Aerator bearings are treatment systems and meets all requirements of NSF/ANSI pre-lubricated and sealed. Singulair aerators are installed Standard 40. In ecologically sensitive areas, the most in a concrete mounting casting above the aeration chamber.

BIO-STATIC® SLUDGE RETURN
Each Bio-Static sludge return is installed in the aeration/clarification chamber wall. Aeration chamber hydrauliccurrents enter the sludge return(s) and transfer solids fromthe clarification chamber back to the aeration chamber foradditional treatment. The Bio-Static sludge returnaccomplishes resuspension and return of settled solidswithout disturbing the contents of the clarification chamber.

The flow unnecessarily reducing the level of dissolved oxygen in the equalization provided by the Bio-Kinetic system causes treatment system effluent. Bio-Neutralizer dechlorination wastewater to be held upstream of the final outlet during tablets utilize a unique chemical mixture for chlorine hydraulic surges, which preserves treatment integrity and reduction and environmental protection. As liquid passes enhances system operation. The actual rate of equalization through the final discharge zone of the Bio-Kinetic system, varies and depends upon specific loading patterns and the the flow contacts the installed Bio-Neutralizer tablets and duration of each flow surge.

SINGULAIR® SERVICE PROGRAM
Semi-annual service inspections, at six month intervals for the first two years of system operation, are provided by your localNorweco distributor and are included in the original purchase price of the Singulair system. Costs for travel and labor are notcharged to the owner. During an inspection, each mechanical aerator, Bio-Kinetic system and other plant components areserviced as outlined in the Singulair Product Manual. After the initial two year service program is completed, the local serviceprovider will provide continued service at the owner's option. The service program should be renewed by the owner to insuremaximum system performance.
Ask your Singulair service provider about a renewable service contract. If you allow service coverage to expire, you can stillobtain the professional assistance of a factory-trained technician. However, these special service calls will be performed on atime and materials basis. Professional service is important to proper system operation and should not be allowed to lapse. Besure to consider the advantages of a renewable service contract.
The Singulair service provider will perform the following services during each service inspection: Check aerator operation Inspect outlet coupling Check aerator power consumption Install a clean Bio-Kinetic system Check aerator air delivery Fill Blue Crystal feed tube Clean stainless steel aspirator shaft Fill Bio-Neutralizer feed tube Clean aspirator tip Inspect effluent quality Clean fresh air vent in concrete cover Inspect outlet line Inspect aeration chamber contents Inspect ground water relief point Check operation of control center Inspect effluent disposal system Adjust time clock when required Complete 3-part service record Remove the Bio-Kinetic system Hang owner's record on front door Scrape the clarification chamber Enter record into www.servicepromcd.com
