May 11, 2010 -- An expanding international application base for ITT's Sequencing Batch Reactors (SBRs) incorporating AUMA actuator technology is reported. Latest installations include wastewater treatment works in Oman, Qatar and Ireland.
The Intermittent Cycle Extended Aeration System (ICEAS) SBR has been promoted by ITT as an effective and economic solution to municipal wastewater treatment since the early 1990s. The technology, designed to allow influent wastewater to continually flow into a reactor, is now adopted in over 1,000 sites around the globe.
Having become established as an effective option to conventional activated sludge systems at wastewater treatment works, ITT advises that the 'fill-and-draw' method of treating and removing undesirable components from wastewater has become widely adopted.
AUMA actuation technology incorporated in the decant mechanism provides advanced data feedback. The products also support reliability and safety features, as advance warning is given regarding potential problems. Additionally, variable decanter movement is provided, which gives superior flow control for the SBR's fill-and-draw wastewater treatment activated sludge system. Web: www.auma.com
