The AquaSBR® sequencing batch reactor is a highly flexible and reliable wastewater treatment process. However, as with any treatment process, SBRs can experience wear and tear over time, leading to the need for upgrades or repairs.

Common Issues with Aging SBRs

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  • Outdated software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

These issues increase the risk of breakdowns, decreased efficiency, and higher maintenance costs.

In addition, as environmental regulations become more stringent, older SBRs may struggle to meet the effluent quality requirements. Upgrading your SBR process can be a cost-effective way to improve treatment performance and ensure compliance with regulations.
