Energy Savings With Jet Aeration: The Devil Is In The Details

Conserving energy and saving costs are always on the minds of wastewater professionals. Aeration accounts for more than 50 percent of electrical usage at most treatment plants. Improved aeration efficiency will always work toward the goals of saving energy and reducing operating costs.

Using jet aeration for certain unit processes can reduce electrical usage. However, to take maximum advantage of jet aeration system efficiencies, engineers must concentrate on many factors during design. Details are important.
