When it comes to wastewater aeration and treatment, different treatment plants should prioritize different goals and needs throughout the treatment process of wastewater. the aeration system choice that is right for your treatment plant depends on a few factors: tank or lagoon size, wastewater volume, composition of wastewater and oxygen requirements, plant location and climate, efficiency requirements, maintenance reduction goals, maintenance cost goals, capital cost goals and energy cost goals.
Treatment plants can satisfy a lot of these needs at the same time when you choose an effective and high-quality aeration system.
Diffused aeration systems
Aeration of wastewater forms an important part of the treatment process of wastewater. It mixes water with oxygen. This allows aerobic bacteria to digest the biosolid particles available in the water. Aeration of wastewater plays an important role in the activated sludge phase. It enables bacteria to feed on the organic matter until the bacteria settle out and forms sludge which later on recirculates along with the bacteria to enhance future organic matter breakdown within the wastewater.
Choosing diffused wastewater aeration equipment helps in the provision of important tools for this process. They help pump less concentrated amounts of air into the water to provide efficient aeration process.
Fine bubble diffusers
These diffusers are made of flexible membranes that have thousands of minuscule that produce bubble from one to three millimetre in diameter. These diffusers exist in three primary types: disc diffusers, tube diffusers, and needle perforated diffusers.
Benefits of diffused aeration systems
Choosing diffused wastewater aeration systems comes with several benefits. They ensure complete mixing from the bottom to the top, they are suitable for deeper tanks, and they have better efficiency and have a low environmental impact. They are also cheap to maintain, have a flexible design, easer blower management and are durable. Using diffused aeration systems ensures lower long-term costs.
