A laboratory-scale mechanical aeration system was used to examine the variation in oxygen transfer rates into water as a function of water temperature (0 to 40C). The relative aeration efficiency decreases with increasing elevation, water temperature, and dissolved oxygen concentration. Equations were developed relating saturation dissolved oxygen concentration to temperature and atmospheric pressure to elevation and air temperature. Both air and oxygen were used under identical conditions to determine the effect (if any) of dissolved oxygen concentration on the rate of oxygen demand removal. The use of oxygen in an enclosed contact-stabilization activated sludge wastewater treatment plant suitable for high altitudes and latitudes is shown.
