Aeration System - Diffuser System

(optional)


    1). Arrangement of diffuser system along width of each tank

    Select TYPE B-1 Swing-Fuser Aeration & disc fuser (orifice 15/32") along width of each tanks

    Total No. of disc fuser per tank = 144,  6 disc fuser / aerator tube

    Select 3 rows double side Swing-Fuser aerators, aerator tube No. / row = 6,   aerator tube No. / each side of row = 3

    Select 2 rows single side Swing-Fuser aerators, disc fuser No. / row = 3

    Longitudinal space between center of row = L / space No. = 62 / 4 = 15.5 ft

    Width space between center of row = W / space No. = 31 / 4 = 7.75 ft

    2). Aerator's free air rate and head loss

    Designed Air Volume per Tank(ft3/day) No. of Diffuser

    (ft3 air/min)

    For Single Side Aerator For Double Side Aerator

    Air of double side aerators = 74 2 = 148 CFM

    Head loss of aerators: from CFM-PSI-# chart

    Gauge pressure on aerator 15 / 33.9 = 0.44 Atm = 6.5 Psi

    Single aerator head loss from chart (use7 Psi) Hsingle = 0.56 in H2O

    Double aerator head loss from chart (use7 Psi) Hdouble = 3 in H2O = 0.1 Psi

    3). Disc fuser free air rate and head

    Air rate of disc fuser = Air of single aerator tube / No. of disc fuser per aerator tube

                                    = 74 / 6 = 12.3 CFM

    From chart CFM-Orifice-Submergence-H

    Hdisc fuser = 8.2 in H2O = 0.3 Psi
