Abstract Very little is known about oxygen transfer in trickling filters. Oxygen transfer in trickling filters must be studied in correlation with hydrodynamics. We suggest a method to quantify oxygen transfer in such a system. The hydrodynamics is studied using a random plastic media when it is clean and when it is covered with biomass. Concerning oxygen transfer, different equations may be proposed depending on the hydraulic model: plug flow or axial dispersion. These equations must be solved… CONTINUE READING
