Pure oxygen is used in the aeration system for wastewater treatment, which biologically treats wastewater using microbes of activated sludge in an aeration tank. The typical aeration tank process includes an air supply device for supplying air into the aeration tank, so that microbes in the activated sludge can respire. The conventional air supply device in the aeration tank has disadvantageous effects in that the supplied oxygen is insufficient for the respiration and growth of microbes of activated sludge because the atmospheric air supplied to the aeration tank contains only 21% oxygen.
By increasing the oxygen levels in the air supply the biological activity required to eliminate wastes in water is increased dramatically. A pure oxygen aeration system for wastewater treatment, which is capable of supplying gas containing 90% or higher oxygen to an aeration tank is an economical and efficient way to treat wastewater.
Foxolution SE CC has been supplying on-site gas generators to industry since 2001. Foxolutions intellectual property, expertise and know-how is founded on the Gas Mixing technology and PSA oxygen technology developed by Festo (Pty) Ltd in the early 90s. The technology is now owned by Foxolution as part of a technology transfer agreement.
Based on this expertise and decades spent in the gas industry, Fox is able not only to provide unique solutions when it comes to the on-site supply of gas to industry, but it is able to extend its offer to include the servicing, refurbishment and maintenance of all makes and sizes of oxygen and nitrogen generating plant. As a system integrator Fox also prides itself in being able to offer PLC software solutions to integrate its product offering with its client’s existing system(s) without the client having to source this service from a third party.
Our product offering has been expanded to include the provision of GFG gas detection equipment and the supply of compressed gas cylinders for its cylinder filling plant. Fox also designs, manufactures and installs nitrogen purging and blanketing systems (Zoned areas included) for the food, petrochemical and wine industry amongst others.
