Tricel Maxus Wastewater Treatment

Overview

The Tricel Maxus operates on Submerged Aerated Filter (SAF) Technology. The Plant is controlled by the E-III control panel through which all electrical components are connected.

They are robust and easy to install with multiple configurations possible to suit any site.

Simple in operation, they are easy to maintain over the lifespan of the product.

​Applications include housing estates, hotels, restaurants, campsites, or retail units to name a few.

These highly versatile systems are individually sized to suit every possible scenario over 50PE.

How does the Tricel Maxus work?

Tricel Maxus utilises highly effective SAF technology treating wastewater in 4 stages.

How does the Tricel Maxus work

1. The settlement tank:

Wastewater enters into the Tricel Maxus System in the settlement tank. Here primary treatment occurs. Heavy solids are separated out of the wastewater and settle out of the wastewater to form a sludge on the base of the tank. Lighter solids, such as oils fats, or grease, float to the top of the wastewater and are retained within the settlement tank.

2. The buffer tank:

From here the partially treated wastewater enters the buffer tank. The buffer tank will even out any fluctuations for the incoming water load. Pumps located at the bottom of the buffer tank feed the wastewater forward into the treatment plant​.

3. The biological treatment zone:

In this zone, the submerged aerated filter, with a large surface area for the microbes, is exposed to heavy aeration as the wastewater passes through. The system will never clog and does not need any maintenance or chemicals.

4. The clarifier:

In the clarifier, bio sludge from the treatment process settles out of the treated liquid. Airlift pumps recirculate the bio sludge from the base of the tank back to the settlement tank. The fully treated liquid is now ready to discharge from the plant.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Excellent treatment from proven SAF technology.
 
  • Ideal for seasonal loads of constant loads. The control panel will automatically adjust to the incoming load to ensure optimum performance.
 
  • Extensively tested and ETA verified for holiday home applications. The system will go into power-saving mode during periods of no flow and restart once a flow is detected without the need for any manual inputs.
 
  • Swift back up and service located in Ireland. Range of service contracts available.
 
  • Full design engineered solutions offered. Bespoke solutions are offered for every unique site to ensure the best performance. GRP or Concrete settlement tank options.
 
  • Flexible installation options to suit any site. This can fit plants into difficult sites or simply save space.
 
  • Versatile technology which can adapt to different loadings or effluent strengths.
 
  • Simple operation using long-life reliable components leading to low running costs. No moving parts within the plant making it easy to maintain.
