About Mapal Aeration Solutions
Mapal Aeration Solutions, founded in 2008, is a global, Israeli based, technology company that designs, manufactures and supplies Fine Bubble wastewater aeration solutions. The company has a patented technology for Retrievable Fine Bubble Aeration systems (RFBA™) and Floating Fine Bubble Aeration systems (FFBA™). We provide wastewater aeration solutions for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants of any type and size, and oﬀer a range of aeration products that provide complete and customized solutions. The aeration units can work alongside existing fixed-to-the-floor diffusers and surface aeration, for supplemental oxygen.
- Municipal and industrial wastewater treatment solutions for reactors and lagoons
- Aeration and mixing solutions
- Upgrades for wastewater treatment plants
- Rental equipment for supplemental/emergency aeration
Our strategy is to provide a quick solution to lack of oxygen in wastewater, safely and easily.
Lack of oxygen in wastewater can be a result of a range of reasons: broken down equipment requiring repair, insufficient or ineffective aeration, peak season, and more. We have found that wastewater operators face great challenges in dealing with these situations, due to the difficulty in emptying the aeration basin in order to repair or replace broken down equipment, or the safety hazards of requiring a person to enter the wastewater for maintenance. In many cases this results in the wastewater treatment plant just being left as is, without dealing with the situation as required.
This is why we have designed a wastewater aeration solution that can provide supplemental oxygen easily and quickly, in a full and active aeration basin, without needing to drain the pool, stop the process, or for a person to enter the wastewater, and can operate alongside existing aeration.
We do so by placing ready aeration units in the wastewater with a crane. There are no people and no electricity in the water.
A blower is connected outside the pool to airpipes that lead to the diffusers.
The immediate need for oxygen has also lead us to develop a business model which enables our customers to rent the aeration units for as long as they need them. This enables the expense to come out of the Opex rather than the Capex budget.
Mapal’s Environmental Commitment
- Concept – Wastewater aeration
Water Re-use – Aerated wastewater, following sufficient treatment, becomes suitable for agriculture irrigation or for returning to a natural water source.
- Method – Diffuser aeration
- Reduced contamination – Whereas with surface aeration aerosols consisting of harmful chemicals, germs and bad odours pollute the air, diffuser aeration occurs in the depth of the water therefore no contaminated water is thrown into the air.
- Energy efficiency – Energy consumption is significantly lower using diffusers than surface aeration.
- Effluent consent – Diffuser Aeration is more efficient in the depth (>1.8 m) of the pool than surface aeration, enabling reaching the required environmental effluent consent.
- Mapal’s unique waste reduction solution
Mapal’s robust stainless steel aeration system structure enables:
- Unit Re-use – Mapal’s units can be removed from the water and installed in different basins as needed.
- Reduced carbon footprint – Mapal’s rental option significantly reduces the waste incurred in producing new units and the environmental effects of old units disposal.
- Sustainability – when diffuser membrane needs replacement, our unit can be retrieved from the water, and the membrane can easily be replaced.
