- Sequence Batch Reactor System (SBR)



Wastewater treatment plant the SBR System is a small sewage treatment plant that effectively cleans wastewater from households or business facilities. The Eco Pipelife solution brings all the benefits of SBR water treatment to small and medium size users. Untreated sewage and waste water from houses and industrial buildings often drains directly into the environment. The resulting pollution consequences are numerous: not only does it represent a serious health hazard to human beings, the environment also suffers permanently from it. One of Eco Pipelife’s main goals is to help the environment as much as we can. This is why we’ve designed and produced a cleaning system which enables us to clean our sewage water before we return it to nature.

Usually the SBR (Sequencing Batch Reactor) systems are intended for larger municipalities or businesses, but at Pipelife, we have strived to bring the SBR solution to smaller and middle-sized users. Pipelife SBR system is essentially a small sewage treatment plant that can efficiently clean wastewater from households or businesses consisting of 4 to 16 persons.

The SBR system processes wastewater batches through a timed sequence of operations within a reactor tank(s). The system is very easy to use, since all aspects of the wastewater treatment sequence are controlled by the Pipelife control unit. This unit also informs the user about the state of the cleaning process.

Pipelife has developed a complete range of high quality, easily-installed SBR systems along with the necessary related equipment. Various system options address the various needs of different types and sizes of municipal and industrial applications in view of their specific effluent requirements.

Low operational costs, easy maintenance, adaptability and long life expectance make Pipelife SBR system a perfect solution for your sewage water.

The Sequence Batch Reactor (SBR) cleans the wastewater in one ore more batch reactors according to a predetermined sequence of operations. The system performs equalization, aeration and clarification in a single batch reactor.

Usually the Pipelife SBR system consists of at least two tanks. In this kind of configuration the first tank – the settlement tank – is used to retain the non-solvent particles. Because of their physical characteristics the non-solvent particles are discarded at the bottom of the settlement tank. The rest of the wastewater is conveyed to the second reactor by the pump on the reactor unit – the Swimmer Unit into the second tank – the SBR.

The wastewater treatment is essentially accomplished by the equipment mounted on the SBR’s swimmer unit. The unit floats on the water in the reactor. Due to its floating nature, the pumps and equipment that it hosts stay in optimal position at the top of the water level.

When the second tank – the SBR – is filled, the water treatment of the respective batch begins. The aerator mounted on the Swimming unit pumps air into the reactor tank. The air is necessary for the biological part of the cleaning process. Additional components can be pumped into the wastewater in order to remove chemical residues.

After the wastewater treatment cycle is finished, the cleaned water is pumped out of the system and safely discharged into the environment. Afterwards the SBR system is immediately ready to start the cleaning of the following batch.

To ensure that the cleaning process was successfully accomplished the control bottle takes a sample from the outgoing water. The whole batch treatment process is regulated by the Pipelife control unit. This unit also informs the user on the progress of the cleaning process.

Pipelife SBR’s program of wastewater treatment cycles can be easily modified and adapted to specific effluent requirements or regulations.


As the Pipelife SBR system has a relatively small footprint, it can be applied basically anywhere where mechanical treatment of small and medium wastewater flows is needed.

The Pipelife family of SBR systems can be used as a small sewage treatment plant in households, living units or businesses that consist of 4 to 16 residents. Since our system can successfully treat both municipal and industrial wastewater it can also be used in smaller and medium-sized business or industrial facilities.
