large order in India
The waste water treatment plant Anjana (India) relies on about 1800 AEROSTRIP diffusers.
We were able to realize another large project together with our local partner OVIVO India. The waste water treatment plant Anjana with a daily inflow of ~80.000m³, will use approx. 1800 high efficient AEROSTRIP diffusers in their process.
the AEROSTRIP perforation technique enables that the pores are completly closed by stopped airflow although the membran remains inflated. Each single pore is like a check-valve.
This slow motion video shows this perforation technique in operation.

Energy Self-sufficiency in Wastewater Treatment - WwTP Geiselbullach shows the way
On July the 10th 2014, the German wastewater treatment plant of Geislbullach hosted a press event dedicated to energy self-sufficiency, organized by AmperVerband in cooperation with Aquaconsult Anlagenbau GmbH. The press was present, showing a huge interest to the subject.
The managing director, Mr DI (FH) Kopmann, explained in an impressive way why the plant of Geiselbullach was selected. An almost 100% energy sufficiency was achieved through optimizing of sub-processes (especially through using of the efficient fine bubble diffusers manufactured by Aquaconsult Anlagenbau GmbH), also through combined use of latest technologies and operation procedures as “mixing with air”. “We are proud to cover our energy demands for internal services with self-generated energy. We are glad to nominate Aquaconsult among our cooperation partners in aeration technology. Their AEROSTRIP and their consultancy services made possible a significant part of our success” – quoting Mr. DI(FH) Kopmann.
Following presentation was held by Aquaconsult’s sales manager, Mr. DI Gerald Glaninger, who emphasized the benefits of the selected aeration system. “Combining our product AEROSTRIP with the experience of decades of my colleagues from sales team was leading straight to the extraordinary results from the plant of Geiselbullach” – said Mr. Glaninger, while thanking AmperVerband for the excellent cooperation.
The closure of the presentation was held by Dr. Loderer (Sales Engineer at Aquaconsult) in his speech “Mixing with Air”. The present audience was presented the concept, the consequent advantages of this operational procedure, and his related personal thoughts. “I am hoping, that more Geiselbullach will show up soon, proving the ideas about energy self-sustainability in wastewater treatment plants; we will also see how small optimization steps like using an efficient aeration system may lead to tremendous results.” – added Dr. Loderer in his closing sentence.
Subsequently the audience attended a guided tour through the plant organized by the facility manager Mr. Christian Kriegner, and they could see for themselves how excellency was implemented in order to achieve the objectives listed during presentation. Mr Kriegner pointed out: “we could achieve such high objectives only through best cooperation between us and Aquaconsult in the aeration segment”. The day ended with lunch and exciting dialogue between attendees
Aquaconsult Anlagenbau GmbH would like to express its thankful thoughts to its traditional partner AmperVerband for the long term cooperation, for the occasion to explain the media the advantages of an efficient aeration system in connection with the energy self-sufficiency

Success Story: WwTP Vuippens in Switzerland
The current capacity of the Vuippens wastewater treatment plant in western Switzerland is to be increased from 45,500 to 80,000 p.e. Two system modifications were planned for this purpose and these were put out to tender in two lots. The first consisted of the construction of an additional high load stage upstream of the main biological stage and the second, the replacement of the existing activated sludge stage.
WABAG Switzerland was able to offer optimum solutions for both lots and demonstrate the appropriate references and thus won the confidence of the client, the local AIS association. WABAG decided to use the innovative FLUOPUR system for the high load stage and the existing activated sludge system was replaced by a new SBR reactor. This cleans the wastewater to a very high degree and permits its safe return to the small River Sionge.
WABAG is to be responsible for the planning, installation and commissioning of the electro-mechanical systems. Installation is due to commence during this summer with start-up to follow at the beginning of 2015.
Thank you, IFAT 2014 Munich! Thank you all for seeing us!
IFAT 2014 is history, and we wish to thank to all those we could meet and greet at our booth, looking for better fine bubble diffusers, looking for efficiency and long lifespan!
Welcome in the family of AEROSTRIP, we are all winners!
YouTube Footage about flexing (procedure for self cleaning)
Our US-Partner OVIVO USA published a Video about flexing (blow-down) in YouTube http://youtu.be/StZ6WB4aKJc
How to perform a membrane maintenance cycle (blow down cycle)
- Shut down blowers.
- Open relief valve in the air pipe to release air till a pressure is reached which is slightly (10 to 20 mbar) lower than the pressure which corresponds to the immersion depth. (e.g. immersion depth 4,2 m, rec-ommended air pressure 390 – 420 mbar.) As soon this pressure is reached, close air relief valve.
- Leave membrane 2 minutes deflated.
- Switch on blowers.
This procedure may be repeated immediately or after a while. Automation is a must, especially with industrial waste waters. This procedure will be performed 2 to 8 times a day for the continuous aeration processes. The time intervals should depend on the pressure loss of AEROSTRIP diffusers (the higher the pressure, the shortest the interval). If aeration is performed on intermittent basis, the pressure release procedure shall run at the beginning of denitrification phase - with turned-off blowers .
Did you know?
We designed the AEROSTRIP diffuser with a polyurethane membrane with less than one-third the thickness but with three times the strength of conventional EPDM membranes.
Unlike EPDM membranes, polyurethane membranes have no softeners or plasticizers to leach into wastewater over time (the reason EPDM membranes require frequent replacement). AEROSTRIP diffuser membranes are proven to last 15+ years without replacement.
Ovivo Spain commissions AEROSTRIP ® fine bubble diffuser installation in Spain
Ovivo Spain has commissioned an aeration system featuring high-performance AEROSTRIP ® fine bubble diffusers at a wastewater treatment plant in Spain. The system is installed in one of two existing biological treatment lines, which will allow to measure performance against expectations. The system comprises 132 diffusers with polyurethane membranes and substitutes the previous conventional aeration system made up of 1410 disc diffusers and EPDM membranes.
“We anticipate our client should realize an energy saving in the order of ~30%, in comparison to the disc diffusers, replaced with the AEROSTRIP diffuser”, says Pedro Morate – General Manager, Ovivo Spain.
