AquaMB Process®

Multiple Barrier Membrane System

The AquaMB Process® is a multiple barrier system that integrates biological treatment and clarification with dual barrier filtration consisting of cloth media and external membrane separation. It is ideal for wastewater plants that require optimum performance and flexibility at the lowest cost of ownership. Compared to multiple unit processes and membrane bioreactor (MBRs), the AquaMB Process offers numerous advantages with the added benefit of single source responsibility. Phases of Operation >

Featured Story

Achieving Reuse Quality Water Using Multiple-Barrier Treatment

As clean water supplies become more limited, the demand for reuse water will continue to grow. Regardless of the treatment system used, the success of any reuse program relies on the biological treatment and the solid/liquid separation. The incorporation of nitrogen and phosphorus removal to the treatment
scheme broadens the opportunities where reclaimed water can be acceptable.
