Diffused Aeration Systems
Ecogent are the New Zealand market partners of Environmental Dynamics Inc (EDI)
the world’s leading providers of diffused aeration systems. EDI
has been designing and manufacturing diffusers since 1975 and has over 4000 diffuser
installations in over 75 countries.
Aeration is the heart of a biological wastewater
treatment system and will typically account for 50 to 80% of a treatment plants
running costs. Efficient aeration is the key to meeting design objectives and with
the right aeration technology and design treatment performance can be maximised
and operating costs minimised.
Through EDI, Ecogent has access
to a full line of products and systems and has the ability to deliver high value,
cost effective aeration solutions for even the most challenging wastewater applications.
Typical applications for EDI diffused aeration systems include:
- New activated sludge aeration
- Existing fine or coarse bubble diffuser upgrades
- Pond / Lagoon aeration
Consideration of the right combinations of diffuser type and material, diffuser
density and configuration and submergence for a particular biological process enables
oxygen and mixing requirements to be met and treatment objectives to be satisfied.
Thorough process design combined with an economic analysis allows capital costs
to be balanced with operational and maintenance costs to meet client objectives.
