FEATURED PRODUCTS

Aqua Caiman™ In-Channel Articulating Rake Screen Aqua Caiman™ In-Channel Articulating Rake Screen

The Aqua Caiman™ represents the next generation of articulating rake screen. In designing the screen, Parkson combined over 40 years of experience working on thousands of in-channel screen installations with in-depth market and engineering research. This allowed us to better understand the weaknesses of existing multi-rake and articulating rake screens. Our engineers put design expertise into components where strength matters the most — frame, bars and chain. They also provided a smart design to reduce manufacturing costs. The result is the most competitively priced articulating rake screen that provides unmatched durability, ease of operation and protection of downstream process equipment.

The Aqua WashPress® can economically and effectively wash and dewater screenings from in channel and rotating screens in a variety of applications. The Aqua WashPress® will lower hauling and disposal costs by reducing weight and volume of screenings. Organics and biosolids are commonly caught along with the appropriately screened solids. If not removed, these items retain water, inhibit drainage, emit odors and result in excessive disposal costs.

Biolac® Long Sludge Age Process Biolac® Long Sludge Age Process

The Biolac® System is a well-accepted biological wastewater treatment process with over 25 years of experience and hundreds of successful installations treating municipal and industrial wastewater. Using an innovative long sludge age, activated sludge process, the Biolac® System provides an extremely simple and cost-effective solution for many treatment applications.

DynaCanter™ Decanter DynaCanter™ Decanter

Parkson offers two options for liquid removal from water and wastewater basins: effluent and supernatant decanters.  The Parkson DynaCanter™ is a floating style decanter used to remove treated effluent or supernatant from the upper portion of the basin.  The decanter utilizes a flex joint to allow vertical articulation as water levels move between high and low water levels.  The decanter collects water from below the surface to preclude foam, scum, or other floatables from the effluent.  A standard open / close valve is used in the effluent piping to control flow rate through the decanter.  No electro-mechanical components are used inside the basin making operation and maintenance convenient for the operator. 

DynaSand® EcoWash® DynaSand® EcoWash®

The Parkson DynaSand® EcoWash® Filter is a unique system that filters liquid suspensions to the designed effluent quality, while at the same time cleaning the sand bed so the filter is not shut down during the backwash time. Feed water is passed upwards through the sand bed and exits the top of the filter as clean water. At the same time, sand can be removed from the bottom, cleaned and returned to the top.  A small portion of the filtered water is used to wash the sand and leaves the filter as a reject stream.

EquaCel® Soluble BOD And Ammonia Removal Pretreatment System EquaCel® Soluble BOD And Ammonia Removal Pretreatment System

EquaCel® is a unique Wastewater Pretreatment process that utilizes the Parkson EquaReact® process along with Dissolved Air Floatation (DAF) technology as a system offering to achieve both hydraulic flow equalization and high efficiency soluble BOD and ammonia removal for Industrial wastewater pretreatment.

EcoCycle SBR™ Sequencing Batch Reactor EcoCycle SBR™ Sequencing Batch Reactor

The EcoCycle SBR™ from Parkson combines industry leading DynaPhase Control™ technology with high efficiency treatment schemes designed to provide reliable and flexible performance for today’s stringent effluent needs.  The EcoCycle SBR™ is a true-batch SBR design, which allows for an ideal anaerobic / anoxic fill period, perfect for biological phosphorus removal and Nitrogen removal.  The true-batch design will also allow for a perfect quiescent settling step, promoting ideal sludge settling and compaction before the decant of the treated effluent.  In the EcoCycle SBR™ basin designs are not limited by basin geometry or configuration.  Deep tank SBR basins are encouraged for better O2 transfer, which can lead to reduced operating expenses. 

EquaJet® High-Efficiency Nitrogen Removal Via Jet System EquaJet® High-Efficiency Nitrogen Removal Via Jet System

EquaJet is a unique Wastewater Treatment process that utilizes the Parkson Jet System and multi-stage Activated Sludge treatment as a system offering.
