High Rate Solid Contact Clarifier
Process: Treats raw and waste water, producing clarified water of highest quality the principle here is that if preformed flocs particles are feed back to mix with the incoming water, the microfloc particles in the raw water are captured much more rapidly and efficiently. The sludge is older and therefore more consolidated. Surface rating for these types of clarifiers are higher (3 – 4 m/h), coagulant usage less and wider range of water qualities can be tolerated.

Filter presses are extensively used to separate solids from liquids in a wide range of applications. The liquid solid mixture is pumped into the filter press, which is made up of a number of recessed filter plates forming chambers. The plates are supported in a fabricated steel frame and are held closed by a force exerted from a hydraulic ram mounted in the frame work at the end of the machine. Each filter plate is covered by a filter cloth that retains the solid particles, but allowing the liquid to pass through and exit through the ports in the filter plate.

- Pollution: Effluent Treatment Plants, Industrial wastewater
- Others: All applications Requiring solid liquid separation

Unit is conical tank available in MS, SS, and FRP provided externally with a supporting structure, valve and piping to direct and control flow of water during treatment and for cleaning. Above unit are having design options for Chemical Mixing, system with agitator, Chemical dosing system etc. To control and measure flow during normal and cleaning operations, flow indicators are provided at an optional cost.
- Floculation and coagulation
- Sludge settling
Extended Aeration System:
This tank will be equipped with fix type slow speed surface aerators with inlet and outlet arrangement. Here effluent will be aerated by means of fixed type slow speed, surface aerators mounted on suitable RCC platform. The surface aerator will be connected with suitable HP motor through speed reduction gear. The submerge of the aerator will be such that maximum aeration and mixing is achieved.
Diffused Aeration System:
High performance fine bubble Membrane diffuser for waste treatment aeration. Unique open-end tube design diffuser allows waste water to completely fill the diffuser support tube, thus eliminating diffuser buoyancy and not allow diffuser to bounce during operation and there is not breakage / failure of nipple end connection.
- High Oxygen transfer efficiency.
- Self cleaning operation
- Fine bubble formation
- Intermittent operation without water backflow
- No moving parts-assures safety
- Unbreakable, light weight & heavy duty membrane to withstand high pressure.
- Economic operation due to low investment & operation Cost.
Fludised Media Reactor
FMR system is a Single Tank Design Unit consisting of:
- FMR aeration tank with floating media
- Lamella Settler
- Chlorine Contact Tank
(Schematic diagram / Process Flow Sheet)
Features of FMR Media:
- High Surface Area
- High physical & chemical resistance
- Low Annual Losses (3-5%)
- Good biomass retention capability
- Significant reduction in space requirement due to its single tank design and compactness
- Reduced power due to elimination of sludge recirculation
- No moving mechanical parts, less maintenance
- Increased SRT and hence well nitrified effluent and low sludge volumes
- Easy up gradation and extension of existing waste water treatment plants
Advantages over FAB:
- FMR has fewer tanks than FAB. Hence, it is more compact
- FMR occupies less area than FAB (FMR requires 25% less area than FAB)
- FMR adopts lamella technology for settling which is more efficient and superior than tube settler of FAB
- Lamella plates can be easily cleaned while the unit is in operation. Tube settler cannot be cleaned online
- Tube settlers are more prone to clogging
- FMR is a biological process which is close to the nature. ECO-CELL is a physico-electro-chemical process requiring to dose various chemicals like polymers, salt and consumable electrodes. Life of electrode is 2 to 3 months approx.
- FMR does not alter TDS level of sewage whereas ECO-CELL increases TDS of the treated sewage which is not good for the plants
- As ECO-CELL depends only on chemcial process for BOD/COD reduction, it cannot efficiently remove them and hence cannot produce high quality treated sewage
- The electrodes gets scaled and becomes inefficient in its performance requiring very frequently maintenance.
- Raw Sewage
- Areation tank
- FMR Outlet
- ACF Outlet
Membrane Bio Reactor
This paper will discuss the application of membrane bioreactors (MBRs) to treat domestic waste for small communities, either for discharge or for reuse. The use of membrane bioreactors for both domestic and industrial wastewater treatment has expanded significantly in the last few years. This paper will discuss the MBR process, and then highlight two case studies that demonstrate the applicability of the MBR to small communities.
