How Our Products Can Help
Published on Feb 15, 2015

A key challenge aquaculturists face is the buildup of ammonia nitrogen resulting from fish metabolism. Biofiltration, a prominent component of recirculating aquatic systems, uses cultured bacteria to metabolize ammonia nitrogen into less toxic forms. There are three distinct processes a biofiltration system must be designed to manage: nitrification, mineralization and denitrification. At Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems, our biologists and engineers can help you identify the biofiltration equipment needed to maintain healthy water quality for your fish stock.
