Sequencing Batch Reactor

The AquaSBR® sequencing batch reactor provides true batch reactor technology with all phases of treatment accomplished in a single reactor. All components are easily accessible and the advanced decant system ensures optimum quality effluent withdrawal.


Optimize treatment of the AquaSBR system with the IntelliPro® Monitoring and Control System

• Monitoring, trending and data analysis
• Energy savings process control
• On-line troubleshooting assistance
• BioAlert™ process notification system


    Aqua MixAir® system provides flexible control of aeration and mixing


    Independent aeration and mixing provides lower energy consumption


    Time-managed operation offers process flexibility with greater handling of hydraulic fluctuations


    Floating decanter provides subsurface withdrawal of decant volume


    True-batch system allows React, Settle and Decant phases to occur within the same reactor


    No secondary clarifiers and return activated sludge (RAS) lines


    Lower construction, installation, operation and maintenance costs


    Low cost of ownership


    Municipal and industrial wastewaters


    Enhanced biological nutrient removal (EBNR)
    - Total nitrogen < 3 mg/l
    - Total phosphorus < 0.3 mg/l


    Water reuse and reclamation


    New plant construction


    Retrofit existing activated sludge systems


    Plant upgrades

Aqua-Aerobic Technologies Meet Small Footprint and Stringent Nitrogen and Phosphorus Requirements

The Buxahatchee Wastewater Treatment Plant in Calera, Alabama was built in 1960. It upgraded in 1985 to a 0.75 MGD capacity extended aeration system with integrated clarifier and traveling aeration bridge for nitrification. By 2004, the system could no longer handle the flow capacity brought on by community growth, nor the increased stringent nutrient limits set by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM). To resolve the plant’s issues an
upgrade was in order.
