SBR technology for aerobic treatment of beverage production waste water
On behalf of a beverage bottler for beer and soft drinks, CUSS built a waste water treatment plant on a Caribbean island in 2011. The mixed waste water discharged from the production facility was to be completely cleaned as part ofthe waste water treatment so that it could then be returned to the receiving waters with confidence. When designing industrial treatment plants, one particular challenge is often on how to cope with the fluctuating input of varying substances - this was also the case here.
Flexible waste water treatment methods have proven particularly suitable for such a tough task.
The biological treatment stage forms the core of the treatment plant. The SBR technology (sequencing batch reactor) is often used for this kind of task. This technology is also able to clean complex, highly polluted production waste water cost-effectively and reliably.
For tasks of this kind, CUSS has developed processing concepts that take into consideration the project-specific conditions that ensure the reliable operation of the plant also in cases of extremely high peak flows. These processes have been used in many cases and been optimised for a variety of conditions.
- Low reactor volume required
- High process reliability
- Simple and low-maintenance treatment technology
- Low investment and operating costs
- Variable process sequence possible if required
