A leader in aeration technology. Aerator Solutions is a provider of top quality aerators and mixers for industrial, municipal and agricultural wastewater treatment operations. Known the world over for their history of effective technology, they believe it all begins with the aerator design.
Their original aerator, which is now known as the EcoJet™ aerator, was developed and introduced in 1963. Throughout the past fifty years, competitors have copied this technology, but have never duplicated or surpassed its effective productivity.
Recognized worldwide for service and expertise in wastewater treatment, Aerator Solutions is the sought-out resource for agricultural, industrial and municipal wastewater treatment equipment expertise. They assist in design, planning, and implementation of their products to meet your process requirements.
Advanced technology for aeration applications.
Aerator Solutions set out to improve on traditional aeration technologies that have been in place for more than a half-century. And, by looking at how oxygen is transferred in other industries, they applied the hyperbaric dome to wastewater aeration. With a true gas-to-liquid interface, the EcoDome™ hyperbaric aeration system substantially reduces energy consumption. Featuring a revolutionary gas-to-liquid exchange, the EcoDome™ aeration system is a completely new way of aerating wastewater, borrowing the same hyperbaric oxygenation principles used in health care. The system controls the environment in which the oxygen transfer takes place. The system degasses then re-gasses large volumes of wastewater in real time, very efficiently.
How it works.
- Large rotors with a proprietary orifice design rotate under a pressurized dome.
- The system degasses then re-gasses large volumes of wastewater in real time, very efficiently.
- Aeration and mixing happen simultaneously. No additional mixers are required.
- Due to the violent action of the rotors under the dome, organic build up is prevented for a self-cleaning system.
- With the enclosed dome, spray misting and odor is virtually eliminated.
- Robust and practically maintenance-free system.
- Versatile configuration: Inline, tethered or fixed.
A smarter mixing process.
- The horizontal plane of mixing allows for operation in very shallow and deep environments.
- Pumping high volumes of water with multiple rotors allows for mixing to take place concurrent to aeration.
- Horizontal mixing reduces the risk of disturbing the bottom of the basin, whether clay, earthen or lined.
- Mixing can occur without aeration for anoxic mixing applications.
What does this mean for you?
Reduced energy consumption: Drawing less that 15kW of power during normal operation, the EcoDome represents a significant reduction in energy consumption compared to conventional aeration technology.
Less sludge production and dredging: The combination of effective aeration and mixing has, in demonstrated cases, reduced sludge volume and enhanced effluent quality by adding greater levels of oxygen into the process.
Less spray, noise and odor: With the aeration and mixing process self-contained within the dome, both noise and odor are virtually eliminated. Spray and mist are also contained within the dome.
Less maintenance: The EcoDome system is plug and play. All the components are manufactured with the highest quality materials. The entire system is virtually maintenance free for optimum efficiencies.
Rugged, reliable design: Manufactured in the U.S., the EcoDome aerator is developed using in-house design, engineering and production with short lead times.
Technology Strengths,Weaknesses and Critical Indicators
- Primarily applicable to flush system after primary solids separation and within a region that has concerns regarding local odor emissions from long-term storage lagoons.
- Capital costs for the mechanical surface aerators and their platforms/electrical connections are moderate.
- Operating costs, even with limited aeration can be high due to high utility costs for continuous operation of energy intensive aerators.
- Well-researched, understood and engineered system with multiple vendor platforms available across industries, including manure treatment.
- Several types of aerators are available in the market that suit for dairy operations.
- Specification requirements of aeration equipment and its installation depends on farm size, manure characteristics, and odor mitigation goals of that dairy farm.
currently working with Aerator Solutions to understand their technology and to help them understand the best fit for their technology in the dairy industry.
