ENSEP SEWAGE TREATMENT SYSTEM
Baima Sewage Treatment Plant, Sichuan Province, China
Description of the demonstration:
This 5 KLD unit was installed in April 2019 at the Baima Treatment Plant in Luzhou, Sichuan, China.
The ensep System is contained in a hopper made from durable high-density polyethylene. The hopper houses the membrane coil, spray nozzle and associated plumbing. At the base of the hopper is a small reservoir that collects water and sludge from the coil above. Vents at the top and around the middle of the hopper allow air to move in and out of the hopper, providing oxygen for the bio-film.
The ensep System has been paired with a filter media cartridge to further remove fine sediment and dissolved pollutants.
The composition of the influent varied greatly from one day to the next.
The Enviss media cartridge was helpful in evening out the performance of the ensep System when it was treating effluent similar to dirty stormwater.
