Magellan® Wastewater Treatment

A Ground-Breaking System Revolutionizing the Wastewater Treatment Industry

Magellan is a decentralized wastewater treatment plant. This lightweight system is designed with DuroMaxx steel reinforced polyethylene (SRPE) technology and all plastic internal components for on-site treatment of 2,000 to 250,000+ gallons of wastewater per day.

Magellan Wastewater Treatment

The Magellan Advantage

Magellan’s utilization of steel reinforced polyethylene (SRPE) technology and all-plastic internal components allows for a packaged design that provides fast “plug-and-play” installation, along with simple, low-cost operation and maintenance. In addition, Contech provides engineering, installation, commissioning, operator training and system certification services, making it a truly cost-effective solution. The Magellan system uses proven primary, secondary, and tertiary treatment processes to treat various wastewater influent levels. The system is offered in numerous configurations, including single vessel, multiple trai, and containerized. Magellan also qualifies for LEED credits and can be buried to provide improved aesthetics.

    Treatment System Configurations

    The Magellan system uses a proven process to treat wastewater influent levels from clustered residential, to light industrial, to small municipal flows, and includes the following:

    • Activated sludge/extended aeration (AS/EA)
    • Moving-bed biofilm reactor (MBBR)
    • Sequencing batch reactor (SBR)
    • Membrane bioreactor (MBR)
    • Variations of other typical conventional processes
    • Denitrification/nutrient removal
    • Tertiary treatment (membrane/UV filtration or chorine disinfection)
    • Reuse and reclamation systems

     

    Ease of Transportation & Installation

    • Magellan is lightweight, promoting easy on-site installation
    • Lightweight systems are more cost-effective to transport
    • No specialized installation equipment required

    Ease of Operation & Maintenance

    • SRPE plastic eliminates concerns related to tank maintenance
    • Simplified designs promote easier operation and lower operating costs
    • Life cycles are two and three times longer than comparable steel, concrete and fiberglass systems resulting in substantially lower life cycle costs
