Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor Media

Pexco has the technical expertise to develop and produce high-throughput, multistrand, extruded MBBR high density polyethylene (HDPE) media for wastewater treatment systems.  Our capabilities allow us to extrude complex geometric configurations and profiles that maximize surface area and results.  If you have a media design you would like to have produced, please contact us.  

MBBR technology systems feature countless polyethylene biofilm carriers which support the growth of bacteria and ultimately biodegradation of waste matter. The greater the surface area in each of the individual media pieces, the greater the bacteria collection and biodegradability action.

Pexco’s premier extrusion capabilities permit OEMs the confidence that their geometric designs will be manufactured to reality. Customers value speed, throughput, and consistency of manufacture.

Pexco’s continental manufacturing footprint additionally provides customers the opportunity to source product in close geographic proximity to the MBBR system and biofilm media’s end-use destination.
