Lagoons & Wastewater Basins:
The Reliant Water Technologies Lagoon Master Water-Moving Aeration System is not just an aerator, but it is a water-mover with the ability to deliver large amounts of dissolved oxygen (DO) using a minimum of energy. When compared to standard paddlewheel, vortex, hose diffusion, spray (fountain), or aspirating aerators, the Lagoon Master is more efficient, less costly to operate, and requires less maintenance. The Lagoon Master is a two-phase system which utilizes only two 2 HP (1.5 kW) regenerative blowers. Phase 1, using one of the blowers, is the de-stratification phase, continuously pushing every drop of water within 2 to 5 acres (1-2 hectares) (depending upon water depth) of a pond or lagoon. Phase 2 is a second 2 HP (1.5 kW) blower that can run continuously, or be initiated manually or automatically, to provide DO at a rate that is comparable to other aerators designed for shallow water ponds or lagoons.
The use of this new aeration system will (1) provide better overall water quality through continual oxidation and the elimination of odors, (2) eliminate the zero-oxygen deadzone on the lagoon bottom, (3) provide constantly moving water to assist in sludge organic breakdown, and (4) provide dissolved oxygen at a controlled rate in order to save energy and oxidize waste gases. One 8’ (2.4 meter) Lagoon Master will move over 9 million gallons (34,100 cu meters) of water in a 24 hour period.
• Only 4 HP (3 kW) at maximum energy use
• No propellers or shafts to foul
• No belts or gearboxes to break or require maintenance
• Non-corrosive materials of construction (Anodized aluminum, HDPE, Stainless Steel)
The Sludge Activating Aerator by Reliant Water Technologies mimics a secondary clarifier in a lagoon or pond. By using moving water to continuously roll along the bottom of the lagoon, the sludge and all bottom sediments, become activated – eventually, completing the digestion of all of the organic matter in the bottom sediments. This process eventually performs the following:
Eliminates the organic solids in the sludge completely through microbial digestion.
Provides enough dissolved oxygen to keep the entire microbial population alive and thriving.
Oxidizes, through continual vertical mixing, all of the trapped waste gases (nitrogen, ammonia and H2S) in the water column and sludge, thereby cleaning the water.
Eliminates all odors in the body of water.
Eliminates stratification and seasonal turnover throughout the entire body of water.
Reduces the sludge buildup to the point that pond/lagoon dredging is set back indefinitely.
Reliant Water’s Wet Well Wizard is a cost effective and reliable answer to this odor and FOG problem. The Wizard is a unique patent pending aeration tube that is placed into the center of the wet well to aggressively agitate and mix the wet well water. This constant agitation with highly forced air provides oxygen to the water, activating the growth of aerobic microbes in the
With a in every pump lift station in the collection system, thewater within that system becomes “pre-treated” for the wastewater plant that will be receiving it. Such a pretreatment not only will eliminate wastewater odor entering the plant but that water will contain a very large population of aerobic micro-organisms that will have effectively provided the wastewater operation with partially pre-treated water.
The Wet Well Wizard is designed in such a manner that it will not cause the cavitation of pumps and it will not become clogged with floating well debris.The only maintenance is cleaning an air filter monthly
Hydrogen sulfide is naturally generated by Sulfate Reducing Bacteria in an anaerobic environment. Depending on the chemical nature of the sewer line, a force main can become a sulfate-rich anaerobic environment. Therefore, the sulfide problem is the result of chemistry and anaerobic microbiology.
The chemical-free Gener-Ox™ system works on a very simple principle: change the environment, change the biology, change the results.
Most chemical approaches to the sulfide problem attempt to sterilize the force main using either chlorine or other oxidants or strong alkalis. A newer popular approach is to feed the force main with a nitrate salt which the anaerobes preferentially reduce to odor-free nitrogen.
IER's Gener-Ox™ system is the only approach that addresses the root cause of the problem. Gener-Ox™ inhibits the formation of hydrogen sulfide in the first place by making the force main aerobic, rendering all anaerobes and sulfate-reducing bacteria inactive or nonexistant.
In order to maintain aerobic conditions in a force main, the DO level at the start of a force main must often be higher than the saturation DO level in the wet well.
