SSI Fine Bubble and Coarse Bubble Diffusers

  1. 1. Presented by: Innovative Aeration Tom Frankel Systems, Systems since 1995 Director *Reduce Fouling *Reduce Maintenance *Reduce Cleaning Frequency *Reduce Replacement Cycle *Reduce Permit Violations *Reduce Cost *Best Warranty, Guaranteed Let’s get started…. 5/11/2009 1
  2. 2. DID YOU KNOW….? 90% of failures of a membrane diffused aeration system are caused by failed membranes? 5/11/2009 2
  3. 3. DID YOU KNOW….? In most cases, the cost of replacing membranes in a tank is higher than the cost of those membranes, when you consider hidden costs? STEADILY DECLINING LABOR & CLEANING OUT OF SERVICE PERFORMANCE = ENERGY $$ = NO INCOME!! 5/11/2009 3
  4. 4. DID YOU KNOW….? EPDM is a very durable material, but it is susceptible to fouling, which may include permanent swelling, shrinking, or crust? Calcium Calcium Carbonate Sulfate Dairy Products Animal Fat (lime) (gypsum) Petroleum Alcohol Vegetable Oils 5/11/2009 4
  5. 5. DID YOU KNOW….? Plastic gas cans are made of polyethylene, which is not recommended for gasoline or diesel service. Lab bottles that store aggressive solvents are also made of polyethylene which is not polyethylene, recommended for those solvents. 5/11/2009 5
  6. 6. DID YOU KNOW….? The first PTFE coated frying pan was developed in France by TEFAL in 1954? 5/11/2009 6
  7. 7. DID YOU KNOW….? SSI has patents and patents pending on PTFE coated membrane diffusers, and on fluorinated membrane diffusers. Those diffusers have a track record in service since late 2004, and have outlasted plain EPDM membranes in aggressive applications by a 10:1 margin margin. 5/11/2009 7
  8. 8. DID YOU KNOW….? Test T t report #84395 d t d A il 30 t dated April 30, 2009 proves that SSI’s patent-pending surface fluorination reduces plasticizer loss in an aggressive hot acetone solution compared to standard EPDM l ti dt t d d membranes by 25%. Phoenix 91st Ave is retrofitting 2 basins in i 2009 with fEPDM f ith from SSI SSI. New e Od Old O de Older Fossil 5/11/2009 8 Not with fEPDM!!!
  9. 9. DID YOU KNOW….? In your contract with SSI, you are in the unique position to negotiate extended warranties with SSI, because of our technology. 5/11/2009 9
  10. 10. DID YOU KNOW….? Not all EPDM is created equal SSI uses Compression equal. Molding and 700% elongation material. Most competitors are using injection molding and 500% elongation material, to save cost. 5/11/2009 10

  15. 15. PTFE MEMBRANES – Failure Mode? Not Yet We observe that a biofilm layer does form on PTFE Membranes, though it takes a long time to form, and when it Does, Does even in aggressive environments, it can be removed environments With a fingertip. The scale does not affect performance and Does not enter the slits. See below… 5/11/2009 15
  16. 16. Why PTFE??? – Don’t let this happen to you! 5/11/2009 16
  17. 17. PTFE FINE BUBBLE DIFFUSER MEMBRANES SSI’s PTFE ( Polytetrafluoroetyhylene) layered EPDM disc and tube diffuser membranes combine the reliability of EPDM with outstanding anti fouling resistance of PTFE PTFE. Benefits of PTFE layer are: • Resistance to fouling and calcium scaling • Extended life • Reduces cleaning 6-10 times compared to EPDM • Outstanding chemical resistance • Outstanding resistance to fats oils and greases fats, • Outstanding resistance to hydrocarbons, fuels, and solvents “PTFE IS THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO FINE BUBBLE AERATION SYSTEMS” Dave Redmon, Eng. , g 5/11/2009 17
  18. 18. SSI IS A TECHNOLOGY COMPANY 5/11/2009 18
  19. 19. SSI COMPRESSION MOLDS MOST MEMBRANES •SSI’s EPDM compound is specially formulated for wastewater applications providing: •Even specific gravity, thickness, and tear resistance gravity thickness • Greater resistance to elongation and tearing (multidirectional tear resistance) • Resistant to material property changes. • High modulus for elasticity. • Proper taper to reduce unit stress. • High oxygen transfer efficiency. • Extended service life 5/11/2009 19

  46. 46. SYSTEMS “We are extremely pleased with our latest purchase from you. Our wasted biomass is now kept fresh and free from release of NH3 and Ortho-P during storage. We will be looking at replacing all membranes in the Ford Road Aeration Basins in 2007 2007. I would like to get a price from you soon. Have a happy holidays! 5/11/2009 Jason Tincu, Xenia WWTP Supervisor” 46
  47. 47. SYSTEMS “After evaluation, EA decided to proceed with SSI's 12-inch diameter fine bubble diffusers. Due to the size and efficiencies of the SSI diffuser, the number of diffusers required for the project is significantly less than the other Manufacturers. We highly recommend SSI and we would like to work with them again on our next project.” 5/11/2009 Chuck Place, P.G., EA Engineering Inc. 47
  48. 48. SYSTEMS “SSI designs complete aeration systems including calculations of SOTE, temperature, with drawings and all complimentary information for aerobic reactors. Their technical help is the best in the business. “ Marcelo Mascheroni Lay, Sanitary Engineer, Ecoplan Uruguay (former SanitaireTM 5/11/2009 48
  49. 49. SYSTEMS “In 2003 our company El Concorde purchased 6000 sets AFT1000 diffuser from SSI to be used on a wastewater treatment project in Iraq under the Program Oil for Food with the UN. I evaluated a number of American and European companies and finally selected SSI due to a robust product and good communication.” Ghassan Ayyubi – El Concorde Ltd, Jordan 5/11/2009 49

  51. 51. SYSTEMS “We have had the Stamford disc diffusers installed in our two 450,000 gallon sludge holding basins for nearly five years and we have never had a problem with them. We also see adequate mixing and desired performance. The basins are inspected periodically and we have not had to h d t replace any of th modules to d t ” l f the d l t date.” Jerry Basham - Chief Operator North WWTP, Henderson Water Utility, Henderson, KY 5/11/2009 51
  52. 52. SYSTEMS “I called Pierre Filion today. He is just back from vacation. He said that he checked his aeration system this morning and y g everything seems OK. The bubbles are still nice, so he does not expect problems for sometimes. The Teflon membranes were installed Dec. 04. One month earlier, he had installed (other brand) EPDM membranes in the other reactor (Nov. 1) and the bubble size is not so good and he is expecting problems soon.” Gaetan Desjardins, Premier Tech Environment – QC, Canada 5/11/2009 52
  53. 53. SYSTEMS “We came across the SSI diffusers and first tried them in the summer of 2005. It was probably the best decision we have made in our wastewater treatment plant since it started processing water. Not only can we afford to replace the old diffusers, the new SSI seem to be more durable than the old ones and don't require as much maintenance. We also see that they do not plug up or scale up as bad as the old diffusers. Our current blowers could not be happier as well as myself. We have been thoroughly satisfied with the SSI diffusers from DGJ Gongol and Associates and would recommend these diffusers to everyone. Thank you for such a good and reliable product. You have definitely made life easier for all of us 5/11/2009 here at SCA Tissue. “, Paul Johnson – SCA Tissue, Menasha, WI 53
  54. 54. SYSTEMS “We hereby confirm that TEFLON membranes have been working since beginning of February without clogging problems. Before we had to clean the (NoponTM) EPDM membranes every 3-4 weeks!” Ringkøbing Renseanlæg, Denmark Gunnar Larsen 5/11/2009 54
  55. 55. SYSTEMS “The diffusers AFD-350 are working very well in Podolsk. At present we are installation some diffusers in Protvino and Redkino. We have received ≈ 2 thousand pieces in Solnechnogorsk. “ Robert Agronanonik, BIFAR, Russia 5/11/2009 55
  56. 56. SYSTEMS “Pumpteknik have delivered 800 pcs of SSI membranes to Flygt SanitaireTM 9” discs. Today we see a much better oxygen transfer as before surely caused by the better materiel and perforation. We can warmly recommend this product!” - Nilks Bak Andersen, Teknisk Chef, A/S Saeby Fiske-Industri Denmark 5/11/2009 56

In most of these projects we have received not only the sales assistance but also technical support in the designing when it was required. All the projects we have installed the 9", 12" and tubular SSI diffusers operate successfully complying the parameters they were designed for, will no operational and quality problems in diffusers and membranes” 5/11/2009 63 Andres Silva, Proton USA Corp., Miami, FL USA
  64. 64. SSI vs Nopon TM 5/11/2009 64
  65. 65. Dear Tom. The plant has 3 parallel tanks with first 2,100 pcs Nopon TM 215 then later 2,100 Nopon TM on top of them. The costumer has had problems with leak between the old and new one. Nopon TM have changed the system several times so the plant decided to use AFD 350 with saddl for pipe ø90. They are very surprised the SSI’s disc is as efficient as seen on the Graph from 06-11-2004. Visual you can see by photos 921 that Nopon TM in one place have pop up and photo 923 at sidewall you see no bubbles. On photo 924 you have a beautiful view of AFD 350’s efficiency and on photo 922 you can see the overwhelming amount of bubbles. After having installed 700 pcs AFD 350, we shall deliver 700 more this year and 700 next year.

  66. 66. The following graph depicts the performance of two tanks in Denmark. Tank 1 has Nopon TM 300 size diffusers. In Tank 2, SSI replaced the Nopon TM membranes with SSI 12” retrofit membranes. The two tanks ran side by side. Notice how the valve to the air supply in the SSI tank is mostly closed, and the valve to the air supply in the y , pp y Nopon TM tank is mostly open, yet the DO is higher in the SSI tank, in spite of receiving much less air. 5/11/2009 66
  67. 67. Ad1) Hi Tom. Here the first result of changing from Nopon TM 215 to AFD 350/PTFE. Saving ca 16%. But we have to adjust the plant concerning the pressure, so I’ll be back. I would like to end about 25%.
