OX DISC AERATORS REPLACE BRUSH ROTORS
OX™ DISC AERATORS REPLACE BRUSH ROTORS
Reduce total lifecycle costs
When brush rotors in oxidation ditch applications approach their useful life, a prudent upgrade option is to replace them with Evoqua's OX™ Disc Aerator. Existing tanks can be used, and disc aerators allow for improved mixing efficiency, lower energy use, simpler operation, and less maintenance. The non-metallic OX disc aerator s do not deteriorate or corrode like carbon steel brush rotors, the expected life of the system is at least 20 years. In contrast, brush rotors typically last an average of only five to ten years.
OX Disc Aerators can:
Deliver additional aeration capacity to handle increased influent loading
Eliminate dead zones
Eliminate splashing that clogs mechnical components
Keep equipment cleaner to lengthen service life
Provide biological nutrient removal with existing tanks in series operation
Reduce energy costs by up to 40 percent in series operation
Offer stormflow management capabilities in series operation
Eliminate risk of flooding bearings during high-flow events
At Evoqua, we have more than 40 years of expertise in both brush rotors and disc aerators. Upgrading your existing brush rotors or replacing with OX disc aerators can add years of life to your system while reducing operating costs. Evoqua is the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for Passavant Mammoth brush rotors. We also pioneered the disc aerator in the 1970's.
