Brac Systems CGW-5000
The CGW-5000, with a liquid capacity of 4300 Litres (1140 US Gal.), is a compact to mid-sized commercial system designed for applications for up to 120 persons, such as apartments, hotels/ motels and office buildings.
For instance, an application for a CGW-5000 would be a 40-room apartment building with an average of 120-person occupancy, each contributing 50 Litres (13.2 US Gal.) of greywater daily. This would be sufficient enough water volume to take care of the entire buildings daily toilet flushing requirements.
25 rooms X 75 people X 50 L/ shower = 3750 L (989 US Gal.) per day
Note: One person’s daily shower volume approximately equals the daily toilet flush volume requirements.
*This is only an example! Because there are many variables associated with the design of these systems, the exact sizing will need to be determined by a BRAC consultant.
Features of the Brac System
The BRAC CGW Commercial Systems are a complete all-in-one greywater recycling system which includes an in-ground holding tank, in-ground primary and secondary filter housings, a managed chlorination system with a dedicated pump, a variable frequency, 5hp constant pressure greywater pumping system, primary and secondary filter alarms, and water counters for both fresh water and greywater to show water consumption and savings.
The indoor uses would include capturing the greywater from the bathtubs, showers and laundry and reusing it to flush toilets. There are a variety of uses for any surplus greywater produced from inside the building, including use in sub-surface irrigation systems.
Some examples for outdoor uses would be to route rainwater into the CGW’s main holding tank and reuse it for irrigation purposes, or installed at commercial carwashes to recycle the large volumes of water that have typically been wasted.
