Finding a cost-effective solution for septage and portable toilet waste is more difficult today than perhaps ever before. Fewer municipal treatment plants will accept septage, and regulation of land application continues to grow more stringent. This has left many septic waste pumpers in a bind. Do they pay to transport septage waste to an approved disposal site, which can sometimes be many miles away, or do they create their own septage dewatering operation?

Whichever option pumpers choose, Flo Trend has an economical solution to help reduce costs. The Debris Mate Container Filter with Swinging Bar Screen offers an easy, ideal method for dewatering waste from septic tanks, portable toilets, grease traps, alum, ferric, lagoon and digested sludge, and many other waste streams. It’s a simple design that’s highly adaptable to many different dewatering applications across multiple industries. The Debris Mate also features a closed-system build that provides odor control, zero spillage, reduced maintenance, and weather independence.

Using the Debris Mate is easy. Simply add your septic sludge to the container filter. The Debris Mate can process up to 40,000 gallons of sludge at a time, depending on the size you request. Once the material has been given adequate time to dewater, it will pass the paint filter test. The freed water can be returned to your water treatment system and the recovered solids can be hauled away or properly disposed of on site.

The roll-off mounted design of the Debris Mate makes transportation easy and cost-effective. Its swinging bar screen prevents clogs or jams from wipes or other, inorganic materials that make it into your waste stream.

The growing trend to cost-effectively dewater septage in order to minimize land application and to manage waste streams municipal plants no longer accept is becoming more feasible even for smaller pumping operations. Flo Trend’s Debris Mate Container Filter is designed to help septic haulers with all manner of dewatering and disposal applications.
