Thames Water, London approached DropsA asking for a lubrication system for the aerators.
Aerators infuse air into the sewage and the oxygen pumped releases noxious gases such as CO2 and methane from the sewage.
Important Points of the system

Moreover due to health and safety the aerator would have to be stopped and emptied to allow an engineer proper access.
This case application was implemented using
