When a stream or small river runs through rocks and over logs, turbulence is created. Oxygen is captured in the water. Aerobic bacteria utilize this oxygen to thrive and grow, speeding up their digestive process, allowing the stream to purify itself. In the same way, a wastewater treatment system speeds up the aerobic bacteria process through repeated aeration of the effluent. Air is introduced in to the system by an air compressor. A diffuser turns the air into thousands of tiny bubbles. As these bubbles move through the wastewater, oxygen is captured and the purification process takes place just like the stream.*
The EZ Vent AirMix System is a wet well aeration system that helps reduce odor by preventing dormant or low usage stations from going septic. During long off-cycle periods, the station will become anaerobic and increase the amount of H2S and methane being produced. This not only increases the pungent odor (rotten-eggs) coming from the station, it also has the potential to become an explosive situation.
Our system is capable of receiving an interface signal from a set of dry contacts in the pump station control panel. During pump-off cycles, our system delivers air to the bubble diffuser system within the wet well and prevent the onset of an anerobic system. Optional delay timers can be set to only run during long off-cycles to save electricity.
Unlike other systems, ours have two compressors. They are selectable to either alternate at 50% of total cfm capacity or be run in duplex mode for 100% of total cfm capacity.
We use only Gast Motor Mounted Rotary Vane Compressors.
