Stripping or else said aeration of water is used to remove gases like carbon dioxide, methane, hydrogen sulfide and also volatile organic carbons (VOC) or to insert oxygen into the water.
containerized stripperThere are many methods used for stripping/aeration of water and the most common practice is to use stripping towers or (multiple) plate aerators (besides inline aeration and spraying, vacuum degassing, and so on). 

Logisticon has a lot of experience on reclamation of ground water and used the stripping process for all kinds of VOCs (including with air active carbon to remove the VOCs from the air - see example of containerized system on the right). Logisticon integrates the stripping tower - small and large diameter tower - with the container construction which contains the buffer, ventilators, pumps and more equipment / controls. Besides stripping towers Logisticon also developed multiple plate aerators which could be foreseen with automatic cleaning system (dosing of chemical to clean plates).

Containerized system with integrated double stripping tower 

This nice coloured containerized system contains a prefiltration (sand filter) followed by two stripping towers for the removal of VOC out of the water. The strippers are transported separately and are mounted on top of the container and connected to the pump buffers within the container.

Multiple plate aerator in container

The advantage of the multiple plate aerator is that the aeration system can be made very compact. The plate aerators are made out of stainless steel and can container 1 to 6 plates. This container system is also foreseen with a prefiltration (sand filter) and contains integrated buffers.
