Solar Air aerobic sewage treatment system
is an extended aeration activated sludge process.
This type of treatment depends primarily on
the use of air that is introduced into the
wastewater from your home as soon as it enters
the treatment unit. When air is introduced,
it promotes the growth of organisms that break
down the organic solids.
introduction of air into wastewater
is called aeration. Aeration provides dissolved
oxygen that mixes with the wastewater promoting
and sustaining the organisms or bacteria that
breakdown the organic solids that enter the
pretreatment tank, the first stage
of the process receives raw sewage from the
source and traps any non-biodegradable waste.
aeration chamber introduces oxygen
into the wastewater by means of an
extremely quiet and efficient linear air pump.
This aeration process creates an oxygen rich
environment for the growth of aerobic bacteria.
These microscopic organisms digest the solids
in the wastewater.
the clarifier, the solids separate
from the liquid and settle to the bottom.
That matter is called activated sludge which
is returned to the aeration chamber to be
remixed. As solids settle in the clarifier,
a clear, odorless effluent rises and flows
out of the wastewater treatment plant through
the chosen method of disposal.
