EnviroMix

EnviroMix brings innovative mixing & process control technologies to a broad spectrum of municipal and industrial markets. Compared to other mixing methods, direct benefits of EnviroMix include enhanced mixing performance, reduced energy requirements, little or no maintenance, lower operating costs, and optional turn-key retrofit of large existing installations

BioMix

The BioMix system provides rigorous mixing for a variety of applications in the municipal and industrial markets. The system utilizes a patented product design with proven components to fire short bursts of compressed gas through nozzles attached to the bottom of a process tank. Electrical power requirements are very low, consisting of just the power required to run the gas source and the electronic BioMix control panel. The control system provides operators the ability to modify the mixing intensity and location based on specific operating needs, thus gaining efficiencies in air consumption and power usage. Case studies have identified the BioMix system as having a 60%+ reduction in power usage against the leading submersible mechanical mixer in comparably sized applications.

Features & Field-Proven Benefits:

  • Significant energy reduction
  • Uniform mixing in basins of any geometry
  • System scalability by leveraging compressed air supply to efficiently mix 40 tanks
  • No moving parts in the mixed liquor – all key components above the tank level
  • No maintenance of in-tank components

BioMix-AD

The BioMix-AD™ compressed gas mixing system provides uniform mixing through an array of nozzles in an anaerobic digester. This patented technology utilizes a number of parameters to control the firing of the gas injection valves in order to mix a specific sludge and tank geometry both vertically and horizontally.  The BioMix-AD system incorporates a distributed energy model that significantly introduces more mixing energy inputs then inefficient legacy technologies in the market.  Our approach is proven to be far more energy-efficient and provide better mixing as demonstrated by off-gas flow data analysis and mixing performance results.

Features & Field-Proven Benefits:

  • Complete tank mixing with 90%+ active volume
  • Reduced energy demand ~ 30-60%
  • Increased gas flow production ~ 23%
  • No maintenance of in-tank components
  • No moving parts in the mixed liquor – all key components above the tank level
  • Flexibility in zone control

BioCycle

The BioCycle™ process is an automated mixing and aeration system that operates on real-time process parameters or a time-based control system. This patented process integrates the BioMix™ compressed gas mixing system with a facility’s new or existing aeration system to be optimized for biological phosphorus release, simultaneous nitrification/denitrification, and alkalinity recovery in a single reactor.  By decoupling the aeration and mixing functions with a process control system, operators can now utilize existing basins flexibility to control Dissolved Oxygen (DO) levels, taper aeration, and cycle between aerobic and anoxic phases.

Features & Field-Proven Benefits:

  • Energy Reduction
  • Retrofit conventional activated sludge processes, oxidated ditches and aerobic sludge digesters
  • Reduce filamentous bacteria
  • Reduce the level of nitrogen in the aeration tank and recover alkalinity
  • Improve settleability of solids in the clarifier

AquaBlend

The AquaBlend system provides mixing for water storage and flocculation tanks by firing short bursts of compressed gas through NSF-compliant piping and engineered nozzles. The AquaBlend controller air injection valve intermittently fires to blend from the tank bottom to the water surface creating homogenous conditions, or fired in such a manner as to produce a particular velocity gradient (G value) and tapered flocculation.  The large bubbles create a distinctive mixing pattern, or “tank roll”, which is driven by inherent flexibility in the controls system.

Features & Field-Proven Benefits:

  • Bottom-up mixing in tanks of any size
  • Gentle, no-shear floc formation
  • Non-clogging in-tank elements
  • No maintenance of in-tank components
  • Easy-access, external maintenance
  • Low power usage

AquaBlend – FT

The EnviroMix AquaBlend™-FT system provides mixing in water treatment flocculation tanks by firing short bursts of compressed air through a patented nozzle system. The control system utilizes key parameters to manage the mixing energy in order to match the different mixing requirements within multi-stage flocculation tank systems. Process probe data signals may also be integrated with the AquaBlend-FT control system to vary mixing intensity in response to real-time conditions.

Legacy mechanical flocculators contain an extensive assortment of maintenance components subject to failure and relatively short life expectancy. With no moving mechanical or electrical components below the water surface, the technology from EnviroMix is ideal for long-term investments focused on performance and lifetime cost reduction.

“Our flocculation tank mixing technology extends our expertise in smart mixing solutions designed to integrate with other key processes upstream and downstream.” said Ted Jenkins, CEO of EnviroMix. “Utilities today are looking for long-term solutions that enable greater flexibility in managing water treatment. We will leverage our Digital -Water™ process control platform to deliver results at a fraction of the cost of traditional mixing technologies.”

Key Benefits

  • Gentle, no-shear floc formation
  • No mechanical or electrical components in the water
  • Non-clogging, self-cleaning 316SS in-tank components
  • Adjustable firing parameters for varying mixing requirements
  • One AquaBlend-FT compressor may be used to efficiently mix over 40 tanks
