Hydro has claimed that the Hiox Activated Sludge Aeration System achieves 20 per cent improvement in sludge aeration performance, increasing treatment capacity and reducing energy demands.

The company has signed an exclusive licensing agreement with Parkson to make the high efficiency Hiox system available for the first time in the UK and Ireland.

Suitable for retrofitting and new installations, the Hiox has been developed to achieve much smaller bubble production and high floor-area coverage, increasing transfer efficiency by 20 per cent with a low oxygen flux rate, leading to reduced power demand.

Hiox’s 1mm diameter ultra-fine bubble production and high floor-area coverage result in 20 per cent or greater Standard Oxygen Transfer Efficiency (SOTE).

It delivers aeration efficiency and flexibility in high-rate and conventional nitrifying activated sludge processes, and ensures Membrane Bio Reactor systems operate at optimum rates.

Lower installation costs are achieved because each Hiox diffuser covers a large area, equivalent to 100 conventional 22cm disc diffusers.

The lightweight panels, clad in high-strength perforated polyurethane, enable a high floor area that reduces the need for associated pipework and ensures lower installation costs.

Maintenance requirements are reduced because the polyurethane membranes are self-cleansing, due to the slick membrane surface and the inherent flexing provided by the air flow.

Isolation valves enable the user to fine tune each panel depending on demand and plant needs.

The polyurethane membrane has a life of up to 12 years and can be replaced easily.
