The AquaSBR® sequencing batch reactor is a highly adaptable and dependable wastewater treatment process. However, like any treatment process, SBRs can deteriorate over time, necessitating upgrades or repairs.

Common Issues with Aging SBRs

  • Obsolete equipment and software
  • Limited availability of replacement parts
  • Decreased performance due to wear and tear on components

These challenges can lead to breakdowns, reduced efficiency, and increased maintenance expenses.

Furthermore, as environmental regulations tighten, older SBRs may struggle to meet effluent quality standards. Upgrading your SBR process can offer a cost-effective solution to enhance treatment performance and ensure regulatory compliance.

SBR Items often Repaired or Replaced

  • Coarse bubble to fine bubble diffusers
  • Diffuser racks and sleeves
  • Winches (manual to electric)
  • Air hoses
  • Galvanized to stainless steel components
  • Influent valves, actuators, air valves, decanter valves
  • Decanters, mixers, aerators, pumps, blowers
  • Control panel upgrades, PLCs, VFDs, OITs
  • Software upgrades
  • Level control systems (float switches to transducers)
  • Dissolved oxygen probes
  • Networking/communication improvements
  • Process control adjustments for improved treatment
  • Increased automation to reduce operator involvement
  • SCADA system for remote monitoring

Sequencing Batch Reactor Upgrades

Regular assessment of SBR conditions is crucial for wastewater treatment plant operators. Planning necessary upgrades or repairs ensures ongoing reliability and effectiveness while preventing costly breakdowns and maintaining regulatory compliance.
