The SBR Decanter design is based entirely on gravity and differential pressure. The decanter, which floats up and down on the changing water surface level with the help of pontoons, has evenly distributed decanting holes to create an even and low-velocity flow. The state-of-the-art design utilizes multiple orifices to keep velocities at a minimum and pulls treated effluent from just below the surface to minimize the possibility of entraining floatables.
Our patented solids excluding design effectively prevent suspended solids from entering the decanter during aeration and agitation without the use of conventional valves or pumps. The operation of the solids excluding ball mechanism is controlled by pressure changes in the decanter via a valve on the outside of the SBR basin. Decanted water then exits the basin through a flexible outlet pipe mounted in the basin wall.
The innovative SBR Decanter design represents a remarkable breakthrough in wastewater treatment technology. Anchored by the principles of gravity and differential pressure, this cutting-edge decanter operates in complete harmony with natural forces. Equipped with meticulously engineered pontoons, the SBR Decanter effortlessly adapts to fluctuating water levels, gallantly floating up and down as required. The distribution of precisely placed decanting holes ensures a uniform and gentle flow that leaves no room for turbulence or unwanted velocities. Its state-of-the-art configuration incorporates multiple orifices strategically positioned to maintain minimal speed, effectively minimizing any adverse effects on the treated effluent. By carefully extracting the purified liquid from just below the surface, unwelcome inclusion of floatables is decisively mitigated – an approach that underscores its dedication to optimal performance and excellence in wastewater management.
