Commercial SeptiTech® STAAR™ Filter Systems

Bookstore Restaurant Wellfleet_MA_2_sm

The SeptiTech® STAAR™ (Smart Trickling Anaerobic/Aerobic Recirculation) Commercial Filter Systems utilize a biopack plastic media to treat high organic loads that integrate with other technologies and accessories.  The simple, automatic and reliable equalization and clarification process of the STAAR™ biological trickling filter technology also maintains low levels of Nitrate-N with all below-grade components that fit in readily available concrete, plastic or fiberglass tanks. The “Smart” controller of the STAAR™ systems recognizes situations dealing with peak, low, intermittent or no flow conditions. SeptiTech’s “Smart” technology allows the system to go into a sleep mode that will dial down activity and eventually shut all power off until normal flow conditions are detected. This allows the STAAR™ system to achieve lower operating costs and power requirements. Additional features are also available to further enhance quality and dependability.

Utilizing an enhanced, biological, unsaturated media filter process, the SeptiTech® STAAR™ System is ETV-EPA verified and NSF/ANSI Standard 40/245 certified. With a disinfection system and a low-impact technology for irrigating plants (or other non-potable use), the patented SeptiTech® STAAR™ trickling filter systems are designed for direct discharge or water reuse in mind.

How Does the System Work?

  1. Effluent from the primary settling zone flows into the bottom of the trickling filter mixing with the treated wastewater.
  2. Wastewater is then pumped up into the trickling filter.  The pump simultaneously draws a robust amount of air.  The air combines with the uniform spray providing efficient treatment as the water and air combination trickles down through the filter media.  For the larger Commercial System, there are two stages of two types of media with multiple recirculation methods.
  3. The SeptiTech® STAAR™ Filter Panel Senses “surge flow” and “low flow” activity; automatically adjusting the discharge rate as needed.  It even senses a “no flow” situation to “slow down” or put the system in “Sleep” mode.
  4. Systematically, wastewater is pumped back to the settling zone to remove sludge from the trickling filter thus all sludge management is in the settling zone.
  5. After treatment, a pump will send small, frequent time doses to ensure optimal soil absorption.
