KLa Systems is in the process of starting up their tenth MBR project using slot injector aeration technology. This last project is for a merchant chemical wastewater treatment plant and has a total oxygen transfer capacity of 7000lb/d. The slot injector system was chosen because of its proven oxygen transfer performance at high MLSS concentrations, flexible, low maintenance operating system, and +20 year design life. Since 2006,the KLa Systems slot injector aeration system has been operating successfully in MBR service at eight food/beverage processing plants and two chemical plants.
First introduced into the US market in 2004, slot injector aerators are two-phase jets with unique geometrical shapes and performance characteristics which result in a system that offers significant capital and energy savings compared to conventional jet aerators.
