The Aerofloat Solution
The strict wastewater regulations demanded by the local council meant that Cupitt’s Estate required a system that would treat its wastewater and sewage to a high standard.
Aerofloat’s solution was designed to treat up to 35m3 each day of wastewater, ensuring the treated effluent was compliant with local council’s strict standards for disposal by irrigation.
Two Sequence Batch Reactors (AeroSBRs) with Aerofloat’s patented aeration mechanism were integral to the design, offering a robust and reliable treatment option with proven results in the industry. Compared to other SBRs on the market, the maintenance-friendly benefits of Aerofloat’s patented aeration system were welcomed by the team at Cupitt’s Estate.
In addition to the AeroSBRs, Aerofloat installed an upfront sceen, and balance, effluent and sludge tanks. Chemical dosing was installed for Phosphorus removal and liquid chlorine dosing was installed to disinfect the high quality treated effluent from the SBRs.
Additional storage on site for the treated effluent was provided to allow treated effluent to be stored during wet weather and irrigated when the rain stops.
The system also had remote monitoring capabilities and enhanced automation to limit maintenance requirements. Aerofloat’s engineers could also log on to the system and view the plant remotely should Cupitt’s Estate operators require any assistance with optimisation and diagnostic work.
