Water & Wastewater Aeration Blower Solutions


Lone Star Blower and Compressor offers geared, gearless and multistage turbo technologies to best match each aeration application, environment, and Water Treatment Systems. Not only can Lone Star offer a blower to meet any specification, our energy efficient solutions will win any lifecycle analysis. Each process has different requirements and not one technology is always the best solution. We can complement our blowers with a complete aeration process control to offer an aeration system with total responsibility and maximum responsibility.

Lone Star offers solutions for basin aeration, air scouring, digester gas, filter backwash systems, grit chamber aeration, lagoon aeration, wastewater treatment, SBR- sequential batch reactor and MBR- membrane bioreactor systems.

Proper aeration and blower selection are two of the most critical steps to ensure a wastewater plant is successful with the most effective results. Aeration energy consumption typically consumes upwards to 60% and more in electrical Blowers create air flow (flow rate) with the system creating pressure (back pressure) using resistance to air flow.

Aeration Basin

In the aeration basin or Basin Aeration, the biomass consumes both oxygen and the organic pollution resulting in the net growth of microorganisms and the release of carbon dioxide. Wastewater Aeration, Controls & Energy Management is critical to biological treatment systems – using processes such as aerobic activated sludge systems, Sequencing Batch Reactors (SBR), nitrification-denitrification in a single basin, and Membrane Bioreactors (MBR).

Air scouring

Air Scouring involves the controlled injection of filtered compressed air into the main with the objective of forming continuous slugs of discrete air or water flow in the main.

Municipal Water Aeration

Aeration treatment consists of passing large amounts of air through water and then venting the air outside. The air causes the dissolved gases or volatile compounds to release from the water. The air and the contaminants released from the water are vented.

Digester Gas

Biogas is made up of methane and carbon dioxide, which are powerful greenhouse gases. Anaerobic digesters are designed to capture these gases so they do not escape to the atmosphere. In most cases, the feedstocks used in digesters would have released methane directly as they decomposed in lagoons or landfills.

Filter Backwash System

A backwashing filter (backwash filter) will collect any particles that flow through your water. The backwashing filter’s main components are a tank and the filtering media. … In essence, backwashing helps reverse the flow of water while increasing its velocity. This pushes the particles away from your clean water.

Grit Chamber Aeration

An aerated grit removal system removes particles by forcing water that has passed through bar screens into a grit chamber, which has air pumped into it.

Aerated Grit Chambers in Wastewater

In aerated grit chambers, grit is removed by causing the wastewater to flow in a spiral pattern. Air is introduced in the grit chamber along one side, causing a perpendicular spiral velocity pattern to flow through the tank. Heavier particles are accelerated and diverge from the streamlines, dropping to the bottom of the tank, while lighter organic particles are suspended and eventually carried out of the tank.

Wasterwater Treatment System

Wastewater treatment is a process used to remove contaminants from wastewater and convert it into an effluent that can be returned to the water cycle. Once returned to the water cycle, the effluent creates an acceptable impact on the environment or is reused for various purposes (called water reclamation).

Sequential Batch Reactor Wastewater

The sequencing batch reactor (SBR) is a fill-and- draw activated sludge system for wastewater treatment. In this system, wastewater is added to a single “batch” reactor, treated to remove undesirable components, and then discharged. Between 1914 and 1920, several full-scale fill-and- draw systems were in operation.

Membrane Bioreactor (MBR)

Membrane bioreactor (MBR) is the combination of a membrane process like microfiltration or ultrafiltration with a biological wastewater treatment process, the activated sludge process. It is now widely used for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment. Membrane Bioreactor processes can produce effluent (sewage that has been treated in a septic tank or sewage treatment plant) of satisfactory quality to be used for irrigation or discharged to waterways. The small footprint of the MBR Membrane Bioreactor is of an advantage over conventional wastewater treatment.

Blowers for Wastewater Treatment

Blowers are typically used to provide aeration in activated sludge plants and to promote aerobic digestion. They keep solids suspended in channels and in aeriated grit chambers, which is absolutely necessary for a proper treatment ecosystem.

Aeration Blower Function / Aeration Blowers Wastewater

While the purpose of the blower is to create additional air flow, the purpose of blower controls is to provide the correct air flow at any time, which in turn provides enhanced aeration efficiency.

Sewage Sludge Incineration

A sewage sludge incinerator (SSI) is an incinerator or combustion device that is used to burn dewatered sewage sludge. SSI units are typically located at wastewater treatment facilities are of one of two types: multiple hearth furnace (MHF) and fluidized bed (FBI) incinerator.

Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR)

Moving bed biofilm reactor, or MBBR, is a version of an activated sludge system, but is a much more compact method that can be scaled to fit any size plant. It is  biological treatment method.

Lagoon Aeration

An aerated lagoon (or aerated pond) is a simple wastewater treatment system consisting of a pond with artificial aeration to promote the biological oxidation of wastewaters.

Municipal Water Aeration Systems

Multistage Centrifugal Blowers for Aeration Systems
Wastewater Aeration Controls & Energy Management

Do you need to convert wastewater into an effluent so that it can be returned or reused to the water cycle without causing negative issues with the environment? If your answer is yes, then you are familiar with using compressed Air Blowers for Sewage Treatment or Air Blowers for Wastewater Treatment. Today, the two main types of wastewater treatment plants are the biological wastewater treatment plant and the physical treatment plant or chemical treatment plants.

Lone Star Blower and Compressor offers the total blower system to solve your water and wastewater aeration needs. Our Solutions offer a wide range of features and incorporated energy efficient improvements for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants that comply with the strictest Municipal Water Aeration operational requirements, meeting tough WWTP requirements and more, for a variety of applications. We will assist you from the design (blower sizing for wastewater treatment), layout (air blower piping designs), installation, and ongoing support and service.

Water and Wastewater Treatment applications include Aerated Grit Chamber, Aeration in Wastewater Treatment, Filter Backwash, Gas Boosters for Anaerobic Digestion, Membrane Bioreactors, Sequencing Batch Reactors, Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor, Activated Sludge Process, Diffused Aeration Process, Anaerobic Digestion, Membrane Scouring, Filter Backwashing, Aerobic Digester, Filter Backwash in Wastewater Treatment, Biogas Purification Equipment, Sequencing Batch Reactor in Wastewater Treatment, Multistage Centrifugal Blowers for Aeration or FGD Process, and Sewage Sludge Incineration. They all have a need for either a Multistage Centrifugal Blower, High-Speed Turbo Blowers, or Engineered or Packaged System, which are rotating machines able to increase the pressure for air or gasses or vacuum applications.

Multistage Centrifugal Blower (MSCB) – The multistage centrifugal blower (MSCB) is usually coupled directly with an induction motor driveshaft. The design principles for the MSCB are fairly simple: for more flow, increase the impeller diameter; for more pressure, increase the number of impellers (stages). Like all centrifugal machines, the impeller configuration has a large effect on the performance of a MSCB. Lone Star’s MSCB can have two to 16 stages and any number of impeller geometries to create the desired flow and pressure curve.
