SBR Sewage Treatment Systems

Biocell Water supply SBR equipment kits for installation or retrofit in new or existing wastewater treatment tanks or septic tanks. The SBR process is a highly effective wastewater treatment system. It is ideal for upgrading a septic tank or to complete a packaged sewage treatment plant. Biocell SBR [sequencing batch reactor] technology is suitable for applications from 5 to 5000 persons including light industrial wastewater treatment.

SBR Kits for Tank Manufacturers

If you manufacture septic tanks or water storage tanks we can provide you with an immediate opportunity to sell complete packaged sewage treatment plants of your own. With the installation of our SBR equipment you can transform any type of tank into a highly effective sewage system for immediate resale. Our SBR kits can be combined with any shape of tank [round, rectangular, square]. You can also install them 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. Installing one of our SBR kits takes just 20 minutes, upgrading any tank to a complete packaged wastewater treatment system. We can deliver up to 15 SBR kits on a single pallet. We can also design kits to cater for domestic size tanks for 5-15 persons, or for larger commercial applications up to 3000PE.

SBR Equipment for Retrofit and Septic Tank Upgrades

Installing an SBR kit into an existing tank is a very simple method of upgrading your septic tank.  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 many septic tank problems. Retrofitting an SBR kit provides a low cost solution to a septic tank upgrade without any major excavations.

Installation depends on the size and shape of the existing septic tank. It involves dropping weighted air diffusers into the tank before an airlift siphon that is made from PVC pipe. If necessary, the SBR airlift pumps can be also be weighted with concrete thereby allowing the installation to be carried out from ground level. If you have any questions about the process of upgrading a septic tank, get in touch.

Advantages of SBR systems

The SBR treatment process is a highly flexible and reliable wastewater treatment process for a number of reasons;

  • 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

Tank Manufacturers 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

Once we have this information 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.

SBR Process Technology

SBR refers to sequential batch reactor. This technology is a controlled wastewater treatment process. Batches of wastewater undergo treatment in sequence. This control process allows each batch of wastewater to undergo treatment for any required time frame. This enables the achievement of any level of treatment as a result.

In brief, the typical steps in the SBR process are as follows;


  1. Filling phase; where the sewage enters the first chamber and any large solids are retained. The wastewater then feeds into the second chamber which is the biological reactor.
  2. Cleaning/Aeration phase; where actual biological treatment by microorganisms starts to occur in the reactor. Short aeration and rest [non-aeration] phases alternate in an under control cleaning process. An activated sludge develops with millions of microorganisms which break down the wastewater completely.
  3. Sedimentation phase; where a rest phase follows. 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; where purified wastewater at the top of the water column now discharges from the system. The settled activated sludge transfers back into the first chamber and the process repeats with the next batch of wastewater.

Packaged Wastewater Treatment Systems

We offer complete packaged plants with SBR technology for all wastewater application types. If upgrading an existing septic tank is not an option we have plenty of alternative solutions for domestic wastewater treatment. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you require any of our services for your wastewater treatment requirements.

  1. DJ Reid

    Top quality kits.

  2. P.B Tanks

    Great additional option for our customers and very good feedback so far.

  3. Rob Foley

    Got the cesspit sorted with one of these, great price and neat job done by the lads at Biocell.

  4. Michelle O Donohue

    Our septic tank was giving us trouble and the staff at Biocell were really helpful in recommending and installing one of these SBR kits. We didn’t need to get rid of our old septic tank at all, we were able to upgrade it and now it works perfect and the cost was very reasonable. Definitely would recommend.
