Lackeby Rotating biological contactor is designed for treatment of waste water from municipal and industrial sewage works. The design is based on more than 30 years of experience from deliveries to plants worldwide. Lackeby Rotating biological contactor is as capable as other equipment for biological processes, but needs less space. A LCC-analysis also shows that it is a attractive solution compared to the systems.
The waste water is led to a vessel in which a biorotor rotates with a speed of 1-2 rpm. The slow rotation means small mechanical stress and minimized splashing and formation of aerosols. Approximately 40 % of the biorotor surface is under water. During the rotation the organic compounds are broken down by micro-organisms that grow on the active biomedia material. The structure of the biomedia material ensures extremely good flow without clogging. Required oxygen is absorbed by the micro organisms from the surrounding the air. The biological skin falls continuously due to the shearing force between the water and the biological skin. Loose biological skin is separated in a following sedimentation basin and then transfered to the sludge treatment. If the biological process is followed by chemical precipitation, no intermediate sedimentation is needed as return sludge pumping is not required.
Lackeby Rotating biological contactor is built around a circular, seemless steel tube with both ends mounted in spherical roller bearings. The RBC rotates by an Helical-Bevel gear unit with integrated motor, which gives a compact unit with energy efficient operation. A mounting system is installed around the shaft. The purpose of the mounting system is to fix the rotor’s active component; the biological media, that is placed in the segments around the shaft. The biological media is a material with
high specific surface.
