When to use pure oxygen for biological treatment?

MABR operating on pure oxygen (OxyPURE) can offer some of the most compelling capital advantages for wastewaters with high nutrient loads.

Pure Oxygen MABR

Treating high nutrient loads with the power of Oxygen. The OxyPURE module has a high rate treatment capacity of 15kg of Ammonia or 60kg of COD per day.

OxyMem MABR can deliver on average 12g O2 per m² of surface area when operating on air. However for the first time, it could now make sense to use air with a higher oxygen concentration because OxyMem does not waste the process gas. Using enriched air (>90% oxygen) the OxyPURE module can deliver up to four times the rate of oxygen, in fact up to 50g O2 per m², providing you with much more treatment capacity for a lower capital cost. 


Oxygen based transfers get four times the treatment capacity

OxyPURE MABR leverages the power of pure oxygen without the waste experienced with legacy systems like jet aerators or diffusers. This MABR packs a very big punch and offers a staggeringly low capital cost due to the reduced surface area required to perform the treatment process.




When should you use pure oxygen?

If you are biologically treating he wastewater from Landfill (High Ammonia), Dairy (High COD), Brewery (High COD), or Biogas facilities (High Ammonia Digestate), then you can learn how we can help you by using OxyPURE.

Using enriched air (>90% oxygen) the OxyPURE module can deliver four times the capacity of oxygen than a standard air based system; and could save considerable TOTEX (total expenditure) over the life of your plant.

From an operational perspective the OxyPURE will have a higher operating cost than an air based MABR system, but due the the very high oxygen transfers that can be achieved (90%+), the OxyPURE should take up only  fraction of the footprint and still beats the Conventional Activated Sludge process for OPEX, hands down!
