|FILTER SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANTS - NON-ELECTRIC|
FILTERPOD non-electric sewage treatment plants are our own design.. They use non-degradable RDX filter media.
1 to 3 year emptying
No electricity used
Can be solar powered if required - the only solar powered sewage treatment plant in the world.
|THREE STAGE TREATMENT PLANTS|
VALANCE VES treatment systems cater for 50 to 250 persons. They are useful for campsites, golf clubs, etc. as they are very competitively priced, superb quality wastewater treatment systems.

We have never had any problems with these systems.
FALCON™ treatment plants are submerged aerated media systems. They range from 6 to 300 person wastewater treatment systems.
6 to18 month average emptying intervals.
Very clean effluent 11BOD:16SS:7NH4 standard
OK for holiday homes and underloading situations.
BIOCLEAN sewage plants are an aeration sewage treatment process without media. They range from 1 to 41 person
Very Clean effluent.

OK for FRANCE - they have the French EN Certification.
DISC plants (rotating biological contactors or RBC's)) are the original package wastewater treatment systems. RBC's are now made by only a few companies as technology has changed.
They range from 6 to 350 person systems. 3 monthly to annual emptying intervals.
Best known brand is Klargester.
|ACTIVATED SLUDGE SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANTS|
VORTEX™ sewage treatment plants produce some of the cleanest effluent of them all and have an unbeatable ammonia reduction. They have an EN 12566-3 test effluent standard of an amazing 0.4mg/L ammoniacal nitrogen, which is over 40 times lower than the Environment Agency requirements. The VORTEX™ treatment process reduces pollutants by up to 98.9%.
The VORTEX™ only uses from 24 watts/hour (£25/year at 12p/Kw) and is the most energy-efficient electric plant on the market.Click to find out Why the VORTEX™ is so energy-efficient.
The VORTEX™ also has an internal sampling point and does not need a separate sampling chamber, reducing your costs by a further £300.
The VORTEX™ is the ONLY system suitable for sewage treatment for flood plain sites.
With a price of only £1730 plus VAT, delivered for a 6 person plant, they are unbeatable value.
They range from 6 to 30 persons.
Annual emptying interval.
Superb Effluent Standard 9BOD : 16S.S . :0.4NH4
|SEPTIC TANK CONVERSION TREATMENT UNITS|
BIOKUBE septic tank conversion treatment unit produces a very high standard of effluent, but is, like the Balmoral SBR, a sequencing batch reactor. The domestic range extends up to 30 persons and the units above 10 persons require a pumping station to be added to the system.
Guaranteed sewage effluent quality for the treatment process
Ideal for strict discharge standards
All makes of sewage treatment plants, including Klargester, are serviced by Sapphire Environmental Ltd.
Septic Tank or Sewage Treatment System?
If you are considering using a septic tank instead of a sewage treatment unit, make sure that the ground is suitable for a foul water soakaway as over 50% of the UK fails either the Soakaway Trial Site Assessment Hole or Percolation Tests. If your site passes these tests, then, in our opinion, the best septic tank on the market at the moment is the Traditional Design Low Profile Crystal Septic Tank.
