Aeration

Aeration for wastewater or water treatment refers to adding air or oxygen into a tank filled with water during the treatment process. It is particularly critical in wastewater applications where biological oxygen demand and chemical oxygen demand are measured and must stay within certain parameters to ensure the bacteria and bugs within the treatment process are healthy and treating the water appropriately.
