AIRE-O2® Series II Aerator
Note: For aquaculture use only—NOT intended for wastewater.
For aeration and circulation. The AIRE-O2® is the original aspirating aerator first developed over 25 years ago. The AIRE-O2® Series II is a surface mounted, electric motor-driven, adjustable, aspirating aerator. It is lightweight and portable and can be adjusted from 25 to 45 degrees to optimize mixing, oxygen dispersion and/or destratification for various depths and applications.
The design features floatation built to withstand harsh conditions. It consists of a pontoon made of molded, polyethylene with an ultraviolet resistance. The shaft housing is non-metallic, non-corroding and flanged for mounting to the aerator. It forms a guard around the 316 stainless steel hollow shaft and supports a field replaceable, water-lubricated bearing press-fitted into the housing's lower end. The propeller/diffuser can be replaced easily in the field.
The motor is a premium quality USA motor designed for tough environments and years of trouble-free operation. It is totally enclosed and fan-cooled with a service factor of 1.15.
The motor is connected to a hollow shaft within a protective housing that is angled downward into the water. The shaft is connected to and drives a propeller/diffuser beneath the water surface that induces a pressure differential and draws air through intake holes above the water surface and down through the end of the rotating hollow shaft. The AIRE-O2® system distributes and uniformly mixes oxygen throughout the pond, producing fine bubbles smaller than 2.2 mm in diameter.
Each aerator arrives fully assembled, ready for attachment to the floatation assembly. Two- and three-hp models are available in various voltage and phase options, including 50 Hz. Larger hp models are available. Order underwater power cable below. Mooring cable not included. Ships by motor freight from factory. Weighs 70 lbs. One-year warranty. Made in USA.
