Aqua-Aerobic® MBR

Membrane Bioreactors


The Aqua-Aerobic® MBR system is a unique, time-managed process which uses sequential aeration to promote biological nutrient removal in a simplified unit process. The integration of submerged membranes provides direct filtration of high-level mixed liquor suspended solids (MLSS).




How It Works



Features & Specifications

  • Time-managed control offers operational flexibility with fewer tanks
  • Integrated equalization of batch system minimizes membrane area
  • Membrane fibers with integral air scour and no top header minimize sludging
  • Controlled recycle from membrane tanks limits oxygen during anoxic phase

Benefits

  • Minimal pre-screening requirements
  • Proven enhanced nutrient removal (ENR)
  • Separate nitrate recycle pumps are not needed
  • Patented Aqua MixAir® system adjusts dissolved oxygen to match organic loading
  • Membrane treatment of known batch volume optimizes flux and minimizes air usage
  • Lowest energy consumption among MBRs
  • Rapid solution for augmenting plant capacity
