Biological Treatment Systems / Integrated Biological Reactor (IBR)® The New Generation in Wastewater Treatment

A CLEAR LINE product by Ecologix: Clear, Simple Solutions

Integrated Bio-Reactor (IBR)
The award winning Integrated Bio-Reactor (IBR) Aerobic Industrial / Municipal Wastewater Treatment System is the latest product in the advanced line of CLEAR solutions by Ecologix Environmental Systems.

The Integrated Bio-Reactor (IBR) is well adapted for the treatment of wastewater with highly concentrated organic loads such as industrial biodegradable effluents and less contaminated effluents, typically found in applications involving municipal wastewater treatment. The operation of the wastewater treatment system is very simple and reliable due to the innovative design of our patented technology. The Integrated Bio-Reactor (IBR)was designed with minimal maintenance in mind: The system's only moving mechanical part is the centrifugal pump, which drives the effluent through the ejector. No additional maintenance is required!

From Municipal wastewater treatment to an impressive expanse of Industrial applications, this revolutionary technology demands less energy, produces less sludge and saves more money in both installation and maintenance costs than any other product like it. We invite you to experience the New Generation in Wastewater Treatment ...introducing the Integrated Biological Reactor (IBR)®.

KEY COMPONENTS

The IBR can be fabricated in several standard configuration:
Aeration may be delivered with diffusers, bottom jets or top jets. The Clarifier may be configured with straight walls and a mechanical scrapper or with a cone.

The above drawings are for the IBR model with a top jet configuration. The Jet-Clear comprised of the following components: a) a tank (1) that represents the bioreactor shell, b) a centrifugal pump responsible by the circulation of the liquid (effluent), c) an ejector assembled at the top of the bioreactor that is responsible for the aspiration of atmospheric air, d) a de-gasifier to remove the excess air in the effluent, and e&f) two pipes: one inside the tank that transports the mixture of air/liquid inside to the bottom of the tank, and another that establishes the contact between the ejector and the centrifugal pump.

• This wastewater treatment system's patented ejectors create the maximum sudden chock pressure and stress on the passing activated sludge (MLVSS).
• The age of the cells inside the bioreactor is increased to its maximum levels by total recirculation of the MLSS to the bioreactor from the filtration devices at the output of the process.
• The loop design created between the ejector and the bioreactor prevents any MLSS sedimentation build-up at the bottom of the bioreactor.
The IBR ejectors are placed outside and above the treated wastewater.

SIGNIFICANT SLUDGE REDUCTION
g MLSS/100g BOD5

Example: Municipal wastewater treatment plant for a 1M inhabitant city:
- High rate sludge production: 55g BOD5x1Mx0.55=30.250 Tons/day.
- Extended aeration: = 24.750 Tons/day.
- The Integrated Biological System®: = 4.950 Tons/day.
Sludge reduction per year: (30.250-4.950)x365= 9,234.5 Tons/year

COMPARATIVE ENERGY CONSUMPTION

 

Example: Municipal wastewater treatment plant for a 1M inhabitant city:
High Rate AEROBIC TREATMENT energy required: 5,958 kWh.
Extended Aeration: = 4,812 kWh.
The Integrated Biological Reactor®: = 1,895 kWh.
Energy reduction per year: (5,958-3,437 )x24x365= 35,591 MW/year

 

HOW IT WORKS

• The influent equalization transfer pumps feed a complete mix aerated biological reactor for treatment. The wastewater is aerated using atmospheric air; this air is aspirated to the liquid by passing it through a special Venturi device, this results in a simple, alternative aerobic process.
• The air ejectors discharge through a draft tube on the bottom of the bioreactor at this point the air is released flowing upward.
• All the aeration necessary is provided without any mechanical moving parts. A centrifugal pump per ejector is used to maintain a constant recirculation rate of the industrial wastewater through the ejectors and sufficient to cause the aspiration of atmospheric air. The mixed liquor in the bioreactor is continuously circulated in a loop between the top of the bioreactor and a de-gasification tank, the de-gasification tank feeds the centrifugal pump that drives the mixed liquor through the ejectors.
• The Integrated Biological Reactor® has a vertical installation that results in a small foot print. The vertical installation also increases the oxygen transfer rate to the wastewater.
• The operation of the wastewater treatment system consists basically of one centrifugal pump per air ejector that pumps the mixed liquor through the ejector. The assembling of the specially advanced and unique designed ejector(s) into the position above the liquid and the use of bioreactor(s) with a minimum of 7.5m deep, including a draft tube for discharge in the bottom of the bioreactor(s), allow for a total length of passage of the air through the liquid of no less than 15 m.
• The result of this retention time of air in the effluent, together with the perfect mixing of the extremely small micro bubbles of air with the liquid, creates the most effective and highest diffusion coefficient of oxygen in the water to date.

APPLICATIONS

The Integrated Biological Reactor® can be installed for any community size: from small villages to large cities; it only depends on the size of the bioreactor(s) and the number of ejectors to be installed and operated.

The Integrated Biological Reactor, while applicable to multiple applications, is best suited for:
   Food Processing
   Dairy & Poultry
   Municipal Applications
   Industrial Applications
