Aeration & Blowers White Papers And Case Studies

  1. Fluence Aerators Improve Lagoon Aeration at Recycled Paper Plant

    Pronal, a recycled paper plant, produces craft paper. The plant produces an average flow of 14,000 m3/day (3.7 MGD) of wastewater with high contents of Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and Total Suspended Solids (TSS).

  2. Submersible Pumps Help With Flood Control

    Sims Bayou begins near Missouri City, TX, and meanders northeast until it reaches Buffalo Bayou.

  3. Switch To Hybrid Blowers Offsets 68% Electrical Rate Increase For WWTP

    The Old Orchard Beach Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) serves the town of Old Orchard Beach, Maine, a coastal resort community where the population swells from 9,000 year-round residents to 75,000 in late June through early August, when seasonal residents and day trippers descend for the peak summer months.

  4. A More Reliable, More Efficient Aerator – Tomball, TX WWTP

    ​In 2013, operators of the Tomball, Texas Wastewater Treatment Plant were facing increasing maintenance issues with three brush aerators operating in the plant's two-channel oxidation ditch. The aerator failures were threatening to compromise effluent quality and environmental compliance. Tomball needed replacements.​

  5. Why ASME PTC10 Is Not Sufficient To Define Testing Of A High Speed Turbo Blower

    The technology to produce low pressure air, an energy intensive ingredient in the wastewater process, has made significant steps forward in recent years. Unfortunately, the specifications for testing these new sophisticated air producers have not kept pace.

  6. Solving Aeration Challenges Across The Globe

    The US Army Corps of Engineers chose Fluence when they needed expert technology to treat wastewater at the largest Afghan National Army military post in the Nangahar Province of Afghanistan.

  7. Packaged Wastewater Treatment Plant Meets Tricky Challenge

    Packaged Wastewater Treatment Plants offer many advantages, flexibility notwithstanding. One plant in particular, located in Georgia, needed to be upgraded to handle the increased flows from a growing city and to address new effluent discharge regulations.  The tight plant site offered minimal opportunity for routine expansion of the packaged wastewater plant volumes, hence special designs were needed. Learn how this 200,000 GPD system is thriving.

  8. IFAS System Doubles Ammonia Removal Capacity

    In August of 2007, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality issued seasonal ammonia discharge limits for the Coldwater Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP), which included a daily maximum ammonia concentration of 2.0 mg/L between the months of May and November.

  9. Albertville WWTP Uses Biogas Blower To Replace Natural Gas To Fuel Boilers

    As part of an ongoing effort to improve efficiency and lifecycle costs across all of its projects, a Municipal Utilities Board in Albertville, Ala., set out to upgrade solids handling at the WWTP and pursue Class A biosolids certification, a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) designation for dewatered and heated sludge that contains low levels of pathogens.

  10. How To Revolutionize The Water Industry In 5 Simple Steps

    Turning wastewater into drinking water. Fueling cars with tap water. Installing “waterless” toilets in airport restrooms. Each and every day, people around the globe are trying to transform the water industry in many ways. Here are five steps to help you revolutionize the water industry.
