Summary

In water treatment aerobic or anaerobic reactors are frequently used. These reactors employed require materials with the capacity to support microbe layers, in addition to the capacity to facilitate the hydraulic charge flux. This work describes the fabrication of a triangular ceramic monolithic based alumina by the extrusion method. Alumina is a material of low cost and has been used extensively as a traditional and engineering ceramic. The monolithic has triangular cross section form, with a lot of small equilateral triangles in its internal section. Some results of the characterization made by textural analysis, microscopy and density measurements of the monolithic are analyzed in this work as well as some processing details.
