AERATION & BLOWERS RESOURCES
HST™ Turbocompressor For Sky-High Savings In Wastewater Treatment
The town of Fraser, Colorado, USA, with an annual mean temperature of 32.5°F is the coldest town in the lower 48 states and gets frost year-round. At an elevation of 8’574 feet, it is also the highest location for Sulzer’s HST 20 turbocompressor in the world. The Fraser WWTP high-speed blower upgrade was completed in early 2019, replacing older centrifugal blowers, which were loud and costly to operate.
HST™ Turbocompressor Survives A Category 4 Hurricane
Victoria, Texas, is a small South Texas town of approx. 65’000 people just 30 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico. This area is considered as humid subtropical, and the temperatures regularly exceed 100°F for the months of June through August. A record high temperature of 111°F was recorded in September 2000 and a record low of 9°F in December 1989. This location displays one of the most extreme temperature differentials in the United States. The HST high-speed blower was used in the new plant design which replaced an older two-stage trickling filter design in the Victoria WWTP.
Refinery Treats Groundwater Contamination While Saving Precious Facility Space
A large, Midwestern oil refinery installed two identical, 110’ diameter S&L Model R OXIGEST® treatment systems to solve a groundwater treatment problem on-site. Each plant incorporates aeration, clarification, and effluent holding, treating peak flows of 7.2 MGD combined; 4.3 MGD in each plant.
Olathe, KS Cedar Creek Plant Boasts The First In-Line Fermenter In The Country
The City of Olathe is located just outside of Kansas City and is home to a growing population of 126,000, making Olathe the fifth most populous city in Kansas. Residents depend on the local Cedar Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) to meet their water demand.
A Model Integration Of State-Of-The-Art Technologies That Satisfied Both Initial And Long-Term Considerations
The surrounding areas of Rock Creek Public Sewer District of Jefferson County, Missouri experienced substantial development in recent years overloading existing privately owned wastewater plant capacities.
Sanitaire SBR System Boosts Capacity, Reliability Without Building A New Facility
Jefferson City, the Capitol of Missouri, has operated a sanitary sewage collection system dating back to the 1800s. The generations of infrastructure included a trickling filter treatment plant that first entered service in 1967 and underwent major upgrades involving screening, primary clarification, and secondary treatment over the course of 1969-77.
CASPERON Solution Brings Process, Operation And Cost Benefits To Michigan Facility
For 15 years, plans to double the capacity of Michigan’s Zeeland Clean Water Plant remained stalled as the City of Zeeland worked toward a joint wastewater treatment contract with two neighboring Ottawa County communities. As a result, maintaining efficient aeration control posed a challenge for the 1.65 million gallons per day (MGD) facility. When expansion plans moved forward in 2016, the city alleviated those problems with the Xylem Sanitaire CASPERON activated sludge solution process, which eliminated the use of lime to treat waste and significantly reduced the volume of biosolid residuals.
Seeking Versatility And Simplicity In Troy, Alabama
Troy Alabama’s Wastewater Treatment Plant was faced with broken discs causing dropping dissolved oxygen (DO) levels in their oxidation ditch.
Sugar Beet Harvest Season Simplified With Aire-O2 Tritons®
Sucrafor, a COSUMAR Groupe sugar beet processing plant in north east (Oriental) of Morocco, designed a wastewater treatment plant to maintain high organic loads through anaerobic, anoxic, and aerated lagoons; as they crush more than 5,000 tons of sugar beets daily.
Improved Mixing And Fine Bubble Aeration Help To Reduce Water Exchange, Shorten Production Cycle And Increase Overall Growth Rates
Finca Empacadora de Tilapia Milagro is one of the fastest growing and successful tilapia projects in Central America since its operation started in 2015.
