AMERICAN SAND FILTERS

RECIRCULATING SAND FILTER SYSTEMS
RECIRCULATION VALVE


PATENT #'s 4,818,384 & 4,822,485

SANDFILTER EFFLUENT QUALITY WITH 40% NITROGEN REMOVAL

The American Manufacturing Company, Inc. Recirculating Sand Filter Treatment package with Recirc-Valve is based on the EPA design Standard. The system will provide enhanced effluent quality with simple maintenance and very low operational costs. The Recir-Valve requires the final discharge to be determined by the elevation of the pump station. The filter is dosed periodically by a timer. The periodic dose is continuous so filter resting is less, and maintenance events may increase but the quality potential is enhanced due to the filter being continuously active.

TANKS ARE AVAILABLE WHEREVER SEPTIC SYSTEMS ARE SOLD. Most septic tank manufacturers should already have the necessary forms that can easily be adapted to configure this system. Recirculating filters differ from single pass filters in that a Recirculating filter is much smaller and a device is required to return filtrate to the dosing tank. Coarser media can also be used because of the recirculation to provide trouble-free operation.

CONTROL PANEL WITH FOUR FLOATS

The control has a Nema 1 or Nema 4X rated enclosure with removable aluminum backplate for component mounting, IEC rated pump contactor, adjustable pump run timer, high level peak enable circuit, Hand-Off-Auto toggle switches for all operations, pump run light, indicator lights, separate control and pump breakers, control fuse, and finger-safe terminal blocks with a neatly bundled wiring harness. The Control unit is U.L. APPROVED AND LABELED. The time dosed system will be either with twenty four hour selection or a repeat cycle timer, both may have manual override capability to completely operate the system while bypassing the timers.

RECIRC VALVE
Patent # 4,822,485

The Recirc Valve is a 4" PVC Ball Check type PVC bypass device with stainless steel weighted ball and neoprene seal. The ball check drop leg is molded in one piece for best return efficiency.

DISTRIBUTOR LATERAL SETS

The laterals are sized for the pump and provide suitable operation under a wide range of heads. It provides an excellent method to disperse the effluent over the bed. A lateral curve is available and will allow the designer to determine heads necessary to operate the system. Design heads at the lateral of 1' to 2' are recommended.

SUBMERSIBLE PUMP

The pump is typically a 1/2 hp, 115 volt, 1 phase septic effluent pump with 1/2" solids handling capacity.
