Aeration and Mixing Systems
Optimizes Oxygen Transfer and Mixing Characteristics
Providing optimal oxygen transfer and mixing characteristics with reliable backflow prevention, Tideflex Aeration and Mixing Systems are ideal for use in municipal and industrial aeration applications. While conventional fine and coarse bubble diffusers typically clog with sludge when airflow is interrupted due to blower shutdown or power failure, Tideflex Aeration Diffuser Valves maximize mixing while totally isolating the wastewater from the air manifold and related equipment and instrumentation. By allowing routine shut downs and eliminating the need to run blowers or compressors around the clock to prevent clogging of the diffusers and manifold, Tideflex Aeration and Mixing Systems provide substantial savings in energy and operational costs.
The principle of the Aeration Diffuser Valve operation is simple. Positive differential air pressure opens the Diffuser Valve, allowing airflow. Reverse pressure on the outside of the Diffuser Valve seals the bill, preventing backflow of solids or liquids. The patented elastomeric design closes drop-tight, even sealing around entrapped solids, eliminating any concern of clogging commonly associated with conventional air diffuser systems as well as the extensive costs required to maintain, repair and clean them. Tideflex Technologies combines years of experience with superior products to provide the most cost-effective and efficient systems for industrial and municipal applications.
