Common Sewage Treatment Equipment Terms
Sewage treatment equipment is needed for both large municipal facilities and individual residential septic systems. Properly managed sewage systems are essential for sanitation. It is important to have the proper equipment to clean waste water and store sewage produced by a residence. The following are a few common sewage treatment equipment terms to be familiar with.
Combined Sewer System – A combined sewer system uses the same sewers to collect rainwater runoff and sewage water. One of the issues with combined sewer systems is that they can overflow when there is too much rain, causing an unsanitary situation.
Septic Tank – A septic tank is piece of equipment used in sewage treatment systems that are not connected to a communal system. They are often used in rural areas where access to a municipally managed sewage treatment system is unavailable. Anaerobic bacteria inside the tank breakdown waste.
Wastewater Filters – Filters are used throughout sewage treatment plants to remove waste from the water. For instance, filters are used to separate larger objects, like garbage and tree branches, from the waste water during pretreatment so pipes, pumps, and other equipment is not damaged during cleaning.
Greywater – Greywater is a type of waste water that comes from household tasks like bathing, doing laundry, or running a dishwasher. Greywater can be recycled easily for watering garden plants and agricultural irrigation because it does not contain human waste.
Sewage Composting – In some sewage treatment plants, sludge that has been separated from the water is composted by adding wood or straw. Bacteria will consume the sludge and the added materials, producing thermal energy.
Sewage treatment equipment for commercial and domestic waste may include water controls, pumps, sedimentation tanks, and other products for plants can be found by looking for a company online or in a phone book. If you are looking for a product needed for the primary, secondary, or tertiary stage of the treatment process, you can call the company and ask if they have the product for sale. If not, they may be able to recommend somewhere else for you to try that you have not yet found. Ground-buried treatment products, irrigation systems, beds, basins, filters, and bioreactors will range in price depending on the model you buy and the company you purchase it from. The influx of sewage water will need to be controlled in order to be treated. Oxidation treatment systems, liquid filters, microorganism filters, aerated equipment, and products needed to get rid of contaminants from runoff water can be found by searching the Internet and finding a company that has a good selection of products to choose from. Certain commercial waste treatment plants will have requirements that must be met for the process. Let the company know what your needs are to see if they have a piece of equipment that will be able to do the job for you. Ask how much they charge to have your order shipped to you if you are unable to pick it up yourself. Call several companies to compare prices and to get an idea on what a fair price is.
