Water Treatment Plant Blowers

Effective wastewater treatment relies on robust aeration systems with industrial blowers at their heart.

As a ventilation solutions provider specializing in wastewater treatment plant equipment, we understand that identifying the optimal blowers is imperative.

With non-stop operation in harsh, corrosive conditions, centrifugal blowers must withstand damaging atmospheres. The technology chosen makes all the difference, from basic single-stage centrifugal fans to sophisticated multi-stage turbo blowers.

When specifying equipment, operators must consider efficiency requirements, connectivity capabilities, serviceability, and lifecycle costs.

In this article, we cut through the variables that different facilities should consider before purchasing anything.

With the right ventilation equipment, your plant can run more sustainably and cost-effectively for years.

Wastewater Treatment Blowers

Wastewater treatment blowers and aeration fans for wastewater treatment facilities are the most common type of mechanical air equipment used.

Blower fans assist in treating sewage odors and other byproducts that emanate from the facility. These mechanical fans are also made of anti-corrosive materials, which help extend the life of the blower fan in the wastewater treatment plant.

Materials Suitable for Wastewater Ventilation Equipment

Due to the corrosive contaminants being emitted, there are only few reliable materials that can be used in wastewater treatment municipalities.

As mentioned before, the material makeup of the equipment will depend on the process being performed and the byproducts associated with it.

Fiberglass is the most common material used due to its durability, reliability and versatility. Available in centrifugal, radial and axial configurations it is truly the most versatile and reliable solution for wastewater applications.

Wastewater Facilities Ventilation Challenges

Wastewater treatment and reclamation facilities provide the single largest pollution control effort on earth.

Generating water that is clean enough to be returned to the streams, rivers and lakes from which it came. The water is being returned to the world and the people within it, therefore it is paramount that the system cleaning the water be beyond reproach.

To achieve this high level of reliability the system should comprise of equipment that is equally reliable.

water treatment facility ventilation equipmentThe process of wastewater treatment produces many byproducts requiring ventilation, such as heat, moisture, fumes and odors. Each of these byproducts can also include corrosives that have a harmful effect on people, structure and process.

For this reason it is important to utilize the appropriate industrial ventilation equipment for the job.

Applying the right ventilation equipment in a wastewater treatment plant will ensure a reliable and long lasting process.
From air blowers for wastewater treatment facilities to makeup air, we will provide equipment that checks all the boxes.

Fans that are suitable for heavy duty, corrosive duty, and moisture laden applications. Our ventilation equipment will provide a reliable solution to maintain a quiet and clean environment for the site and surrounding community.

Chemical corrosion is a common challenge within a wastewater treatment plant or similar municipal water facility. The harsh chemicals supporting the non-stop operation of sludge-drying, odor controls, air strippers, aeration tanks and other essential equipment necessary for the wastewater reclamation process.


Proper ventilation is required for the following purposes:

Odor Control

Wastewater treatment plants must prioritize odor control, especially in urban and residential zones. These facilities produce hydrogen sulfide (H2S) gas which is highly toxic and has an equally offensive smell (sciencedirect.com source). This gas is typically the main cause of unpleasant odors in and around a wastewater reclamation facility.

Fortunately, there are many reliable options for facilities, such as wastewater treatment blowers, in which they can reduce or completely eradicate odor emissions safely and efficiently. The combination of a fume scrubber, blower fans, and the corresponding fiberglass exhaust fan will do the trick.

Zoning Regulations

When designing, replacing, upgrading or implementing equipment such as wastewater treatment blowers, there are regulations that must be adhered to.

Whether those regulations are for odors, electric efficiency, or any of the many other regulatory compliance issues, choose a supplier with expertise with such regulations.


We are well aware that cities, states and municipalities are working on a budget.
