  • A perfect pair: SBR designs & advanced aeration technology

    Conventional sequencing batch reactors (SBRs) that utilize diffused-air networks have existed in the U.S. for about three decades now. The reliability of controls and instrumentation has significantly improved in the last 10 to 15 years, and as a result, SBR plant designs are becoming more widely accepted. The attractiveness of their compact layout and ease of operation has also helped increase ...

  • Plant Profile - Warrenton Wastewater Treatment Plant Sequential Batch Reactor

    The Warrenton (Ore.) Wastewater Treatment Plant is brand new. In fact, it initiated full operation Jan. 2, although the plant has been utilized since June 28, 2006. The sequencing batch reactor (SBR) plant was constructed on top of an existing facultative sewer lagoon site. The site conditions prohibited deep excavations, so the three basins for the SBRs are shallow, at only 12.5 ft (3.8 m), with ...


  • OCF 5.0 open channel flow monitors - monitor infulent at Long Sault WWTP plant

    Greyline Open Channel Flow Monitors were installed at the Wastewater Treatment Plant in Long Sault, Ontario when the SBR plant was originally commissioned in 1995. But after 16 years of continuous service, components for the old models became obsolete. Plant operators Caneau Water and Sewage Inc. decided to replace the instruments and new Greyline OCF 5.0 Open Channel Flow Monitors were installed ...
