AERATION & BLOWERS RESOURCES

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The wastewater pre-treatment plant processes effluent from the manufacturing facility prior to discharging into the sanitary sewer system for treatment at the municipal wastewater facility. Use of sulphuric acid to manage the pH of the wastewater in the buffering reactor tank prior to entering the DAF for solids and oil removal was considered to be an unnecessary risk requiring significant safety protocols.

WASTEWATER AERATION SOLUTIONS

  • Airmaster Aerator "TURBO X-TREME" Aeration - 20 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 4,032,000 gallons per day under normal conditions and continuous operation
  • RollsAIR Extended Aeration Systems

    RollsAIR™ & RollsAIR™ HS-STP®: Offering versatility and consistent high performance for multi-family residential and large commercial properties. The RollsAIR™ and the RollsAIR™ HS-STP® offer a cost effective method to treat larger flows for a multitude of applications.

  • Submersible Aerator Mixer Type ABS OKI

    The OKI submersible aerator is a heavy-duty, non-clogging, gentle mixing unit which can operate both as an aerator and as a mixer for wastewater and water treatment in municipal and industrial plants. It is used for sludge stabilization in SBR, MBR, and MBBR processes.

  • 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.

  • Optimizing Air Flows To Aeration Basins

    As a result of clean energy mandates and the rising cost of energy, wastewater treatment facilities around the country are retrofitting their instrumentation to run highly efficient, cost-effective, clean facilities. To reduce emissions and produce clean energy, solid wastes are often digested in large digester tanks to reduce the volume of waste (sludge) and produce more biogas, which is then used as fuel in the cogeneration process. However, a clean environment calls for not just clean air and clean energy, but clean water as well.
