The process enhancement and low-cost retrofit capabilities of MBBR technologies enables our customers to either improve conventional processes or improve the performance of biological treatment systems to meet more demanding influent characteristics, or more stringent regulatory discharge requirements at reduced costs. Dramatic treatment performance improvements, economic alternatives to conventional upgrade options, and ongoing support form the basis of each of the performance enhancement and MBBR plant upgrade packages Headworks Bio offers new and existing customers.

MBBR Upgrades

Conventional biological wastewater systems can greatly benefit from measurable enhancements to the treatment process through an MBBR plant upgrade. By retrofitting a conventional system with sufficient aeration, retention screens, and biocarriers, wastewater treatment performance can be doubled in capacity. This is accomplished easily with minimal plant downtime and no construction. In space-constrained sites, a considerable benefit is the increased performance without additional land use.

MBBR Performance Enhancements

MBBR processes designed for today's wastewater flows can be easily expanded to meet tomorrow's increased flow or concentration levels. This is accomplished by simply adding more biofilm carriers to the process - supplementing the existing process with increased active surface area, yielding increased biodegradation capacity in the existing system with minimal process adjustments.

An MBBR plant upgrade or expansion can supersize your capacity within a small footprint!
