Details — BioCompact® A Series
The BioCompact® A series of wastewater treatment systems can handle sewage for up to 200 people, depending on the model. They use a scaled-down version of the activated sludge process used by large municipal wastewater treatment plants.
The BioCompact® A series models are cylindrical tanks. The main body of the tank is below ground and has a manhole (1.5 m diameter) at ground level. Supplementary sand supports the BioCompact® unit. As an in-ground installation, BioCompact® A units typically do not require insulation, but this depends on climate conditions. Wastewater flows via gravity, but certain topographical conditions may necessitate external pumps.
BioCompact® A units have a thick bitumen coating protecting it from water corrosion and any incidental damage during installation. For easy transport, the coating has a thin layer of lime chalk (hence the white colour on the outside).
In a widespread community, several BioCompact® A units can be strategically placed in order to meet wastewater treatment needs.
BioCompact® A units are simple, relatively maintenance-free, and operate under the ControLogic™ system. This system provides instant access to performance data, allowing spot checks of treatment efficiency, pH balance, aeration efficiency, and temperature.
