With the Eco Aeration products, Aeromix has been successful in expanding its product line and enabling customers to reduce chemical costs, and eliminate electrical installation costs. These products are completely powered by solar energy and are used in several applications such as ponds, lakes and reservoirs for algae and odor control, aeration, digesting bottom sludge, and fish kill prevention.
Most often, nearly 50 percent of utility bills in water and wastewater treatment plants go toward operation and maintenance of aeration equipment. Aeromix has taken a proactive initiative to provide customers an ultimate solution that has the ability to demonstrate measurable returns through savings in energy bills.
“In a mature aeration equipment market, characterized by lower prices, little technological advancement, and enhanced competition Aeromix has pioneered a product that stands out for its efficiency and customer value,” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Shilpa Tiku. “The efficiency of the Eco Aeration product line has been demonstrated during its implementation in the Paradise Valley Golf course, in Arkansas, which resulted in an algae-free pond and energy cost savings by aerating with 8 Hp instead of 10 Hp.”
The first-of-its-kind Eco Aeration product line features a comprehensive line of water quality management products. The LumenAER™ solar-powered circulator distributes low-oxygen water from the bottom and exposes it to the surface for rapid oxygenation and distribution. It can be used for a variety of applications such as treating odors, excessive chemical use, and other water quality issues that affect storm water, leachate, wastewater ponds, and lakes. The SunAER™ solar-powered diffused air system adds air bubbles to water or wastewater, increasing the dissolved oxygen content. The system brings oxygen to the bottom of the pond to decompose muck, dead plants, and other waste materials, and is recommended for depths greater than 10 feet, as its efficiency improves with depth of the water body.
Aeromix’s SolarAER™ solar-powered surface aerator provides powerful pumping action that transfers oxygen, and provides horizontal water circulation. Float-mounted on the water surface, the aerator injects air at a high velocity beneath the water surface without spraying or splashing. It is ideally suited for lakes with 4 to 15 feet deep to minimize algal growth, eliminate odors, improve water quality, increase dissolved oxygen concentration, and stimulate decomposition of organic wastes and runoff nutrients from surrounding green areas. The AuraAER™ solar-powered floating fountain is an environment friendly alternative to conventional fountain powered by electricity. It pumps water into the air, thereby increasing gas transfer within the pond and improving water quality by minimizing algal growth, and reducing odor while maintaining the aesthetic appeal of the pond. Finally, the PhotonAER™ solar-powered submersible aspirating aerator adds and horizontally mixes the oxygen at the bottom of the lake or pond, reduces odor, and operates quietly without spraying or splashing. It is ideal for shallow waters, with a minimum depth of 2 feet.
“By providing a complete product line that addresses the needs and concerns of its customers, Aeromix has been able to outperform its competitors in the market,” concludes Tiku. “Besides its demonstrated leadership in pioneering technologically innovative solutions and producing superior quality products for its customers, the company is also investing in developing newer technologies that are powered on renewable energy sources.”
Apart from its diversified product portfolio to meet the needs of the industry, the company has a sound and skilled workforce on a nationwide international reach. The company continues to invest heavily in research and development efforts. Having done some of the largest aeration and water packaging projects in the world, Aeromix is focusing on developing nations.
