MUNICIPAL LAGOON WASTEWATER TREATMENT

A SPIN ON FILTRATION

CHALLENGES

Municipalities often struggle with operations and maintenance of their wastewater treatment system. With increasing industrial and domestic growth, upgrading the conventional water treatment infrastructure to provide consistent water quality is expensive. Aging infrastructure cannot support population growth, and repair costs are really high. Across the world, lagoons are experiencing challenges with discharge compliance, capacity, and maintenance.
Furthermore, municipalities and Native reserves typically cannot add a cell or build a treatment plant without additional funding.
Additionally, local wastewater has large amounts of phosphorus, ammonia, chloroform, total suspended solids (TSS), biological oxygen demands (BOD), and chemical oxygen demand (COD). When these nutrients are discharged into the environment without treatment, they cause disturbances to the ecosystem.

THE SWIRLTEX SERVICE ADVANTAGE

There are multiple advantages of the Swirltex system. Unlike other treatment options, the Swirltex system guarantees high-quality effluent which can be sold for recovery & reuse, or recreational use. Our service is flexible with the modular shared infrastructure between communities. Maintenance is included in our service and our client pays for performance. Our system creates new opportunities for water-centric crops and businesses. Additionally, the conversion of an environmental liability into are source is cost efficient for local industries (golf, etc.).

THE SWIRLTEX SOLUTION

Swirltex has transformed the municipal water treatment industry by developing an innovative enhanced membrane filtration system. Our mobile containerized Swirltex Lagoon Unit (SLU) includes a micro-diffuser and a membrane component. The increased contaminant buoyancy and vortex flow pattern inside the membrane eliminates membrane fouling and reclamation of water.
Furthermore, our concentrate stream is hyper-oxygenated, boosting bacterial activity upon return to lagoon. Moreover, The Swirltex system is superior to traditional methods as it delivers substantial operational and economic benefits to our clients. Some of these advantages include:

  • Enhanced removal of iron, TSS, bacteria, phosphorus, BOD, and COD
  • Significant reduction in energy consumption
  • Increase in permeate production 70 – 80%
  • Automated low maintenance water treatment system
  • Reclamation of wastewater
  • Reduction in environmental footprint with Swirltex’s clean technology wastewater treatment

TREATMENT OPTIONS

At Swirltex, we aim to help our clients find the most efficient solution for their wastewater management needs. Our clean technology system outperforms traditional filtration through the unique combination of spiral flow and contaminant buoyancy manipulation. Our unit is modular and simple, therefore enabling ease of implementation and operation. We provide our clients with multiple options, some of which include monthly rentals, pilot testing, unit purchases, and retrofits. Swirltex has flexible solutions for the toughest wastewater streams.
