  • Kasco Marine Surface Aerators

    Kasco Marine Surface Aerators are a reliable way to increase and maintain oxygen levels when bottom aeration is not desirable. Benefits Kasco Marine Surface Aerators are a reliable means of increasing and maintaining oxygen levels in fish farms where bottom aeration is not recommended. Some situations necessitate maintaining thermal stratification. If you wish to keep trout, this is a good solution to keep them healthy and the water cool enough for their needs, even during the mid-summer heat waves. Kasco Surface Aerators are designed to move a large volume of water with minimal cost.  By fragmenting water into fine droplets, Kasco aerators promote the exchange of gases at the water's surface. The result is an increase in dissolved oxygen levels, resulting in a reduction of the new sediments and assimilable nutrients that are usually responsible for algae growth.Stirs a large quantity of water, maximizing the water's exposure to the air in order to best exchange gases.   Technical Specifications Includes a protective screen to prevent debris from entering the engine, as well as a float and nylon cables for anchoring. Commercial Aquaculture: Increases the amount of oxygen while the fish are feeding, increasing the potential quantity of fish per pond. Helps the evacuation of gases such as carbon dioxide Increases water quality in agricultural irrigation ponds Can be used for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment Can be used for aerating private ponds Easy installation Can be used in salt water Shallow or deep water operation Standard Aeration Efficiency (SAE), independent test results from Auburn University: 3.0 lbs of oxygen transferred by HP Can be converted into use as a decorative fountain 2 years warranty  Aerators from 2 HP to 5 HP also available in 3 phases, contact us for a quote.   Accessories often bought together Optional control box for surface aerators are also available.

  • Piccolo Air Diffuser

    Our expertise in aeration comes from our many years of experience in the field of air diffusion technologies. This small diffuser requires little pressure to operate. We are the only retailer in Canada to offer the Piccolo diffuser. Benefits The piccolo is a small diffuser requiring little pressure to operate. It can be placed at different depths depending on the need, ideal for small ponds with little depth or with various depths. Here are the advantages seen when using bottom aeration: Circulation of the entire water column in relation to the depth of the diffuser and the volume of air injected; Elimination of thermal stratification (generally prohibited in the case of natural trout lakes); Increase in dissolved oxygen levels, which stimulates the natural aerobic digestion process, thus reducing the thickness of organic silt and the accumulation of sediment; Prevents fish kills during winter by increasing the oxygen available in their habitat; Reduces mosquito populations; Eliminates foul odors from unwanted gases; Reduces organic bottom sediments by avoiding sediment anoxia; Sequestration of phosphorus in sediments; Preservation of a healthy aquatic ecosystem. Technical Specifications This small diffuser is used in our SAS, Mini-Air and CanadianAir aeration systems. It is very suitable for ponds that are rather round or tank-shaped. Diffuser Type: Ballasted diffuser base using a porous pipe as the diffusion medium.

  • EPDM Membrane Disc Diffuser

    Our expertise in aeration comes from our many years of experience in the field of air diffusion technologies. EPDM membrane disc diffusers are replacement parts for vertex diffusers. Benefits EPDM discs are replacement parts for vertex diffusers. We recommend, however, that you look into the alternative of changing all your diffusers to Piccolos or Robust-Air as they are much more reliable over time. Here are the advantages seen when using bottom aeration: Circulation of the entire water column in relation to the depth of the diffuser and the volume of air injected; Elimination of thermal stratification (generally prohibited in the case of natural trout lakes); Increase in dissolved oxygen levels, which stimulates the natural aerobic digestion process, thus reducing the thickness of organic silt and the accumulation of sediment; Prevents fish kills during winter by increasing the oxygen available in their habitat; Reduces mosquito populations; Eliminates foul odors from unwanted gases; Reduces organic bottom sediments by avoiding sediment anoxia; Sequestration of phosphorus in sediments; Preservation of a healthy aquatic ecosystem. Technical Specifications Each of these durable EPDM diaphragm discs is composed of over 1,000 small perforations that release microbubbles when the compressor pressure tensions the diaphragm. The flexible membrane is automatically cleaned by the micro pulses produced by the compressor that feeds it (not included). The disc never clogs, even at the bottom of the muddiest lakes. Salty, hard, or muddy water is not a problem with this high-performance diffusion disc. Most of the fine bubbles released by this disc are no larger than 0.5 to 1.0 millimeters in diameter. The principle of fine bubbles is of paramount importance for several reasons: they offer a large air/water exchange surface for better oxygen diffusion; they rise very slowly to the surface and stay longer in the water than large bubbles and finally they produce a more intense water movement. These discs are perfect to be added to existing systems. You will be surprised how your old compressor will run more smoothly while consuming less energy for more air injected into the water. Ideal diffusion system for ponds or lakes that have very steep slopes or very deep-water bodies. Diffuser Type: 7'' or 9'' round disc, depending on the choice, working with a flexible EPDM membrane. CFM: 0.5 - 3 cfm for 7" disks, 0.5 - 6 cfm for 9" disks Bubble size: Fine Minimum pressure: 0.5 to 0.6 psi

  • Robust-Air Diffuser

    Our expertise in aeration comes from our many years of experience in the field of air diffusion technologies. This diffuser is ideal for ponds of various depths. Benefits The Robust-Air is a low pressure diffuser. Ideal for ponds with one or two deep spots. Allows you to aerate a fairly circular area. It is most effective when covering a small area and becomes less effective as the area gets larger. Here are the advantages seen when using bottom aeration: Circulation of the entire water column in relation to the depth of the diffuser and the volume of air injected; Elimination of thermal stratification (generally prohibited in the case of natural trout lakes); Increase in dissolved oxygen levels, which stimulates the natural aerobic digestion process, thus reducing the thickness of organic silt and the accumulation of sediment; Prevents fish kills during winter by increasing the oxygen available in their habitat; Reduces mosquito populations; Eliminates foul odors from unwanted gases; Reduces organic bottom sediments by avoiding sediment anoxia; Sequestration of phosphorus in sediments; Preservation of a healthy aquatic ecosystem. Technical Specifications Kasco diffusers are designed to produce fine air bubbles with minimal pressure. The base of the Robust-Aire diffuser is made of stainless steel. Its design keeps the diffuser at an optimal level above the pond bottom. The fittings are durable and bolted to ensure that the weighted hose does not come loose during installation or maintenance of the diffuser. A non-return valve with Viton seals prevents water from entering the pipe when the system is not in operation. Diffuser Type: Ballasted diffuser base using a porous pipe as the diffusion medium. CFM: 1 to 3.5 Bubble size: Medium to fine Minimum pressure: No restrictions Price: Buy online or contact us. Robust-Aire Diffuser Manual Assembly (PDF)

Custom-made legs available upon request.(**) Several OctoAir-10 can be stacked one on top of the other to facilitate transportation on pallets. (***) Unit manufactured in SS316 is also available upon request. Tech Sheet  OctoAir (PDF)   The OctoAir-60 was designed and developed specifically for large scale aeration and industrial de-icing projects. With an air flow rate of up to 75 CFM, 300 feet of ¾” Bubble Tubing® contained in the structure of the OctoAir-60 allows for greater oxygen transfer performance. The diffuser is designed to allow for feeding air into the ¾” Bubble Tubing® from both ends. Applications that require a diffuser of industrial strength, corrosion resistance, easy manoeuvrability, and high efficiency will be well served with the OctoAir-60.   Operation and Safety Compressed air is pushed through airline feeder hose to the OctoAir™ diffuser. Microbubbles are simultaneously released through the microscopic holes along the entire length of Bubble Tubing®. The constant release of fine bubbles allow for a high oxygen transfer rate in water while creating a significant ascending current that moves warmer and denser water upwards against the inner ice above. The OctoAir also modifies the water's density by introducing more air. This reduction in density, due to the regular output of bubbles, produces an optimal warm water circulation and thus helps melt the ice.  In situations in which the OctoAir is already in place, it presents a reliable and efficient prevention of ice accumulation, even in the coldest of temperatures. There are no moving parts in the water, which is very efficient and cost effective.Please check with the authorities to make sure that adding de-icers is authorized in your municipality. The thin ice and open area should be well marked out with a sign to warn people of danger in winter. This is to be done with every type of de-icer and defroster.Cleaning your diffusers:  OctoAirs require Bio-Purge to clean the diffuser once per year, depending on water conditions. The diffuser remains in the water for the duration of the cleaning, as the Bio-Purge is poured into the airline hose from the compressor. Maintenance has never been easier! Security Check with local authorities to ensure that the addition of de-icers is permitted in your municipality. The de-icing area should be clearly marked with a sign to warn anyone of the danger. For use with all types of de-icing systems. Click here to purchase the thin ice sign.   Case Study The purpose of a case study is to examine a specific instance or situation in its natural context, by examining real-world cases, researchers can refine or challenge established theoretical frameworks.  Case Study : Deicing in a Retention Basin to Increase Water Availability in Mining.

We also strongly recommend clients purchase a compressor cabinet from us versus rigging up a home made alternative. Our cabinets are safe, well ventilated, secure, and provide noise reduction.  Contact us if you have any doubts about which model to choose! Technical Specifications Rocking Piston Compressors Twenty years ago, it was rare to see anyone using the rocking piston compressor (also called oscillating piston compressor) for aeration of ponds and lakes. Gradually they became the heart and soul of aquatic aeration systems. Rocking piston compressors operate without oil, are economical, powerful and efficient. They are divided into 2 groups: single piston and double piston compressors. The single piston is ¼HP or ⅓HP, while the double piston is ½ HP or ¾ HP. The air pressure is 25 to 50 psi or 1.72 bar to 3.45 bar. As a general rule of thumb, the more pressure the compressor develops, the less air flow is available. The air flow rate is between 2 and 8 CFM, or 0.06m³-0.23m³ per minute. The common brands are Thomas and Gast, but they can now be found on the market under different names such as: Sweetwater, Brockwood, Matala, Stratus and Tech-Aire reciprocating compressors. They all share the same principle of operation and work perfectly with many types of diffusers.These compressors are sold in Kasco Marine's Robust-Aire systems and are also used in CanadianAir Aeration systems.Piston Compressor Data Sheet (PDF) Teich-Aire owner's manual (PDF)  Warranty : 3 years Warranty is void if: The compressor is not maintained properly according to the maintenance recommendations supplied in this manual.

  • Electromagnetic Diaphragm Compressors (Secoh)

    Secoh JDK compressors are perfect for small ponds (6 ft deep max), small basins and septic tanks. Benefits Electromagnetic diaphragm compressors are often referred to as linear air pumps. Most people would recognize them as aquarium air pumps; they look like a toaster. They use an electromagnetic system that oscillates the diaphragm and creates a steady flow of air. They are simple but very durable and this is the quietest way to create air pressure. But silence brings limitations and they provide no more than 4-5 PSI pressure for larger models and most operate at a maximum of 2-3 PSI. With the right type of air diffuser, they are ideal for shallow water gardens. We have sold many diaphragm pumps over the years and the most common comment that comes up is that people are drawn to their quiet operation. However, they can sometimes be wrong about the true depth of their water basins. Picking the wrong compressor can lead to its diaphragms wearing out faster and causing it to break constantly.
