Case Studies

Blower Improves Energy Efficiency

Albertville, Ala., is a small city on Sand Mountain, a 26-sq-mile plateau in the northeast corner of the state. The Municipal Utilities Board (MUB) of Albertville operates the MUB wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), an 11.5-mgd facility that serves approximately 20,000 residential and industrial customers in Albertville and the surrounding areas.

The Problem

Teutonic Turbo

A biological municipal wastewater treatment plant with a considerably fluctuating discharge quantity can only perform its function with utmost energy efficiency and reliability if the process air consumption of the aeration basin can be adjusted continuously and is fully automated in order to deal with widely fluctuating load quantities. This can be achieved with the use of a speed-controlled Aerzen turbo blower.
