The review is concerned with the transfer of oxygen from air to a wastewater subjected to biological aerobic treatment. Oxygen transfer from gaseous to the liquid phase, is a vital part of a number of wastewater treatment processes, such as activated sludge process which is totally depend on the availability of sufficient quantity of oxygen. This paper is a study of oxygen transfer rate, efficiency, capacity and their kinetics on aeration system. Apart from this the study shows how the sludge retention time and the oxygen uptake rate is depend on the temperature of wastewater of sewage treatment plant. The standard oxygen transfer rate is the decisive factor in the dimensioning of activated sludge process used in STP Plants. It depends on the required oxygen uptake rate by micro-organisms. This review discuss about the dependency of oxygen transfer rate on the temperature of wastewater.
