A well-designed in-floor resources system will have much lower OPEX than a typical POG system, which requires disconnection/removal/replacement with every batch. Some hybrid POG systems are left on the pad connected and buried in a woody layer while wheel loaders work over the top. In the authors’ experience, these systems have been prone to serious airflow distribution problems, plenum and pipe clogging, and pipe damage .
Making a well-informed selection of the how to spread fertilizer system and aeration floor better insures facility performance and long-term economic success. The high air velocities at the orifices of both the POG and in-floor spargers tend to pull in solids and cause plugging. The in-floor trench, on the other hand, shows minimal plugging when used for all negative application. This is due to the much lower air velocities through the orifices and the great number of orifices compared to a sparger floor. However, even an in-floor trench system using only negative aeration requires a well-structured BMP mix. Ease of operations and maintenance is the key determinant of the aeration floor operating expenses and reliability.
Whether it is aerating and mixing activated sludge basins, holding tanks, lagoons, or any other application, Parkson has a system that will provide effective and efficient performance. Let our experienced design team work with you to evaluate specific project needs and come up with a solution that best fits the application. We are a leading provider of equipment and solutions for water and wastewater treatment and branded around the core business of “Treating Water Right.” As increasingly challenging feedstocks are being diverted for composting in more populous areas, the need for more BMP-compliant composting processes is growing. The degree of BMP compliance is strongly determined by how well the design of the aeration system conforms to composting science.
