ROTATING BIOLOGICAL CONTRACTORS  (RBC)

​RBCs fail in fatigue, without warning, resulting in at least a significant reduction in treatment capacity. Our Principal, Eric Findlay, when with Severn Trent Engineering, worked with Cranfield University, School of Engineering in the 1990s to develop a plant which was defect free for a minimum of 20 years. Those RBCs have more than achieved their 20-year requirement. When at Copa Ltd, the plant was warranted defect free for a minimum of 20 years and over 100 installed throughout the UK. We understand these are still operating satisfactorily.

We are able to advise on the Validation of RBCs to achieve the Severn Trent Water Limited / Cranfield Standard. This should ensure the problem of short life failure experienced in the 1990 's and in the USA is avoided.

RBC REMEDIATION

RBCs are investigated when they are thought to be are nearing the end of their useful life and recommendations made on the most cost effective solution. This minimises the effect of costly and inconvenient loss of treatment capacity allowing the operator to plan for, or avoid, the loss of treatment capacity. Our report covers all aspects including process, civil and mechanical engineering aspects and if required site layout.

It can, if required, consider the effect of future planned development on the process including duplication.
