Mabarex is a water-treatment leader serving clients across Canada since 1983. We design and build highly versatile turnkey treatment systems to handle clients evolving needs and protect their investments and resources. From preliminary study to plant operation, we provide comprehensive solutions for water, sludge and solid waste treatment, all guaranteed to meet your specific requirements.
The process is an activated sludge system that operates in time rather than in space, i.e. all steps take place, one after the other, in the same tank instead of moving from one tank to another. A typical Biocycle™ operation involves filling a tank with wastewater (with or without mixing under anoxic conditions), then aerating the wastewater to convert the organic into microbial mass.
After a specified time period (widely adjustable) all aerating and mixing devices are stopped to provide the best settling conditions. This period is then followed by discharging the clarified water (decant).
The tank is never completely emptied. Only the clarified water is discharged. The settled active biomass is left in the tank for the next cycle. Periodically, a fraction of the retained sludge is purged to keep the desired sludge.
