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.

A Sustainable World

At Howden, we play a vital role in creating a sustainable environment by producing cleaner water around the world through our smart aeration technology. A well-designed aeration system has a direct impact on the wastewater treatment; reducing the length the process takes, increasing energy efficiency, and cutting costs.

With the wastewater industry relying purely on performance Howden's range of high-efficiency blowers and compressors perform the critical functions required to manage effluent from municipal sewage systems and from many industrial processes recovering, reusing, and preparing for safe disposal.


Leading the way in smart aeration

We have combined our exceptional product knowledge and expertise with a unique digital solution, to provide our customers with an invaluable insight into the operational performance of their equipment.

With the application of our Digital Twin model, we are able to analyse the current operation against the equipment’s best efficiency point. This allows us to provide corrective actions on how to best operate the equipment, enabling performance optimisation which in turn will increase the overall efficiency and sustainability of the wastewater treatment plant.

Smart aeration

Enhancing wastewater solutions with the combination of Uptime, offering a unique and innovative digital solution for the performance optimisation of your equipment.

Products: Uptime


Grit chamber aeration

Removing grit from wastewater is an initial treatment stage and aerated chambers can be used to separate out and settle the grit at the bottom of the chamber. Air is supplied to the chamber by blowers.

Products: EasyAir Rotary, Roots Rotary Lobe Blower


Diffused aeration

Biological wastewater treatment using diffused aeration requires the injection of air into the wastewater to oxidize organics and aid the bio-degradation of pollutants. Howden has a wide range of blower and compressor technologies available for every capacity, flow rate and efficiency requirement.

Products: EasyAir Rotary, Roots Rotary Lobe Blower, EasyAir Turbo, KA Series


Membrane Air Scouring/Backwash

Membrane BioReactor (MBR) systems are used in advanced wastewater treatment plant. The membranes are scoured by air supplied by blowers to reduce fouling.

Products: EasyAir Rotary, Roots Rotary Lobe Blower


Sludge Drying

Sewage sludge can be combusted on-site, shipped elsewhere for combustion or used as agricultural fertilizer. The larger plants and those in metropolitan areas opt for on-site incineration. Fluid bed combustors utilize blowers.

Products: Roots Rotary Lobe Blower
