Presby Environmental Releases New Treatment Technology

May 12, 2016
"EnviroFin" can be installed into small spaces

Presby Environmental is releasing a new wastewater treatment product called EnviroFin to the market in May 2016. EnviroFin is a passive onsite wastewater treatment and dispersal system designed with the same principles as the company’s Advanced Enviro-Septic (AES) technology. EnviroFin is designed to ship easily (one 65-lb box) and will be installed into a smaller space than other wastewater treatment technology currently on the market. New Hampshire and Maine are the first states EnviroFin is approved in and is available for installation.

EnviroFin will be primarily used in residential and commercial applications. Due to the small size of the system, previously small unbuildable lots with many setback requirements will now have a solution. The product has no mechanical parts, does not need chemicals or have energy requirements and has no maintenance contracts. The product passed and exceeded the NSF 40 protocol at the Massachusetts Alternative Septic System Test Center (MASSTC) in Sandwich, Mass.

The effluent leaves the septic tank and enters an EnviroFin unit, which consists of a  center Fin Distribution Unit (FDU) and eight treatment fins filled with randomly oriented green plastic fibers and a perforated pipe acting as an air duct. The effluent fills the FDU until it enters the treatment fin through perforations around the FDU. The unit is buried in system sand, a C-33 concrete sand, and is installed with differential vents for air flow.

“It is a very exciting time for us,” said Lee Rashkin, vice president of PEI. “The EnviroFin will fill a void currently in the onsite wastewater industry by being a small passive wastewater treatment system that will be easier to ship.”
