THE ECOPOD SEWAGE TREATMENT SYSTEM

Our ECOPOD system is ANSI/NSF40 certified. The ECOPOD treatment system may be combined with other treatment methods to achieve a specific effluent quality.

 

The design flow for an ECOPOD STP accepting residential wastewater is based on the same criteria set out for similar types of package sewage treatment plants.

 

In British Columbia, Canada, these criteria are outlined in the standard practice manual issued by the Ministry of Health Services and updated from time to time.

 

A typical arrangement consists of a trash tank, the reactor tank and, if needed, a pump chamber (fiberglass or concrete) with the media housing installed, which contains the attached media (growth media). This is a specifically engineered plastic unit, designed to provide optimal conditions for the forming of biomass.

 

The biomass is the basis of the excessive bacteria growth which is capable of digesting (breaking down) biodegradable waste into carbon dioxide and water.

 

An external air blower is connected to the reactor tank to provide the necessary air (oxygen) to the system. There are no moving mechanical parts or filters in the ECOPOD wastewater treatment system, therefor there are no cleaning or replacement parts inside the reactor tanks.

In addition to BOD and TSS, ammonia nitrogen is one of the unwanted contaminants in wastewater. In the ECOPOD system, a 60%+ removal rate of total nitrogen is common. The result of this process is a clear, odorless effluent discharge which will meet and most often exceed the Health Department standards.

The ECOPOD treatment plant is available for Type 2 and Type 3 applications in 3 categories:
 

  • The ECOPOD combo

  • The ECOPOD system

  • The ECOPOD kit (can be installed into a concrete tank)

 

In the combo models, all parts are assembled into one unit, ready to be installed into the excavation. Only 2 hook-ups, inlet/outlet, and you are ready to go.

The ECOPOD system Type 2 also consists of a trash tank, ECOPOD unit, and pump chamber (if needed). However, this model uses 3 separate tanks, and must be installed as a single unit.
