How it Works
To assure consistent effluent quality, the BioBarrier® MarineMBR™ (land-based version was the first system certified for water reuse (NSF/ANSI Std 350, class R) for total blackwater and greywater recycling onboard a vessel adheres to strict water quality guidelines. Each system operates automatically and is controlled by a three level float switch and timing relays in the control cabinet:
BOD less than 5 mg/L
• TSS less than 2 mg/L
• Turbidity less than 0.2 NTU
• Fecal coliform less than 200 CFU/100 mL (without disinfection)
How it Installs
BioBarrier® MBR systems are engineered for residential strength wastewater and dependent on daily wastewater flow. The Scienco/FAST custom steel tank provides access for maintenance and removal of the membranes and filtrate pumps plus maintenance of the blowers while keeping as much of the equipment below deck and out of sight. All penetrations for air lines, filtrate outflow and electric cables are installed below the main deck. A submersible pump is mounted on the membrane module housing and used as the filtrate pump.
