Data arise from each production process. Vast amounts of data. Every second. Also at a wastewater treatment plant. Industry has started to convert these data into valuable information. The water industry will carry out the same revolutionary leap, keyword: Water 4.0. The average energy consumption of the organic treatment stage is between 60% and 80% of the operating costs of a wastewater treatment plant. Sustainable efficiency gains can only be realised in case all aeration mechanisms are visualised to the operator and, as a consequence, sufficient process transparency for the optimisation of resources is guaranteed. Water 4.0 in wastewater treatment plants has precisely this goal. How would it be if we could achieve it already today? By consequent digitisation and automation of biology aeration? The operators of a plant themselves provide the material for such an efficiency leap: the plant data. The next step: convert the data into clever information networks. AERwater, an innovative machine configuration and a progressive digital control system - these technical core components pave the way towards Water 4.0. Analytical basis for this is the innovative service AERaudit, a volume flow measurement of the real load requirement.
AERAUDIT – ANALYSIS OF THE CURRENT STATE
After the on-site measurement for the collection of the real load profiles, the AERaudit team will provide one or more possible solutions customised to the plant. These solutions result in various options from the machine technology of the AERZEN Performance3 portfolio Delta Hybrid, Delta Blower and Aerzen Turbo. This combination guarantees a performance, which reacts precisely and efficiency-oriented on the energy requirement of changing load profiles - from base loads to supply peaks. In addition, the newly acquired transparency grants comprehensive insight into the energy consumption and energy-saving potentials of the blower station. The AERwater modules include besides supporting measures for the realisation (rental units, commissioning, dismantling) and machine room optimisation (heat recovery, sound insulation concepts, room ventilation) the consulting service for the finance of investments through government aid.
AERSMART - APPROPRIATE SERVICE OF LOAD CHANGES
The load operation in organic wastewater treatment plants is subject to considerable fluctuations. The innovative machine control combination AERsmart achieves extraordinary increase in efficiency in combination with Performance3. It is the intelligent component, which distributes the oxygen requirement among the machinery in a mode through which low, medium and high loads can be processed most efficiently in the existing machinery. Performance scenarios and efficiencies are integrated in the algorithm of the control system. As a consequence, the installed machinery is operated very close to the theoretically highest efficiency level. Service Monitoring can also be replicated in this control system concept in the future. Service intervals will be displayed at any time and spare and wear parts or necessary service can be requested directly in the AERZEN service centre. Changing requirements and possible ageing effects of the aeration system can constantly be monitored. This creates unprecedented transparency over the entire life cycle and provides the possibility for targeted measures.
