Scarab® - Sewage Treatment Package Plants

The SCARAB® team designs and installs sewage treatment systems and package plants. The brand was first marketed in mid 2001, and a major investment and research program was initiated, resulting, finally, in the first prototype. This new design was installed in mid 2002.

The system proved to be very effective and reliable and is still operational to this day. See references here

Green & Unique

Scarab® is the only known package plant system that has achieved compliance (general standards) within seven working days. Water quality is clear (see blog) and odourless, and great for garden irrigation, dust suppression, water features and reflushing toilets. These irrigated areas remain green the whole year through. Our system will add environmental value to your property.  Recycle your water and benefit.

Easy to Maintain

The Scarab system requires no shut down to service and repair aeration equipment. There are no moving / servicable parts in the bioreactors. Due to the highly effective aeration system, the bottom of the tank is constantly 'swept'.  From this point, desludging is an easy task. Many other systems will choke up, and often would need to be replaced - giving a service life of less than 5 years. Provided the system is shielded from the sun, a our system could last 25+ years.
Who you choose to supply you a rugged, reliable, tested and endorsed, multiple award winning, internationally recognised, passionately crafted, eco-friendly sewage system, is your choice.

Simply Compliant

Even though the Scarab® sewage system requires no post-treatment clarifier, it still achieves compliance. This is achieved by using the aeration design to sweep the bottom of the tank, so that heavy sludge / sediment will be swept from the centre - outwards - thus allowing the sludge to be decanted via the drain valve.  Noting we initiated and perfected it in the earliest design way back in 2001. In many cases, other systems will choke up and fail, requiring a cleanup / replacement. Scarab® Package Plants are self cleaning.  You wont need to shut down for any maintenance work or servicing, and will remain compliant.
