Membrane Bioreactors Increase Effluent Quality at Hotel and Casino

 

Written by Surya Pidaparti

 

The Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians operates a hotel and casino in Chumash, California. The sewage from the facilities used to be treated by a conventional sequencing batch reactor (SBR) and sand filtration. As the hotel and its vicinity expanded, the existing SBR was not able to treat the increased flow, which was the major driving force for upgrading the facility. As the area is a high drought zone, a requirement of any permit for expanding the hotel would require water reuse.

Two options were selected to evaluate for the wastewater treatment expansion project – an expansion of the existing SBR alongside the existing and abandoning the SBR in favor of a Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) system. An extensive engineering evaluation showed that the MBR system had a total construction cost of $3.3 million versus a cost of $5.3 million for the SBR.

Econity MBR’s were selected, as offered by Schwing Bioset, for not only their performance, but their flexibility in design. With a cartridge and cassette configuration, maintaining the membranes becomes a simple exercise. The MBR system was built using two containers to minimize disruptions to current plant operations and to fit in the limited site space available. The facility was commissioned in January of 2016.

With the improvements, there has been a significant increase in the facility’s capacity all while showing that that the effluent quality, measured in turbidity (0.05 – 0.2 NTU) vastly exceeds California Title 22 requirements for reuse water (< 1NTU).

Schwing Bioset is Exhibiting at WEFTEC 2017

 

Schwing Bioset, Inc. (SBI) is looking forward to exhibiting at the 2017 WEFTEC Event in Chicago on October 2-4. 

Please be sure to stop by our booth (#2007) while you're on the exhibit floor. We will be displaying a dewatering screw press, as well as two new pieces of equipment.

Our new Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) filtration systems for water and wastewater utilize hollow fiber membranes. The unique end-free cartridge design provides an economical alternative to traditional longer fibers.

We are also debuting our new SBI Solutions system. This pre-packaged system is configurable to produce either Class A or B Biosolids in a convenient, pre-engineered skid mounted unit. The system is a compact, modular unit including a piston pump combined with the Bioset process, and optional screw press dewatering capabilities for an all-in-one package.
