Details — BioCompact® K and M Series
The BioCompact® K and M series of wastewater treatment systems can handle sewage for populations of up to 400 people (K series), or 500 people for the military version (M500). These systems use a scaled-down version of the activated sludge process used by large municipal wastewater treatment plants.
They are installed above ground and can be insulated if necessary. Wastewater flows via gravity, but certain topographical conditions may necessitate external pumps.
BioCompact® 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.
BioCompact® K250 systems have been in Germany since the early 1990′s. Building on their success, BioCompact® developed the BioCompact® types K200, K400, and M500 within the framework of standard ISO shipping container dimensions (ISO HQ dimensions).
