In an effort to obtain consensus standards for the evaluation of aeration devices in both clean and dirty water, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) established a Subcommittee on Oxygen Transfer Standards in January 1977. This report presents the outcome of this review process and provides recommended procedures for testing of oxygen transfer devices in both clean and dirty water. It is prepared as seven interdependent reports including (1) modelling and data interpretation, (2) unsteady state clean water tests, (3) effects of wastewater characteristics and temperature on oxygen transfer, (4) oxygen transfer measurements in respiring systems, (5) geometry and mixing considerations, (6) gas flow measurement, and (7) power measurement.
