Sequencing batch reactor (SBR) is a system which works with activated sludge principle and where aeration and sedimentation processes are occurred in the same tank as distinct from continuous systems. Wastewater is fed to reactor tank, purified and discharged. SBR systems consist of 5 steps; 1-filling, 2- aeration, 3-sedimentation, 4-discharge,
5- discharge of excessive sludge (if needed). SBR systems function as a
balance tank and comply with fluctuating pollution load and quantity of rawwater. It occupies less area than classic continuous systems.
If necessary, duration and application frequency of 5 steps mentioned above can easily be set for removal of nitrogen and phosphorus. This system does not require a secondary settling sedimentation tank, which classic systems require, since sedimentation is carried out in the same tank. Therefore, it
is economic. A reactor can be produced not only as modular type but also from reinforced concrete and so it can be applied in all required capacities.
• A SBR unit includes;
2. basket filter,
4. chlorine dosage pump,
5. submersible wastewater lift pump,
6. submersible discharge pump and air diffusers.
• Reactor body is made from epoxy coated ST-37 carbon steel
substance and it can be in a prismatic or cylindrical shape.
Production can be made for special applications and the used
substance or geometry of reactor can be variable.
• Control system is controlled by smart relay in standard ones;
however, control systems with PLC- touch operator panel can
also be made optionally. Special price should be demanded for
remote control- SCADA.
