Aeration energy often accounts for the greatest consumption of electricity in a wastewater treatment plant.
Aeration equipment with poor efficiency accounts for the greatest waste of electricity in a wastewater treatment plant.
Inefficient aerators can commit end users to decades of excessive power consumption because often there is a reluctance to retire equipment whilst it remains serviceable.
Enormous power savings are achievable when modern, high-efficiency aeration technologies are introduced.
aerdisc is often three or four times more efficient than the outmoded equipment it replaces.
Oxygen transfer efficiency is measured in kgO2/kWh, so every percentage gain in efficiency equates to the same percentage reduction in electricity consumption.
Two recent posts describe energy savings of 72% at Waitaki DC and 68% at Central Otago DC. Even more remarkable is the dramatic increase in DO and overall plant performance, whilst achieving the energy savings.
