  • 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 50% In Aeration Energy Expenses By Switching From Mechanical Aerators To An Ultrafine Bubble Aeration System Owned by a government’s agency in charge of generating and distributing electricity to 27 million customers, a wastewater plant, located in Hidalgo, Mexico treats municipal sewage and uses the treated water for cooling towers. But as the population grows and the plant generating capacity expands, so does the demand for more water.
  • KLa Slot Injector Aeration System For CFAS Process Touch Panel Manufacturing Plant Wastewater Treatment

    The plant manufactures touch panel and polarizer which are materials for LCD assemblies. Since the manufacturing process is a semiconductor process, the wastewater contains large quantities of organic solvent from developers, strippers and rinse liquid waste. By KLa Systems

ABOUT AERATION

 

A common first step in the secondary treatment process is to send wastewater to an aeration tank. In an aeration tank, bacterium is used to effectively break down pollutants into less harmful components. Wastewater aeration provides the appropriate oxygen level so that aerobic bacteria can thrive in degrading pollutants such as iron and manganese as part of the wastewater treatment process. Aeration can also be used to destroy anaerobic bacteria that perish in the presence of oxygen. Aerobes that can break down pollutants 10-100 times faster than anaerobes are used most frequently.

Aeration is also used to improve waste lagoons and other waterways such as lakes and reservoirs where oxygen deficiency contributes to taste, odor and pollutant problems. Equipment used for wastewater aeration includes low cascades, jet fountains, spray nozzles, blowers, submerged perforated pipe and porous plates or tubes. Whether the water is thrown into the air via a fountain or diffused by air bubbles being blown or drawn into the wastewater in an aeration tank, aeration works by increasing the area of contact between the oxygen in the air and water.

The most common wastewater aeration process in use today is the air diffusion process, where air is introduced from blowers through diffusion tubes suspended in a spiral flow tank, or in some cases, through diffuser plates in the bottom of the aeration tanks.
