What is Composting

The composting process is a complex interaction between the waste and the microorganisms within the waste. The microorganisms that carry out this process fall into three groups: bacteria, fungi, and¬†actinomycetes.¬†Actinomycetes¬†are a form of fungi-like bacteria that break down organic matter. The first stage of the biological activity is the consumption of easily available sugars by […]

Insights into Aeration Mechanism

If small enough, or even microscopic bubbles are achieved, as is possible with Aeration Turbines, supersaturation takes place – where oxygen levels are pushed beyond their natural limits. In normal circumstances, water will automatically drop oxygen levels back to their natural threshold, so there seems to be no point in doing this. The combination of […]

Current Limits in Aeration Technology

Put a steel pin or a small aluminium disk gently on the surface of water and it will make a slight dent but it will stay there. It will not sink, even though both aluminium and steel have a lot higher density than water. This demonstrates the toughness of any normal water surface, where water […]

Advances in Aeration Turbine Technology

The future of aeration technology lies in really dynamic solutions, such as turbines. They are in jet planes and even cars, hydro power plants, steam turbines, gas turbines and as wind turbines. They convert electricity to various kinds of flow and vice versa. Surely this is where the action is, so work should be done […]
