Aero-Fac® SDS (Sludge Digestion System)
Upgrade WWTP's to 100% Total On-Site Treatment
Aero-Fac® itself is a high-process-rate, modular wastewater treatment system that has been well proven in a variety of municipal and industrial wastewater applications in all types of climates. The Aero-Fac® SDS version can be employed to act as a sludge digestion facility, receiving sludge from other conventional treatment works or sources.
- Sludge digestion co-located at mechanical works
- Eliminates expensive additional sludge handling
- Eliminates sludge tanker movements
- Lowers carbon footprint
- Saves money and is easy to operate
- Simple to build, and is tried and tested
The Aero-Fac® SDS at West Newton in Norfolk (Click graphic on left to enlarge) has over 10 years of operation where sludge from the adjacent mechanical plant has been deposited into the Aero-Fac® SDS cell. The SDS system has been designed, developed and tested in the field in response to the needs of the industry for cost effective, practical solutions to wastewater treatment.
Suitable for Large, Medium and Small Populations
Aero-Fac is modular and can be scaled to handle any size flow and population. The modular design allows phased construction or multi-location options.
Mechanically & Biochemically Simplified For Reliability, Low OPEX & Capital Equipment Longevity
Aero-Fac® is a high-process-rate, small footprint wastewater treatment system that has been well proven with a variety of municipal and industrial wastewater applications in all types of climates. Aero-Fac® employs an advanced and optimised form of a completely biological aerated facultative treatment process that automatically adjusts to handle extreme variations in flows and loadings. Aero-Fac® incorporates fast and easy construction techniques, uses little energy, requires exceptionally simplified operator skills, almost no maintenance, and yet turns out effluent quality that can be superior for reuse and irrigation.

Aero-Fac® Offers Clear Benefits
100% Stainless Steel
No plastic. No rubber membranes. No hoses. No poly materials at all. 100% of the critical diffused air aeration modules and headers are stainless steel and designed to last a lifetime with virtually no maintenance
No Membrane Maintenance
The entire diffuser assembly is self-cleaning. Nor are there any membranes to clean or replace or any moving parts whatsoever. Eliminating membrane replacement alone can save thousands of pounds annually.
Aero-Fac® uses low-pressure fan blowers requiring virtually no maintenance, practically no routine replacement parts and an almost unlimited lifetime.
Windpower provides 30-80% of the energy needed for wastewater processing. Unique wind powered SERIES 3 aerator/mixers have been proven in severe wastewater treatment applications for years, providing aeration, process acceleration and biological optimisation.
High Quality Effluent
Water from Aero-Fac® treatment systems not only meets rigid standards, it is also better in overall quality due to advanced stabilisation of all biochemistry. This makes it ideal for water reuse options.
