KLARO Switch cabinets

With KLARO, the electrical components are not housed in the septic tank, but safely in a control cabinet outside. The control cabinet and septic tank are connected gas-tight via an empty pipe with air hoses. This means that the electrical components do not come into contact with the wastewater, dirt, aggressive gases, high humidity, etc. from the septic tank. In addition, the components are thus easily accessible for the operator and maintenance technician.

The control cabinets are manufactured at our site in Bayreuth. Only high-quality components are used, all electrical components are installed so that they are safe to touch, and the cabinets are delivered ready for connection. Prior to this, each cabinet undergoes a comprehensive function and safety check. Likewise, all technical data of your system are extensively documented, so that we can help you as quickly as possible at any time in case of questions.

For the different requirements of our customers there are several cabinet variants and equipment options to choose from. Basically, a distinction is made between indoor and outdoor installation; the size of the cabinet depends on the equipment - usually the compressor is the decisive factor.

The main components of the cabinets are:

  • Compressor
  • Valves
  • Control system

Included in the delivery are cabinet keys, easy-to-understand instructions for installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance. In addition, there is a wide range of additional equipment, such as metering pumps, cooling fans, warning lamps, remote monitoring, etc.

Indoor cabinet

These cabinets are designed either for hanging on the wall or placing on the floor indoors. This can also be garage, carport, garden shed, or similar. The installation site should be as well ventilated, cool and dust-free as possible. In addition, a stable power supply is necessary. The distance to the septic tank should be as short as possible - hose length preferably not more than 20 m.
 

ADVANTAGES

  • Convenient visual inspection possible without leaving the house
  • Not exposed to the weather
  • Easy to install
  • Most cost effective solution

Outdoor cabinets

These cabinets are designed for outdoor installation and are accordingly protected against the weather; even frost is not a problem. The distance to the septic tank should be as short as possible - hose length not more than 20 m if possible. The installation site should be as cool and shaded as possible. The smaller cabinets made of plastic do not require a foundation; a simple excavation at the empty pipe end is sufficient to bury the cabinet base. The larger metal cabinets require a foundation with access for the conduit. For the power supply, an underground cable is required that can be clamped in the cabinet.
 

ADVANTAGES

  • Can be installed directly next to the septic tank
  • Easily accessible - especially for maintenance by qualified personnel
  • Minimal installation effort
  • Lockable

M-technology

M technology stands for "machine technology". In this variant, the assemblies are housed individually in a technical room on site, without an enclosing control cabinet. The assemblies are largely pre-assembled for easy installation. All necessary assembly material is included in the scope of delivery.

The KLARO M-technology is only used for larger plants above 50 PE

ADVANTAGES

  • Cost-effective
  • Individual arrangement
  • Small, compact assemblies
  • Components easily accessible for maintenance

KLARO compressor

The compressor is one of the most important components of the wastewater treatment plant. It supplies the air necessary for the microbial decomposition of the dirt load, for the circulation of the activated sludge and for the pumping operations with our air jacks. Quality plays a decisive role here.


KLARO valves

The valves in the control cabinet are used to distribute the blowing air of the compressor to the air jacks or the aerators.  KLARO has developed special air distributors with stepper motor technology for this purpose and has been using them for over 5 years. The valves are controlled and monitored by the 24V control system.  Depending on the requirements, there are double, triple or quadruple distributors in different sizes.

ADVANTAGES

  • Practically noiseless
  • Minimal power consumption
  • Large passage - minimal pressure drop
  • Practically maintenance free

Accessories for switch cabinets

  • Cooling fan

    For cooling the switch cabinet.
    Included as standard with rotary vane compressors, can be ordered as an option with reciprocating compressors.

  • Warning lamp

    Additional LED alarm light with or without buzzer function

  • Dosing technology

    Peristaltic metering pumps for addition of various chemicals with increased cleaning performance requirements.

  • Chemical tank

    Special tank for outdoor cabinet EPP

    • Capacity: 35L
    • Material: HDPE

  • KLARO WebMonitor®

    An Internet portal for remote monitoring of equipment.

  • LAN-Adapter KL12

    Adapter for connecting the control system to the Internet via the router provided on site. For remote monitoring with WebMonitor.

  • Modem KM12

    Modem for remote data transmission via mobile radio for remote monitoring with WebMonitor or direct transmission of fault messages via SMS.

  • Base granulate

    Protects the outdoor column and the outdoor cabinet Universal from soil moisture penetration.
