Biodisc Wastewater Treatment Systems - RBC
Developed through Miranda’s own R&D efforts, Miracell® is a fully automatic wastewater treatment system especially designed for domestic wastewater treatment applications in capacities ranging from 50 people to 30.000 people.
Representing the ultimate in wastewater treatment systems, Miranda consumes as little as one fifth of the electricity and requires as little as one third of the space of its competitors based on the activated sludge technology.

Miracell is a fully automatic Rotating Biological Contactor (RBC) wastewater treatment system
A unique feature allows the disks connected to a shaft to rotate at a very low speed by means of a motor which is equipped with a reduction gear.
The system is designed such that 40% of the disks remain submerged in the wastewater. The disks which first submerge in the wastewater are then contacted with air. As a result of this repetitive process, organisms accumulate on the disks in the course of time. These organisms receive the necessary oxygen from the air during the rotation of the disks, consume the pollutants existing in the wastewater and convert them to carbon dioxide and water in a totally natural way.
The Miracell which operates on the RBC principle has many advantages over other package wastewater treatment systems that operate on the activated sludge principle. With conventional activated sludge systems a constant flow of air needs to be pumped through aerators by blowers in order to stimulate bacterial growth.
Whereas with the Miracell system, the bacteria are able to receive the necessary air naturally through the atmosphere.
By design Miracell has the ability to decrease its capacity in times of lower flow rates via bypassing unused compartments and routing wastewater to the last modular unit to conserve energy costs.
Another important feature is the ability to increase capacity by simply adding disks or modular compartments.
The treated water which is discharged from the Miracell is guaranteed for the most stringent discharge standards and either may be used as irrigation water, or directly discharged into a lake, stream, ocean or other body of water
A Wastewater System With Minimum Electricity Consumption
Miracell® Biodisk Have Modular Capacity
Miracell® operates silently while consuming much less energy than its competitors.
One of the most important features of the Miracell® System which is not available in any other package wastewater treatment alternative is the ability to increase the capacity of the current system by simply adding disks or 10, 100 or 250 people equivalent modular compartments. Additional capacity increase can also be achieved by usage of the optional frequency converter that can increase the speed in which the disks rotate are thereby increasing aeration.
Thanks to its modular design, Miracell® is the only package wastewater system which has the ability to lower its capacity in times of lower flow rates via bypassing unused compartments and routing the wastewater to the last modular unit in order to converse valuable energy. Because of its modularity, Miracell® can also be easily transported in the event the operation is relocated.
Miracell® a virtually indestructible treatment plant with little or no maintenance problems
Miracell® eliminates the problem of foam formation arising from high turbulence and/or bubbling due to the aeration process, which is especially encountered in wastewater that contain dissolving substances. Miracell® system is also much more resistant to unexpected circumstances such as short or long-term power interruptions, shock organic loading and sudden increases or decreases in the incoming water flow-rate.
Miracell® systems are fabricated from fiber reinforced polyester which eliminates any concerns for deterioration from the corrosive effects of alkali maters in the system and the wear-down effect of harsh environmental conditions including Ultraviolet rays. Periodic painting and maintenance which are common concerns for systems manufactured from steel are not applicable for the Miracell® The discs in the system are also made of corrosion-proof polyethylene which is a preferred material in the chemical industry for storage of harsh chemicals. Together, these advantages combine to make Miracell® a virtually indestructible treatment plant with little or no maintenance problems.
