Installation

The unit is placed on a compacted, levelled sand or gravel bed, although a concrete slab is better suited in certain applications. After connecting the BioCompact® to the influent and effluent pipes, and to an electrical power source, the system is ready for operation.

Maintenance

Ordinary maintenance includes a bimonthly check of the concentration of activated sludge, a monthly check for verification of proper operation of sensors and their cleaning. The collected screenings of items (fibrous materials, plastic, rubber items, etc.) must be removed. Similarly, the collected sand and the digested excess sludge must be removed. The frequency of discarding this waste depends largely on the influent wastewater quality, and thus on the habits of the population connected to the treatment system.
