After gaining a solid reputation in the United States for the past years, the Advanced Enviro-Septic pipe, distributed by Chankar Environmental, became available to the Asia-Pacific region in 2010. Because of its versatility, the Advanced Enviro-Septic pipe can be used in many configurations.
The Advanced Enviro-Septic pipe is a patented product made from 4 components:
- A cylinder-shaped pipe, made out of high-density polyethylene, with a corrugated design proven to increase the surface of thermal exchange. The pipe is also perforated to let the effluent out. Each of the wall ridges is topped with oblique notches, creating a unique airflow system essential to the propagation of the bacteria responsible for the treatment of wastewater.
- The Bio-accelerator allows for a fast ramp-up time.
- An non-braided polypropylene fiber membrane covers the pipe and facilitates the oxygen supply while supporting the biomass.
- A non-woven, polypropylene geotextile canvas, sewn around the fibrous membrane, keeps the earth particles from migrating into the pipe.
The pipes have a 30 centimeters (12′) diameter and are 3 meters (10′) long. The interior volume can receive up to 220 liters (58 gal US) of wastewater. All Advanced Enviro-Septic pipes are clearly identified with the brand name.
Couplings are used to link the pipes together. Special adaptors link up the piping for both water and air supply. No special tools are required to perform the installation.
