Digester mixing

Philadelphia Mixing Solutions has introduced Momentous Flow™, the next generation mixing technology for anaerobic digestion. Compared to standard and egg digester technologies, this mixing system offers faster installation, lower operating and maintenance costs, and efficient generation of reusable energy from methane capture. The system uses a single Z/T = 3.0 axial impeller and no baffles in the upper part of the vessel to create centrifugal force. That force pushes membrane methane bubbles from anaerobic digestion to the center of rotation, where they quickly coalesce and escape from the liquid into a collection cap.

Biosolids drying

Eisenmann recently introduced the Pyrobustor™ system for the thermal treatment of biosolids from municipal water and wastewater treatment plants. The two-stage process uses pyrolysis in a proprietary rotary drum followed by a post combustion system. Biosolids, sludge and other organic waste is pyrolytically transformed into an energy-rich gas. The residual non-volatile ash encapsulates minerals and metals, if present, into a stable inert form that permits disposal in landfills as a non-hazardous material. Depending on local market needs, the ash can also be used as filler for road construction, concrete products or similar applications.

The Bi-Fuel™ generator from Generac® Power Systems produces a run time that is three times greater than that of a diesel-only generator. The generator operates on 30 percent diesel gas and 70 percent natural gas, which means minimal on-site diesel fuel storage and lower particulate and nitrogen oxide emissions, making this product ideal for wastewater treatment facilities. The generator’s engine also provides built-in redundancy, as the engine controls will automatically direct the unit.

Kaeser has expanded its Flow Controller line. The controllers can create more effective storage by accumulating compressed air in the receivers and delivering only the air needed for production. With two new models, the line now handles system capacities for 250 to 12,600 scfm. The controllers rapidly respond to fluctuating demand and actively maintain constant system pressure downstream. More stable air pressure helps eliminate artificial demand and substantially reduces air losses through leaks.
