Floating Aerators

Floating aerators are mechanical devices used to promote oxidation and mixing in retentions ponds and basins associated with wastewater treatment facilities. The floating aerators sit on the surface of the water, drawing air from the atmosphere and delivering it into the pond where it promotes biologic oxidation of the wastewater. The process of injecting the air into the pond also effectively mixes the water, helping to improve the efficiency of the pond treatment process.
