Upgrading an SBR Water Treatment System 

Sequencing Batch Reactors (SBRs) are a decades-old technology that may work well in theory but come with a variety of challenges in practice. Some of these challenges include:

  • Complicated Operation and Maintenance
  • Limited Expansion Capacity
  • Regular System Downtime Required for Filling, Settling, and Decanting
  • Changes in Organic Load Strength Can Affect Effluent Quality
