The Membrane BioReactor (MBR) is a state of the art pre-engineered sewage treatment system utilizing Pure Aqua’s water treatment expertise with Toray’s submerged membrane technology. The membrane separation process eliminates the conventional sedimentation tank and allows high volumetric loading, resulting in a smaller footprint. The MBR can produce high quality effluent with high BOD5 removal (about 98%), complete nitrification and partial de-nitrification and achieves virtually complete TSS removal.
Membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology is composed of an exclusive wastewater treatment method created for many municipal and industrial applications with plant sizes that reach 48 million liters per day. Membrane bioreactor systems are designed to be used in applications such as water reuse, turnkey projects, new housing developments, retrofits, parks, and hotels. It comes between ultrafiltration or microfiltration with a suspended growth bioreactor. MBR claims two types of configurations: internal and submerged. Internal: membranes are immersed in and are an integral to the biological reactor. Submerged: membranes are a separate system method needing an intermediate pumping step.
