Aerobic reactors

At Condorchem Envitech we design and install a variety of aerobic reactors for biological wastewater treatment. The selection of the most appropiate reactor depends on the characteristics of the effluent to be treated.

BIOCARB®

It is an exclusive model patented by Condorchem Envitech and is based on the development of a fixed-bed aerobic reactor whose filler material is granulated lignite coal. The coal filters, adsorbs and acts as a support for the biofilm, as well as feeding the microorganisms with minerals and trace elements. On the other hand, the adsorption process makes a double contribution to the process by rolling the peaks of pollutant load and by making the residence time of the pollutants in the interior of the reactor increase, such that it is possible to degrade persistent organic compounds. TheBioCarb® reactor has been shown to be especially effective in the treatment of pollutants that are difficult to biodegrade and with colour. Moreover, the immobilisation of the biomass on the surface of the lignite coal makes it possible to carry out in a single stage a biological and physical-chemical treatment of wastewater.

Sequential biological reactor (SBR)

This type of reactor operates discontinuously and all the processes occur in the same tank sequentially in time. It is a good option for those industries that produces small effluents but with high variability as regards their characteristics.
 
Membrane biological reactor (MBR)

This reactor is similar to the active sludge one with the difference that it has a module of ultrafiltration membranes in its interior. This module makes it possible to separate the sludge and the liquid using membranes, obtaining important advantages compares to traditional secondary decanters. It is an option for those cases in which there is little space.

Mobile bed biological reactor (MBBR)

This reactor is similar to the conventional active sludge one with the difference that it has a module of ultrafiltration membranes in its interior. This module makes it possible to separate the sludge and the liquid using membranes, obtaining important advantages compared to traditional secondary decanters. It is an option for those cases in which there is little space.
