The Birth of the Air Bearing – APG-Neuros’ Gary Cederstrom

APG-Neuros is a pioneer in the use of air bearings in turbo blowers. Plattsburgh once rumbled with the sound of jet engines and the occasional sonic boom of fighter planes shattering the sound barrier. Today, the city is host to another type of turbine, one that traces its engineering roots to fighter jets and commercial […]

Emerging Technologies: Turbo Blowers Offer Energy and Cost Savings

When APG-Neuros came out with their revolutionary air-bearing technology just a few years ago in 2005, it was received with hesitation and skepticism on the wastewater market. Today, APG-Neuros’ air-bearing turbo blowers are installed in 443 locations in North America and 120 units are currently on order. The product has optimized and made aeration more […]

Greening the Plant: Breath of Air (TPO Magazine)

High-Speed Turbo Blowers play a central role in a Texas treatment plant’s energy efficiency upgrade project Operators at the Grace Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant in Longview, Texas, expect significant savings from an energy efficiency project that includes replacement of two of five older aeration blowers with high-speed, high-efficiency units. The project is part of a $1,045,625 […]

Optimization of WWTP Aeration Process Upgrades for Energy Efficiency

By K. Y. Bell* and S. Abel The volatility of energy prices, desire to improve sustainability, recently proposed legislation, and energy efficiency project funding have created big opportunities to improve energy and operation efficiency at most water and wastewater facilities. One mechanism of developing these opportunities is through energy management planning. Focusing on wastewater treatment, […]

The Evolution of Blowers

How aeronautic technology changed the way we aerate and who is behind it all. When APG-Neuros, Inc. came out with their revolutionary air-bearing technology just a few years ago in 2005, it was received with hesitation and skepticism on the wastewater market. Today, APG-Neuros’ air-bearing turbo blowers are installed in 220 locations in North America […]

Educating the Market is What It Takes

Headquartered in Boisbriand, just outside Montreal, APG-Neuros, Inc. is the driving force behind a new generation of high-speed turbo blowers for the wastewater treatment industry. It has taken the company three years to educate the market about this new development, but it is now beginning to harvest the fruits of its labor. APG-Neuros is a […]

From Planes to WWTPs: Wastewater Technology Finds Inspiration in Surprising Places

Often, a technology’s initial application is only the beginning of its usefulness. After a technology is proven in one industry, another may adapt it to suit its needs. As wastewater treatment professionals look to improve efficiencies, some are turning to technologies that originated far afield from wastewater treatment — in aerospace, for instance. Airplanes and […]
