Sewage Treatment versus Septic Systems On the other hand, the traditional septic tank process relies on solids being settled in the tank and anaerobic bacteria culturing in the settled sludge providing a degree of treatment. Further treatment is carried out in biological treatment fields with the settled effluent being exposed to naturally occurring bacteria in the subsoil. However the use of modern domestic chemicals has largely eliminated any bacteriological activity in septic tanks or irrigation fields and today they only provide primary settlement of sewage with little if any improvement in effluent quality.
Stricter guidelines on the design of irrigation fields will mean that even fewer successful septic tank treatment installations are likely in the future.
Klargester's premier treatment plant is BioDisc and offers a high performance, low maintenance system producing effluent which meets the rigorous quality standards demanded by the Environmental Agency. It is the only domestic treatment plant using a Rotating Biological Contactor (RBC). Operating costs are minimal, with an extremely quiet and reliable low power electric motor. Biodisc uses rotating discs as a medium for supporting bacteria which carry out the aerobic treatment process. Primary and final settlement are contained within the unit which also has a totally unique flow management system to provide optimum performance under all circumstances. The 2000 Building Regulations require that soakaway overload be avoided. BioDisc flow management uniquely achieves this.
The Klargester AirFlow range of packaged treatment plant is available as standard or high level nitrification plants. They employ a development of the well proven aerobic biological process for the purification of sewage and wastewater.
