BIOSHAFT - MAAD & T-MBBR Modular Wastewater Treatment Technology
About Bioshaft Water Technology
BioShaft Water Technology Inc. designs and manufactures wastewater treatment systems that provide a host of solutions to pressing capacity, footprint and sludge management challenges at municipalities, private developments, resorts and camps alike.
The company’s patented and proprietary biological treatment technologies also address tough wastewater treatment applications at slaughterhouses and food & beverage processing plants.
The compact nature of these systems and their utilization of efficient wastewater treatment mechanisms result in significant reductions in the capital and operating costs for both new wastewater treatment plants and upgrades to existing plants.
BioShaft’s wastewater treatment technologies achieve high BOD, COD, TSS and nutrient reductions that meet local discharge regulations. The treated water can be safely used for irrigation, landscaping or as process water for certain industrial applications.
The company has been successfully providing innovative solutions to public and private clients in the United States and overseas since 2009.
As of April 30, 2016, it has over 30 domestic waste water plants in use around the world that use the BioShaft technology, which is made using BioShaft unit.
BioShaft unit works by emulating and accelerating a natural process found in rivers. The waste water treatment plant system for which the Company uses its BioShaft unit is called the BioShaft System. Its BioShaft System consists of over four treatment phases with BioShaft unit used in the second treatment phase.
The four treatment phases are Mechanical/Primary Treatment Phases (Pretreatment phase), Biological/Secondary Treatment Phase, Tertiary Treatment Phase and Sludge Treatment. Its turbo moving bed bio reactor (T-MBBR) BioShaft Packaged system is mobile and delivered ready for immediate installation.
The patented Turbo Moving Bed Bio Reactor (T-MBBR) technology by BioShaft is a proven biological wastewater treatment technology that utilizes near 100% attached growth biofilm in a low attrition environment with no stagnant zones or any chance of biofilm sloughing.
The well-developed and constantly replenished biofilm rapidly breakdowns and consumes organics in the wastewater stream. The integrated T-MBBR System has a high tolerance to process upsets and high nutrient reduction capability.
Compared to conventional aeration-clarification systems, the T-MBBR technology cuts the wastewater retention time by more than half, therefore treating the same daily volume of wastewater in less than half the footprint required by a conventional wastewater treatment system.
Conventional systems also produce large amounts of watery sludge that contain slow settling suspended solids. The majority of the solids generated by the T-MBBR system are fast-settling biologically exhausted colonies of bacteria and microorganisms that are captured quickly by the downstream clarifiers. The volume of the sludge generated by the T-MBBR system is around 80% less than the sludge volume produced by conventional systems. The resulting savings in sludge dewatering, transportation and disposal costs lead to more than 30% reduction in ongoing operating costs compared to the operating costs of conventional treatment systems.
Compared to other advanced biological wastewater treatment technologies like RBC, MBR and traditional MBBR systems, the T-MBBR system has a lower initial capital cost, requires no coagulating chemicals, does not need any cleaning chemicals and associated downtime and does not require any major replacement costs every few years
The simple and elegant T-MBBR system is easy to operate and does not require any special operator training. It is by far the most superior yet easy to operate biological wastewater treatment system available for municipalities, industries and remote location today.
The proprietary Modular Anoxic Aerobic Digester (MAAD) process by BioShaft integrates an anaerobic digestion tank with the T-MBBR System. The raw pre-screened wastewater undergoes partial treatment through the anaerobic tank before it’s treated through the T-MBBR System. Depending on the application, most or all of the sludge effluent from the system’s secondary clarifiers is sent to the anaerobic tank for complete digestion.
The MAAD process is particularly suited for industrial wastewaters with moderate amounts of fat and proteins which increase the organic loading and cause scum formation in the aeration tanks and settling problems in the secondary clarifiers. The MAAD System is also particularly suited for wastewaters with variable composition and occasional spikes in the concentrations of certain compounds. Examples are wastewaters from food processing plants, dairies and slaughter houses.
When used in municipal wastewater treatment applications, the MAAD process reduces sludge generation by more than 95% compared to the conventional biological wastewater treatment systems. A municipal MAAD system does not produce daily volumes of sludge. Instead, all of the sludge from the secondary clarifiers in sent to the anaerobic tank to be digested. Only inert solids begin to accumulate inside the anaerobic tank. These solids are cleaned out once every few months. The anaerobic digestion step reduces aeration therefore power consumption requirements.
