Tips to reduce power consumption in Sewage treatment plants

 

Avoid pumps and design by gravity       

 

Most of the treatment plants designed with conventional treatment technology have multiple tanks and the people compelled to put pumps at every tank to pump the water from one tank to another. It does not stop with pumps alone, you need blowers, sludge pumps, membranes which may vary according to half a dozen technologies used by different solution providers. The increase in pieces of equipment, not only increases the initial investment but also increases the operational cost, also does not guarantee the performance of the plant. All this ends up making a big hole in the customer’s purse.  There is an opportunity to reduce the operational cost by eliminating the pumping of sewage by designing the plant to operate with gravity flow so that we can reduce the power consumption.

 

 

Evaluate Equipment’s regularly

 

Regular evaluation and checkup or changing aging equipment can be a very good solution to save money. In most places, the precautionary measure is an unknown word. You should look into equipment which are getting old or if the need of any upgradation they can save in power consumption. Sometimes oversized equipment and inefficient operations can also result in more power consumption. Blowers are essential for the aeration of untreated wastewater. Up-gradation from a coarse bubble or mechanical aeration to a fine-pore system will lower the energy costs for wastewater aeration by at least 25%.

 

 

Process up-gradation which utilizes microbial consortium effectively

 

OxyO is dedicated to providing innovative solutions to making wastewater treatment simple, reliable, easy, and reduced operational cost. Our principle of universal design has addressed all the issues of treatment in a single unit and without pumps. We use the process that helps to sustain the microbial activity and achieve the desired results in the destruction of biodegradable organics. Our technology for wastewater treatment plants is simple. It works with the least equipment and without maintenance.
