AdvanTex® Wastewater and Greywater Treatment Systems

Orenco designs and manufactures advanced wastewater treatment products for all decentralized wastewater applications, from single homes to whole communities. Currently, more than 30,000 AdvanTex textile filter units are treating residential, commercial, and municipal wastewater, all over the world.

Our patented AdvanTex Treatment System is a compact and efficient recirculating packed-bed filter. Packed-bed filters have proven to be a highly reliable, energy-efficient, and low-maintenance technology. However, unlike other packed-bed filters — ones that use sand, peat, foam, or other materials for the treatment media — AdvanTex uses a lightweight, compact, and easy-to-maintain textile fabric.

AdvanTex Treatment Systems were honored by the Water Environment Federation with a 2011 “Innovative Technology Award” and by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities with a 2011 “Sustainable Community Award.” Because they are such an environmentally sound product, AdvanTex Treatment Systems help developers earn LEED credits. And the Energy Trust of Oregon provides rebates for AdvanTex Treatment Systems because they are so energy-efficient.

AdvanTex Treatment Systems are also very easy to live with. They’re quiet and emit minimal odors. Plus, our residential and commercial-sized units have a very low profile, so they blend right into the landscaping.

AdvanTex® AX20 Treatment Systems

Orenco’s AdvanTex® Treatment Systems are the ideal solution for environmentally sustainable treatment of residential wastewater flows. Orenco’s AdvanTex AX20 units are a dependable, proven technology for treating residential septic tank effluent to better-than-secondary standards, including nitrogen-reduction. AX20 treatment pods are sturdy, watertight fiberglass basins filled with lightweight, highly absorbent, engineered textile media that treats a tremendous amount of wastewater in a small space.

Applications

AX20 Treatment Systems are primarily intended for residential applications that require advanced secondary treatment, including new installations, retrofits, or repairs. They’re also used in small commercial applications. AX20 units are ideal for sites with poor soils and small sites, especially those that require a compact “filter on top of tank” configuration.

Flows

A single AdvanTex AX20 pod treats wastewater flows of up to 500 gpd (1890 L/day). AdvanTex Treatment Systems are modular, however, and can be installed in multi-pod arrays to handle higher flows.

AdvanTex® AX-RT Treatment Systems

Orenco’s AdvanTex® AX-RT Treatment Systems are a dependable, proven technology for treating residential septic tank effluent to better-than-secondary standards, including nitrogen-reduction. AX-RT treatment units consist of sturdy, watertight fiberglass basins that incorporate recirculation-blend tankage and discharge tankage into a single module, along with lightweight, highly absorbent, engineered textile media that treats a tremendous amount of wastewater in a small space. One model — the AX15-RT3 — also incorporates primary tankage.

Applications

AX-RT Treatment Systems are intended for small-flow applications that require advanced secondary treatment, including new installations, retrofits, or repairs. They eliminate the need for separate recirculation and discharge tanks by performing both functions within a single module and are ideal for sites with shallow-bury requirements, sites with poor soils, or sites with small lot sizes. The AX15-RT3 also eliminates the need for primary tankage.

Flows

AX-RT units treat wastewater flows of up to 500 gpd (1890 L/day) for the AX20-RT or 625 gpd (2365 L/day) for the AX25-RT. However, AdvanTex Treatment Systems are also modular. With proper flow-splitting, they can be installed in multi-unit arrays to handle higher flows.

AdvanTex® AX100 Treatment Systems

Orenco’s AdvanTex® AX100 Treatment Systems are a dependable, proven technology for treatment of primary-treated effluent to better-than-secondary standards, including nitrogen-reduction. AX100 treatment units consist of sturdy, watertight fiberglass basins filled with a lightweight, highly absorbent, engineered textile media that treats a tremendous amount of wastewater in a small space.

Applications

AX100 Treatment Systems are intended for large residential applications or commercial and municipal applications that require advanced secondary treatment. They’re also an excellent choice for decentralized settings, including new installations, retrofits, or repairs. AX100s are ideal for subdivisions, “fringe” development, hotels, resorts, schools, churches, businesses, manufactured home parks, RV parks, campgrounds, rest areas, and truck stops.

Flows

A single AdvanTex AX100 pod can treat flows of up to 5000 gpd (18,927 L/day). AdvanTex Treatment Systems are modular, however, and can be installed in multi-pod arrays to handle higher flows.

AdvanTex® AX-Max™ Treatment Systems

Orenco’s AdvanTex® AX-Max™ Treatment Systems are a dependable, proven technology for primary-treated effluent to better-than-secondary standards, including nitrogen-reduction. They consist of sturdy, watertight fiberglass tanks that incorporate recirculation-blend and discharge tankage in a single module. Each complete, pre-manufactured unit also includes pumping systems, ventilation, and a lightweight, highly absorbent, engineered textile media that treats a tremendous amount of wastewater in a small space.

Applications

AX-Max Treatment Systems are intended for large-flow sites such as commercial and community applications that require advanced secondary treatment. They eliminate the need for separate recirculation and discharge tanks by performing both functions within a single module. AX-Max units are ideal for subdivisions, “fringe” development, hotels, resorts, schools, churches, businesses, manufactured home parks, RV parks, campgrounds, rest areas, and truck stops.

Flows

Depending on model, a single AdvanTex AX-Max unit can treat flows of 5000-15,000 gpd (18.9-56.8 m3/day). AdvanTex Treatment Systems are modular, however, and can be installed in multi-unit arrays to handle higher flows.

AdvanTex® AX-Mobile™ Treatment Systems

Orenco’s AdvanTex® AX-Mobile™ Treatment Systems are a portable, proven technology for primary-treated effluent to better-than-secondary standards, including nitrogen-reduction. They consist of a sturdy, fully-plumbed and prewired, watertight fiberglass tank incorporating recirculation-blend and discharge tankage into a single module. Units include pumping systems, ventilation, and a lightweight, highly absorbent, engineered textile media that treats a tremendous amount of wastewater in a small space.

Applications

AX-Mobile Treatment Systems are intended for remote or temporary wastewater treatment applications requiring advanced secondary treatment, including work camps, forward operating bases, disaster relief and temporary flow diversions. They eliminate the need for separate recirculation and discharge tanks by performing both functions within a single unit. Multiple units can be arranged to accommodate larger flows, and units incorporating primary treatment tankage are available.

Flows

Depending on the model chosen, a single AdvanTex AX-Mobile unit can treat flows of 5000-15,000 gpd (18.9-56.8 m3/ day).

AdvanTex® Greywater Treatment Systems

Orenco offers a variety of AdvanTex® Greywater Treatment Systems suitable for a wide range of flows. For example, the AdvanTex AX10-RTUV is designed for commercial and residential small-flow applications. Each AX10-RTUV is a single, complete, self-contained module that treats greywater to reuse standards before pump or gravity discharge. Units feature the same dependable, efficient AdvanTex textile media used in our wastewater treatment systems.

After AdvanTex treatment, greywater flows by gravity through the contact chamber and around a UV lamp, where it is disinfected. The UV unit uses no chemicals and has no moving parts. In side-by-side NSF® testing, the Orenco UV unit meets or exceeds the performance of other residential UV disinfection systems.

AdvanTex Greywater Treatment Systems are also quiet, low-odor, and low-profile ... so they can blend right into the landscaping. Larger greywater systems are available on a custom-order basis.
