Lift Stations

Lift stations are designed to convey raw sewage through the collection system to the wastewater treatment facility. Two key functions of the collection process are maintaining the suspension of solids and preventing the formation of grease caps in the wet-well.

A BioMix Compressed Gas Mixing System accomplishes these objectives, providing mixing in difficult geometries, breaking up and emulsifying grease, and minimizing in-tank maintenance.

Energy Efficiency Icon
Energy Efficiency
  • 50-60% or greater energy savings compared to mechanical mixing
  • Comparative energy savings increase with increased depth and solids concentration
Straightforward Operation Icon
Straightforward Operation
  • Non-clogging, self-cleaning equipment in wet well
  • No rotating or electrical components in wet well, lowering risk of trash/debris getting caught
  • Interlock mixing with pump operation to protect equipment while maintaining complete mixing
  • Maintain all equipment from above the wet well with minimal visual inspection
Process Optimization
  • Break the surface of the liquid with large bubbles to inhibit accumulation of fat, oil, and grease (FOG)
  • Re-entrain floatables to develop a homogenous mixture
  • Adjustable mixing parameters account for changing water levels and differences in substrate
Unparalleled Flexibility Icon
Unparalleled Flexibility
  • Communicate with SCADA network to enable/disable or operate mixing on a set schedule
  • Manual valve actuation allows service staff to manually agitate wet well
  • Arrange nozzles to mix multiple chambers with a shared compressor system
