AquaAir Diffused Canal Aerator

The AquaAir Series of lake aerators - Heathland Aquatic Engineering, Norfolk, Suffolk & Essex

Reliable aeration for canals

Every managed body of water must have a reliable aeration solution in place to keep the water healthy. Superior aeration and de-stratification is essential for canals that:

reservoir diffused aeration system compressor units
  1. Require a more natural setting
  2. Permit safe recreational use
  3. Require non-moving parts
  4. Are very deep or large canals
  5. Require non-electrical parts in the reservoir
  6. Need no noise aerators
  7. Need minimal surface water disturbance

AquaAir diffused aeration systems are a perfect choice for aeration in canals. These aeration units offer low power consumption compared to traditional style aerators and don't need electrical components in the canal.

Aqua Air provides canals with high end aeration, circulation and de-stratification.  They use bottom fitted diffusers so that dissolved oxygen (DO) levels increase throughout the entire water column in the canal. The diffusers employ a fine micro-bubble technology that gives the highest diffuser oxygen transfer rate (OTR) possible.  The micro-bubbles bring water from the canal floor to the surface, where atmospheric oxygen is absorbed and is then transferred throughout the water column. This process creates a circulating flow of water and helps prevent thermal stratification (layers involving different temperatures inside the water).

The diffusers are linked via self-weighted super sink air tubing to an innovative cylindrical shape enclosure that contains a compressor (there are four sizes of compressor). (1/3 - 1HP) ranged system sizes; operate with (1 - 6) diffusers.

Key Features of AquaAir diffused aeration for canals

  • complete water column circulation - up to 4000 GPM determined by diffuser depth
  • Prevention of thermal stratification in canals
  • Increased dissolved oxygen (DO) levels that reduce algae growth
  • Expansion of the oxygenated habitat and ecosystem of the canal
  • Reduction of mosquito and aquatic midge-fly infestations
  • Elimination of foul odours in your canal
  • Reduction of bottom sludge accumulation in the canal
  • Super sink air tubing is flexible and won't crack even in cold temperatures
  • Two available sizes of 100' coils
  • For quick connections super sink air T=tubing utilize PVC insert fittings
  • Three diffusers are available
