AERZEN goes on a big roadshow


Since the beginning of October 2019 AERZEN is on a big tour through Germany. As part of the “LET’S TALK” Tour, we are visiting operators and engineering offices in the field of wastewater technology to discuss their needs and requirements and our individual solution concepts.

The AERZEN “LET’S TALK” Tour runs until May 2020.

The ubiquitous question in the industry is: “How efficient is revitalisation in the clarification process really?” It is a reasonable question to ask, as the aeration of the aeration tanks usually accounts for the lion’s share of the annual electricity costs of the entire plant. “We want to show how tailor-made plant concepts can enable significantly more efficient aeration, minimise operating costs in the long term and also protect the environment. Therefore, a more resource-efficient aeration of the plant is always worth a discussion,” says Markus Leidinger, Application Manager Wastewater at AERZEN. 

One approach is the use of turbo blowers with air foil bearing. With an installation area of less than 1 m² the Aerzen Turbo AT50 G5plus is the smallest machine on the market. The AT50 G5plus is also the most efficient machine in the lower volume flow range at very low sound levels. The innovative air foil bearing, with a service life of over 80,000 operating hours, makes the assembly virtually maintenance-free and guarantees absolute process reliability even during pressure peaks. “We make these convincing features tangible, because we simply bring the AT50 G5plus with us and demonstrate the machine’s capabilities on site. In addition, we have many other topics with us that will make your plant more resource-efficient. We are looking forward to many interesting discussions,” adds Markus Leidinger. The Germany tour will continue until the IFAT Trade Fair in May 2020.

Aerzen Turbo Korea successfully validated for US-American CTPAT programme

Aerzen Turbo Korea successfully validated for US-American CTPAT programme

Thanks to the successful re-validation of Aerzen Turbo Korea as a foreign supplier, Aerzen USA can continue its participation in the CTPAT programme. CTPAT, which is the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism, is intended to strengthen international supply chains and improve border security in the United States. Every four years the re-validation of a supplier abroad becomes necessary, in this case Aerzen Turbo Korea. Aerzen USA has been participating in this programme since 2016, which brings considerable advantages for the import of goods. For example, CTPAT members are subject to fewer customs inspections and waiting times at the border for the import of products are reduced.
