Aerzen USA is well known for blowers, compressors and vacuum pumps. However the key to success is in the company's business philosophy featuring collaboration with customers and following a "Triple Bottom Line" mindset that includes People, Planet & Prosperity.
The segment from WaterOnline Radio features interviews with John Franz, wastewater treatment plant manager for the City of Anacortes, WA, as well as Kevin Grant, a regional sales manager for Aerzen USA.
A biological municipal wastewater treatment plant with a considerably fluctuating discharge quantity can only perform its function with utmost energy efficiency and reliability if the process air consumption of the aeration basin can be adjusted continuously and is fully automated in order to deal with widely fluctuating load quantities. The example of the wastewater treatment plant shows how this is achieved with the use of a speed controlled Aerzen turbo blower.
Due to a new bearing and shaft design it is possible to increase the maximum admissible differential pressures to 25 bar in the process gas compressors VRa 236 H and VRa 336 H. Thus, with a multi-stage unit discharge pressures of up to 53 bar abs. can be reached.
Three main blower technologies are condsidered for waste water treatment applications:
Turbo Blowers. Positive Displacement Blowers. Hybrid Rotary Lobe Blowers. Which one should you choose for your wastewater treatement application? How much energy can you really save? Who can you trust to give you an objective answer? The best place to start is by downloading the Engineer's Mini-Guide To Blower Technology Selection.
The Aerzen iAir Remote Monitoring System (RMS) is a comprehensive monitor that can be attached to any blower or compressor to capture real-time activities and conditions. Based on industrial cellular technology, the RMS can function in any location with cellphone coverage for both indoor and outdoor applications. The system is easily installed and linked directly to your cell phone for up-to-the-minute condition reports and notifications. This allows for peace of mind and troubleshooting when you are not accessible to the equipment.
Shipping damage is the top number one issue followed by scheduling and only then cost. It is amazing how much freight gets damaged per year. This is particularly true for new blower packages that are shipped via LTL (Less than truckload) and so called common carrier. Although deemed the most cost effective – expediting and broker companies managed to push the cost down - it is the most difficult way to get machinery to a job site undamaged. Because freight must be consolidated in the carrier’s main hubs the equipment must be moved often. The mostly heavy and odd shaped freight with uneven weight distribution is moved with fork trucks that are significantly undersized. Making things worse is the fact that logistics is a business model where people make Cents on a Dollar and thus the time freight spends in non value adding moving around within terminals is kept to an absolute minimum causing fork lift drivers to drive fast and furious. Freight gets shoved around, stacked (when it should not be) and dropped rapidly (giving drop-shipment a different meaning). The result is that sound enclosures, castings, instrumentation etc gets damaged significantly before it even makes it to the final destination.
