Membrane Bioreactor (MBR)
When the most stringent regulatory requirements are stipulated, tertiary treatment often includes membrane filtration, which is typically configured in two ways, integrated or separated.
The integrated membrane bioreactor (MBR) system places the biological system and membrane filtration module(s) in the same tank. It is a simple and compact configuration, and it is primarily used for small or containerized plants.
The separated MBR system uses separate tanks for the biological treatment, and the membrane filtration steps. This approach has the advantage that the individual processes (ie. BOD removal, nutrient removal, filtration) may be optimized independently without any negative influence from the other processes, enhancing operability, performance and stability.
ECOfluid’s MBR systems utilize California Title 22 approved submerged PVDF flat sheet membranes with a nominal pore size of 0.08 micron. They produce reuse quality effluent, and provide a reliable, compact, and cost effective tertiary treatment solution.
