Wastewater Aeration Ametek Rotron DFS Regenerative Blowers


Why do wastewater plants/facilities need aeration?

Regenerative blowers (also referred to as ring compressors, inline blowers, or side channel blowers) are key pieces of equipment in the wastewater treatment process.

An important step of the wastewater treatment process is the aerobic biodegradation of organic gasses and compounds found in human waste. Atmospheric air is forced into the bottom of the tanks to promote bacteria growth which consumes the organic material found in the wastewater sludge.

Why Use Regenerative Blowers?

Our Ametek ROTRON regenerative blowers from Ametek DFS excel at moving large amounts of air at low pressures making them a great fit for aeration applications. Regenerative blowers require less maintenance than their positive-displacement blower or centrifugal blower counterparts. Our ROTRON Environmental (EN) and Chemical-Processing (CP) build options allow for safe operation in hazardous areas and promote blower longevity while dealing with corrosive or explosive gasses.

Our blowers are compatible with variable frequency drives (VFD’s) for 10:1 speed turndown to accommodate your system when the load increases or decreases. These blowers can be integrated into automated system designs for hands-free operation and increase efficiency.
