Sedimentation tank for drainage system
In the Gazebo monolithic system, the clarified water leaving the Imhoff tank is treated in the aerobic percolating filter which contains plastic bulk fill material (circular disks with a large surface/volume ratio). The organic substance in the wastewater is further broken down thanks to the aerobic microorganisms which cling to the fill material.
As the clarified wastewater flows over these plastic disks, a slimy organic film develops on their surface consisting of various microorganisms such as bacteria, protozoa and fungi, as well as more complex organisms like metazoa and adsorbed and degraded organic material.
The organic substances are caught in the slimy layer by adsorption and direct assimilation and, in this way, non-biodegradable and inorganic substances can also be trapped.
After exiting the percolating filter, the effluent undergoes the last stage of the treatment, final decantation (e.g. Imhoff tank), to separate the sludge from the clarified water, which flows by gravity down towards the final outlet channel.
