Process of Wastewater Treatment System

The ever-increasing population of today, produces greater volumes of residential and industrial wastewater, which causes pollution if not controlled. Australians are environmentally conscious as a rule. Many industries, households, governments, etc. all use wastewater treatment to control pollution. This system functions to expedite the natural process of purifying wastewater.

The wastewater treatment process requires a series of tanks, screens, grit chambers, sedimentation tank, filters, etc., to achieve the three desired levels of treatment. Finding a trusted and reliable Australian wastewater equipment manufacturer can be problematic; this is whereby-Jas Engineering can help. We have been servicing the industry for 30 years aright across the country, so we are confident we can help meet your requirements.

This wastewater treatment equipment is used to successfully bring about the three stages of treatment as follows:

Primary Stage – removes large objects, such as rags and sticks that might clog pipes or do damage to the equipment through use of screens. After screening, the smaller particles are removed through the grit chamber. The sedimentation tank separates the liquid from the solid. Note that primary treatment alone, do not have the ability to meet the demand for higher quality of wastewater. This is where the secondary treatment comes in.

Secondary Stage – uses biological methods such as activated sludge, which is a bacteria-containing microorganism responsible for breaking down organic matters. Activated sludge is used jointly, with aeration and agitation. Aeration is the process of bringing air into close contact with liquid waste; which allows bacteria to break down the organic matter into safe by-products. Then there are the trickling filters which are a bed of coarse media that drains below the tank. The lagoons or waste ponds rely upon the reciprocal action of sunlight, microorganisms, algae and oxygen.

Tertiary Stage – is done, once the first two stages have been completed. The wastewater is disinfected with chlorine or other compounds for disinfection. Ozone or ultra violet light may also be used. At this step, almost 99% of impurities from the sewage is removed, giving you an effluent that is almost drinking quality.
