Gas Infusion Device aerates wastewater.
Press Release Summary:
March 5, 2013 - Instead of making bubbles, Dif-Jet™ infuses oxygen from air or pure oxygen into water. Typical infusion rates are 90–95% dissolved oxygen using air and well above saturation levels using pure oxygen. Design allows treatment without fouling, as well as mixing of multiple gases into water when desired or required. Available in PVC and stainless steel construction, Dif-Jet can be used to reduce chemical oxygen demand and biological demand levels in wastewater.

Fortrans Inc. Unveils New Technology to Aerate Wastewater with Dif-Jet Gas Infusion Device
Press release date: February 25, 2013
WENDELL, N.C. -- Fortrans Inc. announces new technology for aeration of wastewater. The new Dif-Jet™ gas infusion device is a less expensive alternative to ordinary diffusers, injectors and sparger designs for aeration of wastewater. The reason is simple: the Dif-Jet™ infuser does not make bubbles; instead, it infuses oxygen from air or pure oxygen into the water. Typical infusion rates of 90% to 95% dissolved oxygen using air and well above saturation levels using pure oxygen.
The patent-pending design allows treatment without fouling or due to high solids or dissolved minerals in the water. The Dif-Jet™ gas Infusion device is very efficient at dissolving gases such as air, oxygen, carbon dioxide gas, ozone and nitrogen gas into water. The patent-pending design also allows for mixing multiple gases into water when desired or required.
Dif-Jet™ devices require less energy and can put more oxygen into water than blower systems or compressed air systems utilizing diffusers. Typically, no filters are required prior to gas infusion due to device design.
Industries can use Dif-Jet™ gas infusion devices to easily reduce Chemical Oxygen Demand and Biological Demand levels in wastewater and eliminate COD and BOD surcharges from municipal wastewater treatment plants.
The devices and system designs are highly scalable in terms of capacity to treat high volumes of water. The Dif-Jet™ gas infusion devices and systems are easily incorporated into existing treatment systems and are available in PVC and stainless steel designs.
Fortrans Inc. is a manufacturer of pH Control systems, aeration systems and environmentally safe and low toxicity specialty chemicals for the concrete industry.
