Wastewater treatment plants provide an invaluable service to communities. Plants are typically designed to service regions for 20 to 30 years. This poses many challenges for community leaders and plant designers, who not only have to foresee the future for the community, but also stay within a given budget. This inherently results in a plant larger than the current needs and leads to reduced operational efficiency.
At a typical plant, aeration accounts for nearly 60% of a plant's total energy costs. Of the aeration costs, blowers make the most significant contribution to the cost. This webinar will discuss strategies for designing an energy efficient and reliable blower system for a wastewater treatment plant. Special emphasis will be on package and system controls, package integration, evaluating power consumption and typical blower system design schemes.
