How do container plants work?

For smaller containerised sewage treatment and wastewater treatment plants, all processes are preinstalled in a single container. The combined processes include primary settlement, secondary treatment and clarification. These smaller container plants are totally plug and play packaged units, ideal for mobile and temporary applications.

Primary treatment/screening – For larger containerised solutions, the use of different system modules is dependent on the influent and the effluent requirements and characteristics.

A mechanical pre-treatment (removal) of the inorganic coarse materials and solids in the wastewater, by means of a sieving screw, is necessary. This can be constructed in or on the container. If it is necessary to remove sand and grease, we install compact units to make the separation of these materials possible.

Holding tanks collect the removed waste constituents which can be disposed of separately. Primary sludge goes for sludge treatment. In smaller systems, primary treatment can be integrated into the system by use of settling in a pre-treatment tank.

Biological treatment – In the biological stage, the dissolved contaminants are converted into sludge and gases in the wastewater by means of microorganisms. The biological treatment process can incorporate an SBR type system, or a fixed bed cascade. The type of biological treatment depends on the wastewater type and concentration.

The biological treatment process and all necessary controls are fully integrated into the container.

Clarification – High flow capacity final clarification of the treated effluent is accomplished via the use if lamella separators pre-installed into containers. These provide a final degree of treatment prior to effluent discharge.

Tertiary Treatment – Where stringent discharge limits exist, tertiary treatment can be integrated into the treatment process. This includes, but is not limited to chemical dosing, phosphorous reduction and disinfection. For each form of tertiary treatment, there are multiple options – e.g for disinfection we can offer chlorination, ozonation or UV irradiation.

Advantages of our container plants are as follows;

  • The ability to operate in underload and overload conditions
  • Simple maintenance and operation by unskilled staff
  • The modular nature of the system allows for rapid expansion and addition of further treatment levels
  • Fully automatic operation
  • Installation of the system is possible within a short time period as the plant is delivered fully pre-installed and only has to be connected to the power grid
  • Standardised spare parts can be used for maintenance which are available locally regardless of location
  • The container treatment plants are designed for all climate zones and achieve maximum efficiency in each process step
  • Decommissioning and shut down of the mobile treatment system is possible in a very short time frame so that they can be built on a new site again easily
  • There are no buildings or enclosures required, only a level base to install the container onto
  • Low energy costs because of the integrated energy saving mode
  • Imperceptible noise because the entire container treatment plant is enclosed
  • Low costs for scheduling and construction

    DCR Aggregates

    Got a system for 800 workers at one of our quarries in a remote location. Put out to tender and biocell water were simply the best value and had all necessary documentation for shipping the container to west africa.

    Otto Relengi

    I procure equipment for some partner companies in oil and gas. I have used a containerised system for 300 workers for a remote location in west africa. Good service, including onsite visits for setup and training. System in place for 4 months now. Fully automatic and no problems so my client is pleased.

    Al Wasood

    We replaced an old DAF unit with a modern one from Biocell due to increased activity at our factory. It is so simple relative to our older unit so I am very pleased with the purchase.
