In the spring of 2020, tube air diffusers by Ekoton were installed and put into operation at the Sandaoyuan municipal waste water treatment plants in Chengdu, China. As of today, this type of equipment successfully operates on more than 60 waste water treatment plants in China.
This delivery was carried out as a part of the second stage of new treatment facilities with a capacity of 12,500 m3/day. More and more water treatment services around the world are choosing Ekoton tube aerators for biological treatment of both municipal and industrial waste water. The main reasons for this choice are high equipment efficiency, reliability, low operating costs and fast mounting.
Biological waste water treatment in aerotanks is one of the most important treatment stages. Faulty operation of aerators can lead to sludge decay and, as a result, to odour nuisance. The second hazard which water treatment services can encounter when choosing the wrong equipment is high operating costs. The aeration system consumes 50-90% of the total capacity of the treatment plants, and equipment that operates erratically only increases energy consumption without improving the cleaning efficiency.
The unique design of the Ekoton Tube Air Diffusers provides a high level of oxygen saturation of waste water due to fine bubble aeration (with a bubble diameter of 2-3 mm). Ekoton tube aerators do not clog, and therefore do not require cleaning, they are resistant to aggressive media and mechanical damage. The experience of our clients shows that the service life of the equipment can reach 8 to 12 years.
To date, EKOTON aerators successfully operate at water treatment services not only in China but also in the EU, USA, Israel and the CIS countries.
