WASTEWATER AERATION & BLOWERS WHITE PAPERS AND CASE STUDIES
Xylem has extensive experience in the Food and Beverage industry converting water challenges into business advantages. If you have compliance or production issues, we can help. Read more for three brief case studies showing how we’ve done exactly that.
Packaged Wastewater Treatment Plant Meets Tricky Challenge
Packaged Wastewater Treatment Plants offer many advantages, flexibility notwithstanding. One plant in particular, located in Georgia, needed to be upgraded to handle the increased flows from a growing city and to address new effluent discharge regulations. The tight plant site offered minimal opportunity for routine expansion of the packaged wastewater plant volumes, hence special designs were needed. Learn how this 200,000 GPD system is thriving.
Turbo Blower Technology Saves Money And Energy For City Of Adelanto WWTP
The City of Adelanto, Calif., wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) receives an average flow of 2.2 million gallons per day (MGD), but had a permit that allowed treatment of only 1.5 MGD.
A Radical Solution: Lagoon Management Utilizing Natural Biological Processes
The city of Davisboro is located in Washington County, Georgia. The 2012 census population was 1,793 at the 2013 census. The population includes Washington State Prison, approximately 1,500 prisoners.
How To Select The Most Effective Blower Technology For Wastewater Applications
Given numerous variables when selecting an aeration blower system for wastewater applications, and equally numerous claims by technology providers, it is not surprising that confusion exists. Worse than confusion is the disappointment that results when a blower technology fails to perform as anticipated — and operating cost and efficiency benefits go unrealized.
Predicting WWTP Sludge Production And Power Savings From Facultative Operation Of Aerobic Digesters
The objective of this white paper is the prediction of the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) sludge production and subsequent power savings realized from operating the aerobic digesters via facultative digestion using technology from ENNIX(6) INC. Development of the predictive spreadsheet permits one to demonstrate the power savings to potential users of the facultative digestion(6) technology.
Two AquaDisk Cloth Media Filters Replace Six Granular Media Units, Boosting Capacity 540% And Cutting Backwash Volume By 97%
The Portland, Indiana, Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) had been using six granular-media filter units for tertiary treatment since the 1980s. The plant’s treatment protocol includes fine screens for grit removal, followed by primary clarifiers, trickling filters, aeration basins, secondary clarifiers, the tertiary treatment system, and then chlorine disinfection.
The City of East Providence WWTP was asked by RIDEM to upgrade its facilities to increase treatment capacity and also meet a new more stringent Total Nitrogen limit.

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.
