• Electrical Sewage Treatment Plants

    Most sewage treatment requires electricity and whether its extended filtration, submerged aeration, sequencing batch reactors or bespoke sewage treatment, WCI can advise on what the most appropriate system is to meet your needs.

There are many different types of electrical sewage treatment plant. Whether it’s submerged aeration, sequencing batch reactor, activated sludge or rotating biocontactor, WCI will always propose a system which best meets your budget and your requirements.

Benefits at a glance

Cost effective treatment of domestic sewage at a lower cost than most water authority sewage rates

Treated effluent does not have to have a soakaway and can be discharged to watercourses and ditches

Odour-free with a small physical footprint permitting systems to be installed in even the smallest garden

BS EN12566-3:2005 certified and Environment Agency compliant

Proven and reliable technology

What is electrical sewage treatment?

Unlike septic tanks which settle out solids and then discharge untreated septic effluent to a soakaway, sewage treatment systems treat the effluent so that what comes out of the system is water that is safe to enter our rivers, streams, ditches and ground water. You could say that sewage treatment systems receive raw sewage and discharge river water.

Compact and reliable

Most domestic sewage treatment plants are extremely compact and can be installed on the smallest of sites. WCI has a wide experience of installing sewage treatment plants in small gardens, under driveways, within existing septic tanks and even above ground. All of the systems we install are BS EN12566-3:2005 certified and we guarantee regulatory compliance.

No soakaway required

There are many reasons why you might need sewage treatment. One common reason is because septic tanks cannot legally discharge directly to a watercourse (or ditch) and subsequently require a soakaway. For properties with limited garden space, high water tables or soil with poor porosity (eg. clay), soakaways are not viable. Treated effluent from a sewage treatment plant, however, can legally be discharged (subject to Environment Agency guidelines) into watercourses and ditches.

Cost effective

Sewage treatment systems can sometimes appear expensive to buy and install. However, with sewage rates for the average family home costing around £540 per year, private sewage treatment is considerably cheaper over the medium to long term.

The chart to the right illustrates the average cost over 15 years for a 3 bedroom house.

 

WPL Diamond

The WPL Diamond is an ‘activated sludge’ range of package sewage treatment plants serving a population ranging from 6 – 55 PE. A single tank system, wastewater flows directly into the main tank and enters a bio-chamber where the biological process begins. The bio-chamber is an aerated zone where solids circulate and are thereby treated. The Diamond provides for a number of depth extensions and can be applied in circumstances where the depth of incoming drains would prevent other systems being used.

WCI likes the Diamond for its robustness, the quality of its blower housing, its consistent treatment quality and the well-designed and sympathetic lid. Click here to download the official Diamond brochure or call us for more information.

Conder ASP

The Conder ASP is an ‘activated sludge’ range of package sewage treatment plants serving a population ranging from 6 – 25 PE. A single tank system, wastewater is treated in an inner central bio-zone chamber and an outer settlement zone. The plant accepts and treats the incoming sewage, using the extended aeration principle, in the central bio-zone chamber. A simple coarse bubble diffuser, housed in a draft tube, introduces the air that provides the oxygen to the bacteria which then treats the sewage. The bio-zone retains the mixture of sewage and bacteria until the level of treatment has been achieved. The treated effluent then enters the settlement zone where settlement takes place. The treated (final) effluent subsequently leaves the plant over a weir at the outlet level that extends around the circumference of the tank. The movement of fluid through the whole system is by gravity displacement and there are no moving parts in the treatment plant.

WCI likes the ASP for its ease of installation, reliability in high water tables and consistent treatment quality. Click here to download the official Conder ASP brochure or call us for more information.

Rewatec Solido

The Rewatec Solido is a ‘sequence batch reactor’ range of package sewage treatment plants serving a population from 6 to 40 PE. Wastewater is treated in batches rather than being treated continuously making the Solido an efficient treatment plant with reduced energy consumption and prolonged life for all component parts.

A sequence batch reactor plant offers significantly greater control over treatment than an activated sludge plant. This can eliminate noise at crucial times (eg. peaceful summer evenings), reduce running costs (eg. when the family is on holiday) and deliver high levels of treatment (for stringent discharge standards).

WCI likes the Solido for its efficiency, ability to control noise and its robust and sympathetic construction. Click here to download the official Rewatec Solido brochure or call us for more information.

Klargester BioFicient

The Klargester BioFicient is a ‘submerged aeration’ range of package sewage treatment plants serving a population from 6 to 30 PE. The BioFicient is a single tank system and has been specifically designed for ‘shallow dig’ applications. The moving aerated media process is a compact development of the traditional biological process and provides high levels of treatment.

WCI likes the BioFicient for its shallow dig credentials and its unobtrusive design features. Click here to download the official Klargester BioFicient factsheet or call us for more information.

Klargester BioDisc

The Klargester BioDisc is a ‘rotating biological contactor’ range of package sewage treatment plants serving a population from 6 to 24 PE. The BioDisc is the only sewage treatment plant utilising the ‘RBC’ technology more typically found in large applications for domestic applications. The BioDisc is subsequently a high performance package treatment plant which in normal domestic situations will produce effluent qualities of better than 8mg/l BOD, 13mg/l SS and 4mg/l ammonia.

WCI likes the BioDisc for its treatment quality. Click here to download the official Klargester BioDisc factsheet or call us for more information.

WCI is an independent company. We will always recommend the best sewage treatment plant to meet your requirements.
