We put energy efficiency first
The aeration system of an activated sludge treatment plant typically accounts for 50-75% of the energy required to operate the plant. Fine bubble diffused aeration systems are known to be the most sustainable, energy efficient systems available in the market today. When compared to mechanical aerators, high speed turbines, jet aeration or coarse bubble aeration, fine bubble wins the efficiency race hands down. Typical energy savings achieved by converting from one of these technologies to fine bubble will result in an aeration energy reduction of 50% or more.
High oxygen transfer efficiency is not only a function of the diffuser itself, but of the proper design and placement of the aeration system in the reactor basin.
