Aerofloat’s sewage treatment design for the mining industry is simple, cost-effective, durable and easy to transport.
Aerofloat’s sewage treatment plant (STP) design applies its patented Aerofloat aeration system to create a simple and effective solution.
Aerofloat offers a range of technologies to account for variations in location and local discharge standards. Upfront, aerated balance tanks are often used in mining camps due to usually high peak flows experienced in these camps. For many applications, Aerofloat uses its proprietary sequencing batch reactor (SBR) technology: single tank designs are suitable for smaller populations, multiple SBR tanks are used for larger populations. In some applications hybrid moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) / SBR technology can be used, which is a series process with the MBBR reactor proceeding the SBR reactor.
Aerofloat typically uses lightweight, high density polyethylene (HDPE) tanks rather than stainless steel or painted carbon steel tanks, creating a durable, low-cost alternative.
For remote locations, most of the mechanical components arrive in a container fully assembled, pre-wired and ready to go. The lightweight HDPE tanks are delivered to site – installation normally simply requires connecting the pipework. Aerofloat’s design also allows for easy relocation to alternative sites if the development has a short life expectancy.
Aerofloat’s Managing Director, Ray Anderson, founded and managed a previous business that designed and installed over 500 sewage treatment plants around Australia. This expertise, coupled with Aerofloat’s latest designs and technology, provides unique, reliable and effective options for sewage treatment.
