CLEAN-FLO Wastewater Aeration System Characteristics
To accomplish these great improvements over existing wastewater aeration systems, it had to operate continuously without failure.
For maximum efficiency, the diffused aeration needed to not stir up bottom muck and not mix phosphorus, nitrogen and other pollutants from the muck into the water column; wastewater aeration must not create turbulence. It must create a laminar flow of the water from the bottom to the surface without mixing bottom sediments in with the wastewater lagoon water.
To duplicate nature, which kept lakes clean for thousands of years, the CLEAN-FLO wastewater aeration system had to be properly engineered to duplicate spring and fall turnover, or inversion, of lakes several times a day. The reason for this is because our wastewater aerator brings water to the surface where it spreads out in a thin sheet 0.1 inches thick. Oxygen transfer from the atmosphere to the wastewater is then much higher than it is in standard clean water tanks, which have a very low surface area.
To bind phosphorus and nitrogen to the bottom sediment instead of re-suspending it into the water column, the wastewater aeration system had to be engineered to fully oxygenate the water from the surface to bottom. It also had to oxygenate the bottom so bacteria and insects could feed on and biodegrade organic sediments and so anaerobic bacteria would not produce odors and toxic gases.
CLEAN-FLO aeration eliminates odor and increases dissolved oxygen in 50 million gallon heifer lagoon.
