Business Case - Aqua Tex™ SBR (Sequence Batch Reactor) has been successfully used to treat municipal, marine and industrial wastewaters. The Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) is an activated sludge process designed to operate under non-steady state conditions. It is uniquely suited for treatment applications characterized by high organics content and low or intermittent flow conditions.

Applications - Aqua Tex™ SBR is ideal for cleaning wastewaters from these industries:

  • Municipal treatment plants
  • Marine vessels
  • Petro-chemical and refineries
  • Metal finishing & plating
  • Painting & finishing
  • Food & beverage and
  • Hazardous spills.

Technology - AquaTex™ SBR is a fill-and-draw activated sludge system for wastewater treatment. Wastewater is added to a single batch reactor, treated to remove undesirable content, and then discharged. Equalization, aeration, and clarification can be achieved using a single batch reactor. To optimize the performance of the system, two or more batch reactors are used in a predetermined sequence of operations. AquaTex"! SBR performs equalization, biological treatment, and secondary clarification in a single tank using a timed control sequence. It can also be designed to allow flow water to be channeled for additional advanced treatment prior to recycling or beneficial reuse.

Benefits - Benefits derived from an AquaTex™ SBR are numerous:

  • Dependable advanced treatment plant
  • Low operations and maintenance costs
  • Flexible treatment system compared to conventional sludge reduction
  • Designed to operate intermittently or with low flow rates
  • Eliminates regulatory fines for disposal of untreated wastewater and
  • Reduces environmental degradation by untreated wastewater.

Automated Controls - Every automated system that WRI manufactures comes equipped with a state-of-the-art control panel with the latest Allen Bradley PLC technology that offers user-friendly color touch screen programming, computer monitoring, and full reach-back capabilities to the corporate office. Whether wastewater streams are from gas wells, manufacturing plants, or cruise ships, WRI leads the industry in system automation technologies. At its manufacturing facility in Scottsdale, the Systems Automation Group builds control panels, installs wiring and electronic components, writes custom software, and prepares operating and training manuals for its clients.
