Howden will supply three of its Turblex KA22SV-GL225 blowers, enabled with Howden Uptime and local control panels to LEM construction, a family owned Houston-based general contracting firm that specializes in the construction of water and wastewater pumpstations and treatment facilities. Originally constructed in the 1980s, Houston’s wastewater collection system moves wastewater, a byproduct of domestic, industrial, commercial, or agricultural activities, to the local treatment plant where it is treated and safely returned to bayous and lakes. As part of the City’s ongoing program for improvements and expansion, the plant will undergo upgrade work to continue to meet the needs of the citizens in its service area and increase the plant capacity and improve process reliability and efficiency.

Southeast Wastewater Treatment Plant required specific turbo compressors to correspond with its existing process control systems. We worked closely with the design engineers, customer and owner to provide a competitive solution for the new blowers at the plant.

The need to minimise energy consumption, whether for cost or environmental reasons has become a factor of enormous significance for many of our customers. Howden’s blowers, already characterised by low footprint and high flows, now have the added benefit of being Howden Uptime enabled, allowing us to monitor and recommend the most appropriate operational parameters to optimise performance and the efficiency of our customers’ aeration process. The high quality turbo compressor components ensure long-term reliability and minimum maintenance.
