Solids Interceptors


Solids Interceptor

The ParkUSA® SolidsTrooper® is a solids interceptor that can be used in commercial establishments to collect and hold excessive amounts of solid 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. The SolidsTrooper® is a solids and sediment interceptor that consist of a multi-compartment basin and unique separation technology for solids and sediment separation. Typical applications for Solids Interceptors include food processing, zoos, ag barns, healthcare, glass bottlers, dumpster areas and manufacturing facilities. Waste discharge loadings from these facilities contain solid substances like waste grindings, potato peels, rice, aquarium gravel, animal solids, glass, trash, dental waste, jewels, plaster, hair, ceramic waste, fish bones and meat trimmings. The SolidsTrooper® is compliant with both UPC and IPC plumbing codes. The SolidsTrooper® can be equipped with a debris screening technology that prevents string, rags, buttons and other materials from entering the public sanitary sewer system.

The SolidsTrooper is typically located outside of the building and buried below grade. The wastewater exits the laundry via gravity flow and enters the interceptor. As the waste-water enters the interceptor’s first compartment, the water velocity is significantly reduced, allowing for separation and fall-out of the solids and sediment. Water travels into the second compartment through the piping manifold where further separation occurs. The water will exit thru an outlet pipe positioned between the floating and settling layers. Neutral buoyant particles are further separated by the internal effluent screen. The buried interceptor is typically constructed of precast concrete, providing years of continuous service. The interceptor contains multiple compartments where the solids will flocculate and float to the surface, and heavier solids will sink to the bottom. The discharging effluent comprises of the solids-free water between these layers. To ensure maximum performance of interceptor, a sample well is recommended downstream of the interceptor. As its name implies, water sample can be drawn and lab tested to determine sediment (TSS) content and interceptor performance.
