  • 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 ...

  • Do You Need a Microfiltration or Ultrafiltration Membrane System for Your Plant?

    Determining whether or not an industrial plant needs a microfiltration (MF) and/or ultrafiltration (UF) membrane system isn’t always as straightforward as it seems. While these systems are not essential for every industrial process, when thoughtfully implemented within an intake, process, or waste stream, they can go a long way in improving a facility’s efficiency and/or cutting ...

  • The biological basis of wastewater treatment

    Introduction This booklet was written to fulfil the need for a simple explanation of the biological processes that underpin wastewater treatment. It attempts to show how the bacteria involved deal with the organic carbon in the sewage. Remarkably, there are just 3 major processes involved, and these mirror exactly the 3 major processes at work in the plant viz: biodegradation, oxygen ...

  • Wastewater treatment for a municipality

    Description of the plant At first, wastewater is pre-treated by a combinated sand and fat trap before further treatment is affected by a special screen. The accruing particles are collected in anti-septic plastic bags to avoid any personal contact because of hygienic reasons. Based on the high varying hydraulic amount of wastewater, an aerated mixing and balancing reactor is ...

  • Peach Processing Wastewater Treatment

    A major fresh pack operation of peaches and nectarines needed a screening system to remove the labels and peach fuzz from their wash water before it was pumped from the pond for irrigation use. Flow to the pond is a steady flow of 50 gpm, rising to 600 gpm during periodic draining of the peach coolers and washing systems. The water is a combination of wash water, labels and fuzz from the fruit, ...
