How Does an Oxidation Ditch Work?

Oxidation ditches significantly streamline wastewater process flows. The process involves the continuous circulation of wastewater in a basin, allowing for prolonged interaction with aerating mechanisms. This extended aeration process promotes the growth of beneficial microorganisms that break down pollutants in the wastewater. The Triton 2.0 Process Aerator, a key component of our Tri-Oval Oxidation Ditch System, offers extremely efficient fine-bubble aeration alongside independent mixing control, ensuring efficient nutrient removal.

Modernizing an Older Technology

Since their inception in the Netherlands in the 1950s, oxidation ditches have been a cornerstone in wastewater treatment. Originally designed to meet the growing environmental concerns and regulatory standards of that era, these systems have been integral in managing domestic and industrial wastewater. However, the original aeration methods, often still the default consideration when building these systems, now often fall short in terms of efficiency and environmental impact. 

Enter the Tri-oval solution and the Triton 2.0 – a modern solution that breathes new life into these traditional systems. As a perfect retrofit option, the Triton 2.0 replaces outdated aeration technology with cutting-edge innovation. It offers enhanced process control, superior energy efficiency, and improved reliability. This makes the Triton 2.0 an ideal choice for anyone looking to modernize their existing oxidation ditch infrastructure. By upgrading to Triton 2.0, facilities can not only meet current environmental standards more effectively but also reduce operational costs and improve overall treatment performance, ensuring their systems are fit for the future.
