  • Blower Efficiency Enhanced With Variable Frequency Drives

    Newnan Utilities’ Wahoo Creek Facility is a three million gallon a day wastewater treatment facility which has won the Environmental Protection Agency’s Georgia, Southeast, and National Wastewater Treatment Plant of the Year Awards.

  • Seepage Water Treatment: ZS Screw Blower Supplies Bacteria With Air In the seepage water treatment installation at the M√ľnster waste management center, a screw blower from Atlas Copco supplies aerobic bacteria with air. The low-maintenance technology and the integrated frequency inverter were the deciding factors to use the energy-efficient ZS 55+ VSD.
  • Upgrade To Diffused Aeration Results In Significant Energy Savings

    After 35 years of use,  the fiberglass jet aeration manifolds in the Western Regional Water Reclamation Plant (Dayton, Ohio) had deteriorated, rendering four of eight wastewater aeration tanks inoperable. Managers recognized an opportunity to utilize a fine bubble diffused aeration system that eliminated the need for the pumps. The result: higher oxygen-transfer efficiency and reduced power costs to operate the system.

  • Wastewater Treatment Plant Reduces Energy Consumption, Noise With Turbo Blower Technology

    Built in 1974, the Blue River Wastewater Treatment Plant in Silverthorne, Colorado, provides wastewater services to the communities of Silverthorne, Dillon, Dillon Valley, Buffalo Mountain, and Mesa Cortina. Faced with rising energy costs and aging equipment, the Silverthorne-Dillon Joint Sewer Authority (JSA) identified a need to replace the plant’s original multistage centrifugal blowers with new technology that would reduce energy consumption and provide steady and reliable operation.
