Often times the biosolids management portion of the treatment plant may not be optimized, resulting in inefficient operation of the entire treatment plant. For instance, did you know that aerobic digestion is the second largest consumer of energy after biological treatment aeration at a wastewater treatment plant? Or, do you realize that up to 50% of the nutrient loading on any given day may be coming from the biosolids process?

The benefits of an OSCAR system are clear. The OSCAR control system is a customizable, integrated system comprised of hardware, software, and services. Designed to be used with Sanitaire biological treatment solutions, OSCAR helps plants meet their performance requirements and operating budgets.

Sanitaire has provided the wastewater treatment industry with innovative and cost-effective treatment technologies for over 35 years. This tradition continues with the Sanitaire Intermittent Cycle Extended Aeration (ICEAS) process, which is an advance sequencing batch reactor (SBR) technology for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment.

  • Sanitaire SBR System Boosts Capacity, Reliability Without Building A New Facility

    Jefferson City, the Capitol of Missouri, has operated a sanitary sewage collection system dating back to the 1800s. The generations of infrastructure included a trickling filter treatment plant that first entered service in 1967 and underwent major upgrades involving screening, primary clarification, and secondary treatment over the course of 1969-77.

  • A Model Integration Of State-Of-The-Art Technologies That Satisfied Both Initial And Long-Term Considerations

    The surrounding areas of Rock Creek Public Sewer District of Jefferson County, Missouri experienced substantial development in recent years overloading existing privately owned wastewater plant capacities.

  • Olathe, KS Cedar Creek Plant Boasts The First In-Line Fermenter In The Country

    The City of Olathe is located just outside of Kansas City and is home to a growing population of 126,000, making Olathe the fifth most populous city in Kansas. Residents depend on the local Cedar Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) to meet their water demand.

  • CASPERON Solution Brings Process, Operation And Cost Benefits To Michigan Facility

    For 15 years, plans to double the capacity of Michigan’s Zeeland Clean Water Plant remained stalled as the City of Zeeland worked toward a joint wastewater treatment contract with two neighboring Ottawa County communities. As a result, maintaining efficient aeration control posed a challenge for the 1.65 million gallons per day (MGD) facility. When expansion plans moved forward in 2016, the city alleviated those problems with the Xylem Sanitaire CASPERON activated sludge solution process, which eliminated the use of lime to treat waste and significantly reduced the volume of biosolid residuals.

  • Aerobic Digester Reduces Nutrient Return And Improves Energy Efficiency

    Faced with rising operational costs due to increasing energy and chemical prices, as well as stricter effluent permit limits, many operators and engineers are turning to performance optimizers and controls automation to enhance treatment processes and reduce operating costs while limiting capital expenses.


Sanitaire - A Xylem Brand is the world leader in diffused aeration and advanced biological treatment technologies. Beginning in 1967 Sanitaire® products have been used to create innovative wastewater treatment solutions for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment applications. Sanitaire® equipment and technologies are the industry standard and have been installed in thousands of communities and industries throughout the world.

Sanitaire® aeration systems provide high oxygen transfer that results in energy efficiency and cost savings for customers. We provide extensive application support to ensure you select the right product with optimized design. Our wide selection of diffuser technologies includes the age resistant Silver Series membrane disc, the durable ceramic disc diffuser available with in-situ cleaning, as well as various coarse bubble technologies.

Our advanced Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) technology is a complete biological treatment solution for municipal wastewater treatment and select industrial treatment applications. This innovative and cost effective treatment process can be configured for Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) and the most stringent effluent requirements. In addition to traditional SBR technology, Sanitaire® recommends the superior flexibility of the ICEAS® (Intermittent Cycle Extended Aeration) design, which does not require any flow diversion and offers smaller basin volume, single basin operation and uniform basin loading. The Sanitaire® ICEAS process provides continuous inflow in a single basin, even during settle and decant phases of the operating cycle.

Sanitaire® Drum Filters offer a cost effective, low energy tertiary treatment that only requires power during the backwash cycle. Our corrosion resistant components are low maintenance and can easily be added to new or existing installations.
