    The Good And Bad Of Wastewater Instrumentation: Pros, Cons, And Opportunities

    Instrumentation is heavily pushed to achieve efficiency, but it only works when you use it correctly – and many utilities don’t.

  • Case Study: Monster Compactor Cleans-Up At Seattle Treatment Plant
    Case Study: Monster Compactor Cleans-Up At Seattle Treatment Plant In 2004 a team of researchers from King County’s Wastewater Treatment Division took on the task of cleaning up problems with the discharged screenings at their two treatment plants. The screenings were filled with excessive water, fecal and other organic matter. By JWC Environmental
  • Worthy Brewing Company Case Study
    Worthy Brewing Company Case Study

    Worthy Brewing approached ClearBlu Environmental at the 2011 Craft Brewers Conference. The brewery was still in its planning stages, but knew that some extent of wastewater treatment would need to be incorporated to satisfy city requirements. ClearBlu worked closely with the facility’s architect and engineers to incorporate plans and allocate space for a complete aerobic treatment system at the facility. Upon startup, the brewery was only required to implement a pre-treatment system, which includes solids screening, settling, and automatic pH balancing. They have all ruggedized equipment that will support their system through the brewery’s expected expansion.

  • Saving 65 % Energy In Aeration

    At a municipal WWTP in southern Sweden, a new aeration control system was installed together with new screw blower and Sanitaire Silver Series II LP diffusers in one of the two treatment lines.

  • Mixing Comparison: Hydraulic Or Gas
    Mixing Comparison: Hydraulic Or Gas

    Fairfield-Suisun Sewer District (FSSD) in California installed a Vaughan Rotamix® hydraulic mixing system next to an identical anaerobic digester with a 7-year-old gas mixing system. Rotamix® installation was completed in Sept, 2010.

  • Three Steps For Reducing Total Cost Of Ownership (TCO) In Pumping Systems
    Three Steps For Reducing Total Cost Of Ownership (TCO) In Pumping Systems

    Energy costs have become an increasing contributor to pumping systems Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). In fact, energy cost represents 40% of the TCO of a typical pump. It is possible to reduce the electrical consumption by at least 30% utilizing Variable Speed Drives while decreasing maintenance costs associated with the mechanical driven system. This paper explains how to reduce TCO with a limited investment focused on three key areas: energy efficiency management, asset management, and energy cost management.

  • Lagoon-Based Extended Aeration System Meets Effluent Requirement For Year-Round Ammonia Reduction Stoddard County’s sewer district required a new wastewater treatment facility to service residential growth in the community. By Environmental Dynamics, Inc.
  • Article: Aerators Enhance Aerobic Digestion Process
    Article: Aerators Enhance Aerobic Digestion Process The city of Eden, N.C., operates an extended aeration process designed for an average flow rate of 13.5 mgd with a mixed liquor suspended solids concentration that typically checks in about 6,000 mg/l
  • The Evolution From Small-blade To Large-blade Agitators

    To appreciate the importance of mixing, it helps to consider the array of products that require mixing as they are made or refined. Stirring with a stick may seem crude, but for an application like cooking, it is still a state-of-the-art mixing technology. As increasing volumes of material need mixing, larger and more automated mixing technologies are required. By Jared Wray, P.E., and Daniel Alper

  • Eliminating Sludge Islands In Your Wastewater Lagoon
    Eliminating Sludge Islands In Your Wastewater Lagoon

    Old municipal and industrial wastewater lagoons have the tendency to build islands of sludge at various locations around the lagoon. It is most common for older lagoons to build such islands wherever wastewater enters the lagoons. By Jim Dartez

Aeration System

Aeration System

ClearBlu Environmental focuses on complete aerobic digestion of organic waste. This process is desirable over anaerobic digestion because it is fast, odor free, and prevents the need for any solids removal procedures. Aerobic digestion is desirable over DAF systems because it eliminates the need for costly chemical use and disposal. ClearBlu uses a unique aeration technology known as microbubble aeration, to achieve an aquatic environment which supports a bacteria population capable of complete digestion.  This is the key difference over conventional technologies.
