  • Los Alamos WWTP Gains Turndown Capability And Saves Energy With Hybrid Blowers

    Los Alamos, NM, the former site of topsecret laboratories where government scientists developed the atomic bomb during World War II, is once again a town at the forefront of new technology.

  • Freeport Wastewater Treatment Plant Saves Money And Energy With Hybrid Blowers

    Best known as the home of outdoor retailer L.L. Bean, the community of Freeport is a popular summer destination on the shore of Casco Bay in southern coastal Maine. In 2010, the Freeport Sewer District brought in engineering firm Woodard & Curran (also of Freeport), to conduct an energy analysis of the Freeport Wastewater Treatment Facility. The assessment revealed that the Freeport plant consumed more than 8.9 kBtu per gallon of wastewater treated, more than double the national average of 4.1 kBtu per gallon. While an outdated oil heating system contributed to the overall inefficiency, the plant’s 30-year-old multistage centrifugal aeration blowers accounted for as much as 80 percent of the electricity consumption.

  • 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.

  • Activating The Sludge In Small Municipal Facultative Waste Lagoon Systems

    Wastewater treatment lagoons were originally facultative in design — shallow, single and multi-cell lagoon systems that counted on wind, sunlight, anaerobic bacteria, and time for the digestion of the organic components of the wastewater.
