1500 Series For Cost-conscious Municipal and Industrial Water Markets

1500 Series For Cost-conscious Municipal and Industrial Water Markets

EPDM elastomers’ fully saturated backbone lends these diffusers superb resistance to ozone and oxygen, while its non-polar nature provides resistance to ketones and alcohols. These economical membranes also offer excellent chemical, heat, acid and phosphate fluid resistance. With good low temperature flexibility, this series’ technology provides optimum performance and stability over a broad range of operating temperatures. Our Columbus, Drake and Magellan membrane technology is not recommended for applications where petroleum or mineral oils, or di-ester lubricants are present.

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.
