PASSAVANT® Tube Diffuser BIOFLEX®

PASSAVANT® Tube Diffuser BIOFLEX®

A tube diffuser BIOFLEX® consists of a support tube with an inside thread and slotted sleeve membrane. Two hose clamps fasten the membrane onto the support tube and an O-seal is applied for sealing between the distribution pipe and the diffuser element. To avoid buoyancy the support tube is flooded. Tube diffusers are usually installed in pairs either by a pipe clamp fixed on a round tube serving as a distribution pipe or by a double nipple inserted into a rectangular tube. When air is supplied, it is directed through the head of the support tube under the membrane. Through the slots of the membrane the air is smoothly dispersed into the wastewater.

    Troubleshooting Nitrification And Denitrification In Wastewater

    The proper tools are essential to fixing any problem. Over the years, Ohio EPA’s Compliance Assistance Unit (CAU) has helped dozens of water resource recovery facilities (WRRF) get back into and maintain compliance with NPDES discharge permits. Their field toolkit has included an assortment of batch sampling kits and handheld instruments. Each tool had its place but each also had limitations and, as a result, the compliance puzzle often was missing important pieces. Increasingly, as nutrient limits were incorporated into discharge permits, the missing piece was characterizing the dynamics of nitrification and denitrification. By Patrick Higgins
