  • Choosing Aeration Blowers

    Introduction Infrastructure spending in the United States has not kept pace with the population growth and many wastewater treatment plants are at peak capacity. The nation's wastewater systems and their ratepayers face a major challenge in funding the expansion, replacement, and maintenance of aging infrastructure over the next several decades. For this reason, plant engineers and ...

  • The principles of aeration and mixing utilizing process aerator technology

    Aeration and mixing are necessary elements for aerobic biological wastewater treatment processes to maintain a healthy, stabilized biological population and thus, insure optimal treatment of the wastewater assuming there is adequate contact time and substrate available. In the design of wastewater treatment plants, aeration typically involves supply of both oxygen and mixing. Aeration is a large ...

  • Wastewater lagoons – a new aeration concept

    The use of wastewater treatment lagoons, or stabilization ponds, is a common practice for rural municipalities and industrial facilities. Through the years there have been numerous designs for these ‘sludge settling basins,’ ranging from facultative, partial aerated, and fully aerated systems. But the primary reason for these systems is to utilize relatively shallow earthen ponds, or ...

  • A perfect pair: SBR designs & advanced aeration technology

    Conventional sequencing batch reactors (SBRs) that utilize diffused-air networks have existed in the U.S. for about three decades now. The reliability of controls and instrumentation has significantly improved in the last 10 to 15 years, and as a result, SBR plant designs are becoming more widely accepted. The attractiveness of their compact layout and ease of operation has also helped increase ...

  • Case study - Aeration retrofit in Troy, Alabama

    Troy Alabama’s Wastewater Treatment Plant was faced with broken discs causing dropping dissolved oxygen (DO) levels in their oxidation ditch. Aeration Industries International was called to help improve DO. The plant rented a 40hp Aire-O2 Triton®.  As rotors continued to break,  an additional Triton was rented. After seeing the performance of the rental equipment, six ...

  • Case study - Aeration ditch upgrade exceeds expectations

    Triton Process Aerators Meets Future Nitrogen Permit Regulations When the a Pennsylvania Sewer Authority was researching methods to improve the dissolved oxygen levels in its wastewater treatment plant’s oxidation ditches in 2001, they decided to totally replace its aging brush rotor system. They replaced the rotors with the  ...

  • Case study - Cheese manufacturer gets aeration upgrade

    Largest Cheese Manufacturer in the UK Gets Aeration Upgrade Dairy Crest Davidstow Creamery in Camelford is the largest cheddar cheese manufacturer in the UK. The process of collecting and processing milk is a 24/7 operation, generating effluent round the clock and needing to be treated and disposed of continuously. Effluent from the cheese-making process contains high fat content and ...

  • Cardiff WWTW aeration optimisation through scientific control

    Aeration optimisation of a 16 basin SBR plant running in ICEAS (Intermittent Cycle Extended Aeration System) mode was under taken by changing the operating parameters from the traditional design of dissolved oxygen (DO) control to a scientific approach using respirometry. Measuring the critical oxygen point for carbonaceous and nitrification bacteria and combining this with in-situ Oxygen Uptake ...

  • Efficient aeration system boosts energy savings

    A new efficient aeration system saves the Ontario, Ore., wastewater treatment facility $47,000 annually in energy costs. Besides giving this community a financial boost, the new system netted additional equipment cost savings by cutting aeration horsepower by more than half at the plant. The environmentally conscious city, located in the Oregon/Idaho border area, is meeting all of its effluent ...

  • A realistic dynamic blower energy consumption model for wastewater applications

    At wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) aeration is the largest energy consumer. This high energy consumption requires an accurate assessment in view of plant optimization. Despite the ever increasing detail in process models, models for energy production still lack detail to enable a global optimization of WWTPs. A new dynamic model for a more accurate prediction of aeration energy costs in ...

  • Improving Efficiency and Reducing Energy and Maintenance Costs in Aeration Systems

    Energy costs for operating an aeration system in a biological wastewater treatment plant often times exceeds 75% of the total energy costs for the plant. Adding in blower and diffuser maintenance costs, Aeration Systems are easily the most costly portion of the treatment process, many times consuming so many resources that other parts of the plant may not be properly maintained or operated. By ...

  • Use of online nutrient monitoring for automatic aeration and nitrate recycle pump control

    The Northside Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in Kinston, NC was expanded and upgraded in 2006 for biological nutrient removal (BNR) to meet limits of 3 mg/L total nitrogen (TN) and 1 mg/L total phosphorus (TP). In addition to the traditional approach of controlling the blowers based on dissolved oxygen (DO) readings, the City decided to implement an aeration basin blower control system using ...

  • 10 Questions (And Answers) That May Change the Way You Aerate

    Slot Injector: How does the slot-shaped nozzle of the Slot Injector™ aeration system improve performance? The slot shaped nozzle and mixing chamber provide a larger shear surface for mass transfer than a circular jet of identical area. This unique shape results in a high percentage of gas dissolution and superior oxygen transfer rates with a 10-20% reduction in energy usage ...

  • KLa Slot Injector™ Aeration System Expands the Capacity of an SBR at a Landfill Leachate Treatment Facility

    The Challenge A landfill had an existing single basin SBR plant to process the leachate which is notable for its high nitrogen load. The original system was installed with a fine pore diffuser aeration system and due to the chemical/biological composition of the mixed liquor it was prone to diffuser fouling and premature membrane failure Over time this was detrimental to the biological process ...
