The Phragmifilter® System
Treatment of wastewater by reed bed filters
Simple operation at low cost, with
low or even zero energy
consumption
Reliable and efficient
Integrated treatment of sewage
sludge
Perfect integration into natural
landscape
Can be built with local materials by
local labor
No odors, no noise, no mosquitoes
Low carbon footprint

The general principle
-Stage 1 - 3 beds in parallelArrival of raw wastewater
Treatment by reed bed filters
Retention of up to 90% of suspended solids
1st siphon
2nd siphon
-Stage 2Treatment by reed bed filters
– 2 beds in parallel

Dimensioning of a typical Phragmifilter® plant
 If no other constraints : 1.2 m2.PE-1 at the 1st
stage (first stage) and 0.8 m2.PE-1 (second
stage)
 To avoid clogging  rest periods
 feeding/rest period of 3.5/7 at the 1st stage
and 7/7 at the second stage
Panorama
Design of a typical French CW fed raw wastewater designed by
EPURNATURE (1st stage of a Phragmifilter®)
Dimensioning based on an acceptable organic and
hydraulic load :
max. 100 g COD per m² and day (total area of first stage)
max. 0,90 m dry weather hydraulic load (bed in
operation)
