Aeration & Blowers White Papers And Case Studies

  1. Sticking with Innovation That Works
    3/28/2017

    With a population of about 15,000, Steinbach is the third largest city in Manitoba and one of the fastest growing areas in Canada. The current system has been operating since 1993, an eternity in the world of technology. Because the wastewater department was already familiar with operating the existing Xylem/Flygt M&C SCADA system with Aquaview software and APP controllers, they decided to inquire what new technologies the company could offer. Read the full case study to learn more.

  2. Solar-Powered Circulators Turn Around WWTP Lagoon’s Issues
    2/28/2017

    For years, the wastewater treatment plant in Villa Mercedes, David City, Panama emitted harsh odors and created a rampant mosquito population, a situation the neighboring residents found impossible to deal with. Treatment at the plant needed improvement to successfully treat up to 4.6 million gallons of wastewater per day, eliminate harsh odors and reduce the mosquito population.

  3. Free-To-Save: Frito-Lay Collaborates With Atlas Copco To Increase Energy Efficiency
    2/14/2017

    Frito-Lay, an affiliate of PepsiCo Foods, reinforced its leader position in environmental awareness, achieving an average of 30% energy efficiency and lower noise levels by choosing Atlas Copco screw blower technology for its water treatment facility.

  4. Anaerobic And Aerobic Treatment Solution For Paper Mill Wastewater

    Fluence provided the right solution for this paper mill to meet stringent permit discharge limits and produce renewable energy.

  5. A Small Town With Big Challenges
    11/14/2016

    Aqua America water treatment plant in Tiffin, Ohio, was built in the 1920s and is situated on the Sandusky River. The plant processes 3.4 million gallons per day and was facing challenges of producing high-quality drinking water. A full measure of seasonal variety, combined with the runoff from a thriving agricultural environment, caused the small-town water facility to constantly encounter adverse conditions. In an effort to remain compliant, Aqua America enhanced coagulation, but this increased sedimentation rates and exacerbated sludge blanket depths.

  6. Meeting Stringent Discharge Levels With AccuFAS
    11/14/2016

    When the Coldwater Board of Public Utilities in Coldwater, Michigan abruptly received new ammonia permit limits in August of 2007, they hired consultants to help guide them to the best solution for their new problem. With a full‐measure of influent waste variety consisting of residential, commercial, industrial and septage and a new seasonal permit limit of 2mg/L, Coldwater hoped for a budget friendly solution to consistently perform through peak flows and industrial shockloading.

  7. Smooth Operator
    10/31/2016

    All turbo manufacturers are not created equal. After a different supplier failed to perform, Aerzen’s technology, expertise, and customer service took the Charles River WWTP from extreme frustration to smooth operation.

  8. Improving Total Nitrogen Removal
    10/21/2016

    To protect the sensitive waters of the Neuse River Basin, the State of North Carolina formally adopted a nutrient management strategy in 1997 which established Total Maximum Daily Loads for all point source contributors of Total Nitrogen (TN) to the Neuse River. By upgrading its oxidation ditches, this Eastern NC plant saw a reduction of 76% TN compared to its average discharge from the past 6 years.

  9. Quality Effluent: BIO-DENITRO™ + Hydrotech Discfilter
    10/18/2016

    In order to meet the demand of growth within the city and to achieve stringent effluent limits, the City of Sanford worked with CPH Engineers to design the Sanford South Water Resource Center (WRC), located in the heart of Central Florida. The facility produces a high quality effluent of reclaimed water standards, which is distributed throughout the region.

  10. Complete Blower Package Results In Quiet Operation, Easy Maintenance
    9/21/2016

    Until 2012, the Kaufman, TX, Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) operated two separate aeration basins with mechanical surface aerators. As the plant’s equipment aged and required more frequent and expensive repairs and maintenance, the City of Kaufman followed its engineering firm’s recommendation to install a new, more efficient, fine bubble-diffused air system rather than simply replacing its old mixers with in-kind equipment.
