A mobile commercial aeration testing plant for the optimization of energy use at sewage treatment works
An aerator test rig has been built which is capable of determining the oxygenation capacity of any aeration device in operation in a sewage treatment works. The test rig comprises a tanker vehicle for mixing the required chemicals and a mobile laboratory. The test rig has proved a technical success and been used for five tests during the demonstration phase of the project. The results of these tests show that energy savings of up to 15 % are possible with surface aerators but for diffused air plants savings of only a few percent are possible. The aerator test rig is therefore a commercially viable proposition only in countries which utilise treatment systems with surface aerators such as oxidation ditches.
