West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources Approves Anua’s Platinum Submerged Aerated Filter System
Greensboro, N.C. (April 12, 2012) – Anua’s new Platinum Submerged Aerated Filter (SAF) system received approval from the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources. The West Virginia Sewage Advisory Board accepted the European EN 12566-3 protocol as an “other recognized testing agency.” Per correspondence from the department, “This approval allows for Platinum SAF treatment systems to be installed in West Virginia under the same circumstances as Standard 40 Class I certified home aeration units.”
Key product benefits include: underground installation (including blower and low profile access covers), submerged aerated filter with no by-pass of media, integrated biomass return from clarifier to primary tank and small footprint for environmentally sensitive installation in residential, small neighborhood and commercial applications.
The Platinum system for individual residential use comes fully assembled for immediate below ground installation by authorized installers. The system is highly efficient and virtually silent – the only moving part is a small air-delivery system – and its lower maintenance and power consumption needs mean lower total costs for homeowners compared to other aeration systems. It also includes a single or two-stage primary settlement tank, rare in a plant this size.
Platinum’s unique design and three-step treatment system feature a submerged aerated filter that reduces the level of biological oxygen demand (BOD) and total
suspended solids (TSS) in the effluent to secondary standards. Coupled with a peat fiber biofilter, the treatment will achieve a 5:5 mg/I BOD:TSS standard and significant pathogen reduction.
The Platinum wastewater treatment system for small community and commercial use offers numerous options for larger populations, and it’s perfect for small housing developments, apartments, restaurants and hotels, RV and mobile home parks, schools or nursing homes.
Below-ground installation does not take up valuable yard space or leave unsightly equipment exposed, so there is nominal visual impact on the surrounding area.
With the same cost, maintenance and installation benefits as the residential system, Platinum for small communities and commercial use can be modified to conform to strict regulatory standards for enhanced BOD and TSS removal, nutrient and pathogen reduction.
