Containerised FAST wastewater treatment
The packaged aerobic wastewater plants Fixed Activated Sludge Treatment (FAST) process is the latest in the range of wastewater treatment equipment from CST Wastewater Solutions. FAST is a portable solution to wastewater treatment, offering easy transport, installation and operation with minimal engineering and maintenance.
It also offers easy transport facility, with a body similar to a standard shipping container. FAST is designed to offer protection against hydraulic shock loads and surrounding environmental factors.
Available in individual unit capacities of hundreds of cubic metres a day, which can be increased further by the use of interconnected multiple units, FAST is built into standard six- by 12-metre shipping containers, or concrete or fibreglass units as required.
In addition to achieving higher loading rates within a smaller footprint, effluent produced can be recycled into suitable industrial, public facility and commercial processes. FAST achieves nutrient removal for applications containing high levels of nitrogen, a water pollutant that has increased significantly in industrial, commercial and municipal applications. The process involves a fixed-film, aerobic treatment system designed for tackling variable load and flow conditions.
The FAST system has been proven successful through applications across many companies including, BHP Billiton, Bechtel Pacific, Blue Circle Southern Cement, Dampier Salt and Wakefield Colliery.
