Aerobic Treatment

Anua AeroCell 
The AeroCell recirculating media filter from Anua utilizes synthetic media housed in an engineered pod. The open-cell foam cubes have high surface area and porosity, which balance water movement and oxygen availability. The media will not degrade over time. Pretreated effluent is sprayed over the media using special helical spray nozzles, which provide uniform distribution over the entire surface area within the pod. The treated effluent is recirculated through the media multiple times, ensuring optimum treatment. The media properties and timed dosing allow for large loading rates, ensuring a small footprint. It provides significant nitrogen reduction and is certified to NSF/ANSI 40 Class 1. Multiple pod sizes are available for commercial facilities. 336-547-9338;

NextGen Septic GenX Retrofit
GenX Retrofit septic technology from NextGen Septic can be installed in any approved septic tank and is designed to repair a clogged soil drainfield. It includes a compact, stand-alone, automated, two-stage treatment system for domestic sewage that produces a clean-water output. The sewage is collected in a tank, where solids break down under anoxic conditions, while the wastewater is aerated with biomedia and low-noise submersible pumps in the secondary compartment. The second stage occurs in a separate treatment unit, treating nitrogen and phosphorus through a no-maintenance membrane and ozone disinfection system. The process lets water and salt pass through, while rejecting the solids and dissolved organic contaminants to create an output suitable for surface discharge. According to the maker, the clogged field begins to percolate water in as little as eight to 12 weeks when the biomat is thin enough to allow water to get through at a reasonable rate. 513-673-3583;
