COMPLETE NITRIFICATION/ DENITRIFICATION
The Fluidyne Jet MCR™ offers significant advantages compared to a similar system with surface aerators. The greatest process advantage is that our mixing pumps draw motive liquids (fully nitrified mixed liquor) from the inner channel and pump it back out to the outer channel at a rate that is approximately 3.0 times the design flow rate. This feature insures virtually complete denitrification. Surface aerated systems have no internal recycle and rely on simultaneous nitrification in the outer channel.
Independent control of oxygen transfer and mixing
Constant level operation. The level does not have to be varied to control DO. Automatic DO control is much simpler
Deeper basins save space. Requires only 65% of the space required for basins with an operating SWD of twelve feet
Deeper basins increase overall efficiency. Delivers over 4.00 lbs/O2/BHp/hr at design conditions
Subsurface aeration eliminates mist and spray. Walkways and handrails stay clean. Odors and airborne VOCs are reduced
Thermal Conservation. Less surface area and subsurface aeration reduce heat loss during winter operation.
NO in-basin mechanical components
Low maintenance. SIMPLE five minute back flushing operation is the only required maintenance
No shafts to break or expensive gear drives to service. The ONLY mechanical equipment is standard pumps and blowers
Long life. A jet aeration system has a life of at least twenty-five years.
