Argos® Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR)

Aeration Industries®’ Argos® Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) offers greater process flexibility of the activated sludge wastewater treatment process matched with substantial capital equipment savings, ease of installation, and maintenance. Utilizing a uniquely engineered gear driven decanter and dual-function Aire-O2 Triton® process aerator and mixer, the Argos® Sequencing Batch Reactor is an ideal system for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment facilities looking for a user-friendly, energy-efficient solution.

The Aire-O2 Triton® process aerator/mixer provides all the aeration and mixing, eliminating all the expenses of diffusers and associated networks. As a result, the design is greatly simplified and costs dramatically reduced. The Triton units are float mounted and ride up and down on a guide rail system to accommodate the changing water levels in the SBR. The units are easy to install and are accessible for routine maintenance.

Benefits of the Argos® Sequencing Batch Reactor

  • Aire-O2 Triton aerator/mixer on guide rails maximizes accessibility and safety
  • Simple installation and maintenance
  • Eliminates need for diffuser grids, piping infrastructure, blower buildings, and independent mixers
  • Triton units can isolate aeration from mixing for bio-P and nitrification by cycling the blower for anaerobic, nitrification/denitrification cycles
  • Gear driven four sided stainless steel decanter with solids exclusion ensures high quality effluent
  • Flexible single or multi batch reactor design
  • Aire-O2 Triton® aerators provides all the aeration and mixing
  • Eliminates the need for separate mixers
  • Surface mounting allows for ease of inspection and maintenance
  • Tritons’ strong mixing allows for deep basin designs, reducing plant footprint
  • Decanter with solids exclusion weir insures a controlled high quality effluent
  • Tested and proven controls package
  • Eliminates final clarifiers and associated pumping
