Sandcel Sand Polishing Filter


Sandcel as a sand polishing filter provides a dual function of polishing the effluent from a wastewater treatment system and disposing of the treated liquid into groundwater.

It incorporates an enclosed sand filter, which can be installed under or overground at varying heights to suit all site conditions. Sandcel filters can also be designed for larger applications by our inhouse team.

What is included with a Sandcel?

Whenever an existing wastewater treatment plant doesn’t perform at its best anymore or needs an upgrade, the Sandcel is always a great complementary solution. The sand polishing filter offers many advantages including an efficient disposing of the treated effluents into groundwater.

Before the launching of the project, it has to begin with a full site inspection and assessment monitored by the local authorities. Our product will then be designed based on your needs and requirements. It is made out of GRP panels following the EPA code of Practice.

Many layers of pea gravel and sand are used inside. The sand filter can be installed above or below ground.
