Wastewater Reuse Systems image

Wastewater Reuse Systems - AdvanTex®

Orenco's AdvanTex® Treatment Systems consistently produce clear effluent that's suitable for a variety of reuse applications (governed by local regulations).

Treating the entire waste stream is the most efficient approach to reuse. AdvanTex® Treatment Systems use natural processes to meet strict permit limits.

If you need a greywater system, AdvanTex® products can help recycle water from showers, sinks, and laundry facilities (subject to local regulations).

Orenco® Stormwater Catch Basins provide a durable, cost-effective alternative to a concrete or steel basin.

Residential Wastewater Systems image

Residential Wastewater Systems

Gravity Septic Solutions
On many sites, gravity can convey filtered wastewater to a drainfield, with no need for pumping.

Pumping Systems
On other sites, a pumping system conveys filtered effluent, either to a drainfield or to additional components in the system.

Advanced Treatment Systems
On difficult or environmentally sensitive sites, an advanced or secondary wastewater treatment system treats the effluent to very high levels.

AdvanTex Wastewater and Greywater Treatment Systems image

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.

Orenco also 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. All AdvanTex Greywater units feature the same dependable, efficient AdvanTex textile media used in our wastewater treatment systems.

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.
