IWE Bacaerator

Industrial Water Equipment Ltd, promoters of applied ecological biotechnology, have a further industry leading application product – The IWE-Bactaerator.

Sumps, wet wells and also pumping stations offer continuous issues to all of the ones accountable with controlling and looking after it, through cafes and food markets to water flow and drainage companies and also water corporations.

The issue most often experienced is a build-up regarding organic and natural solid waste materials inside the chamber (particularly fats, oils and also grease) which is a catalyst for problems for the actual pumps, stop the float switch from functioning, causing flooding in addition to costly repairs to exhausted pumps. In extreme conditions the actual build-up of fat within a holding chamber can lead to anaerobic circumstances which often may result in the development of ‘sulphonic acids’ that will wear away just about any apparatus or metallic objects they will come into exposure to. Other issues include things like odours, as well as septicity within the well and also the rising main.

These complaints aren’t just expensive to correct, but they can bring about considerable penalties being accessed on the offending companies as a consequence of destructive flooding and / or pungent aromas.

The IWE-Bactaerator is actually designed to protect against all of these conditions developing. As with every IWE system the IWE-Bactaerator is founded on sensible biological fundamentals which has been created to optimise the remedial results of bacterias within a precise situation.

The IWE-Bactaerator is developed by microbiologists in order to serve not just a unique bio-fluid along with a biological accelerant into the sump, but in addition to intensely aerate the actual elements in the chamber. This actually transforms the anaerobic sump holding chamber in to a aerobic bio-reactor. This existence within the holding chamber of bacterias, particular nutrient materials along with air supplies the perfect environments for the micro organism boost which break down the actual organic matter accumulating within the holding chamber.

The effects from the aeration delivers the additional plus side to ‘blowing-off’ any kind of unstable odour molecules therefore eliminating complications that sump might be experiencing regarding odours. This oxygenation furthermore means that all effluent pumped through the chamber is extremely oxygen rich and can consequently decrease problems with septicity. This product can be an alternative choice to costly oxygen discharge substances.

The unit alone is manufactured to operate 24/7 for approximately a ninety day period, after which it requires a pre-scheduled service check from IWE’s in house support engineers.

The IWE-Bactaerator continues to be on test through the entire UK throughout recent weeks with outstanding success. It’s indicated that cleansing as well as pump-out demands really are considerably decreased during times of operation, and therefore issues with fat as well as odours are virtually eradicated.
