It’s most common for rental blowers to be called upon when wastewater facilities experience a catastrophic failure, but there are many other uses where they can positively impact plant operations. Water Online spoke with Scott Werner, the Business Development Manager for Aerzen Rental USA, about the variety of ways wastewater operators and plant engineers can utilize rental blowers to proactively manage challenging circumstances and minimize the overall cost of a temporary solution.
Despite several recent high-profile hacks into municipal water systems, a significant number of utilities have yet to take the first key steps toward securing their networks. That’s according to a recent report — published by the Water Sector Coordinating Council and WaterISAC — based on a survey conducted this spring which showed that many water and wastewater operations need to make cybersecurity an urgent priority.
Researchers want to revolutionize resource recovery in municipal wastewater by providing a turbo boost to artificial intelligence.
The emergence of airflow-based control systems — which oversee the generation and distribution of air to the aeration basin to achieve a dissolved oxygen setpoint by using automated control valves and airflow meters — is one of the biggest wastewater treatment innovations in recent years. Water Online spoke with Greg Duffy of Aerzen about the way these intelligent systems address conventional aeration challenges and how Aerzen’s AERprocess solution is gaining steam in the market.
The City of Wichita wastewater utility was recently grappling with a difficult issue. In its updated permits, the State of Kansas imposed several nutrient limit targets — notably on nitrogen and phosphorus — that it knew the city would not be able to reach with the existing treatment systems. When issuing the permits, the state asked the city to optimize its operations to achieve those levels.
