Often given little consideration in the overall design and operation of wastewater facilities, submersible mixers are generally selected for worst-case scenarios, based on flow or loading. Because the need for mixing varies greatly in the course of a given treatment cycle, the result is overmixing, a practice often employed to address the worst-case scenario. In other words, to avoid the risk of under-mixing, engineers design for seldom-occurring peak conditions of maximum plant flow or maximum load, setting aside more common average conditions, and mostly ignoring minimum conditions. Unfortunately, this practice wastes energy and oftentimes results in sub-optimal process.
In this white paper, discover what you can do with adaptive mixers and some of their application opportunities.
