  • Aeration upgrade

    The community of Moscow is located in the northeast corner of Pennsylvania, approximately 10 miles southeast of Scranton. The current WWTP consists of an activated sludge system with three oxidation ditches in parallel operation. The total volume of all three ditches is 0.372 million gal per day (mgd), while the average size of each ditch is 180 ft by 24 ft by 6 ft deep. Previously, two of the ...

  • Collection system aeration and the microbial benefits

    In late 2015 Reliant Water Technologies introduced the Wet Well Wizard, an aeration tool for the wet wells in collection systems. During 14 months of field testing the patent pending Wizard System, the primary objectives were to eliminate FOG (fat, oil and grease) caps and to reduce H2S, eliminating it if possible. All trials were proven excellent with very few changes to the product that ...

  • 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 ...

  • Aeration system improves mixing, oxygenation, & maintenance

    When its brush rotor system failed, the city of Franklin, LA, dccidcd to replace it with an Airc-02 Triton aeration/mixer system, which about equaled the ongoing costs of refurbishing die rotors. The aerators met all the city's needs and a year later, city officials purchased more of the aerators for its second ditch. Back in 2000, Franklin's wastewater treatment plant consisted of an activated ...

  • 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 ...

  • Turbulence in continuous flow surface aeration systems

    Turbulence characteristics in an optimal continuous surface aeration system were investigated in this study. The experimental system consists of a rectangular tank, where flow is driven by equally spaced aerators placed on the liquid surface. The mass-transfer coefficient and turbulent parameters at the tank's inlet and outlet were measured to enable analysis of their interdependent ...

  • Municipal sludge characteristic changes under different aerating condition in a deep-shaft aeration system

    A pilot-scale municipal sewage sludge deep-shaft aeration system was implemented in Lanzhou, Gansu Province of China. The reactor depth was 60 m with a diameter of 1.0 m and the sludge to be treated came from a wastewater plant in Lanzhou. In order to obtain the optimum operation conditions, analysis was conducted on the transformations of the volatile suspended solids (VSS), temperature, pH, ...

  • Vortex in baffled surface aerator

    Baffled surface aerator and mixing tanks are different on the basis of the rotor placement. In mixing tanks, rotors are placed very deep in the tank, thus vortex creation can be prevented by placing the baffles. By definition, rotors are placed at or near the surface of water in surface aeration systems; complete prevention of vortex creation cannot be achieved by installing the baffles. Vortex ...
