How the BioCrack electrokinetic disintegration works
The operating princinple

A BioCrack module consists of the BioCrack housing, which acts as the treatment chamber and external electrode, and the internal electrode in the middle of the housing. This is supported in connecting pieces at each end, which hold it in position. The electronics are installed in the head of the internal electrode; the energy is provided by the corresponding power supply. The medium flows through the treatment chamber where a high voltage field with tens of thousand of volts is generated between the internal electrode and the stainless steel external electrode. As the medium flows through the high voltage field, the electrical forces applied break down flocculant structures and clumps such as aggregates and colloids made up of dead organic matter and bacteria. It also boosts enzyme activity. Altogether, this ensures that the nutrients are far easier to access for the digesting bacteria, and the organic content can be transformed and broken down better. That ensures a higher gas yield, reduced viscosity of the medium and makes sludge easier to drain.

Features of the BioCrack

The BioCrack housing, which also serves as the outer electrode, is made of stainless steel. That makes the modules robust and resistant to corrosion – internal and external.
The electrode in the interior of the BioCrack module is protected by a casing consisting of a one-piece PE housing without joints and connections. That means that no medium can come in contact with the electrode and cause trouble.
The software of the digital power supply continuously monitors all important current values and automatically regulates them in the optimal range for most effective treatment. And if a malfunction ever does occur, the control unit registers it and takes protective measures.
The double-shielded supply line to the electrode head is equipped with an anti-kink device to prevent damage to the cable.
All important parameters of every individual BioCrack electrode are tested in the factory before use in the field.

Options of the BioCrack

If the BioCrack modules cannot be mounted on a wall etc., the BioCrack base is the solution: Up to six BioCrack modules can be arranged in a compact layout on it.
