Aqua MixAir®

Aeration Systems

The Aqua MixAir® system provides separate mixing with the AquaDDM® Direct Drive Mixer and an aeration source such as the Aqua-Jet® surface aerator or Aqua-Aerobic diffused aeration. The system has the capability to cyclically operate aeration and mixing to promote anoxic/aerobic and anaerobic environments with low energy consumption.


    Utilizes the AquaDDM® Direct Drive Mixer with Aqua-Aerobic supplied surface mechanical aerators or diffused aeration


    Manual or automatic control of aeration system


    Simplified basin layouts


    Full range of aeration control without compromising mixing


    Greater control of dissolved oxygen (D.O) in mixing limited systems


    Reduced power requirements


    Improves sludge settling


    Greater choice of reactor size and configurations


    Simplifies layout of distribution system


    Retrofit in mixing limited aeration systems including:
    - Extended aeration
    - Aerobic digestion
    - Equalization
    - Aerated lagoons


    Anoxic processes


    Oxidation ditches


    Variable load, activated sludge systems


    Diurnal flows, less than design conditions


    Batch reactor processes

Featured Story

Taneytown's New Plant Serves the Community's Needs for 20 Years

In the late 1990s, Taneytown WWTP found itself in need of an upgraded treatment system due to community growth and an aging infrastructure. The original activated sludge system could no longer meet the plant’s treatment requirements and was subject to solids washout during high flows and freezing problems in the winter months.
