Explanation:
Rolf,
These are really difficult to answer. I was able to find one picture of a Tellerbeluefter, which is part of a Membranenbelüfter für die biologische Abwasserreinigung. See Unserer Umwelt zuliebe http://www.gummi-jaeger.de/de/Produkte/index.html. As for translation, I started looking through my Fachwb. Umwelttechnik, a belueftete Abwasserteich is an oxidation pond, stabilization lagoon, bio-oxidation pond, aerated lagoon. Thus, disk aerator is probably a good rendering of this. Please look at: Wastewater treatment technology of Nanjing Tannery

rotary lobe blower


Explanation:
In general, Kolben means either piston /plunger. But in this context, fluid moving equipment, (blowers, pumps and vacuum compressors), it should be translated as "lobe", since it is not a cylindrical shape. Check "rotating lobe pumps/ compressors", "Drehkolben-pumpen / verdichter" in german

disk aerator, rotary piston blower


Explanation:
These translations were suggested by Laixicon, a German/English and English/German technical reference.
Teller = disk
Belüfter = aerator
Drehkolben = rotary piston
Gebläse = blower
There were other suggestions, but the ones that I listed make sense in this context. Also, a google search on these Englich terms will give you more information. Good luck!
