Aeration & Blowers White Papers And Case Studies

  1. Packaged Wastewater Treatment For Uneven Terrain
    7/31/2017

    Storey County, NV, just southeast of Reno, needed to replace an outdated wastewater treatment plant that serves the historic communities of Virginia City and Gold Hill. The new site was on the side of a hill, presenting challenges for the design of the plant and the orientation of its processes. Also, the new plant area was entirely within a district on the National Register of Historic Places. Read the full case study to learn how the new modular design allows for an efficient wastewater treatment solution.

  2. Blower System Integration For Wastewater Aeration Applications
    7/27/2017

    The overall wastewater treatment process is complex, and each step is integral to ensuring water is properly purified. Effluent ends up in the plants, containing substances that must be removed before the water can be properly cleaned and returned for use. The range of potential contaminants is almost endless, and can include food, pulp, waste, or other substances. Afterwards, the water requires further scrubbing, with the aid of bacteria. It is in this part of the process that compressed air (ideally provided by energy-efficient rotary lobe blowers) plays a vital role.

  3. Use Of Pure Oxygen To Resolve Capacity And Odor Problems
    7/27/2017

    The Escalon Industrial Waste Water Treatment Facility’s service area is seasonal and centered on tomato and pickle processing. The production season (roughly mid-July through mid-October) sees high hydraulic- and BOD loads that strain the facility’s capacity. During the high season highly variable BOD load depletes DO and causes permit violations and odor complaints. Praxair installed 4 X 15 HP Medium Velocity Oxygenation (MVO™ oxygenation system), with the ability to deliver up to 6 TPD of oxygen to supplement the existing aeration capacity at the facility.

  4. Affordable Wastewater Collection And Treatment
    7/26/2017

    A modern, master-planned community in the Texas Hill Country needed an affordable wastewater collection and treatment system that could be installed in phases and would perform as reliably as a large municipal system but without the cost, odor, or need for a full-time operator.

  5. Aeration System Eliminates Odors From Winery Wastewater Lagoons
    5/1/2017

    A California winery was having odor problems from its wastewater evaporation lagoons. The wash and wastewater from this facility contain large amounts of organic matter. The wastewater is collected and pumped to two main lagoons for evaporation, percolation, and sprinkler irrigation.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Anaerobic And Aerobic Treatment Solution For Paper Mill Wastewater
    12/7/2016

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

  10. 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.
