SEWAGE TREATMENT

Packaged Filter Systems - Tricel Puraflo

OVERVIEW

Tricel Puraflo is an eco-friendly, modular secondary (after a septic tank) or tertiary treatment system (after a wastewater treatment plant). The system uses a bio-fibrous peat filter system making it one of the most sustainable wastewater treatment systems available with very little energy consumption.

Tricel Puraflo works with your existing Septic Tank or Tricel Novo sewage treatment plant, where a higher level of effluent filtration is required before being dispersed into the ground.

Secondary & tertiary sewage treatment is the final cleaning process. It improves wastewater quality before reusing, recycling, or discharging to the environment. Our packaged filter system, Puraflo, may be submitted as part of a tertiary treatment application.

PACKAGED FILTER SYSTEMS KEY BENEFITS:

• ISO 9001 accredited
• Certified to European Standard EN12566-3
• A 100% natural system: remarkable filtration properties of peat and uses no chemical additives in achieving exceptional results
Low carbon footprint
• Highly effective tertiary treatment when installed after a sewage treatment plant
• Up to 99.9% reduction in total coliforms
• Up to 99.9% elimination of the pathogenic bacteria
•  Odour absorption properties: suppressing sewage odours
Minimal power requirements, costs typically averaging approximately £10 per annum
• Really quick and simple installation: can be installed above or at ground level
• It require no de-sludging or backwashing
• Suited for either main or holiday residence applications: Intermittent or seasonal flows have no detrimental effect on treatment levels
One only mechanical device in the system: the pump, which works on an intermittent basis, minimising the possibility of mechanical problems

What is a packaged filter system?

Packaged filter systems are required for environmentally sensitive sites; sites in watershed protection areas often require enhanced treatment. Combining a tertiary sewage treatment plant with a secondary treatment system, typically an aerobic treatment unit, achieves this requirement.

The Tricel Puraflo system connects to your existing septic tank/sewage treatment plant. The secondary treated effluent is dosed to Puraflo polishing filter modules and undergoes a third stage or tertiary treatment. The combined system will provide a very high pathogen and nutrient reduction level.

The treatment removes remaining inorganic compounds and substances, such as nitrogen and phosphorus. Packaged filter systems are required for environmentally sensitive sites such as sites in watershed protection areas.

How do Tricel Puraflo packaged filter systems work?

Tricel Packaged Filter System Puraflo

This illustration below is a typical Puraflo installation as a tertiary treatment.

Stage one: Primary and Secondary treatment from a sewage treatment plant

Stage two: Puraflo Biofiltration – Tertiary treatment

  1. The liquid effluent is pumped to the Puraflo modules.
  2. A pipework system at the top level in the modules evenly distributes the effluent onto a naturally occurring filter media.
  3. A combination of biological, chemical and physical processes treat the effluent as it filters through the media in the modules.
  4. The treated effluent emerges from the modules through the outlet pipework for an approved disposal method.

Cost-Effective-Solutions-Tricel

Cost effective solution

Minimal maintenance is required with our Tricel Puraflo systems: fewer de-sludging operations and reduced operational costs.

 
Tricel low profile solution

Easy installation

 

Puraflo units do not require concrete backfill and can utilise the existing excavated material as backfill. Therefore, the installation is quick and simple.

Frequently Asked Questions

Domestic wastewater is all wastewater generated inside the house, including grey water from sinks, showers, baths and sewage from toilets. Rainwater is not classified as greywater and should be directed to a soakaway. CONTACT US

A wastewater treatment plant treats the wastewater better, typically 20 times cleaner than a septic tank. Find out how a septic tank works and how a sewage treatment plant works.

Once the water is discharged, it must either go to a drainage field of slotted brown sewer pipe or into a running watercourse. If released directly into the ground, it would fail and block up in a concise space of time. Also, it would contradict the government’s General Binding Rules for small sewage discharges—more information on this page.
