Innovatreat > miniMBR®


The Innovatreat miniMBR® is an extremely efficient pre-engineered system excelling in decentralized nutrient removal and water reuse applications.

The miniMBR® utilizes externally mounted, vertically-oriented tubular ultra-filter membranes for biomass separation. Its one-of-a-kind, hydraulic pattern contributes to the highest energy efficiency of any MBR available on the market today.

Operating with industry-low airScrub™ (air scour) rates, we achieve the highest levels of nitrogen removal, necessitating the least amount of supplemental carbon. Besting increasingly strict limits.

The patented miniMBR® design provides remarkably efficient process turn-down (a challenge for competitors’ immersed MBR products). Utilizing automated backwash and a unique Membrane Laundry™ cleaning process, our patented system ensures maximum permeability, extended membrane life and ultra-quality treated effluent with minimal operator intervention.

The compact and highly integrated miniMBR® skid offers operational and maintenance ease unrivaled by typical membrane process equipment. For the average operator, any serviceable component in the miniMBR® (pumps, valves, blowers, instruments and even our membranes) can be replaced using common mechanic’s tools — an adjustable wrench, flat-blade screwdriver, etc.
How easy is that?
