Kaeser Compressors will be presenting a technical paper ‘Blower technologies and energy efficiency opportunities’ at the 42nd WIOA QLD Water Industry Operations Conference & Exhibition being held on 7 and 8 June 2017 in Crestmead. 

Aeration air is an indispensable part of biological wastewater treatment plant processes. Ensuring a dependable source of compressed air at all times is essential to ensure that there is no breakdown of the clarification process. 

Operating an energy efficient blower system is also very important, especially when you consider that the largest operating cost for a waste water treatment plant is energy, with the largest of all energy consumers being running blowers for aeration. 

With energy prices continuing to rise, understanding the compressed air demand of a system and selecting the right blower to meet these requirements is critical. Proper planning will also greatly impact the final reliability and energy efficiency of the system.

Jeff Coyle, the National Design and Engineering Manager at Kaeser Compressors Australia will be presenting a technical paper at this year’s WIOA QLD conference being held in Crestmead on 7 and 8 June. ‘Blower technologies and energy efficiency opportunities’ discusses the most commonly and widely used blower solutions, describing their unique strengths and ideal applications as well as the critical factors that should be considered when planning a blower system to ensure it is not only reliable but also energy efficient.
