The concept behind the use of treatment trains, being a series of storm water treatment systems, is so that the total system of the site in question covers every environmental treatment required. The PROTECTOR systems come easily combinable to form treatment trains in such a way to remove all the required contaminants from the water flow, as well as protecting the tertiary and finer treatment systems from clogging and increased system maintenance. The usual need for the use of PROTECTOR treatment trains come in the shape of requiring to cover a wide range of pollutant removal and the need to reach a certain percentage of contaminants remaining in storm water as set by environmental government standards, specifically in oil removal and hydrocarbon reduction. Furthermore, these treatment trains may be required to have large retention systems for storage, as well as pumping stations to ensure that the flow of storm water and its treatment is constant and controlled.
There are 4 Levels of treatment according to the team at PROTECTOR. These consist of:
- Primary treatment – This is the treatment of gross pollutants and large sediment. The need for these systems seems redundant in various circumstances, but in terms of the need for their existence in treatment trains cannot go overlooked. These systems remove all forms of large debris, gross pollutants and large sediment that would otherwise cause blockages in the later stages of treatment. This level of treatment comes in the form of our ECOPROTECTOR. It is included in almost all forms of treatment trains.
- Secondary treatment – These systems remove fine particles, sedimentation and attached particles from storm water. They are required for hydrocarbon capture and are used in these treatment train systems to lower the percentage of hydrocarbons and oils, as well as being standalone systems (specifically the HYDRAPROTECTOR) for use in hydrocarbon heavy areas such as mining and refuelling stations. This level of treatment comes in the form of the STORMPROTECTOR and the HYDRAPROTECTOR. They also have high levels of storage and retention in their systems so can double as retention tanks as well.
- Tertiary treatment – These systems are used in the final stages of treatment trains to remove fine and colloidal nutrients and heavy metals. These systems are used when requirements for water are stricter and require removal of more difficult to remove pollutants. These systems include the ENVIROPROTECTOR, MAXIPROTECTOR, XTREAMPROTECTOR and the BIOPROTECTOR
- Retention systems – These systems are usually placed at the end of our treatment train systems, or at any point where storage, detention or retention is required. These come in the form of our STORMBRAKE system, or our horizontal retention tanks coming in any size or capacity required.
