Clear Rex Bubbler
|This simple system trasforms an ordinary tank into a state of the art onsite wastewater treatment plant.The Bubbler is based on Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) technology. Through the use of smart aeration, this system is capable of consistently producing the best results currently available on the market.
The key to reliable wastewater treatment is not just blowing air, but blowing air at the right time. With this control, the SBR produces clear effluent and naturally reduces total nitrogen by 70%.

How The Bubbler Works
The following is a brief tutorial on the function of the Clear Rex Bubbler. For larger systems, the mechanical components change, the process remains the same.
Sanctuary Belize is a 14,000 acre natural preserve and ecological development located directly on the Caribbean Sea. When building a restaurant to serve the beachside pool, there were several challenges in dealing with the wastewater. First, there is the Caribbean Sea on one side and a bay on the other, both off which are used by residents for fishing and swimming. Second, there is a high water table that is never more than a few feet from the surface and often is just a few inches below the surface. Third, there are sometimes storm surges...
Wastewater treatment relies on healthy sludge for effective treatment. Using a sludge sampler allows you to see a profile of the sludge in the reactor, so you can see: How well it is settling. Size of flocs. Color of flocs. Depth of sludge layer. This information tells you the condition of the reactor. The red mark is 1 foot of depth, which is the ideal sludge level for most small systems. The sludge in the picture above is healthy. It has a rich, earthy color and good settling. The sludge level is a little low, which is fine in this case...
Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) is an advancement in wastewater treatment that allows several steps of the process to take place in a single chamber called a ‘reactor’. Since sequencing batch technology is demand-responsive, it resolves the problem of sludge bulking that happens in conventional extended aeration systems, which cause system failure, especially in small units. Advancements in computers coupled with the dropping price of the microchip have removed the need for a plant operator and made this technology...
The main benefits of Sequencing Batch Reactors (SBR) are: Demand Response Aeration – energy efficiency Smart Controls – for reliable treatment over time No Chemicals or Fixed Media – fewer problems Retrofitable – can repair failing systems SBRs were developed to address the very common problem of sludge bulking in extended aeration systems. Sludge bulking is a leading cause of failure in systems that do not have the capability to adjust aeration to meet demand. The SBR uses only air to create the proper environment for...
