SSI PTFE Disc Diffusers “Made Life Easier” for SCA Tissue of Menasha, Wisconsin

SSI receives a lot of letters from happy customers, but this one was especially heartening so we would like to share it with you.

“A few weeks ago you asked me for a short summary of how I like the new diffusers that we bought from you dating back to Spring of 2005. Below is my story.”


About seven ago, we had some major problems with a couple of our 500 HP Hoffman Blowers. We had major repairs on both of them, one in 2000 and the other in 2001. Well, to make a long story short, we found out that the diffusers that we had in the aeration basins were the major reason that the blowers ended up with major repair. Many of the diffusers were in need of being replaced due to plugging and scaling on the diffuser. We have around 1100 diffusers in one aeration basin and another 1200 diffusers in the other basin. Now to replace all the diffusers would be a major expense. The current supplier was charging us a hefty price so we started to search around for new diffusers. We came across the SSI diffusers and first tried them in the summer of 2005. It was probably the best decision we have made in our wastewater treatment plant since it started processing water. Not only can we afford to replace the old diffusers, the new SSI seem to be more durable than the old ones and don’t require as much maintenance. We also see that they do not plug up or scale up as bad as the old diffusers. Our current blowers could not be happier as well as myself. We have been thoroughly satisfied with the SSI diffusers from DGJ Gongol and Associates and would recommend these diffusers to everyone. Thank you for such a good and reliable product. You have definitely made life easier for all of us here at SCA Tissue.

Sincerely, Paul Johnson-Env. Manager “
