Lightweight Baffles Double Facility’s Capacity

In the first quarter of 2008, two 65’ diameter wastewater treatment facility tanks were re-fitted with Strongwell’s fiberglass baffle system. The baffle panels are an integral component to the activated sludge process designed by H.R. Green and Associates of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

The baffle panels were stacked 28’ high inside each tank. Installation was easy because the panels are lightweight. The corrosion resistant fiberglass product will also have a much longer life cycle when compared to the previous system’s redwood, which rotted.

After the installation, the customer reported the new process more than doubled capacity to treat wastewater.
