Primary Settlement Chamber:
Wastewater from the home will flow to the Primary Settlement Chamber, where a physical Separation of foreign material and sewages solids will occur. At this stage the TSS (Total Suspended Solids) and BOD (Biochemical Oxygen Demand – the measurement of organic matter contained with the water) are greatly reduced. This primary treated effluent is then displaced into the BioZone for further treatment. The settled solids in the Primary Settlement Tank should be removed periodically, as required.
The BioZone is where most of the biological treatment process will occur. This chamber contains thousands of maintenance free, patented, high surface area biofilm carrying media, specially designed for this type of treatment system. The naturally occurring microorganisms present in the wastewater will adhere to the media and, int urn, will consume the organic based pollutants within the wastewater – thus providing the highly efficient treatment process.
Air/Oxygen is delivered from the Air Compressor to a fine bubble disc diffuser, positioned at the bottom of the chamber. The air provides the oxygen required by the microorganisms to live and creates movement within the tank to ensure complete contact between the media and wastewater. Following this biological treatment process, the effluent is then displaced into the Claification Chamber.
This chamber allows fine particles, present in the treated effluent, to easily settle out. The chamber contains a timber controlled effluent pump to remove these settled particles and deliver them back to the Primary Settlement Tank thus ensuring the excellent quality of the treated effluent. The treated effluent then discharges to the Chlorination Chamber via a fine particle filter.
The Biologically treated effluent will pass through a Chlorine Tablet Feeder system that will dose the final effluent and provide the final disinfection process required for most applications. The fully disinfected effluent will then be delivered to the disposal system (irrigation/soakaway system) via an integrated stainless-steel float controlled effluent pump.
The Compressor Housing provides a home for the high quality, energy efficient compressor (blower) and Electronic Control Panel. The compressor provides the air that is driven in to the BioZone to provide oxygen and movement to the media and the Control panel operates and powers the mechanical components within the BioFicient. The Control Panel provides constant system status which can be viewed on the integrated LCD display. Fault signal to the Audible/Visual Alarm is supplied, in the unlikely event of system/power error. A standard battery backup power supply is installed to ensure fault signal is active in the event of power failure to the system.
