equivalent amount of active biomass resulting in a reduction of tank size or an increase in reserve capacity.

Lower mixing energy costs

The shape and density of the Mutag Biochip 30™ allow it to be easily mixed with minimal energy inputs.


Unsurpassed durability

With a homogeneous outer ring protecting the pore structure from cuts, damage and abrasion the Mutag Biochip 30™ has unparalleled longevity.

Optimized diffusion depth

With a thickness of 1.1mm the Mutag Biochip 30™ allows substrate and oxygen to fully diffuse into all of the biomass.

Resistant to bioclogging

The shape of the Mutag Biochip 30™ allows for the mixing action in the tank to shear off excess biomass preventing clogging from the build up of inactive biomass.
