Details — BioCompact® S and L Series

The BioCompact® S and L Series (picture BioCompact® S20 and picture BioCompact® S600) provides a compact, built-in wastewater treatment solution for small and large ships (has a range from 5 to 1,000 people), while the related BioCompact® L Series provides a compact, above-ground solution for populations between 600 and 1,000 people. Both the S Series and L Series are fully contained containerised steel units, which require a minimal amount of on-site assembly, and employ a scaled-down version of the activated sludge process used by municipal treatment plants.

The BioCompact® S series treatment plants carry a long history, with more than 1,000 units sold since 1980. S-type treatment plants have been approved by the US Coast Guard, the German See-Berufsgenossenschaft, the Marine Division of the British Department of Trade, the Danish Søfartsstyrelsen, the USSR Register of Shipping, the Chinese Register of Shipping, the Finnish Board of Navigation, the National Swedish Administration of Shipping and Navigation, as well as the Polish Rejestr Statków, and the International Marine Organization (IMO). The L-Series adapts the successful concept of the S-Series for land based applications.

The BioCompact® units are simple, relatively maintenance-free and operate under the ControLogic™ system that allows for instantaneous automatic monitoring of the unit’s performance. The ControLogic™ electronic monitoring device of the L-Series provides instant access to BioCompact® performance data allowing spot checks of treatment efficiency, pH balance, aeration efficiencies and temperature readings.
