Industrial Wastewater

Lagoons are an integral part of any industrial wastewater treatment system. No two industrial lagoons are the same—everything from influent wastewater source through treatment objectives must be taken into account.

Why lagoons?

Lagoons can offer significant advantages for industrial facilities.

A lagoon system provides equalization, dilution, and long holding times for industrial wastewater, which helps to compensate for irregular flows and loadings.

With high solids, mixing is critical

Biologicaltreatmentkinetics Dark 01
  • The level of mixing in your lagoon determines how well the metabolizing microorganisms come into contact with the food (BOD).
  • As a result, the level of mixing determines how much can be treated and how quickly.
  • The higher the mixing rate, the faster the treatment.

Mixing also reduces sludge

  • Multiple sludge reduction studies have been conducted with dual action coarse and fine bubble technology utilized by the Ares.
  • Simply by providing more mixing and oxygen to lagoons, sludge can be reduced in place.
  • Average level of sludge reduction is 45–50%.
  • This reduction in sludge volume reduces costs of sludge removal.

  • Aeration options available to lagoons vary in relative efficiency based on clean water testing.
  • Fine bubble is among the most efficient technologies, with coarse bubble and surface aeration being the least efficient.
  • However, lagoon fine bubble systems can struggle to properly mix the entire lagoon due to sheer volume of water.
  • Ares Aeration® combines fine bubble efficiency with robust mixing in one portable unit.

Membranes customized for your application

The performance of fine bubble aeration in industrial wastewater requires the membrane material be compatible with the wastewater constituents. A fine bubble system on paper may look very efficient, but if the diffusers are clogged and requiring frequent maintenance, real-world efficiency will be low.

At Triplepoint, we take a customized approach to membranes. We analyze a sample of your wastewater to determine the best membrane material for your application, even customizing the formulation for your specific wastewater. Alternatively, we offer medium bubble diffusers which, while slightly less efficient, are virtually maintenance free.
