Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) Technology

MBR Technology Contain Superior effluent quality and lower life cycle cost than conventional activated sludge treatment. MBR Technology offer several operational and economic advantages compared to conventional wastewater treatment plants.

By incorporating GE’s membrane technology, MBR Technology eliminate the need for secondary classifier and tertiary treatment. This allows for increased performance with a smaller footprint. With over two decades of ZeeWeed  membrane bioreactor experience, GE delivers advanced MBR solutions for your needs.

Membrane bioreactors for wastewater treatment i.e combination of a suspended growth, biological treatment method “usually activated sludge” with membrane filtration equipment, typically low-pressure micro-filtration (MF) or ultra filtration (UF) membranes.

MBR Technology

The membranes used to perform the critical solid-liquid separation function. In activated sludge facilities, this is traditionally accomplished using secondary and tertiary classifiers along with tertiary filtration. The two general types of MBR systems are vacuum (or gravity-driven) and pressure-driven systems.

Vacuum or gravity systems immersed and normally employ hollow fiber or flat sheet membranes installed in either the bioreactors or a subsequent membrane tank. Pressure driven systems in-pipe cartridge systems located externally to the bioreactor.

An “MBR Technology” considered to a complete and integrated membrane unit (sub-systems) with related components necessary to allow the process to function as desired. An MBR system often composed of ten or eleven sub-systems and includes fine screening (headwords), the Membrane Zone and, in most cases, some type of post-disinfection process.

An MBR Technology, or Membrane Zone, can best be described as the initial step in a biological process where microbes used to degrade pollutants that filtered by a series of submerged membranes (or membrane elements).

The individual membranes housed in units known as modules, cassettes, or racks and a combined series of these modules i.e referred to as a working membrane unit. Air is introducing through integral diffuse-rs  to continually scour membrane surfaces during filtration, facilitate mixing and in some cases, to contribute oxygen to the biological process.

The benefits of MBR Technology include a reduced footprint, usually 30-50% smaller than an equivalent conventional active sludge facility with secondary classifiers and media tertiary filtration. The process also produces exceptional effluent quality capable of meeting the most stringent water. Quality requirements, a modular schematic that allows for ease of expansion and configuration flexibility, a robust and reliable operation and reduced downstream disinfection.


Why Only Wapp for MBR Technology ?

Wapp is the only industrial organization. Which focuses “specifically on membrane processes including reverse osmosis (RO), nano filtration (NF), micro filtration (MF), ultra filtration (UF), electro dialysis reversal desalination (EDR), and membrane bioreactors (MBR).
