UltraClear domestic systems have been designed to meet the NSW Health Department Guidelines. All systems were tested at the AWTS Manufacturers Association Ltd test site located at the Moss Vale Sewer Plant, with testing program monitored by JAS/ANZ accredited company SAI Global (previously QAS). Testing in this Southern Highlands site provided extreme temperature ranges during testing, from less than -1° Celsius to over 30° Celsius, ensuring the systems function in all climates, unlike other systems that have been tested only in warm climates.
An average of over 1,600 litres per day of raw sewage, with BOD of between 200 and 300 mg/L, was pumped through the system during testing of Model Ultra 10. The average daily loading of raw sewage during testing was 1,600 litres for Model ST8 and 2,000 litres for ST10. The average BOD for the single tanks was 183.3 mg/L. The minimum BOD influent required by NSWHD is 150 mg/L. All UltraClear systems consistently achieved far in excess of the required results during testing. UltraClear has been proven to remove over 98% of suspended solids, with removal of harmful micro organisms. UltraClear was able to achieve these results, whilst maintaining a low chlorine residual, reducing the impact on your environment. This ensures that the water irrigated onto your property is clear and safe.
UltraClear systems have been designed by Darryl Rebbeck, a consultant in the manufacturing industry, who has had over 18 years experience in the servicing industry and has a full knowledge of the operation of most types of aerated systems. The systems have been designed for efficient maintenance and servicing by providing easy and full access to all chambers for complete maintenance. This enables the system to function at optimum efficiency at all times. The single tank systems have measurements of 550mm for ST10 and 780mm for ST8 from bottom of inlet to top of lid, which allow for a greater fall to the tank from the house, for easier installation and also decreasing the need for risers. UltraClear systems are manufactured using concrete tanks and baffles manufactured by Highland Tanks Pty Ltd, at 16 Gantry Place, Braemar, to comply with Australian Standards to AS/NZS 1546.1:2008. NSW Health Department Certificate of Accreditation No. CofA 005-20582 and StandardsMark Licence SMKB20582.
Reduction in Nitrogen Levels for Environmentally Sensitive Area
During the testing of the Ultra Clear AWTS the treated effluent was tested for total N (TN) concentrations. The treatment process has the capacity to reduce the total N concentration, as noted by NSW Health on our Certificate of Accreditation.
