Activated sludge process
The Oxygen supply of the activated sludge basin is one of the main factors determining the effluent quality and purification performance of a biological sewage treatment plant. Usually a standard aeration system supplies the activated sludge basin with dissolved Oxygen. However, if the waste water loads to the sewage treatment plant increase and exceed the original design values, a lack of dissolved Oxygen (DOC) may occur.

BIOX-Capacity Increase of WWTP
Proper dosing of oxygen to manage the biology
With the injection of pure Oxygen, a significant increase in the efficiency of existing, overloaded sewage treatment plants is achieved quickly and economically. It ensures compliance to consent levels and makes cost-intensive extension of the activated sludge basins superfluous. Pure Oxygen may be used to replace the existing aeration as well as an additional asset. The performance of biological treatment steps is raised up to 200%. Therefore pure Oxygen is especially suitable for high-load basins, selector basins and moving bed reactors.
The advantages at a glance:
Quick and easy performance increase of the activated sludge process
Reliable cutting of peak loads
Ensures proper DOC for Nitrification
Low investment costs
rapid implementation within 2 days
temporary measure for emergency aeration
Economical and flexible
