The Aqua CAM-D® is a performance proven aerator/mixer/decanter designed for use in Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) systems treating flows as low as a few thousand gallons per day up to 100,000 gallons per day. The unit is used successfully in a variety of municipal and industrial applications for both pretreatment and secondary wastewater treatment and is ideal for lower flows and cold climates.
The Aqua CAM-D effectively and independently aerates and mixes the SBR reactor while offering subsurface decanting of final effluent.
How It Works
High velocity movement of water through the air induction volute creates a pressure differential. Atmospheric air is drawn into the volute through the air intake port and forcefully discharged into the basin, enhancing oxygen transfer.
By opening the unit’s electrically operated air valve, the Aqua CAM-D is operated as an aerator. Closing the air valve enables the unit to operate as a mixer, allowing for anoxic mixing during selected phases of the SBR cycle.
Following the Settle phase of the SBR cycle, the submerged weir of the decanter opens and draws clear effluent from below the water surface.
The Aqua CAM-D is then ready to begin its next cycle of treatment. Operation of the unit is controlled by a microprocessor with automatic level overrides to control the system during conditions of greater than peak flow.
