Online Monitoring & Control

Roxia Malibu™ is a new way to combine your process and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Remote access allows you to manage, measure and analyse your water treatment processes out of the control room with a computer or any handheld device. Malibu can predict failures before they occur, allowing you to manage unplanned shutdowns.

Analytics tools and Roxia expert services help optimise your processes and increase productivity in food production’s water treatment. The system can be integrated into any existing process equipment and control system.

  • Plant process monitoring
  • Remote monitoring and support
  • Improved safety
  • Predict equipment failures before they occur
  • Easy access to documentation

Complete Project Management & Implementation

We also offer industrial automation, electrification and instrumentation solutions for wastewater treatment plantsand other, environment-related facilities. We have an entire team of environmental technologies experts, that in those cases join forces with our automation professionals. In cooperation with your team, we define the project needs and deliver entire EIA systems.

Wastewater Treatment

Municipal wastewater treatment plants are one of the entry points for automation, instrumentation and electrification. We handle larger project and also wastewater treatment processes that run on the side of the main activity.

Common Applications:

Sewage Sludge Treatment

Typical Cases:

  • Automation for the entire sewage sludge treatment plant
  • Burner Management Systems (BMS)

Together for Sustainable Development

Our team of wastewater treatment experts is committed to find and set-up environment-friendly processes for water treatment across numerous industries and applications.

Water treatment for food industries

Wastewater fees or meeting emission limits can be challenging for any food processing plant. We help you meet and maintain your target emission levels.

Explore options for process water reuse

Our expert team not only suggest how to reuse your process water, but also designs, delivers and implements the solutions.

Destroy organic pollutants

Organic contaminants such as pharmaceuticals can be tricky to eliminate from the water. Luckily, we have just the technology: non-thermal plasma oxidation scaled up for industrial use!

Introduce aeration to lagoons, ponds and basins

Simply by introducing more oxygen to lagoons or basins, it is possible to quickly get rid of bad odour and improve water quality. Our floating aerators are a great, low-investment solution for most cases.

We help you bring down wastewater costs and fees by environmentally friendly onsite wastewater pretreatment

PROCESS WATER REUSEEliminate Microbes and Reuse Process Water

Our trailblazing plasma technology gets rid of microbes in your process water. You get to reuse it, bring down water consumption and cut the costs.

Waters with organic pollutionsChemical-Free Water Treatment

Organic pollutants such as pharmaceuticals and phenols can be challenging to get out of water. Our solution can remove them by the source – say goodbye to costly end-of-pipe solutions!

AERATED LAGOONS IN WATER TREATMENTYes to Aeration, No to Bad Odour

Lagoons and ponds often face the challenge of low water quality and bad smell. Aeration might be the solutions to your problem. Check out our low-investment and highly efficient technology!

Yes to Aeration, No to Bad Odour

Water is the universal solvent, mass transfer media, coolant, and raw material for industrial processes. Inevitably, the use of water also means liquid emissions, which in numerous industrial sites is manifested by wastewater ponds and basins.

Aerated lagoons are simple wastewater treatment processes. Lagoons  are usually large, relatively shallow basins with long residence times. This means the process water is pumped into the lagoon and left there for biological wastewater treatment. Lagoons can be completely mixed or facultative type where only the surface layer is aerated and mixed.

Why is aeration a good idea?

One of the main objectives of lagoons is to provide time for biological wastewater treatment. Biological treatment requires oxygen, which means you have to somehow introduce additional oxygen to the water. Usually, the diffusion of atmospheric oxygen together with photosynthesis is not enough to provide oxygen for other than very low-load wastewaters. Thus, efficient aeration is required to achieve emission limits and effluent quality targets.

Aeration is widely used in water treatment and conditioning in different industries:

  • Pulp and paper
  • Chemical industries
  • Food and beverages
  • Mining applications
  • Landfill sites
  • Fish farming
Aerator transfers oxygen into wastewater and then disperses and effectively mixes the oxygen-enriched water in the basin.

Eliminate Bad Odour

Standing water can result in oxygen depletion. In other words, there’s less and less oxygen in the water and more and more bad odour coming out from lagoons, ponds or basins. Less oxygen in the water also means bad water quality which might result in penalty fees from exceeding emission limits.

How to improve the water quality? The reason for the foul smell of industrial lagoons and basins often lies in poor or negligible aeration that results in anaerobic processes. By simply introducing more oxygen to the water, you can solve two problems at once:


Example of how introducing oxygen to anaerobic ponds improves water quality. 

Get rid of the bad smell

Prevent penalty fees from exceeding emission limits

Improve water quality

Lower wastewater fees

Reduce Costs

How to introduce more oxygen to lagoons, ponds and basins? Roxia has an aeration solution that is highly efficient and has a low initial investment: Roxia Floating Aerator. Adding oxygen to the water helps reduce the bad smell, improve water quality and thus reduce wastewater costs!

Floating Aerator: Convenient Aeration Solution

The aerators are easy to retrofit to existing lagoons and basins. After start-up, they immediately start improving the quality of the water. We offer a wide range of floating aerators for ponds and basins with different dimensions and oxygen requirements.

  • Low-cost solution
  • Convenient and light setup (requires only mooring & electrical supply)
  • No need to empty the lagoon for the installation

Standing water can result in oxygen depletion and problems with water quality. A foul smell of industrial basins is often attributable to poor or negligible aeration and resulting anaerobic processes.

Aeration Goes Smart

Another important benefit of Roxia Floating Aerator is the IIoT option. Upon request, it can be delivered as a fully automated Smart Aeration System with Roxia Malibu™ digital platform. The system can be customized according to your site-specific requirements.

 


In addition to biological treatment, aeration can be used to mitigate problems in equalization and retention basins.
