our unique patented distribution system
Our x-perco® trickling filter uses the percolation process on a filtering medium, xylit, to purify wastewater. After the decantation process, the water is distributed evenly over the xylit by means of the aquacan®, a rotative bucket designed by eloy water.
designed by eloy water
The aquacan® is a unique device in the world for the distribution of effluent on a filter. It was developed by eloy water and is used in our x-perco® concrete C-90 and polyethylene R-90. The distribution system, equipped with a bubble level, consists of a rotating tipper which allows the homogeneous distribution of the water on the filter medium, the xylit.
After the decantation operation, the “pre-treated” water arrives by gravity flow in the aquacan®, our tilting tipper. The aquacan® fills up and tilts as soon as the volume of water is sufficient to be dispersed on the xylit by a distribution network made up of pierced pipes. The aquacan® allows the water to be distributed evenly over the entire surface of the media, thus ensuring that all of the xylit present in the tank is used.
