Our sewage treatment package plants

The SCARAB team designs and installs their brand of package plant throughout South Africa, which was first marketed in mid 2001. A major investment and research program was initiated, resulting, finally, in the first prototype. This new design was installed in mid 2002.

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

It's important to remember that the water coming out of your tap is yours, so why not recycle it and reap the benefits.

Easy to Maintain

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

Simply Compliant

Even though the Scarab sewage treatment plant requires no post-treatment clarifier, it still achieves compliance. This is achieved by using the unique aeration design to sweep the bottom of the tank, ensuring the the air and the water is thoroughly mixed. Oxygen levels are always at the maximum levels, which keeps the bacteria healthy.  In many cases, other systems will choke up and fail, requiring a cleanup / replacement, and downtime. Scarab's Package Plants are self cleaning.  You wont need to shut down for any maintenance work or servicing, and will remain compliant.
Whilst others claim they are working hard to get their "poop product" right, we had already achieved this, way back in 2001. And with our first prototype.
