Advanced Treatment Units

Anua Puraflo Dn

The Puraflo Dn peat fiber biofilter system from Anua provides enhanced denitrification below 20 mg/L through recirculating 50% of the treated effluent back to the front end of the septic tank. Flow proportioning is accomplished through simple adaptations to external plumbing, allowing for a single-pump system with no aerators. In recirculation mode, each module is rated for domestic strength at 240-gpd total hydraulic loading equivalent and 120-gpd forward flow. It can be designed and installed as a combined treatment and effluent dispersal system. Treated effluent exits the modules via weep holes around the perimeter at the module base and flows into the dispersal system situated directly beneath the modules. Available dispersal system options are in-ground pad or mounded pad. 336-547-9338;
