Aeration & Blowers White Papers And Case Studies

  1. In-Situ Oxygenation System Enables Increase In Capacity For Municipal Wastewater Treatment Facility

    To increase capacity within the existing footprint of a wastewater treatment facility in Michigan, two existing tanks were converted to aeration tanks with pure-oxygen aeration provided by Praxair’s In-Situ Oxygenation (I-SOTM) System.

  2. AquaSBR System Installed To Increase Capacity In A Small Footprint

    The West Central Conservancy District (WCCD), located in Hendricks County, IN, was formed to resolve sewer issues that the service area was experiencing with the local utilities company in the mid- ’80s.

  3. WWTF Receives EPA Award For Achieving Low Level Nutrient Limits

    Lee Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF), located in Massachusetts, received an award for its excellent treatment performance in 2012 from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 4 years after start-up.

  4. Innovative Use Of Dissolved Air Flotation With Biosorption As Primary Treatment To Approach Energy Neutrality In WWTP’s

    This paper presents two types of DAF applications together with biosorption (the “Captivator system”) as primary treatments. In one case, the Captivator system is the sole primary treatment for a new plant installation and helps to gain 65 percent more biogas while requiring only 44 percent of aeration for COD oxidation, compared to a conventional process.

  5. Pulp and Paper Mill Finds Solution To Improve Onsite Lagoons

    Pronal, a recycled paper plant, produces craft paper. The plant produces an average flow of 14,000 m3/day (3.7 MGD) of wastewater with high contents of Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and Total Suspended Solids (TSS).

  6. Submersible Pumps Help With Flood Control

    Sims Bayou begins near Missouri City, TX, and meanders northeast until it reaches Buffalo Bayou.

  7. Switch To Hybrid Blowers Offsets 68% Electrical Rate Increase For WWTP

    The Old Orchard Beach Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) serves the town of Old Orchard Beach, Maine, a coastal resort community where the population swells from 9,000 year-round residents to 75,000 in late June through early August, when seasonal residents and day trippers descend for the peak summer months.

  8. Why ASME PTC10 Is Not Sufficient To Define Testing Of A High Speed Turbo Blower

    The technology to produce low pressure air, an energy intensive ingredient in the wastewater process, has made significant steps forward in recent years. Unfortunately, the specifications for testing these new sophisticated air producers have not kept pace.

  9. Solving Aeration Challenges Across The Globe

    The US Army Corps of Engineers chose Fluence when they needed expert technology to treat wastewater at the largest Afghan National Army military post in the Nangahar Province of Afghanistan.

  10. Packaged Wastewater Treatment Plant Meets Tricky Challenge

    Packaged Wastewater Treatment Plants offer many advantages, flexibility notwithstanding. One plant in particular, located in Georgia, needed to be upgraded to handle the increased flows from a growing city and to address new effluent discharge regulations.  The tight plant site offered minimal opportunity for routine expansion of the packaged wastewater plant volumes, hence special designs were needed.
