Receiving station helps ready plant for increased influent load  

Problem: Legislation for septic tanks in Florida may lead to increased septage volume at Indian River County’s residuals dewatering (biosolids) facility. Regulations may require inspection and pumping of septic tanks every three to five years.

Solution: The county chose a fully automated Raptor Septage Complete Plant from Lakeside Equipment. The compact, self-contained unit compacts and dewaters screenings to 40% solids. An overnight self-cleaning cycle stops the buildup of grit in the bottom of the unit. The system is pre-engineered, and all-stainless steel construction resists corrosion.

Result: Far more grit and rags are captured than anticipated. A 4-cubic-yard container is filled daily. There have been no equipment issues, and only basic daily maintenance is required. 630-837-5640;
