We have, working in conjunction with a number of large UK water companies garnered a very in depth understanding of the chemistry, biology, and physics of the wastewater treatment process.

During our investigations we will routinely measure Phosphate (PO4), Sulphate (SO4), Ammonia (NH4), Nitrate (NO4), Nitrite (NO3), and DO levels throughout the aeration tanks. This allows us to see whether the aeration process is running energy efficiently and performing the required functions.

By tweaking certain parameters it is possible to make the process consume its own by-products, rather than oxygen supplied by the blowers, this saves large amounts of energy. Further process changes can be introduced to eliminate unwanted chemical inputs such as Phosphorus and Nitrogen that will cause eutrophication in any downstream receiving waterways if not kept in check.

As well as closely investigating the biological/chemical side of the process, we measure the air consumption using our own calibrated flowmeters, power is also measured to allow us to generate specific energy efficiencies for the process.

When all this information is brought together, out wealth of experience allows us to recommend future action for optimisation.

Please view our case studies for more insight into what we can achieve.
