Smith & Loveless Titan MBR Qube wastewater treatment system

Thursday, 10 January, 2013 | Supplied by: CST Wastewater Solutions

The latest Smith & Loveless MBR (membrane biological reactor) wastewater treatment system, the Titan MBR Qube, comes in a 12 m-high cube container, completely pre-assembled, packaged and delivered. The plug-and-play unit needs only a flat pad to sit on and connections to water and electricity.

The system provides users with high-quality treatment performance with minimal operational requirements for applications involving flows in the range of 25-100 m3 a day, depending on BOD (biochemical oxygen demand) and whether nitrogen removal is required. The product provides effluent quality of <3 mg/L BOD and <1 mg/L TSS. Turbidity is <2 NTU, TKN is <2 mg/L and NH3 is <1 mg/L.

The durable membrane is composed of PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) and non-woven polyester fabric. Vertical membrane surfaces do not touch each other during operation. Their smooth, continuous surfaces prevent the build-up of solids that result from hollow fibres being bundled by stringy solids such as hair.

The flat-plate membrane design results in less breaking and clogging than hollow-fibre types and can easily be cleaned in place with a simple chemical injection. The flat surfaces facilitate air scouring in the aeration zone, preventing fouling and the need for back-pulsing pumping equipment. The membranes maintain high permeability and flux rates even at peak rates and stack within a fully submerged module inside the aeration zone. They are designed to use less chemicals and equipment than other products.

The low-maintenance technology uses gravity pressure to drive water flow through its membranes. Clean water discharges into a clearwell while blocked solids remain suspended in the aeration zone. Diffusers beneath the module scour the membranes while also providing an air supply to the bacteria. The units incorporate all wiring, piping, valves, cleaning-in-place equipment, screening, air conditioning and remote view PLC operation.

The system is suitable for industrial and municipal applications where strong environmental performance is mandatory. The technology is custom-engineered for situations such as those encountered by mining, oil and gas, and remote infrastructure construction sites, which require ongoing protection of shared community water resources through a standalone system that doesn’t require complicated operating skills and knowledge.
