WASTEWATER AERATION & BLOWERS WHITE PAPERS AND CASE STUDIES

Small Footprint, Big Results: California Casino Wins With MBR

Quechan Casino Resort, a gaming facility located on Native American owned land in Winterhaven, California, began its wastewater treatment operations in January 2009.

Wastewater Energy Program Case Study: Scheid Vineyards

Scheid Vineyards, located in Greenfield, California, captures wastewater influent from the winery in three aeration ponds to supply the needed biological oxygen demand (BOD) to treat the effluent prior to being used for irrigation. In 2009, the wastewater plant processed over 8 million gallons of wastewater. The existing aeration system was inefficient and maintenance intensive leading the facility to explore alternative solutions.

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.
