The membrane bioreactor uses the MBR membrane for filtration, mainly for domestic sewage, food processing wastewater, slaughterhouse wastewater, and landfill leachate wastewater treatment. The treatment result of the MBR membrane bioreactor is excellent.

What is the MBR Membrane Bioreactor?

MBR membrane bioreactor is a new type of wastewater treatment process combining membrane separation technology and biological treatment technology. The MBR tank replaces the secondary sedimentation tank in the traditional treatment technology. It maintains a high activated sludge concentration to increase the organic load of biological treatment, reducing the wastewater treatment system’s footprint.

What are the Working Principles of MBR Membrane?

The working principle of the MBR membrane bioreactor is a treatment process combined with the traditional treatment process, which is a new treatment process. The treated water is pumped out after filtered through the MBR membrane by a suction pump. The MBR tank retains activated sludge and macromolecular organic matter, directly replacing the secondary sedimentation tanks.

What are the functions of the MBR Membrane Bioreactor?

  1. Currently, MBR membrane bioreactors play an essential role in the sewage treatment industry. In recent years, MBR technology has become more mature and can be used in urban and industrial wastewater. With the development of MBR membrane bioreactors, The MBR membrane bioreactor has become a cost-effective and practical technology widely used in water treatment.
  2. MBR is popular in urban sewage treatment because the occupied area of the city is tiny. The effluent of the MBR bioreactor can be reused or used as pretreatment for nanofiltration and reverse osmosis.
  3. The MBR membrane can also treat food processing wastewater, slaughterhouse wastewater, and waste leachate in industrial wastewater. Especially the endocrine disruptor chemicals(EDS) in waste leachate, MBR membrane bioreactor has a better removal effect. The removal rate of nitrate in drinking water can reach 98.5%.
  4. For different types of sewage, it is very important to choose the correct structure and material of the MBR membrane bioreactor. The new energy-saving and high-efficiency membrane materials should be considered.

The above is the information about the working principles of the MBR membrane. If you still have related questions about the membrane bioreactor, please feel free to contact SPERTA.

Can We Clean The MBR Membrane With Sodium Hypochlorite?

The cleaning frequency of the MBR membrane and the choice of the cleaning agent determine the final filtration effect of the membrane bioreactor. Some people think we can use sodium hypochlorite as the cleaning agent, but some people don’t think so.

How to Clean the MBR Membrane?

Once the MBR membrane is polluted, the membrane pores will be clogged, and the flux will drop. Therefore, we must clean the MBR membrane module to restore the membrane flux and extend its life span. The following is a detailed explanation of how to clean the MBR membrane.
