Evaluating Aeration Technology for Radon Removal

0.511.522.533.544.55 (0 votes)
Spray jet aeration, packed-tower aeration, and multistaged bubble aeration were evaluated for removal of radon from water. It was found that spray jet aeration was limited to <75 percent radon removal, but packed-tower aeration and multistaged bubble aeration were observed to be very effective and flexible for removing this radioactive gas. Removal efficiency of the packed tower was largely a function of packing height. The current design of multistaged bubble aeration probably limits the systems to wells with capacities of 800 gpm or less.
