More and more municipalities are looking to Membrane Bio-Reactors (MBR) to achieve project goals, a choice that can be well supported by the major benefits that MBR technology can provide such as exceptional effluent water quality (particularly for water reuse), smaller footprint, automation of operation, and many others.

This presentation highlights the design and procurement strategies applied to the Santa Paula MBR plant in considering different membrane shape types, both hollow fiber and flat plate, and how they were compared and evaluated to provide the most suitable design to accommodate the plant inflow conditions. It discusses the essential parameters for developing design concepts that have been incorporated and can be recommended for large MBR plants with varying peak flows and the ways in which the membranes were procured.
