SBR Process Cycle | Click to view enlarge image

The SBR is an activated sludge process that achieves treatment in a single reactor called tank. The reactor operates in batches in which the: fill, react, settle, decant, and idle stages takes place. The SBR is followed by a filter which removes solids. Typically, SBRs are comprised of at least two identically equipped reactors in parallel. This allows the process reactor to receive a consistent inflow of wastewater throughout all hours of the day
