Developed as the result of an existing installation’s performance, the newly branded ISBR system combines the company’s state-of-the-art OMNIFLO SBR system with its Cannibal solids reduction system.
Siemens Water Technologies’ innovative OMNIFLO interchange sequencing batch reactor (ISBR) system provides the most energy-efficient and the lowest sludge yield of any SBR on the market today.
The OMNIFLO ISBR system has an inherent biological nutrient removal (BNR) capability through the use of automated controls that provide optimum environments for each BNR reaction. It also produces a very high-quality effluent at varying flows and loadings. The small footprint OMNIFLO ISBR system produces a very low sludge yield of 0.05 to 0.25 pounds of biological solids per pound of BOD per day and, compared to a typical SBR system, provides increased flexibility as well as significant power savings.
Siemens’ ISBR system is ideally suited for plants that have high solids handling costs, high energy costs and tight effluent requirements. Installing just an SBR system helps plants meet state nutrient removal limits. But adding on a Cannibal system can also reduce high energy costs associated with aerating an aerobic digester, reduce the need for installing sludge handling equipment, and generally provide a more energy-efficient solution. Significant reductions in the amount of solids generated for disposal are also ultimately realized.
The ISBR system has allowed the wastewater treatment facility at a California casino to minimize solids wasting to less than 0.1 pounds of biological solids per pound of BOD treated. The facility has also used less than 10% of the power for solids treatment than was planned with the proposed aerobic digester. A single integrated control system from Siemens Water Technologies optimizes overall plant performance and serves as a single point-of-contact for the process. It also balances ISBR system operating conditions to help maintain effluent quality and minimize solids production.
OMNIFLO and Cannibal are registered trademarks of Siemens and/or its affiliates in some countries. With the business activities of Siemens VAI Metal Technologies, Linz/Austria, Siemens Water Technologies, Warrendale/Pennsylvania/USA and Industry Technologies, Erlangen/Germany, the Siemens Industry Solutions Division (IS) is one of the world's leading solution and service providers for industrial and infrastructure facilities. Using its own products, systems and process technologies, IS develops and builds plants for end customers, commissions them and provides support during their entire life cycle.Siemens AG

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
