Compressed Air in Wastewater Treatment

A review of various types of wastewater treatment methods and their use of compressed air to supply aeration and agitation. Emphasis examines methods of lowering the operating electric energy cost through innovative thinking and procedure.

This article reviews the basic operating principal of both the pulse jet (sock), and reverse flow (filter) dust collectors, and identifies common errors in effective storage, and proper installations along with their effect on compressed air systems.

It explains the use of rate of flow verses flow rate to establish proper calculations for install ion support. Several case studies are used to illustrate these issues and the required corrective action.
