Sanitaire ICEAS SBR Advantages

The Sanitaire ICEAS process offers unique advantages over the conventional SBR process, while eliminating costly systems and maintenance associated with conventional SBRs.


Equal flow and loading

since all basins receive flow at the same time, basin imbalance is minimized.


Smaller investment

less land area and less equipment is needed. 


Lower operating and construction costs

requires no primary or secondary clarifiers and associated pumping, pipework and control facilities.


Less sludge handling

return activated sludge is eliminated since aeration and settling occur in the same tank maintaining a healthy microbial population.



operators simply vary the operation as environmental conditions change with easy-to-use state-of-the-art PLC control system. Systems can be easily expanded by placing additional tanks in parallel.


Compared to true

batch SBRs, allows single basin operation for periods of low loading, startup or maintenance. Also eliminates costly influent and effluent control valves.


Peak flow handling capability

basin design and system hydraulics engineered to prevent mixed liquor washout during peak flows. Basin’s large surface area and superior decanter design facilitate a low overflow rate creating quiescent conditions favorable to particle settling and low effluent suspended solids.
