Wastewater Treatment Plant for Homeowners

Tricel Novo

Wastewater Treatment Plant – Tricel Novo 

With a Tricel Novo wastewater treatment plant you get an exceptional system for wastewater and sewage treatment.

Under EU regulations, all wastewater treatment plants must be tested in compliance with EN12566-3 CE Certification.

Tricel Novo plants provide the simple, cost-effective solution for high quality wastewater treatment, and ensure compliance with these environmental protection regulations.

Tricel services

Our services include a full site assessment report for your planning obligations, installation guidelines, commissioning, and the option for a maintenance contract.

How a Tricel Novo Works

Stage 1: the primary settlement chamber

In the initial stage of wastewater treatment, anaerobic breakdown takes place in the primary settlement chamber. The wastewater is introduced and the solids drop to the bottom, becoming detached from the liquid.

Stage 2: the aeration chamber

The second stage of the wastewater treatment involves aerobic breakdown. This takes place in the aeration chamber, where masses of natural occurring bacteria inhabit specially designed filter media.

These bacteria are sustained with air, which is continuously supplied from a purpose-built pump in the unit’s top section. As the liquid moves, slowly through the filter media, the bacteria feed on the waste and eliminate it from the liquid.

Stage 3: final settlement chamber

In the third stage of wastewater treatment, the wastewater flows from the aeration chamber into the final settlement chamber. Suspended sludge containing bacteria is carried with the liquid into the settlement chamber and settles to the bottom of the chamber.

From there, a continuous sludge return system pumps it back to the primary settlement chamber. The remaining treated liquid now meets the required standard to be safely passed out of the Tricel system.

Key features & benefits

► Compression moulded SMC tank. The compression moulding procedure is one of the most technologically advanced processes available to manufacture structural composites.

Components are manufactured under heat and high pressure and have unparalleled strength and toughness over standard GRP tanks or PE tanks.

 SMC is exceptional in the wastewater treatment industry with Tricel SMC tanks operating in some of the harshest climatic conditions for over 50 years with no defects.

 Tricel’s ceramic diffuser is exclusive in the domestic wastewater treatment industry and will last twice as long as all standard competitors rubber equivalents. This saves money in both call out fees and replacement parts.

 No concrete backfill for installation on most sites saving up to €400 over lower quality GRP/plastic competitors.

► No moving parts or pumps in the plant ensuring consistent operation and minimal maintenance and repair costs.

Tricel Novo plants are designed with a shallow invert to reduce both installation and time costs.

We just wanted to give some positive feedback for Norbert who just serviced our Puraflo system.

He has just completed the service on our system and we want to pass on our praise for his thorough work. He was extremely helpful in explaining the issue with the system and above all, it was just great to encounter someone with such a nice attitude.

We shall highly recommend Tricel.

Very professional, good communicator and first class.

I am delighted that I chose to install a Tricel plant in 2009 because the outflow is practically clear water and I am confident it will work reliably indefinitely. It is the perfect solution for our site which has no soakage worth talking about in winter.

I would be happy to recommend Tricel to anybody or show the site.
