The Cajun Aire aerobic sewage treatment system is an extended aeration activated sludge process. This type of treatment depends primarily on the use of air that is introduced into the wastewater from your home as soon as it enters the treatment unit. When air is introduced, it promotes the growth of organisms that break down the organic solids. The introduction of air into wastewater is called aeration. Aerationprovides dissolved oxygen that mixes with the wastewater promoting & sustaining the organisma or bacteria that break down the organic solids that enter the treatment plant.
The 1 Pretreatment Tank, the first stage of process receives raw sewage from the source and traps any non-biodegradable waste.
The 2 Aeration Chamber, introduces oxygen into the wastewater by means of an extremely quite & efficient 6 Linear Air Pump. This aeration process creates an oxygen rich enviroment for the growth of aerobic bacteria. These microscopic organisms digest the solids in the wastewater.
In the 3 Clarifier, the solids separate from the liquid and settle to the bottom. The matter is called activated sludge which is returned to the aeration chamber to be remixed. The clear liquid separates from the solids and continues to flow upward to the discharge pipe where it passes through the 4 Chlorinator for disinfection. (where required)
The 5 Holding Tank stores the chlorinated effluent for discharge through the chosen method of disposal. The Cajun Aire 7 Control Center monitors and controls the system, making it function at very low cost and maintenance to the homeowner.
