Harlequin Plastics has launched its new CAP9 Compact Sewage Treatment Plant for domestic installations of up to 9 inhabitants at the Royal Highland Show, one of the UK’s biggest outdoor events.
CAP9 is a continuous aeration plant which operates using a unique bio-media system and delivers a pollutant removal level of 96.2% whilst also combatting common problems associated with small packaged domestic plants. This new tank is specifically designed for rural householders with up to nine inhabitants or approximately seven bedrooms.
It is Harlequin’s largest tank to date and one that has been in development for some time based on the growing needs of the rural market. The CAP9 has been designed to provide durability and stability with ease of installation, two key factors which contribute to easy maintenance access.
This new tank delivers particularly low operating costs and is sure to deliver significant benefits to those rural dwellers or businesses that are keen to scale their current sewage treatment needs.
The CAP9 bio-media system means there are no fixed media eliminating blockages that are commonly found in smaller treatment plants. Made from tough durable polyethylene, it is easy to transport and has a wide base for stability. Its compact size and lightweight also promotes low maintenance reducing costs.
At full occupancy, the system only needs to be emptied every 12 months, with maintenance of the compressor easily carried out. With a near-silent air compressor housed beneath the flat lid, the operation of the CAP9 system is virtually silent.
