Up to 70% of the energy consumption in a wastewater treatment plant is used for aeration. It is important to keep energy costs down in order to keep total operational costs low. Here at Chicago Pneumatic, we are committed in keeping your operational costs down. We do this by offering one a efficient and reliable machine.
It is increasingly important for efficient water management due to scarce availability of resources and the rising financial pressure. When counting on air supply to keep the bacteria alive during the treatment process, oil contamination is not desirable. This is the reason why we have oil-free solutions.
We have sales and service network around the world and service thousands of compressed air installations throughout the world. We ensure your equipment is always working at peak efficiency and downtime is limited.
As bacteria can't survive without oxygen, a continous oil-free supply is important for the quality of your wastewater treatment process. As the wastewater supply can vary during the day it is crucial for your installation to handle a variable air flow demand.
Backwashing refers to pumping water backwards through the filter. Oil-free air prevents filter media from becoming dirty and unusable. This is a form of preventive maintenance so that the filter media can be reused.
An aerated lagoon is a treatment pond that promotes biological oxidation of wastewaters. The diffused aeration system's efficiency has a direct impact on the quality and level of wastewater treatment that the lagoon achieves.
Activated sludge process
Air and micro-organisms are used to biologically oxidize organic pollutants, producing waste sludge containing oxidized materials. In order to avoid contamination to the water, the air in conventional activated sludge systems must be oil-free.
Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR)
SBRs are activated sludge processes designed to operate under non-steady state conditions. Operated in true batch mode with aeration and sludge settlement in the same basin. During the aeration phase, airflow is diffused in the tank. Fixed speed units ensure energy consumption is much lower to generate a competitive cost advantage.
Membrane bio-reactor (MBR) Systems
A version of the conventional activated sludge system where solid and liquid separation is done by a membrane (micro or ultrafiltration). Resulting in advantages for process control and product water quality but high energy consumption and intensive bio treatment process.
