Efficient wastewater treatment in Mexico

Thanks to the mixing and aeration technology from INVENT a state-of-the-art wastewater treatment plant is now able to transform wastewater from a vacation resort into valuable hydration for an evergreen golf paradise.

The plant, originally built in 2017, was designed for a wastewater volume of 1,080 cubic meters per day and operates based on SBR treatment technology. A “Sequencing Batch Reactor” requires the construction of basins for pre-treatment, for the periodically repeated multi-phase sewage sludge treatment (filling, aeration, mixing, emptying) and for the clear water that in the end is the result of the process.

The INVENT technology assist the process in three rectangular tanks. In the SBR tank (dimensions length 22 m x width 10 m x depth 5 m), two HYPERCLASSIC® -Mixers, each with a diameter of 2.5 m, along with an aeration system, ensure uniform mixing of the content. In a final step, the extracted water is discharged from the SBR basin via an iDEC®-Decanting System with a pipe diameter of 20 cm.

A HYPERCLASSIC®-Mixer featuring a diameter of 2 m is utilized in the 12 x 5 x 5 m equalization basin, and an iCBA®-Aeration System with 18 aerators is utilized in the sewage sludge basin of the same size, to prevent, among other things, foul odour emissions. With the water extracted from the wastewater treatment plant, the operators of a neighbouring golf course cover their needs for the green areas and the artificial lake in between.
