Reduce SBR Maintenance Costs With Jet Aeration

Aeration has been a primary method for treating municipal and industrial wastewater for over a century. It is a natural way to reduce biological oxygen demand (BOD) and control odors. In the SBR process, aeration helps foster nitrification by bubbling air through the mixture of wastewater and activated sludge, encouraging the multiplication of aerobic microbes which consume nutrients and convert ammonia into nitrites and nitrates.
