Bord na Mona is packaging American Manufacturing’s Perc-Rite drip systems with Puraflo Peat Fiber Biofilter onsite wastewater treatment systems in difficult soil condition environments.

According to John Payne, Bord na Mona’s executive vice-president, the first such combination system under this strategic partnership has already been successfully installed at a residence in Charleston, South Carolina.

He said: ‘Our partnership with American Manufacturing promises to bring a new level of onsite treatment quality and flexibility to areas known for having difficult soil conditions, such as shallow bedrock, clay and high water tables or where the customer wants to reclaim the treated water for irrigation.

‘These combination systems will feature a single control panel that significantly simplifies long-term operation and maintenance,’ added Payne.

American Manufacturing’s Perc-Rite drip system is a single- or multi-zoned fluid handling system for drip dispersal, utilising disc filtration followed by low-volume timed dosing.

The drip dispersal system delivers the treated wastewater equally to a dispersal area providing unsaturated flow for an aerobic soil environment, resulting in enhanced performance.

The company offers systems that feature anywhere from one to multiple zones all managed by a single control panel.

Bord na Mona’s Puraflo system, which is certified by NSF to NSF/ANSI Standard 40, is a low-energy natural wastewater treatment solution for onsite wastewater treatment requirements.

Utilising a natural biofibrous peat filter media, Puraflo is described as a reliable and natural treatment system.

Delivered in a pre-assembled modular unit that saves on installation time, thus reducing costs, the Puraflo solution is compatible with drip dispersal systems, making it an ideal treatment solution for difficult soil conditions, lot size restrictive applications and water reuse irrigation.

It is a single-pass system that does not require blowers, complex control panels or recirculation pumps.

As a result, this low-power time-dosed solution provides savings for homeowners while meeting LEED and other Green Build standards.

The most common Puraflo system applications include individual residential sites, community cluster systems, light commercial, schools and subdivision developments.

The system is suitable for intermittent flow applications such as vacation homes, churches, parks and truck stops as it retains the beneficial bacteria in the media.

Its modular design enables the phasing of the construction.

The Puraflo treatment system is also suitable for repairs.

According to Payne, Bord na Mona’s partnership with American Manufacturing is open ended and will, in the future, include collaboration on other treatment and reuse solutions for both the residential and commercial market segments.

American Manufacturing has agreed to feature a selection of its products and solutions at the newly opened Bord na Mona Innovation Center in Greensboro, North Carolina.
