Kingspan Environmental launches “invisible” High Quality Effluent STP for Domestic Houses

Posted: Friday 6th November 2009

A new Kingspan Environmental sewage treatment plant, the Entec Biotec, has just been launched, which offers housing developments the same superior performance for off-mains drainage as for commercial applications.

The Entec Biotec 5 – 7 employs the technology used in the giant Kingspan Environmental Envirosafe sewage treatment plant (designed for 300 population plus), scaled down in size to suit smaller tankage, population, and price.

In common with Envirosafe, the Entec Biotec delivers superior effluent quality, outperforming most of the packaged systems currently on the market for nitrogen reduction, as well as offering very low BOD, suspended solids, and ammonia levels.

What’s more, the tank can be installed underground, for example, under landscaping, hard-standing, or trafficked areas (albeit with additional structural support). So, where there is a need for off-mains drainage, developers and builders need no longer be concerned about allocating valuable space above ground for a tank.

Biotec 5 tank sizes begin at 40 population, which, according to Kevin Roe, Kingspan Environmental’s GB Sales Director for pollution control products, should be ideal for small-scale domestic housing developments.

“Heightened environmental standards, more stringent controls, new European guidelines and the introduction of new Building Regulations have placed greater importance than ever before on the need to install correctly sized and specified sewage treatment plants,” says Roe.

“More than 40 years of experience and our position at the forefront of this market have allowed us to develop a treatment plant that meets the needs of today’s domestic consumer.”

Biotec employs a three-stage process, featuring an innovative plug flow combination of aerobic and anoxic processes in a fluidised bed arrangement. This operates in conjunction with an advanced system of air diffusers and selected media to deliver optimum levels of purification.

The whole system has been designed to simplify both servicing and maintenance, such as the inclusion of large dedicated manholes allowing access to each individual chamber. And there is no loss of performance during maintenance.

The company’s technical specialists are able to assess each site’s demands and tailor the specification accordingly.
