WASTEWATER MIXING WHITE PAPERS AND CASE STUDIES

A More Reliable, More Efficient Aerator – Tomball, TX WWTP
A More Reliable, More Efficient Aerator – Tomball, TX WWTP

​In 2013, operators of the Tomball, Texas Wastewater Treatment Plant were facing increasing maintenance issues with three brush aerators operating in the plant's two-channel oxidation ditch. The aerator failures were threatening to compromise effluent quality and environmental compliance. Tomball needed replacements.​

  • Activating The Sludge In Small Municipal Facultative Waste Lagoon Systems
    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.

  • Submersible Aerators Blast Off At Naval Air Station WWTP

    When the Jacksonville, Florida Naval Air Station needed to increase oxygen in their aeration basins, they turned to RWL Water. Five submersible HURRICANE aerators provide bottom-up mixing, drawing surface air and dispersing it in a 360-degree pattern near the basin floor. Long bubble hang time results in excellent oxygen transfer, and ensures excellent BOD and ammonia removal, treating flows up to 3 MGD.

Impeller Materials Impeller Materials

Customers often ask us: “What's the best impeller material?” Unfortunately, there is no standard answer because there is no such thing as standard wastewater. Since there are different types of wastewater, material choice for specific sewage applications is critical for ensuring long pump life.

Turbo Mixer Turbo Mixer

Vaughan’s Turbo Mixer is a propeller mixer mounted vertically inside an 18” elbow. This mixer has replaced many submersible propeller mixers which have experienced motor or gearbox failure due to fluid inleakage. The Turbo can mix a pit with only one foot of liquid above the floor, something a horizontal shaft submersible mixer cannot do.

RWL Water Twister Low-Speed Surface Aerator RWL Water Twister Low-Speed Surface Aerator

The Twister aerator provides outstanding mixing and durability for wastewater treatment and supplemental aeration. The slow-moving rotating turbine’s specially designed vanes create a strong pumping force that pulls water up from the basin. This provides an ideal air-to-water interface, creates high oxygen transfer, and optimizes the wastewater treatment process.

Energy Efficiency Boosted By Replacing Controls Not Blowers Energy Efficiency Boosted By Replacing Controls Not Blowers

At the wastewater treatment facility, the biggest energy consumer is almost always the multistage aeration blowers. Replacing these blowers with high speed turbo blowers can save energy but the short-term cost to replace the existing blowers, reroute pipe and set new foundations can make the change a hard sell.
