How it Works
The BioBarrier® HSMBR® (High Strength Membrane BioReactor) System utilizes industry leading immersed membrane technology for the treatment of winery wastewater. The resulting highly treated effluent can be used for vineyard irrigation, landscape area, water features/fountains, dust control, and a variety of other water reuse applications to help conserve natural resources, protect ground/surface water, and overcome land constraints.
How it Installs
The BioBarrier® System, is a membrane bioreactor providing primary settling, fecal coliform, BOD, TSS, and nitrogen reduction (if needed) using aeration and anoxic zones, and membrane filtration. The system is contained in locally supplied tanks, either in a two or three compartment tank, or multiple tanks, with the membrane module always in the last compartment/tank of the system. The membrane module itself consists of flat sheet membranes arranged in a cartridge. A high mixed liquor suspended solids concentration in the aeration zone provides biological treatment and nitrification. The final effluent or permeate is pulled out by the permeate pump through the MBR membranes leaving behind large organic and inorganic particles for further digestion or wasting.
Finding the Right Size
It is recommended to check what local regulations are required in case additional information is needed.
