Hoot’s Extended Aeration technology can be either course or fine air, and has the ability to be monitored by Dissolved Oxygen Sensors and controlled by Variable Frequency Drives ( VFD’s). Typically designed for applications at or below secondary standards, with a typical limit of no less than 15/15 mg/L on BOD/TSS.
Hoot’s Media Treatment System is the perfect combination the efficiency of Extended Aeration with the resilience of Fixed Media. The system features fine air diffusion combined and is monitored by dissolved oxygen sensor(s) attached to intelligent VFD’s that only provide the air needed for the treatment process. This system can also be used for Total Nitrogen Reductions in excess of 50%, and reliably to below as 20mg/L without the use of additional chemicals (based on typical average influent balance and a Carbon to Nitrogen Ration of at least 3 to 1) BOD/TSS Discharge standards of 10/10 mg/L can be met when appropriately designed and operated.
This system combines our MTS Technology with our Patented ANR (Advanced Nitrogen Reduction) process. This technology is reserved for applications where Total Nitrogen requirements or Nitrate are at or below 10 mg/L or the carbon to nitrogen balance of the influent is below 3 to 1.
For applications that begin out in the 50,000+ GPD range, this is a cost effective technology with a reduced footprint and a very young sludge age. The Hoot-Tech Aero-Rotor is and Integrated Fixed-Film Activated Sludge (IFAS) technology, with Mechanical Aerator, not an RBC. The process is controlled using Dissolved Oxygen Sensors and VFD’s to speed up and slow down or speed up the mechanical aeration process. This system requires an extremely small foot print (6 hours average retention vs standard 24) compared to other technologies, is virtually silent in operation and is very energy efficient.
The Hoot CMBR is primarily used as a polishing filter, and is available as a final step of a complete Hoot Treatment System, where the effluents are either directly discharged or are re-used within the structures (for toilet flushing, as an example). This technology is also available as a stand alone addition to other treatment processes that are out of compliance because of changing discharge standards or flows greater than expected.
