The Aqua-Aerobic® MBR process specifically utilizes a unique time-managed, sequential aeration process to promote biological nutrient removal within a simplified unit process. The integration of PURON® submerged membranes, manufactured by Koch Membrane Systems, Inc., provides direct filtration of high-level MLSS.
In comparison to conventional membrane bioreactor (MBR) technologies, the Aqua-Aerobic® MBR process offers advantages by addressing equalization, nitrification and denitrification within a single reactor while minimizing power costs through reduced energy needed for mixing, pumping and aeration.
The Aqua-Aerobic® MBR process is ideal for both municipal and industrial markets and is best suited for end users who require exceptionally high quality treated water for water reuse.
