Sequencing Batch Reactor systems represent a variation of the activated sludge process. Like any other activated sludge process, the AquaSBR works by developing a mixed culture of bacteria which is effective in removing BOD, COD and nutrients commonly found in wastewaters.
The AquaSBR can treat a wide range of domestic and industrial wastewaters, at flows ranging fromm a few thousand gallons to millions of gallons per day.
The AquaSBR is unique in its ability to act as an equalization basin, aeration basin and clarifier within a single reactor. The termination of flow and aeration during the treatment process provides perfectly quiescent settling conditions in the reactor, and permits even very fine particles to settle. Each reactor maintains its own treatment regimen and all phases of treatment occur in each reactor.
The use of microprocessor controlled phases enables the operator to vary the operating strategy of the AquaSBR to suit treatment requirements. Normally, the process follows basic steps of Fill, React, Settle and Decant. The ability to create aerobic or anoxic conditions within the reactor results in flexible operation, better treatment of waste, and optimum effluent quality.
