Designing a wastewater treatment system requires incorporating a wide range of knowledge areas to create a setup that can achieve treatment goals. Tried and true mixing systems, such as jet mixers, are reliable, easy to operate, and have known benefits. However, mixing is one of the largest energy-consuming functions in wastewater treatment. With many in both industrial and municipal sectors looking to cut down on energy costs, the pressure falls on engineers to deliver systems that are both reliable and more energy efficient. Thankfully, the simple addition of variable frequency drives (VFDs) to mixing pumps can help achieve those goals.

VFDs feature dynamic active energy control algorithms that offer operators the ability to fine tune energy usage and eliminate excess power consumption. The following use cases show how VFDs can improve operational efficiency in wastewater treatment.
