Wastewater treatment systems

Is my wastewater treatment system a Tricel one?

When buying a house with a wastewater treatment system already installed, you may not know what is the manufacturer or brand of this system?

We will help you to identify if it’s a Tricel one.

We will go through installed pictures of each one of our solutions.

Tricel Novo, wastewater treatment plant installed

The Tricel Novo, our treatment plant, provides a high-quality wastewater treatment while ensuring compliance with the environmental protection and EU regulations: EN12566-3 CE Certification.

This system is simple and cost-effective, it can be easily installed as they don’t require a lot of space in your garden.

How can you identify if your wastewater treatment system is a Tricel Novo?

At Tricel we try to be as green as possible, this gives you the first clue. The Tricel Novo is totally underground except for the air blower, which will be off the ground (if it’s not remote or deported).

If your wastewater treatment plant is a Tricel Novo you should see a green lid above ground as you can see in the pictures below.

Tricel Vento, septic tank installed

The Tricel Vento, our septic tank, is able to hold wastewater for an adequate amount of time for the solids to drop to the bottom to form sludge and the lighter material to rise to the top of the liquid to form a scum. Other treatment systems such as filters can be added to it.

Tricel septic tanks meet EN12566-1 requirements, which test both the quality of the components and the overall performance of the septic tank.

The septic tank will be installed totally underground, you will just be able to see above ground two little lid circles which allow desludging.

Tricel Puraflo, packaged filter installed

The Tricel Puraflo, our packaged filter, is ideal for secondary treatment following a septic tank and tertiary treatment following a wastewater treatment plant.

This filter is made with coconut fibre, a mixture of biological, chemical, and physical processes to treat the effluent as it filters through the fibre media. The treated effluent flows from the Puraflo modules and disperses itself into the ground through a percolation area.

Once installed, you will be able to see the Puraflo lid, usually as high as the ground, it will depend on your land. As you can see in the last picture below, it’s a dark green lid.

Tricel Sandcel, sand polishing filter installed

The Tricel Sandcel, our sand polishing filter, is designed to the EPA Code of Practice as a tertiary treatment system. The filters consist of stratified layers of certified sands which provides a dual function of polishing the effluent from a wastewater treatment system and disposing of the treated liquid into groundwater.

Those sand filters are enclosed in GRP impermeable panels which will not rot or decay, ensuring the structure of the filter will hold for many years. It has a small footprint: only 16m2 area for a 6-person application, eliminating the need for a large percolation area.

Tricel Sandcel can be installed under or overground at varying heights to suit all site conditions, with all pipework accessible from a service pod, as you can see in the pictures below.
