The importance of Aeration

Aeration can account for up to 75% of your plant’s overall energy expenditure during the wastewater treatment process. Therefore we believe it is essential that you get the most efficient and reliable aeration systems in place to save you time, cut costs, and enable a more sustainable future.

Despite the fact that water comprises more than 70% of Earth, less than 1% of this water is fresh and accessible. As population growth increases and the focus on environmentally sensitive disposal intensifies, the demand for water treatment grows.
