Aertec has developed a series of custom retrofit equipment and installation options during the past several years to address unique customer needs. The solutions are tailored for each aeration upgrade whether done in the dry, or when the aeration system cannot be taken off line, done in situ without interruption of the treatment process operation.
Retrofits may be installed in wet or dry conditions. Diver assistance is used in systems that have sludge depth issues, broken equipment to be removed, and where equipment that is to be left in place in close proximity to the new equipment.
Typically, AerGrid and AerMax diffusers and AerGrid or AerMax on AerTas laterals are used to provide new, more efficient and mechanically stronger equipment to replace or augment existing aeration systems.
Where possible, reusable components of existing systems are retained and/or modified to reduce overall project cost. Also, existing systems can be supplemented with new Aertec products to increase oxygen transfer capacity and mixing, and to improve overall oxygen transfer efficiency.
Whether you have diffused aeration or other types of aeration equipment, Aertec can boost oxygen transfer and improve mixing by redesigning the aeration system and installing more efficient AerGrid High Efficiency Coarse Bubble aeration equipment, or AerMax fine pore tube diffusers.
Our unique AerTas and AerFas wet installable aeration systems afford you the ability to replace existing aeration equipment without draining your tank or basin or removing the aeration basin from service.
Dry installations simplify the retrofit process and save even more capital dollars.
