How it Works
The BioBarrier® MBR and BioBarrier®-N were the first systems certified for water reuse (NSF/ANSI Std 350, class R) for total blackwater and greywater recycling. BioBarrier® MBR system is designed specifically for the unique needs and characteristics of the onsite and decentralized wastewater industry making it the most advanced system on the market. The BioBarrier®-N adds an additional anoxic zone to achieve higher Nitrogen Reduction for environmentally-sensitive areas:
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
The BioBarrier® MBR combines the advantages of activated sludge treatment with ultrafiltration flat sheet membranes with a pore size of 0.03 μm – eliminating the need for secondary clarification tanks (in most cases). The result is a system with a smaller footprint. With the solids-liquid separation process inside the tank, the system produces a clear, highly purified effluent that is suitable for water reuse, direct discharge into the receiving environment, a reduction in drain field size (please check with local regulations), or further treatment by other technologies to achieve Net Zero Water goals.
Finding the Right Size
BioBarrier® MBR systems are engineered for residential strength wastewater in three specific sizes based on daily wastewater flow. It is recommended to check what local regulations are required in case additional information is needed. Typically each bedroom is assigned a value for the number of GPD of wastewater and usually determined at the local regulatory level.
