CHIGI® is a system that overcomes the design and efficiency limits of conventional systems. What’s more, unlike conventional systems, CHIGI44® has a vast range of possible uses. CHIGI44® is economical and boosts efficiency, flexibility and adaptability beyond all expectations.
CHIGI44® BREATHING WATER TECHNOLOGY
The exclusive ATI SRL CHIGI44® BREATHING WATER is a state-of-the-art technology in treatment and oxygenation solutions for any body of water.
Efficient, silent, resistant to pressure changes up to 6 bar and very versatile, it is suitable for a large number of applications:
- tank and open-water fish farming
- mussel farming
- Civil and industrial wastewater treatment
- vegetation water treatment
- farm wastewater treatment
- landfill leachate treatment
- biomass production (algae growing in tanks and in the sea)
- stabilising lubricoolants
- flotation, mining, excavation, hydrocarbon pollution, oxygenating polluted aquifers
CHIGI44® technology is inherently ecological: it can be powered by both wind and solar energy, it has no impact on the environment and its quietness means it is well tolerated by fish in fish farms.
CHIGI44® is powered using just the evaporation energy of oxygen (able to reach pressures up to 6 bar), without the need for additional energy sources.
CHIGI44® represents a total paradigm shift from the mechanical technologies adopted so far, which are characterised by high installation and maintenance costs and high energy consumption, but low efficiency levels.
CHIGI44® COMPARED TO CONVENTIONAL SYSTEMS
Chigi44® is a system that revolutionises the biological oxidation plant sector, overcoming the design and efficiency limits of conventional systems. What’s more, unlike conventional systems, CHIGI44® has a vast range of possible uses.
With Chigi44®, you can make savings and boost efficiency, flexibility and adaptability beyond all expectations. Only an in-depth examination of the system’s characteristics and innovations compared to conventional plants can reveal the huge potential of CHIGI44®.
CHIGI44® technology generates microbubbles that produce an unrivalled oxygenation level thanks to a large contact surface and a very long ascent time.
|CHIGI44® BREATHING WATER TECHNOLOGY||CONVENTIONAL SYSTEMS|
|Streamlined, modular design, easily adapted to requirements.||Rigid, non-expandable structures, anchored to the base.|
|High efficiency in any application.||Low efficiency and poor operating flexibility.|
|Intrinsically environment-friendly technology. Can be powered by solar and/or wind energy.||Operating rigidity and high energy costs.|
|The use of individual modules, which can be removed, allows maintenance to be performed without stopping the working cycle.||Conventional systems are structurally rigid due to their anchors. Maintenance is complex: tanks have to be drained and working cycles interrupted.|
|Pressures may vary from 0 to 6-8 bar without affecting the structure of the microbubbles.||Limited operating pressures, no flexibility in terms of power supply.|
|Excellent operating flexibility and oxygenation efficiency that improves as head increases.||Low oxygen transfer to water due to the system’s technological limits.|
|The use of oxygen favours the production of high water heads (6-10 m).||Conventional systems only function with low water heads.|
|One positive side-effect of the use of oxygen is odour elimination.||Poor odour elimination capability.|
|In the design phase, CHIGI44® can be constructed vertically instead of horizontally, allowing variations in population equivalent to be managed with a single system in which the levels are adjustable and by simply regulating the oxygen.||No flexibility, high operating costs even when underused. Conventional systems operate with low heads and therefore require vast areas and complex machinery with high energy consumption: costs are high even when plants are underused at specific times of year.|
|CHIGI44® configurations can be customised to user needs.||Conventional systems do not allow customised configurations.|
