At Schreiber, our focus is simple: We improve wastewater. How we do it is pure ingenuity. With installations at more than 2,000 water treatment facilities worldwide, Schreiber has provided unique design (over 25 patents, from screw pumps to tertiary filtration), outstanding fit and finish, on-site expertise and responsive service since 1979. Technological innovations—such as the compressible Fuzzy Filter media system and the Continuously Sequencing Reactor (CSReactor)—have greatly improved cost effectiveness and energy efficiency in wastewater treatment and continue to identify Schreiber as a leader in the industry.

It has been said that the unseen and untreated can break down any system — this phrase could not be more accurate than in the world of wastewater treatment when considering the infiltration of grit into a system. Infiltration happens in the collection system, whether it’s from living on the coast, aging infrastructure or just plain old build up over time.
Over the last several years the wastewater reuse segment of the water industry has experienced both rapid growth and tremendous change. Global demand for increased water supplies fuels the development of alternative water sources, including reclaimed wastewater.
Municipal Potable Water applications for the Fuzzy Filter have grown the past few years thanks to a strong relationship established with a consulting engineering firm active in the industry. Read the full article to learn more about current installations of the Fuzzy Filter and how it can improve a plant’s overall efficiency.
As greater restrictions and increased capacities are being placed on industrial & municipal plants, filtration systems are being pushed to greater operating levels. The Fuzzy Filter has enjoyed a distinct advantage over conventional media and disc type filters by virtue of its ability to operate at over 5 times conventional flux rates while maintaining effluent quality better than these technologies.
Schreiber has designed and installed several dual GR plants in which one unit serves as the aeration/clarification unit and other unit serves as the digester/thickener/clarification unit. At the Mirasol, MO plant, the GR digester was sized to allow digestion/clarification in the initial phase, thus satisfying the clarifier duality required in many states, and will be converted to a digester/thickener in a future plant expansion.
Innovative and cost effective, Fuzzy Filter uses compressible media for variable porosity, with high solids storage and no filtered water needed for washing.
Schreiber’s grit and grease removal system removes both grit and grease in a common structure. Two parallel rectangular concrete channels combine to separate and collect grit and grease: one to settle grit particles for removal, and the other to collect grease using Schreiber’s patented air-skimming technology. The system meets the specific flow requirements of each facility and handles large fluctuations in flow. The typical detention time at the design peak flow is five minutes.
The Schreiber Continuously Sequencing Reactor, or CSR, is a Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) system contained in a single basin. It produces the three process phases required for BNR — oxic, anoxic and anaerobic — in one basin, performed sequentially and repetitively over time. Watch the video to learn more.
