Wastewater Mixing White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Advanced Circulation Technology Combined With Solar Power Cuts Expensive Aerator Run-Time And Provides Efficient Mixing In Wastewater Treatment Ponds

    The energy and maintenance costs associated with mechanical aeration are compelling managers of municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) to find alternate technologies. The goal is to provide more efficient wastewater aeration and mixing by reducing high operation and maintenance costs associated with mechanical aerators. By Joel Bleth, president, SolarBee Inc.

  2. Performance Of A Conventional Surface Water Plant Using Mixed-Oxidants For Microflocculation And Final Disinfection

    The surface water source is from snow-melt and summer thunderstorm run-off from the mountains. This water is detained in McClure Reservoir (7876 ft elevation) and Nichols Reservoir (7483 ft elevation) upstream from the CRWTP, a conventional plant built in 1974 with a design capacity of 8 MGD. Because the City has limited surface water rights, and due to decreased demand, the treatment plant usually shuts down for 60 to 90 days during winter. The reservoirs thaw in spring and turn over in autumn, and during the summer rainy season, raw water turbidities may exceed 5 NTU. By MIOX Corporation

  3. Case Study: Aerator/Mixer System Gives China WWTP Trouble-Free Performance

    Aeration Industries International, Inc. is playing a key role in cleaning up water worldwide to help preserve the earth’s most precious resource, water. When the Chinese city of Lin An planned an expansion to their oxidation oval system, officials were looking for a new type of aeration system that would offer process performance and trouble free operation. The company's AIRE-O2 TRITON process aerator/mixers were the ideal solution for the Lin An wastewater treatment facility.

  4. Colorado Springs Chose AquaDDM® Mixers Over Submersible Directional Mixers For Optimum Anoxic Mixing

    To help meet the stringent water quality standards for denitrification, the Colorado Springs wastewater treatment facility has employed (20) 7.5 hp AquaDDM mixers.
