Energy Savings - Better Compliance
A good mixing strategy can have a big impact on your entire system.
Throughout the US there are tens of thousands of wastewater ponds with intense treatment for small cities and industries (e.g., the food processing industry), and perhaps just as many reactor basins in wastewater plants for large cities.
- Reduce short circuiting
- Increase detention time
- Improves BOD and TSS reduction
- Increase methane transfer from water column
- Better sludge digestion at the bottom
- Prolong time between dredging
- Minimize algae-related problems
- Reduce or eliminate nuisance odor issues
Learning Document: Mixing To Enhance Facultative Lagoon Treatment
SolarBee® & GridBee® floating wastewater mixers from Ixom Watercare can enhance or supplement your existing facultative lagoon system. Effective mixing often reduces effluent algae biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and total suspended solids (TSS) (to under 10 mg/l) and usually ammonia (N), phosphorus (P), and pH. Better mixing can also help solve problems involving overloading, odors, and sludge buildup.

In most cities, wastewater aeration uses more electricity than any other single power use in the city, and the aeration is significantly oversized due to the need for proper mixing of the water and oxygen. Learn more, watch the video below!
