DESIGN INFORMATION ON FINE PORE AERATION SYSTEMS

Citation:

U.S. EPA. DESIGN INFORMATION ON FINE PORE AERATION SYSTEMS. EPA/600/S-94/001, 1994.

Description:

Field studies were conducted over several years at municipal wastewater treatment plants employing line pore diffused aeration systems. These studies were designed to produce reliable information on the performance and operational requirements of fine pore devices under process conditions. The results of the studies provided critical input to a comprehensive treatise on the subject entitled "Design Manual-Fine Pore Aeration Systems." This document, prepared by the American Society of Civil Engineers' (ASCE) Oxygen Transfer Committee, was published in1989 and is available to the public. The above studies resulted in 16 separate contractor reports as part of a cooperative research agreement with ASCE. Abstracts of each contractor report are given here.
