  • Whistle Blower

    It is always interesting to get a call from someone at the EPA. "Hey Chris, we have a copy of a database and need some help understanding how the data is stored." It turns out that these specific callers had been auditing a plant and had requested a complete copy of the database. Their questions were very specific and it was very clear they thought someone had been falsifying data. They ...

  • A breath of nothing is decisive: AERZEN Turbo blowers with air bearings provide clear advantages compared to blowers with magnetic bearings

    Aeration tanks for wastewater treatment must be continuously provided with large air volumes. Turbo blowers offer here energy-efficient solutions. AERZEN has developed an amazingly simple method for the fast-rotating Turbo blowers - air bearings. The construction of AERZEN Turbo blowers is quite simple: A blade wheel, aerodynamically optimised and located directly on the motor shaft, rotates in ...

  • 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 ...

  • Towards advanced aeration modelling: from blower to bubbles to bulk

    Aeration is an essential component of aerobic biological wastewater treatment and is the largest energy consumer at most water resource recovery facilities. Most modelling studies neglect the inherent complexity of the aeration systems used. Typically, the blowers, air piping, and diffusers are not modelled in detail, completely mixed reactors in a series are used to represent plug-flow ...

  • 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 ...
