SBR technology is utilized globally for wastewater treatment. The SBR process is a highly effective wastewater treatment system that offers a sewage treatment solution for all domestic types of wastewater. Biocell SBR technology is for applications from 5 to 5000 persons.  The SBR kits is designed specifically for installation in new or existing tanks.

SBR Technology Explained

SBR refers to sequential batch reactor. This technology is a controlled wastewater treatment process. Batches of wastewater are treated in sequence. This controlled process allows for each batch of wastewater to be treated for any required time frame. This enables any level of treatment to be achieved.

The typical steps in the SBR process are as follows;

SBR kits


  1. Filling phase – The sewage enters the first chamber, where any large solids are retained. The wastewater is then fed into the second chamber which is the biological reactor.
  2. Cleaning or aeration phase – The actual biological treatment by microorganisms now occurs in the reactor. Short aeration and rest [non-aeration] phases alternate in a controlled cleaning process. An activated sludge develops with millions of microorganisms which break down the wastewater completely.
  3. Sedimentation phase – A rest phase follows the aeration phase. The live or activated sludge sinks to the bottom of the water column. This allows a clarified water zone to form at the top of the reactor chamber.
  4. Clearwater removal phase – The purified wastewater at the top of the water column is now discharged from the system. The settled activated sludge is then transferred back into the first chamber and the process repeats with the next batch of wastewater.

SBR Kits for Tank Manufacturers

SBR kits represent an opportunity for any tank manufacturer or producer to start selling complete packaged sewage treatment plants without the need to spend the time and money developing their own systems. Our SBR kits can be combined with any shape of tank [round, rectangular, square]. They can also be installed in concrete tanks, GRP tanks or plastic tanks. Our kits are compatible with one chamber, two chamber or three chamber tanks. If you have a tank, we guarantee that we have equipment that is compatible with it.

All of our kits are already tested and certified to EN12566-3. If you already manufacture septic tank or water storage tanks, then contact us today and we can provide you with an equipment kit. SBR kits are installed in any tank in 20 minutes, upgrading a tank to a complete packaged wastewater treatment system.

Up to 15 SBR kits can be delivered on a single pallet, and kits can be designed to cater for domestic size tanks for 5-15 persons, or for larger commercial applications up to 3000PE.

SBR kits are suspend growth activated sludge systems, they do not require bulky equipment and plastic media which is difficult to transport and install in existing septic tanks. Depending on the size and shape of the existing septic tank, installation only involves dropping air diffusers in the tank [these are pre-weighted] and the installation of a simple airlift siphon into the tank that is manufactured from PVC pipe. These SBR airlift pumps can also be pre-weighted with concrete which allows for the complete kit installation to be carried out from ground level.

Installing an SBR kit into an existing tank is a very simple method of upgrading your septic tank. We supply SBR kits to specialist drainage and wastewater professionals internationally. By installing an SBR kit into an existing septic tank, you can improve the treatment efficiency from approximately 30% up to 99%.  This can offer a sustainable solution to a septic tank problem. SBR kit installation is a low cost septic tank upgrade solution requiring no major excavations to install new tanks.

We have supplied SBR kits to wastewater and underground drainage companies throughout the Middle East, Africa, America and Europe.

Advantages of SBR systems

The SBR treatment process is recognised as a highly flexible and reliable wastewater treatment process for a number of reasons. The advantages of the SBR process our kits utilise are as follows;

  • Low cost wastewater treatment equipment
  • Low energy wastewater treatment
  • High effluent standard achieved
  • Suitable for domestic and commercial sewage treatment [hotels, caravan parks, restaurants, bars, schools]
  • Suitable for light industrial wastewater treatment
  • Equipment is simple to transport and install in tanks
  • Suitable for above and below ground tanks
  • Suitable for installation in any type of tank
  • Excellent at dealing with shock loadings

Packaged Wastewater Treatment Systems

If you require a complete packaged wastewater treatment plant with SBR technology then we also have a complete range of packaged sewage solutions for new developments or for replacements of existing failing septic tanks. These include both domestic wastewater treatment plants and commercial wastewater treatment plants in concrete and plastic.

How to Get a Quote for SBR Kits

For tank manufacturers interested in obtaining a quotation for equipment to install in your tanks, all we require is the following information;

  1. Tank material [concrete, GRP, plastic]
  2. Volume of your tank
  3. Number of chambers in your tank
  4. Drawing of your tank

We can then prepare a complete technical proposal including drawings of single and multi tank systems. This will enable you to sell complete packaged sewage treatment plants to your customers. Our wastewater treatment kits achieve market leading treatment standards, with independently EN12566 tested performance of 6mg/l BOD, 17mg/l SS and 0.2mg/l NH4N/ammonia. The power consumption is as low as 0.1 kWh/day per person.
