Waste water blowers are often an underestimated type of equipment

Waste water blowers are often an underestimated type of equipment when it comes to the treatment of wastewater. As an engineer or plant operator, you know how important it is to choose the right waste water blowers for your application. Here is what you should consider as you narrow down your options:

  • The right type—Three types of waste water blowers exist: centrifugal, high-efficiency, and positive displacement lobe. The type of blower you choose should depend on your specific application. For example, for smaller applications, positive displacement lobe blowers are usually the right fit. Comparatively, applications that use high volumes of air usually require a high-efficiency blower.
  • Sizing the blower—To determine the right size blower, you need to consider variables that apply to your application. For instance, you should think about tank configurations, flow, the load, the depth of the tank, and the specific treatment of your application. If you are running a municipal facility, you should also consider the type of growth your community may experience as time passes.

Taking the time to select the proper blower is worth it because doing so can optimize your plant’s energy efficiency.
