Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) is a state-of-the-art process of purifying wastewater by using a specialized biological technology process. This treatment can be utilized for both municipal and industrial sectors for nitrification, BOD removal, and purification of water.
According to SBEF, a Taiwan leading MBBR wastewater solution provider, since the volumetric BOD loading of MBBR’s reaction tank is 1.7 to 5 times more than activated sludge process, it can significantly reduce the required volume of the biological treatment reaction tank.
“In the demands of low contaminants concentration and high water flow (ex: river water treatment, recirculating aquaculture system), MBBR is the most cost- effective and space- saving option among all the biological treatment processes,” says SBEF.
The MBBR systems are the best water treatment solution for the high-strength wastewater. The system of biological nitrogen removal (BNR) can enhance the methods of MBBR systems which increasing the treatment capacity and improving waste matter quality with no extra footprint growth.
However, SBEF further adds that, during the low organic loading operation, MBBR can achieve low sludge yield without having sludge bulking. The biofilm system is more resistant to the influent fluctuations and inhibitory substances in the water and thus it has a more stable outflow water quality. The system is easy to operate and control. It is friendly to operators by saving time and effort on sludge management. In the A/O process, the aerobic autotrophic nitrifying bacteria can be continuously attached to the MBBR carriers in the aerobic tank and their activity will not be affected by the aerobic/ anoxic environmental changes in the A/O cycle
The MBBR wastewater technology includes numbers of features such as suited cold and warm water with the climate conditions having +40 degree Celsius to -50 degree Celsius range, excellent sewage quality meeting all system. The capacities range is 1m3/day to 20,000 m3/day and provides low serving cost, indoor and outdoor installation designs, the operations it offers is odorless and whisper quiet, stainless brace manufacture, and much more.
To solve major water issue MBBR wastewater technology has been introduced and this technology used the combination of specialized bio and advanced aeration technology along with chemical-free disinfection and superior aeration. When biofilm increased in the water level, then the biological treatment must be affected and break down all the nutrients.
The increasing level of robust microbial which strength some bacteria and breaking down nutrients. Moving bacteria is not so easy from sewage, but by using modern technology the companies can quickly remove all unusable things from water and make it for daily use. Both municipal and industrial markets can use this MBBR wastewater treatment solution to get hygiene water.
According to SBEF, it takes only 4 to 30 working days to upgrade from the activated sludge process to the MBBR processing system, and the process is divided into three steps:
(i) Replace the aeration system of the aeration tank.
(ii) Add an effluent media retention sieve to the outlet of the aeration tank.
(iii) Put in MBBR carriers.
