Summary

Bioreactors employed in water treatment processes require materials with the capacity of support microbes layers, in addition to their capacity to facilitate the flux of the hydraulic charge. The present work shows a ceramic monolithic fabricated with sodium feldspar through extrusion technique. The monolithic has hexagonal reticule form and presents 225m2\m3 of superficial area, free space of 75% and specific weight of 600kg\m3, therefore, satisfy the own characteristics of modules packing used in percolation. Aspects of the fabrication process, as well as results of the characterization made by textural analysis, microscopy and mechanical properties are here analyzed.
