Aeration of Sludge Tanks

Sludge tank aeration is a bacterial process that removes physical, chemical and biological contaminants from waste water, producing pure water and solid waste. Air or oxygen is pumped through the source waste water, stimulating the bacterial purification process.
The bacteria oxidize biological matter and remove phosphates, carbon dioxide, ammonia and nitrogen. Once the waste water has received sufficient treatment, the clarified liquid is transferred to settling tanks. The water extracted from these settling tanks usually undergoes further treatment before use. The separated solid waste may be sent for disposal or used as fuel to produce energy.

Mink claw compressors are ideally suited to sludge tank aeration applications.
