Aeration of ponds with AirX
AirX is a hose diffuser designed to provide air over large areas in dams and freshwater ponds. AirX adds air efficiently throughout the water column and is more effective than conventional paddle wheels that only affect the upper water layer.
AirX can be used in both dams for shrimp and fish and can effectively cover areas up to 10,000 m2. Because AirX delivers air to the deep, it will add a lot of oxygen per kilowatts used, and during measurements achieved a 2.7E SAE, which is highly efficient.
Experience shows that oxygen shortages may occur during periods of the year. This is usually due to biological activity and is most acute in the dark part of the day. If there is a lack of oxygen, an increase of only 5-10% dissolved oxygen can result in more than 10% improved growth. Aerating in periods will therefore be profitable.
Next to AirX we supply air pumps of type lobe pump, which are specially adapted to air supply through AirX. The air pumps provide adequate pressure and provide high capacity m3 air per kW energy consumption. The pumps require low maintenance and have a very long service life (up to 10 years).
NetOx material: EPDM
Opening pressure: <1 bar
Dimension / outer dim: DN 20/28
Supply hose dim: DN 13
AirX can be designed according to the geometry of the pond.
Patented construction allows AirX to deliver the same amount of oxygen to all parts of the pond.
We supply compact lobe type compressors suitable for AirX.
