Aqua MSBR®

Modified Sequencing Batch Reactor

The Aqua MSBR® modified sequencing batch reactor combines the advantages of sequencing batch reactor technology with a traditional flow-through activated sludge process to produce a low cost, compact and continuous flow system. Phases of Operation

Features

    Constant water level

     

    Continuous flow

     

    Simple operation

     

    Adept at processing high-peak hydraulic flows due to storm events

     

    Quiescent settling prior to clarification phase

     

    Optimized, enhanced biological nutrient removal

Advantages

    No need for separate structures

     

    Unique flow through system

     

    Basin configuration optimized

     

    Existing aeration equipment can be used

     

    Superior performance even in low-strength, low-temperature wastewaters common in North America and Europe

     

    Fully automated control system

     

    Better sludge flocculation; no sludge collection mechanisms

     

    Low TSS discharge; effective nitrification, denitrification and phosphorus removal

Applications

    Any municipal or industrial wastewater system with effluent requirements ranging from carbonaceous oxidation to enhanced biological nutrient removal

     

    Ideal for large scale projects >15,000 m3/day

     

    New plant construction

     

    Retrofit existing activated sludge systems

     

    Plant upgrades

Kunming Puzhao WWTP in China Operates Completely Underground, Below a Public Park

The Kunming Puzhao Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) located in Kunming, Yunnan Province, China is unique because it was built completely underground, due to limited land space available to accommodate such a large capacity plant. The facility operates below a public park that is surrounded by residential buildings.  Read More
