HighStrengthFAST® Wastewater Treatment Systems
HighStrengthFAST® wastewater treatment systems are ideally suited for use in commercial properties such as restaurants, schools, trailer parks, office buildings and other high-strength waste applications. Commercial facilities are among the most challenging projects, often having biological loading (BOD) and Fat, Oil, and Grease (FOG) levels that are significantly higher than standard sanitary-strength sewage. Certain applications have additional challenges that affect the wastewater treatment system due to the unique characteristics. Wastewater treatment projects should always be designed with these challenges in mind and never on flow volumes alone. HighStrengthFAST® wastewater treatment systems are proven, innovative treatment products that provide robust, high-performance treatment to meet the challenges of our changing world. Dependable, affordable…FAST®.
FAST® is simply great technology, based on environmentally sound and simple scientific principles. The FAST® (Fixed Activated Sludge Treatment) process employs a unique hybrid combination of attached and suspended growth in an aerobic, packed bed bioreactor. This proven IFAS (Integrated Fixed-Film Activated Sludge) combination includes the stability of fully-submerged, fixed-film media and the effectiveness of activated sludge treatment, making the innovative, patented FAST® system technologically advanced and extraordinarily reliable.
Nitrification and denitrification projects are much easier with FAST® technology. Multiple biological, bio-chemical, and physical processes occur simultaneously within the FAST® wastewater treatment system. FAST® wastewater treatment systems have proven themselves to consistently reduce nitrogen levels – including nitrates and all other nitrogen species – at exceptionally high percentage rates.

USA and International Product Certifications
The list below is a summary of a few certifications received for the products of Bio-Microbics:
- All Control Panels – CSA (Canadian Standards Association) Electrical Certification
CSA International and the International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI), the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI), Health Canada, provincial regulators, and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to promote standards for consumer safety in North America and around the world. CSA testing is accepted by key conformity assessment organizations in the U.S. including IAPMO and ASSE. Tested and meets applicable standards for safety and/or performance, including the applicable standards written or administered by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Underwriters Laboratories (UL), Canadian Standards Association (CSA), National Sanitation Foundation International (NSF), and others.
- All Control Panels – CE – European Electrical Systems (including a “Tropical Certification Rating”)
The European (EN) standards by adopting universal requirements to cover all of Europe and promote the free movement of goods within Europe. When products have been shown to meet the essential requirements of the directive or EN standard the product is available for sale anywhere in the European market.
- All Control Panels – ETL and RoHS Compliant – Intertek Testing Services
Evaluated and meets the standard equivalent to the requirements set by Intertek and equivalent to UL (Underwriter’s Laboratories). Periodic checks are performed to assure consistent compliance of the product and in compliance with both Canadian and U.S. requirements.
- FOGHog® Fat Oil & Grease Interceptor FH-20 & FH-50 – IAPMO Certified–
IAPMO (International Association of Plumbing & Mechanical Officials) developed a Uniform Plumbing Code and Uniform Mechanical Code that is adopted by plumbing and mechanical engineers who follow these standards of uniformity to promote professionalism within the industry. Using the ANSI-accredited organization method, which is based on consensus, these codes set the standard for engineers to perform plumbing and mechanical duties uniformly, according to IAPMO standards of certification. Several states are or have considered making Mechanical or Plumbing Inspector certification a requirement for current or prospective inspectors.
- All FAST® – Poland – Aprobata Techniczna (Technology Approval) ze Instytut Ochrony Srodowiska (Institute of Environmental Protection)
