- Process Description
Raw sewage water is introduced to the RBC system for secondary treatment.
Napier-Reid's BioRotor is an extremely efficient secondary biological wastewater
treatment system that is also well suited for advanced wastewater treatment.
It utilizes aerobic fixed film technology to reduce organic matter (BOD5),
total suspended solid (TSS), ammonia and phosphorous (P).
BioRotor system consists of hundreds of thin circular plastic disks,
collectively known as media, mounted on a horizontal shaft. Corrugated plastic is used to maintain high structural integrity while maximizing the biologically active surface area which promotes the growth of the many types of bacteria.
Around half of the module is submerged in a tank that contains the wastewater. Continuously driven by a gear motor, the media rotates slowly. Bacteria which are naturally present in human waste attach and multiply on the rotating media forming a thin layer of biomass.
The rotation carries the biomass and a thin layer of wastewater into the air facilitating the absorption of oxygen.
This aerated layer of bacteria is then re-submerged into the water where it metabolizes organic matter from the wastewater producing the required effluent quality.
The RBC design provides for optimum aeration eliminating the need for complex and expensive aerators.
As the film starts to grow, excess biomass is removed by shearing forces by the disks' rotation in a process called sloughing.
The rotating action of the disks also helps keep the solids in suspension.
Bio-Rotor's effluent proceeds to secondary clarifier for settling and filtration for the suspended solids and later to UV disinfection for micro-organisms reduction to meet the specified effluent quality standards. Alum is injected before secondary clarifier to assist in Phosphorus removal.
