Onsite Oxygen Generators for Wastewater Treatment

Advanced Gas Technologies provides state-of-the-art onsite oxygen generators for a wide range of industrial applications including wastewater treatment plants. By eliminating the need for transporting bulk liquid oxygen or transporting and handling heavy oxygen cylinders, this is a highly beneficial, convenient, and cost-effective oxygen supply solution that lowers the facility’s carbon foot print and increases overall safety standards.

The Role of Oxygen in Wastewater Treatment

Dissolved oxygen (DO) is a measure of the maximum concentration of oxygen that can be dissolved within wastewater with the purpose of sustaining living bacteria that cleanses the water to be re-entered into the main water system.

Dissolved oxygen plays an extremely significant role in wastewater treatment. There are many techniques used to dissolve oxygen in water, including:

  • Agitating the water and oxygen in an enclosed tank. This technique uses residual gases such as oxygen and carbon dioxide to remove dissolved nitrogen from the wastewater.
  • Releasing the oxygen as tiny bubbles at the bottom of an open tank. During this process oxygen is releases at a consistent rate to ensure it is mixed, without losing too much oxygen at the surface of the water.
  • Injecting oxygen under pressure into a side-stream of liquor. After the oxygen is injected, the side-stream is then returned to the main flow of water. This is a successful way to increase the oxygenation capacity of existing wastewater plants.
  • Injecting oxygen bubbles into a down-flowing stream of water. The purpose of this technique is so that upward movement is prevented.

The Benefits of Using Onsite Oxygen Generators for Wastewater Treatment

There are many benefits of using pure oxygen in wastewater treatment. Here are just a few advantages:

  • Reduces odor
  • Improves sludge settling
  • Increases loading (BOD/oxygen demand)
  • Reduces VOCs
  • Increases system operations
  • Improves the ability to meet peak demands/high production
  • Helps dissolve oxygen in pipelines
  • Avoids the need to significantly upgrade to the entire facility

Onsite oxygen generation enables wastewater treatment facilities to maximize their productivity, efficiency, and safety protocols all at a competitive and affordable rate.
