Envirotect installs another Membrane Bioreactor

Fruit Juice Packaging Facility to improve Waste Water discharge.

After a successful Waste Water Treatment plant upgrade in 1998, production increases at this successful Aseptic Packaging Facility once again requires Envirotect’s wastewater expertise.

With a design flow of .120 MGD and a BOD of 30,000 ppm additional treatment is required while real estate for an upgrade at this facility is minimal. By utilizing a submerged flat plat membrane, Envirotect increased the capacity of the existing aeration system by 40% without using any additional tankage or real estate.

Typically an Membrane Bioreactor Waste Water Treatment Plant will consume less than 40% of the foot print required by a conventional Waste Water Treatment Plant. At this Byesville, Ohio operation a portion of the existing aeration tank was modified to house a membrane cassette (4’ by 4’ by 6’) that would treat the additional 40,000 gallong per day of capacity required. Because the Membrane Bio Reactor system will operate the MLSS in the extended aeration at 8,000 to 12,000 ppm - compared to a typical 3,000 ppm – the organic loading to the existing aeration tank could be more than doubled.

After the membrane was brought online the hydraulic load to the existing clarifier was reduced by 40% while the effluent from the membrane produces an effluent quality of < 2 ppm BOD and <2 ppm TSS.

Each system is integrated and controlled by PLC that provides for both alarm delivery and offsite control.
