Wastewater, sewage and sludge treatment systems
Fine bubble aeration wastewater treatment systems
Floating Fine Bubble Aeration (FFBA) is the revolutionary new energy efficient system developed by Mapal Green Energy for treating wastewater, sewage and sludge. It is suitable for use by public water utilities and in a range of industries including pulp and paper, farming, food processing, leachate ponds and in general manufacturing where waste water disposal is an issue.
Mapal’s floating fine bubble aeration solves the problem of water oxygenation by marrying the strengths of surface aeration technology – easy to install and accessible for maintenance - with the efficiency which is derived from sub surface fine bubble aeration systems. With no moving parts generating friction and driving high energy consumption, a key benefit for users of Mapal Green Energy’s floating fine bubble aeration system is its dramatically reduced energy bill.
Using a surface mounted design of blowers and floating pipes, not only is energy consumption reduced, but installation and maintenance is dramatically simplified. The system does not require a tank to be drained, nor does it need to be attached to a concrete floor. Aerators are automatically adjustable to water depth and because they float, are always level, thus delivering an even flow of oxygen within the reactor.
Wet and live installation is the norm, which makes for a very fast changeover of plant and a minimal downtime. The units are modular and can be added to or taken away from quickly and easily
The technology can be purchased or hired and due to its flexibility, is increasingly being used as part of an emergency pollution response strategy.
