Aeration & Blowers White Papers And Case Studies

  1. IFAS System Doubles Ammonia Removal Capacity

    In August of 2007, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality issued seasonal ammonia discharge limits for the Coldwater Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP), which included a daily maximum ammonia concentration of 2.0 mg/L between the months of May and November.

  2. Albertville WWTP Uses Biogas Blower To Replace Natural Gas To Fuel Boilers

    As part of an ongoing effort to improve efficiency and lifecycle costs across all of its projects, a Municipal Utilities Board in Albertville, Ala., set out to upgrade solids handling at the WWTP and pursue Class A biosolids certification, a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) designation for dewatered and heated sludge that contains low levels of pathogens.

  3. How To Revolutionize The Water Industry In 5 Simple Steps

    Turning wastewater into drinking water. Fueling cars with tap water. Installing “waterless” toilets in airport restrooms. Each and every day, people around the globe are trying to transform the water industry in many ways. Here are five steps to help you revolutionize the water industry.

  4. Los Alamos WWTP Gains Turndown Capability And Saves Energy With Hybrid Blowers

    Los Alamos, NM, the former site of topsecret laboratories where government scientists developed the atomic bomb during World War II, is once again a town at the forefront of new technology.

  5. Desalination Serves Coastal Argentine City

    When a series of water crises in 2014 disrupted conventional utility services in the coastal Argentine city of Caleta Olivia, the city needed a way to ensure an uninterrupted water supply.

  6. Tornado Aerators At Chicago O’Hare Wastewater Treatment Reservoir

    The Chicago area is served by a combined sewer network that carries both raw sewage and storm water.

  7. Sulzer Pumps Reduce Downtime At Water Utility

    Winslow Township — the largest town in Camden County, NJ — sought relief from its clog-prone, unreliable pumps.

  8. Aeration And Mixing Solutions For Freshwater Remediation

    FluenceTORNADO® Self-aspirating surface Aerators and submerged Diffused Air Systems helped to rejuvenate the Laguna Niguel fresh water reservoir in Southern California. The aerators removed the algae and odor problems naturally, and kept the oxygen content of the water high enough to support a profitable fishing industry.

  9. Activating The Sludge In Small Municipal Facultative Waste Lagoon Systems

    Wastewater treatment lagoons were originally facultative in design — shallow, single and multi-cell lagoon systems that counted on wind, sunlight, anaerobic bacteria, and time for the digestion of the organic components of the wastewater.

  10. Bioloop Retrofit Reduces Energy Consumption By 43 Percent

    When a broken shaft caused a malfunction in one of the brush aerators at the village of Liberty, NY, WWTP, the village worked with its engineers to develop a plan for repair and upgrade.
