Operating Problems

Many RBC operating problems are caused by shaft failures, disk breakage, bearing failures, and organic over-loadings. By adopting proper design, operation, and maintenance practices, wastewater treatment facilities can mitigate many of these problems. For example, many RBC systems are enclosed to eliminate disk exposure to UV light, reduce temperature effects, and protect the equipment. These facilities can control odor problems by reducing organic loading or increasing the oxygen supply using supplemental air diffusers in the basin.
