Proven, Safe, Reliable

HighStrengthFAST® wastewater treatment systems are ideally suited for use in commercial properties such as restaurants, schools, trailer parks, office buildings and other high-strength waste applications. Commercial facilities are among the most challenging projects, often having biological loading (BOD) and Fat, Oil, and Grease (FOG) levels that are significantly higher than standard sanitary-strength sewage. Certain applications  have additional challenges that affect the wastewater treatment system due to the unique characteristics. Wastewater treatment projects should always be designed with these challenges in mind and never on flow volumes alone. HighStrengthFAST wastewater treatment systems are proven, innovative treatment products that provide robust, high-performance treatment to meet the challenges of our changing world. Dependable, affordable…FAST®.

The Real Beauty of this Remarkable System is How Well it Works.

FAST is simply great technology, based on environmentally sound and simple scientific principles. The FAST (Fixed Activated Sludge Treatment) process employs a unique hybrid combination of attached and suspended growth in an aerobic, packed bed bioreactor. This proven IFAS (Integrated Fixed-Film Activated Sludge) combination includes the stability of fully-submerged, fixed-film media and the effectiveness of activated sludge treatment, making the innovative, patented FAST system technologically advanced and extraordinarily reliable.

 

Nitrogen Reduction

Nitrification and denitrification projects are much easier with FAST technology. Multiple biological, bio-chemical, and physical processes occur simultaneously within the FAST wastewater treatment system. FAST wastewater treatment systems have proven themselves to consistently reduce nitrogen levels – including nitrates and all other nitrogen species – at exceptionally high percentage rates.
