Power


Power plants consume the most freshwater in their processes, primarily for cooling towers and boilers.  Power plants also generate wastewater from their operations, the complexity and treatability depends on the fuel sources used to generate electricity.  Aqua-Aerobic Systems has the equipment and engineering capability to optimize the production of clean water as well as the treatment of wastewater.



Industrial Power

Coal Ash Pond/Coal Pile Runoff


Coal fines from coal pile runoff and coal ash from the Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) process create difficult-to-treat waste streams.  Aqua-Aerobic Systems has project management experience to deal with these applications using our OptiFiber®, pile cloth media filters.  Depending upon the flows and solids loadings, we have a range of mechanical and media types to achieve the desired effluent.

AquaDisk® Filters Reduce TSS And NTU For Power Plant Process Water

Read Success Story

The AquaDisk filters remove total suspended solids (TSS) and reduce turbidity (NTU) to protect the heat exchangers from clogging, in turn, reducing energy consumption, or in severe cases, preventing plant shutdown.
