Predicting Biofilter Media Life for a High Loading Biofilter Based on Empirical Site Data
There are no published reliable methods for predicting media life expectancy for hydrogen sulfide oxidizing biofilters. Having a reliable prediction method is important for justifying the implementation of biofiltration technology as an alternative to more conventional odor control technologies such as chemical scrubbing and carbon adsorption. This paper presents and discusses data from a long-term biofiltration project in Valrico, Florida. H2S loading, spent media sulfate concentrations and pH are examined as predictors of media life, and some general comparisons with other technologies are made.
