By offering flow and load equalization, our simplified equalization system, Ideal EQ™ is critical to any industrial wastewater treatment plant.
Production wastewater coming in from the industrial facility varies in pH, total suspended solids (TSS), fats, oils and greases (FOG), and other contaminants.
The Ideal EQ includes Ideal Mixing™ and Ideal pH™ to provide more consistent flows and homogeneous loads to downstream treatment equipment.
When it comes to equalization mixing and aeration, we have several options that ensure proper performance. Depending on the wastewater type, we will engineer the correct solution.
The slot injector is a method that combines tank water with blower air and then recycles the water through fiberglass manifolds inside the tank. Depending on the specific application, the system can also mix without air for ultimate flexibility.
Aspirated jet mixing relies on the Venturi effect to draw atmospheric air into the tank to recycle the water. It then reintroduces the aerated stream into the tank at a high velocity. This is a highly cost-effective solution that can easily retrofit existing operations.
Mechanical mixers keep mixing simple, however, it does not have the ability to provide aeration. In most Ideal EQ applications, aeration is critical to help prevent fugitive odors.
Our Ideal pH system enhances the natural buffering capacity of industrial wastewater. A discrete, compact and flexible system, it facilitates safe, efficient operation and maintenance.
