Product description Brand name and product description

Sequential Batch Reactors (SBR) are wastewater treatment systems which employ suspended-growth processes. These processes are achieved through injecting oxygen to both maintain aerobic conditions and mix the wastewater, which activates sludge. Activated sludge systems remove organic matter, nutrients, biochemical oxygen demand, and chemical oxygen demand. However pathogen removal is low. The treated water can either be inject back into the groundwater table, or used for some agricultural purposes.
