Kärkölä municipality - rationalisation of Waste water plant

Situation in the beginning

  • two Brush aerators  capacity is not sufficient during  the peaks
  • Brush aerators demand relatively lot maintenance and are in the end of their working life
  • The flow is not sufficient  part of the sludge lands on the bottom of ring basin
  • Direct feedback connection from the oxygen sensor to the aerator via AC Drive is not possible because the Brush aerator creates water flow

Execution of project

Phase 1 - May 2006

  • Two Waterix AIRIT® 200 aerators are installed in addition to the existing brush aerators
  • The capacity is sufficient during the peaks
  • Mixing is boosted by Waterix AIRIT® 200 aerators and no sludge lands on the bottom of the ring basin

Phase 2 - December 2006

  • Waterix AIRIT® 200 control by oxygen sensor, 2 mg02/value is set

Phase 3 - 1 H 2008

  • Brush aerators are removed
  • Flow generators and four additional Waterix AIRIT® 200 aerators are installed

Kärkölä municipality - achieved benefits

  • Inexpensive solution compared with fine bubble diffusion (cost + installation)
  • Capacity is sufficient during the peaks
  • No sludge on the bottom of the basin
  • Aerator controls by oxygen sensor - > energy savings
  • No process cut offs during aerator maintenance
  • Easy to add aerators for future capacity needs
  • Better efficiency compared with fine bubble diffusion systems (basin depth 3,5 m
