Siemens Creates Innovative Sequencing Batch Reactor System

25.01.2008
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.

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.

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
