Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor

Transcend Cleantec is the best MBBR technology manufacturer and Supplier in Pune, India. Moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) is a biological technology used for wastewater treatment process suitable for urban and industrial application. Another common name is moving bed film reactor. It was invented in the 1980s. MBBR offer an economical solution for wastewater treatment. STP MBBR technology is the used in sewage treatment plants.

MBBR technology employees thousands of polyethylene biofilm carriers working in mixed motion within an aerated wastewater treatment basin. Each specific bio carrier expands manufacturing through supply a protected surface area to support the progress of heterotrophic and autotrophic microorganisms within its cells. It is this high-density population of bacteria that execute high-rate biodegradation within the system, while also offering process consistency and ease of operation.

MBBR wastewater treatment system allows efficient results of the disposal using low energy. This technology is used to separate organic substances, nitrification and DE nitrification. MBBR design is made of triggered sludge aeration system. The sludge is collected on the plastic carriers, which have a big internal surface area. The surface area in the carriers improves the contact of water, air, and the bacteria.

MBBR activated sludge is the application of MBBR media to an overloaded treatment plant when update.

MBBR is appropriate to the different quality of wastewater treatment. The application is determined by the desired results and regulations controlling discharge. The system can be of more than one stage turn on specific needs. The stages are made of individual tanks separated by screens to confirm that bacteria remain in their specific tank.

This technology provides cost-effective treatment with minimal maintenance since MBBR procedures self-maintain a best level of productive biofilm. Additionally, the biofilm attached to the mobile bio carriers within the system automatically responds to weight fluctuations.
