Aeration

Healthy Ponds Need Oxygen

The oxygen in water is rarely sufficient for the fish population. This is especially true of ponds with little natural exchange of water. Here, aeration of the water is essential for the well-being of the fish. Pollution of the water by phosphates, nitrogen and dead plant material leads to over-enrichment of he water and excessive biological activity. We offer a range of aerators for lakes and ponds, from commercial needs to fish farming hobbyists.

Aqua pilz

Aqua Pilz

The Aqua-Pilz aerator agitates the whole body of the water by means of large-scale circulation and a wide, mushroom shaped fountain. The floating Aqua-Pilz aerators discharge the water upwards, as a fountain does, and in so doing create an attractixve water feature.

Submerged Aqua Pilz

Aqua Pilz

with submerged motor

The Aqua-Pilz aerator agitates the whole body of the water by means of large-scale circulation and a wide, mushroom shaped fountain. This model hides the motor below the surface of the water to reduce sound.

 Aqua Wheel 

The Aqua-Wheel paddle-wheel aerators work by considerably increasing the surface area of the water, giving much improved exchange of gases between the air and water. They do this by breaking the water into tiny drop lets and flinging them up into the air. The droplets are then able to take up oxygen and discharge to the atmosphere polluting gases, such as carbon dioxide. An added benefit is the increased circulation of the water, which distributes the oxygen-enriched water. Aqua-Wheel requires almost no maintenance. The paddle wheels turn slowly, and are only slightly submerged in the water, so in most cases a protective screen is not required.

 Aqua Wheel 

With brushes

We also can deliver our proven aerator Aqua-Wheel in two sizes fitted with our brush wheels as an alternative to the paddle wheels. The flexible brush wheels result in a good intermixing and achieve a better and higher flow in the pond than the bladed wheels. But the oxygen input is slightly lower.

By installing the brush wheels, AquaWheel can also be used in cases of very dense fish stock or in ponds holding young or brood fish. Damage to the fish caused by paddle blades is avoided with the flexible brushes. In addition, floating debris cannot damage the brushes, and blockage is virtually impossible.

Aqua Mini

Aqua-Mini has a small, adjust able submersible motor. Because of the infinitely variable speed controller the power of the aerator can be adjusted optimally and tuned in to the size of the pond giving cost-effective continuous operation. Aqua-Mini is delivered ready for use with 10 m of cable and speed controller.

Aqua Max

Aqua-Maxi has a robust stainless steel submersible motor and achieves great water circulation with low use of energy. The fountain pattern is created by a specially designed conical deflector achieving excellent aeration and a good current away from the machine, avoiding ‘short-circuiting’.

Spec | Video | PDF

Aqua Hobby

Aqua-Hobby has an encapsulated motor, which is fixed in an aluminium protective casing onto the float above the water surface. It is virtually silent in operation. The water fountain automatically cools the motor. Aqua-Hobby is suitable for ponds up to a maximum of 200 square metres.

Spec | Video | PDF

Aqua Jet

Aqua-Jet is very easy to deploy and install. A fixed installation is unnecessary, as it is only required to anchor the aerator to stop it drifting away. The robust submersible pump generates a powerful flow with excellent oxygen transfer. This water circulation strips waste gases from the water, including carbon dioxide, and thus dis courages algae. The angle of discharge (trajectory) of the water jet is adjustable according to the desired flow, size of the pond and stock of fish.

Turbo Jet

with submerged motor

Turbo-Jet operates silently below the water surface, its directly driven propeller produces an enormous water circulation with relatively low energy-consumption. The special action of the high-speed motorised impeller draws in air, breaking it into thousands of small bubbles. The special water/air bubble jet is directed down into the water at an angle and mixes the whole volume and prevents the formation of dead spots.

  • Aqua Plitz

    Aqua Plitz for lake and pond aerationThe Aqua-Pilz aerator agitates the whole body of the water by means of large-scale circulation and a wide, mushroomshaped fountain. Harmful gases are expelled as a result of circulating the water. The ripples that are created disturb the surface of the water with the result that there is no heavy formation of algae.

    The floating Aqua-Pilz aerators discharge the water upwards, as a fountain does, and in so doing create an attractive water feature. The water is stimulated and circulated with a propeller. The angle of trajectory of the spray and the impact on the water surface enhances the exchange of gases with the atmosphere. The gas filtration and oxygenation is unequalled, resulting in a healthy fish population.

    The angle of expulsion has been chosen so that waves move outwards from the aerator, distributing the aerated water throughout the pond. Stagnant, oxygen poor zones are thus avoided.

    This flow of water away from the apparatus also ensures that the aerator always draws water low in oxygen from below, circulates it and enriches it with oxygen. A short-circuit flow is avoided by the angle of expulsion. Aqua-Pilz comes in two designs: with a surface motor and with a submersible motor. Both types are almost identical in terms of performance, oxygen enrichment and power consumption.

    The submersible-motor design produces a lower and rather broader fountain of water, while the fountain from the surface-based-motor version is rather higher but more narrow. Only the submersible motor version is suitable for use during winter (to reduce the formation of ice for example). Both types of Aqua-Pilz are, of course, designed for continuous operation. The aerators are supplied ready for use and come with cable and motor-protection device. All screen baskets, fittings, motor shafts and screws are made from rust-resistant materials.

    The high-performance electric motor in this type of aerator is housed, with its long stainless-steel shaft, in a polyethylene cover on the float above the surface of the water.

    From the outside the isolated motor operates silently, and only the murmur of the stimulated water can be heard. A large rust-proof inlet excludes fish and debris from the pump chamber. The screen basket is avail able in a variety of mesh sizes.

    We have been producing Aqua-Pilz aerators for more than 30 years. This aerator has proven itself a thousand times over and ensures durability!

  • Aqua Wheel – Model 1, 0.25 kW

    Model 1 - Surface aerationThe Aqua-Wheel aerator is available in a variety of sizes to suit individual requirements. Common to all sizes is the exceptionally buoyant float. With Aqua-Wheel, we have made ease of use a priority. Aqua-Wheel is relatively lightweight, so making it easy to install in the desired position.

    Practical carrying handles are moulded directly onto the sides of the float. Fastening and anchoring could not be easier. This can be achieved either by means of a fastening rope in the form of a V, or by a single rope attachment, or even by a locking mechanism on rods. This allows for assembly and dismantling on your pond.

    Materials

    Aqua-Wheel is driven with a high quality, slow running electric motor (IP55). The motor is mounted above the water surface. Power from the motor is transmitted by a simple tooth belt drive (except the 0.25 kW, where a gear motor is used). This results in reliable operation, long life and minimal energy consumption. The wheels are connected to a one-piece stainless steel shaft held by sealed ball-bearings. For the mountings, shafts and screws, only stainless steel is used. The float and the motor cover are made of robust, UV-resistant polyethylene.

    The paddle wheel has been specially developed for aeration function, maximising both the transfer of oxygen, and the dispersal of waste gases. The shape of the wheel and the paddles guarantee optimum water circulation and distribution with minimum power requirements. Its design creates a powerful current, making this aerator especially valuable where flow is required. The paddles are robust and durable, and can be replaced quickly and easily. Aqua-Wheel is supplied ready to use, complete with cable and motor-protection-device.

  • Aqua Jet

    Aqua Jet pond aerationAqua-Jet has a directable jet fountain, and creates a strong flow in the pond. Aqua-Jet is very easy to deploy and install. A fixed installation is unnecessary, as it is only required to anchor the aerator (using ropes or chains) to stop it drifting away (against the directional outlet).

    The robust submersible pump generates a powerful flow with excellent oxygen transfer. This water circulation strips waste gases from the water, including carbon dioxide, and thus dis courages algae. The angle of discharge (trajectory) of the water jet is adjustable according to the desired flow, size of the pond and stock of fish.

    The robust submersible motor has a uniquely designed mechanism that gives very high efficiency; low electrical consumption but high power output. The motor shaft is made of high-grade stainless steel, and twin impellers are directly mounted onto it. The arrangement of the axial flow impellers is virtually clog-free. A narrow screen option is avail able for use in fry ponds. The stainless submersible motor is always in the water and constantly cooled during use. This guarantees a long life and maintenance-free operation. Aqua-Jet is suitable for almost every relatively long pond (whether a canal or raceway) or large and square ponds.

    With the aerator suitably positioned, a good flow and thorough circulation of the water can soon be achieved. This is especially important to distribute the oxygenenriched water throughout the whole pond or lake. Otherwise, putrefaction can become established in stagnant and oxygen-deficient areas. This can result in the death of many different organisms (including fish), bad smells and the accelera tion of silt deposition.

    Aqua-Jet draws water from deep, and consequently draws up and circulates stagnant water. Aqua-Jet comes with a one-year warranty. Aqua-Jet with submersible motor gives good flow and high oxygen enrichment.

  • Turbo Jet with submerged motor

    Turbo Jet with submerged motor - pond aerationWater circulator with air diffuser for better water flow and more oxygen… Turbo-Jet enriches the water with oxygen and keeps it clean.

    Turbo-Jet operates silently below the water surface. The robust submersible motor with its directly driven propeller produces an enormous water circula tion with relatively low energy-consumption. The special action of the high-speed motorised impeller draws in air, breaking it into thousands of small bubbles. These fine bubbles are injected into and entrained in the water current where they have a long dwell time. This improves oxy genation of the water.

    The special water/air bubble jet is directed down into the water at an angle. This mixes the whole volume and prevents the formation of dead spots.

    Thus, vital oxygen is distributed around the water, benefitting fish and microbes alike.

    Despite this great circulation, Turbo-Jet is virtually silent in operation.

    Fish are protected from the impeller by a cage screen, which is effectively self cleaning in operation due to the powerful
    water flow along it.

    Turbo-Jet can easily be used even in winter when the powerful water circulation will hinder or reduce the formation of ice. In very low minus temperatures, the air supply can be interrupted.

    The motor housing is made from cast steel or stainless steel. Other materials used are stainless steel and polyethylene. Turbo-Jet – the flexible and economical water circulator and oxygenator.
