Virgin PE(Blue or White color)

Removal rates of Transchip are up to 13 times higher than with “conventional” carriers.

Recylced PE Alternate

Diffusion depth from each side approx. 0.5 mm

The Transchip is a high-performance MBBR carrier and provides a protected active surface area of ~ 5,500 m²/m³ for the immobilization of micro-organisms which are in charge of the different biological water treatment processes. Its application is characterized by extremely high removal rates and reliable process stability.

The pores of the TRANSCHIP are permanently filled with active biomass since substrate and/or oxygen can diffuse into the biofilms down to a depth of approx. 0.5 mm on both sides of the chips.

Cross section TRANSCHIP

Based on more than 20 years of experience with MBBR systems, TRANSCEND developed the TRANSCHIP in 2013 which nowadays forms the core of TRANSCEND‘s fluidized bed process called TRANSCHIP

Transchip MBBR Technology™

The TRANSCHIP MBBR Technology™ is a proven biological treatment process with numerous WWTP operators world wide.

A lot of plants using the TRANSCHIP MBBR Technology™ have been designed and engineered in basic and detail by TRANSCHIP’S high-qualified engineering team.
