BREEZE® Air Stripper
Efficiently Remove Contaminants From Water or Wastewater
Fluence’s Breeze air stripper serves as a low-maintenance, cost-efficient alternative for filters, packed towers, and mechanical aerators for fast, efficient removal of contaminants from water and wastewater in a wide variety of applications, including potable water contamination and groundwater contamination.
The Breeze is a highly efficient technology capable of removing nearly 100% of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and other gases dissolved in water.
How the Breeze Works
The Breeze air stripper consists of a tank made of high-strength polypropylene, an air blower, an internal air header, and patented non-fouling CYCLONE® II diffusers.
Contaminated water is fed into the Breeze air stripper tank and forced to flow in a serpentine pattern into uniquely designed multiple aerated chambers. The serpentine water flow maximizes detention time, and increases the air-to-water contact. The blower provides air to the diffusers, and the rising bubbles and turbulence provide the air-to-water interface required for efficient air stripping and contaminant removal, without the need for packing or media. The tank diffusers resist fouling caused by iron, calcium, and biological activity.
Each Breeze tank chamber comes with an adjustable weir plate to maintain proper water levels and performance without the need for complicated electrical controls. The system can be operated with an induced draft or positive displacement blower, using either coarse or fine bubble diffusers. A blast gate throttle allows the user to ramp up air-flow rates to provide a factor of operating safety.
Single units can handle flow rates up to 200 GPM (757 liters per minute). We’ve designed Breeze units to be compact, and to leave a small footprint. Multiple units can be placed in a series or stacked vertically to handle almost any flow rate.
The Breeze air stripper features include:
- Removal rates as high as 99.99%
- Compact and stackable framework, equipped with handles for easy transportation or relocation
- Seven tank size availability, with three to nine aeration chambers
- Stand-alone system functionality and interface capability with other treatment technologies
- Stainless steel or polypropylene construction
- Entirely removable cover, which provides access to the diffusers and easy routine maintenance
