Why Pure Aqua, Inc.?
Water Treatment Worldwide by Pure Aqua, Inc.
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.
Submerged Flat Sheet Membrane Technology
The MBR unit uses Toray flat sheet membranes immersed in the process tank in direct contact with the mixed liquor. Air injected from a manifold at the bottom of the membrane assembly helps to keep the membrane surfaces clean as well as supply oxygen for biological growth. MBR is equipped with a high level of automation, ensuring the plant’s simple operation and low maintenance cost.
Using membranes to separate sludge ensures higher quality treated water free from suspended solids. Membranes can retain activated sludge at high concentrations, resulting in more efficient BOD and nitrogen removal. The membrane has an immense number of minuscule pores delivering stable and high water permeability with minimal clogging and higher permeated water quality.
Modular MBR Advantages
The membranes are submerged directly within the bioreactor. It is typically operated in a considerably different range of parameters for the mean cell resident time and substrate utilization rate than conventional activated sludge processes. As a result, the Pure Aqua Modular MBR offers several benefits over the conventional activated sludge process.

Benefits of MBR Include:
The modular concept allows for phased construction of wastewater treatment plants and makes it adaptable to a wide range of sizes and flow rates. Pure Aqua units can be containerized, which has a number of advantages:
Pure Aqua, Inc. designs and manufactures water treatment systems in addition to Membrane BioReactor (MBR) Machines. In April 2011, Pure Aqua successfully supplied a Membrane BioReactor (MBR) machine to a major company in Saudi Arabia. The machine was designed to produce 10,000 GPD. The Membrane BioReactor (MBR) is a qualified sewage treatment machine using Pure Aqua's water treatment expertise with Toray's submerged membrane technology.
