AERATION & BLOWERS RESOURCES

  • Variable speed control for all types of industrial equipment is readily available on the market with competitive pricing to non-variable speed controlled alternatives, including in the air compressor industry. With the advent of prescriptive rebate programs for variable speed compressors and other equipment, the demand for these types of controls has increased.

  • We all love it when a plan comes together. In July 1952 in Arkansas, when President Harry S. Truman dedicated the Bull Shoals dam on the White River, which created Bull Shoals Lake, it, as planned, brought about a boom in tourism — and how.

  • The basic function of a wastewater treatment (WWT) system is to accelerate the natural process that purifies water. And low-pressure air blowers are used in WWT for two key purposes that help accomplish this goal: aeration and agitation.

  • The City of Cumberland (MD) wastewater treatment plant could see wild swings in its dissolved oxygen (DO) levels until it replaced its air control system with Aerzen AERprocess, an intelligent airflow control system. Now, the city enjoys vastly improved DO control in individual zones and across the entire process, as well as significant savings on its energy bills.

  • Vienna’s climate-neutral wastewater treatment plant gets efficiency boost with Sulzer technologies

  • At Schreiber Foods' wastewater treatment plant in Utah, mineral acids had been used for pH control in the past but were discontinued due to safety and handling issues. With an average daily flow of 250,000 gallons, the cheese and yogurt facility struggled to meet discharge permit requirements. Facility owners desired a safer, more cost-effective solution that would provide automatic control over process pH levels. Read the full case study to learn more.

  • Plant managers at Del Monte Foods in Siloam Springs, Ark. utilized a 14 million gallon facultative lagoon to provide treatment before applying the effluent on 500 acres of land nearby. However, the facultative lagoon was unable to meet the municipal pretreatment permit requirements, resulting in surcharges of $450,000 per month. Read the full case study to learn more. 

  • The Plant’s wastewater treatment facility uses four, covered anerobic lagoons to manage BOD, pretreating wastewater prior to sending the effluent to a pumping station which directs the wastewater into the municipal collection system for final treatment at the City’s wastewater treatment plant. Read more to learn how the company used hydrogen peroxide and a catalyst to maintain an aerobic environment but was unable to adequately mitigate the odor from the facility’s wastewater.

  • Wastewater from the meat processing facility is treated using a sequence batch reactor and an aerobic lagoon that discharges to surface waters following treatment. The facility replaced surface aeration equipment with two, 350-HP the “no-splash,” side-stream SDOX® systems retrofitted to the treatment basin. Read the full case study to learn the results.

  • The wastewater facility servicing the Company's Millsboro processing plant uses a continuous process reactor and discharges to 900 acres of Company-owned cropland using spray irrigation. Read the full case study to learn how the facility replaced mechanical surface aerators with SDOX® technology to fulfill the oxygen needs of the various biological treatment processes without interrupting operations.

WASTEWATER AERATION SOLUTIONS

  • Airmaster Aerator "TURBO X-TREME" Aeration- 10 Hp - 230V/460/3Ph Each aerator shall be capable of producing 3.0 lbs. of oxygen per nameplate horsepower per hour under normal conditions during aeration. Each 15 HP aerator shall be capable of pumping and mixing approximately 2,016,000 gallons per day under normal conditions and continuous operation
  • Aqua-Jet® SS-PW Aerator for Drinking Water Applications

    The Aqua-Jet® surface mechanical aerator, manufactured by Aqua-Aerobic Systems, has been approved by Underwriters Laboratory (UL) to meet ANSI/NSF STANDARD 61 requirements for use in potable water applications.

  • The Wet Well Wizard

    The Wet Well Wizard is the only ‘one-size-fits-all’ wet well aeration system that has no moving parts, is completely non-corrosive, is simple to install, and utilizes no electricity underwater. It can be installed in 30 minutes and requires almost no maintenance.

  • Replace Aging Brush Rotors With Envirex® Disc Aerators

    Improved oxidation ditch mixing efficiency, lower energy use, and reduce maintenance with Envirex® Disc Aerators from Evoqua. Envirex disc aerators fit all existing single or multichannel oxidation ditch applications with little or no modification required.

  • AERprocess

    Aerzen’s AERprocess Dissolved Oxygen Control is an integrated solution for controlling the dissolved oxygen (DO) concentration in the activated sludge treatment process and the blowers used to generate the process air flow requirement. The AERprocess system is able to maintain DO concentrations at their set points using a smart and efficient control strategy.

WASTEWATER AERATION VIDEOS

With over 50+ years of experience in the Water & Wastewater industries globally, Fluid Components International LLC (FCI) has developed unique solutions for the measurement of liquids and gases. In this session we will examine air/gas flow measurement challenges that are commonly found in applications related to processes such as Blower Systems, Aerobic Digestion, Anaerobic Digestion [Digester/Biogas], Odor Control, Co-Generation/CHP and Natural Gas sub-metering. Addressing these application issues on the front end can lead to successful startup of your project.
