Spartan Environmental Technologies commissions its first oxygenation system for a bio filtration process to remove organic contaminants from groundwater. A school district in New York needed to treat contaminated groundwater. A bio filtration process was selected to remove the organic contaminant, acetone, from the water, but because the groundwater was deficient in dissolved oxygen, a separate oxygenation system was required to support the bio filtration process.
Spartan modified its SPARTOX A30 ozone water treatment system by removing the ozone generator, but keeping the oxygen concentrator, venture injection system and controls. Upon start-up, the dissolved oxygen levels increased from less than 1 ppm to 12 ppm, above expectations of the engineering firm that designed the process.
Anthony Sacco, Marketing Director for Spartan, commented, "Spartan believes that with the increasing usage of bio filtration processes in water treatment that ozone and oxygenation systems will be used to improve performance of these system for removal of organic contaminants."
