A Hydrok solution for Wastewater Phosphorus Removal
The Hydrok-Mecana pile cloth tertiary treatment solution is currently under FFT-scale trials at several of the UK water companies to achieve ultra-low phosphorus consents. A trial took place at the Severn Trent Water multi solution test at Packington STW - the water company is evaluating six technologies trialed at its Packington sewage treatment works in Leicestershire, this has been followed by current trials taking place with South West Water, United Utilities, Thames Water and Yorkshire Water as part of the national series of trials.
The Hydrok-Mecana system is a muti purpose treatment that is able to be used for tertiary phosphorus removal in combination with precipitation/flocculation as a bespoke design for Ptot consent from 1mg/l to less than 0.1mg/l. This is in addition to the use for; Tertiary Filtration for TSS reduction downstream of humus or secondary settlement tanks (<5mg/l TSS achievable) and for Micro-pollutant ‘Priority Substance’ removal. It is an alternative to fixed film biological treatment humus tanks for removal of TSS and pre-filtration for fixed bed nitrification stages
The Hydrok-Mecana systems can be installed within concrete chambers or supplied as bespoke off-site manufactured stainlesss steel units to help speed up installation and reduce distruption at the plant during the process.
