Aeration Equipment

Triplepoint Environmental Ares Lagoon Aerator

The Ares Lagoon Aerator from Triplepoint Environmental combines aeration efficiency with turbulent mixing in a single, portable unit. It has a rugged, precision-machined solid hub with no seams to crack or leak. The coarse bubble static tube draws up to 7,800 gpm of water and liquefied organic matter from the floor to keep solids in suspension and prevent sludge accumulation. Diffuser Quick Connect ensures rapid, reliable installation of high-efficiency, self-cleaning fine-bubble diffusers. Independent testing demonstrates standard oxygen transfer of up to 2.4%/ft or 4 to 7 lb/O2 per horsepower hour, translating to up to 60% energy savings. Its high negative buoyancy ballast is 30% lighter out of the water for easier installation and maintenance. Attached to an onshore blower via laterals or individual air lines, it has no moving parts in the water and simply drops in from the surface for lagoon upgrades without downtime. 800-654-9307; 


Eurus Blower ZG blower package

The ZG blower package from Eurus Blower includes an internal sound-dampening feature lowering both sound and pulsations in blower packages with or without a sound enclosure. The package includes an integrated silencer, base frame, inlet filter/silencer with automatic belt tensioning and vibration isolators. Other components include a motor, drive, valves, flex connections and controls that are provided site specific and interchangeable.

Anue Water Technologies Phantom

The Phantom system from Anue Water Technologies provides point source odor elimination by infusing oxygen and ozone into recycled wastewater to react with and remove hydrogen sulfide and mercaptans from collections system lift stations. It eliminates chemical feed systems, as well as ongoing corrosion and maintenance issues associated with vapor phase hydrogen sulfide. It has a small footprint and quiet operation (less than 60 dB) while providing an ideal solution for high traffic areas in neighborhood locations. Programming features allow the operator to vary the frequency and duration of the planned operational cycle each day. Rate with each duty cycle to address the varying odor levels that naturally occur at high and low flow periods in the collections system each day. These programming options match the odor control treatment to the problem, which reduces operational and maintenance expenses while achieving maximum performance. 760-727-2683;

BioMicrobics BioSTORM stormwater treatment system

Easy-to-install, preengineered BioSTORM stormwater treatment systems from BioMicrobics can handle flows from 0.5 to 10 cubic feet per second and effectively filter and capture more than 90% of common pollutants such as trash, oils, sediment and other suspended solids that would otherwise end up in sewer overflows, waterways or the receiving environment. Used for primary and secondary applications, the offline, two-phase design consists of a StormTEE deflector screen to physically separate trash and large debris, and a fixed-film media that acts to separate liquids from solids and oil from water. Both treatment components can be used together to form a complete system or used separately for different sustainable site applications. The system allows for design flexibility and mounts easily in precast tanks with minimal maintenance. 800-753-3278;

Enviro-Care SAVI GVS Multirake Perforated Plate Screen

The SAVI GVS Multirake Perforated Plate Screen from Enviro-Care is a unique multirake design where the bars have been replaced by a stainless steel perforated plate to achieve higher debris capture. Multiple wipers remove the debris from the perforated plate and transport the screened material to discharge. Independent testing has proven that perforated plate screens have higher capture rates, which can be as high as 85% depending on design. It can be mounted in traditional channels at 75 degrees, or at 90 degrees for deep, narrow channels and wet wells. The low-maintenance design makes it a suitable choice for remote locations. 815-636-8306;

ScreencO Systems Mega Screen 800 

The Mega Screen 800 septic receiving station from ScreencO Systems includes 51 square feet of screening area, fed by a 6- or 8-inch inlet with dual-fan spreaders that deflect waste down onto the screen, making the front screen almost self-cleaning. Complete vac tank clean-out is available with the optional side and front splash sheeting. It processes up to 1,000 gpm of wet well or septic waste with an 8-inch cam outlet fitting. The Dual Screen Design is nonmechanical and uses gravity to separate trash from the waste stream. The standard unit features all-aluminum construction with stainless steel, 3/8-inch-gapped bar screens on opposing angles and meets the Ecology 503 Regulations for septic screening. A bolt-on chute assembly allows trash to exit in either direction, and built-in forklift skids make the unit portable, allowing for setup virtually anywhere. 208-790-8770;

JDV Equipment Nozzle Mix System

The Nozzle Mix System from JDV Equipment is a dual-zone mixing technology that provides uniform mixing patterns that produce even distribution and a stable environment. It can help optimize solids suspension and contact to promote efficiency in a wide range of applications. The system is designed with pumps installed outside the tanks to facilitate ease of maintenance. The pumps are typically chopper pumps or pumps incorporating in-line grinders that prevent fibrous materials from accumulating and causing plugging problems. The application dictates which type(s) of the many varied pump options can be used. The high-velocity nozzles are mounted inside the tank and are oriented to discharge in a flow pattern that completely mixes the tank contents. 973-366-6556;

Park Process VortaFlo

The VortaFlo static mixer from Park Process combines two mixing nozzles of different sizes to create turbulence and induce mixing. The addition of the injection quill allows chemicals or polymer to be injected in the mixing zone past the turbulence-creating nozzle prior to passing through the mixing nozzle. In the case of polymer flocculating biosolids, the turbulence nozzle causes the biosolids to roll in the mixing chamber so the polymer has maximum contact with biosolids particles prior to passing through the mixing nozzle, where flocculation is promoted. It is available in sizes ranging from a 1-inch inlet/outlet and 2-inch mixing chamber to a 12-inch inlet/outlet and 20-inch mixing chamber. 855-511-7275;

Vaughan Turbo-S Mixer

SWAN Analytical USA AMI Phosphate Analyzer

The SWAN Analytical USA AMI Phosphate Analyzer enables the reliable monitoring of critical phosphate levels. Analog/digital outputs provide real-time feedback for system control. Built-in surveillance functions generate alarms if measurements are not valid, such as missing flow, empty reagents, valve and photometer functionality. To ensure proper corrosion control in the distribution system, ensure proper feed control at the water treatment plant and reduce operating expenses, proper monitoring is required. 847-229-1290;

Sequencing Batch Reactor

Evoqua Water Technologies OMNIFLO SBR MAX

The OMNIFLO SBR MAX system with Jet Tech technology from Evoqua Water Technologies combines the benefits of a true-batch SBR with those of a continuous fill batch reactor process to treat wastewater influent flows to over five times design. The system optimizes hydraulic handling during storm flows, reduces equipment sizing and cost, and can trim energy costs over 15%. At low flow rates, the system operates in the True-Batch mode, and during peak flow events, the system automatically switches to operating as the GoFlo Continuous Fill Batch Reactor to dissipate peak flows and slash hydraulic overflow rates. It allows for the treatment of storm flows while maintaining excellent effluent quality. Quiescent settling is preserved at all flow rates up to storm flow. Influent velocity dissipation prevents sludge disturbance and short-circuiting. There is no need for additional EQ basins or oversized reactor basins. Simple automated controls make necessary adjustments easy.
