Solids interceptors can be used to collect and hold excessive amounts of solids substances found in wastewater. A solids interceptor should be installed in areas, as determined by the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ), where pretreatment of waste streams is necessary. Some AHJs require the addition of screens or baskets that prevent solids greater than one-half inch (1/2”) in diameter from entering the sanitary sewer system. In some cases, project requirements call for even finer separation.
Holding tanks are used when the waste stream is corrosive, toxic, flammable or heavily loaded with oxygen demanding or a public sewer system is not available. Such untreated waste can physically damage the plumbing as well as upset the wastewater treatment plant that receives the waste. Laboratories, industrial facilities, hospitals, aircraft hangar fire protection systems as well as residents, and apartment complexes are examples where holding tanks may be used.
Wastewater is water that has been adversely affected in quality by human influence and is released into a collection system. ParkUSA provides many products designed to convey, treat, store, and measure wastewater. Our products include: piping, manholes, grease/lint interceptors, oi-water, separators, pump lift stations, acid neutralization systems, decontamination systems, solids interceptors, and flume measurement systems.
Screening and grinding devices are recommended for waste water and stormwater applications where course debris and high solid concentrations occur. Screen assemblies capture unwanted floatable pollutants from entering wastewater collection and treatment systems as well as stormwater sewer systems and water bodies. Grinding applications include detention and correctional institutions where vandalism is a frequent occurrence. Inmates are known to “stuff” sheets, towels, and shoes down toilets to cause flooding of the building. The macerator grinds up these solids avoiding costly flooding and maintenance.
When water is contaminated by waste products from facilities like hospitals or restaurants, it requires special attention before it can be released into mainstream sewage. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state governments mandate certain operations to protect the environment and sewer systems. From grease interceptors to decontaminating wastewater from hospitals, ParkUSA has the solution you’re looking for. ParkUSA offers a full line of treatment products that intercept, hold, and meter waste water flow, as well as neutralize and even macerate or grind foreign materials in order for the treated water to meet regulatory safety standards.
