Abstract : This paper presents: (1) The design methodology used for the sizing and layout of the RBC units; (2) A comparison of the full-scale operational data collected since November, 1979 to the performance predicted by the design methodology; (3) The operational factors which affected the performance of the RBC units; and (4) The enhancements to the overall plant performance (e.g., nitrification and secondary clarification) which are attributed to the RBC process.
