The Sequencing Batch Reactor Technology (SBR-Technology) is a world-wide approved biological technology for the wastewater treatment based on the principle of gradual wastewater batching. The cleaning process takes place in one or more tanks of the wastewater treatment plant. The tank is filled with wastewater gradually during the day. The biological wastewater treatment process (so called activation) is carried out by means of microorganisms present in the wastewater. Oxygen needed for the life of the microorganisms is blown by an air pump in the wastewater. There are aerating elements (diffusers) installed at the bottom of the tank.
When the biological wastewater treatment process (so called activation) is completed, the aeration is turned off too. The sludge sedimentation process takes place in the tank of the wastewater treatment plant. When the sludge sedimentation process is completed, the cleared water is drawn off by a pump from the tank and the wastewater treatment plant is prepared to receive a new wastewater batch. The operation of the wastewater treatment plant is managed by an automatic electronic unit. The time schedule of the cleaning process can be altered as needed.
Advantages of the SBR-Technology:
capacity flexibility by irregular inflow
resistance against the variable volume and composition of the wastewater during the day
guaranteed output parameters also by low inflow
possibility to transport wastewater by a gully emptier
automatic operation of the wastewater treatment plant (only checks needed)
