Sizing Dispersed Gas Units

It can be shown mathematically that an efficient design must have a high gas induction rate, a small diameter induced gas bubble, and relatively large mixing zone. The design of the nozzle or rotor, and of the internal baffles, is … Continue reading

Dispersed Gas Units

In dispersed gas units gas bubbles are dispersed in the total stream either by the use of an inductor device or by a vortex set up by mechanical rotors. Figure 7-14 shows a schematic cross section of a unit that … Continue reading

Dissolved Gas Units

Dissolved gas designs take a portion of the treated water effluent and saturate the water with natural gas in a contactor. The higher the pressure the more gas can be dissolved in the water. Most units are designed for a … Continue reading
