The importance of having an effective removal of solids to get a stable and good level of water quality in recirculation systems is widely recognized. AquaOptima has a patented system (ECO-TRAP) that removes the settleable solids directly from the tank. The water treatment system is designed to beneﬁt from this unique function. Due to the ECO-TRAP the mechanical and biological ﬁlter is given water with a low content of organic matter and with a much smaller variation in loading because of the elimination of feed waste in periods. This ensures a safer recirculation system.
AquaOptima has delivered RAS for warm and cold water species and for fresh and sea water all over the world for 20 years. As of now the company has experience in species
like Atlantic salmon, Arctic char, Atlantic cod, halibut, rainbow trout, tilapia, sea bass and sea bream, barramundi, Japanese ﬂounder, turbot, eel, tiger puffer ﬁsh and sturgeon.
AquaOptima makes pre-feasibility studies, production plans, lay-out of buildings with tanks, water treatment and technical rooms, process engineering and installation drawings with the speciﬁcation and pricing of all necessary equipment. The company supplies all equipment, supervises during installation and performs the commissioning and assistance during the ﬁrst period of operation.
AquaOptima focuses on reliable and low maintenance processes in water treatment systems. After the ECO-TRAP system, which removes the settleable solids, the
company uses microscreens to remove the ﬁne suspended solids. For bioﬁltration AquaOptima uses the moving bed technology, also a Norwegian patented process. It is the most effective system for bioﬁltration and requires very low maintenance, no ﬂushing or energy consumption for the cleaning of biomedia. These processes are effective and compact, and reduce the foot print area of the building compared to competitors. Protein skimmers and ozone are also most often part of the AquaOptima RAS.
AquaOptima provides a very modern automation system controlling oxygen dosage in all tanks, pH adjustment for optimal bioﬁltration, inverters for pumps and blowers, alarms for all logging parameters and motors and internet access to provide service from the company base in Norway.
