The OctoAir is an industrial grade diffuser made in Canada for aeration, oxygenation and de-icing. Being resistant to corrosion, deterioration due to pH, temperature, water salinity, and a wide variety of chemicals, it is designed for industries and municipalities. This, composed of a steel support, allows the spiral Bubble® hose to be effectively fixed using an integrated fixing. It comes in two different formats, the OctoAir-10 and the OctoAir-60, both easily manoeuvrable and extremely efficient.The installation teams confirm that the OctoAir diffuser is easy to install, maintain and above all good. designed.

Diffuser OctoAir-10

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. Also, the design of the diffuser allows 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.

Compressed air is pushed through airline feeder hose to the OctoAir™ diffuser. Micro bubbles are simultaneously released through the micro holes along the entire length of Bubble Tubing®. The constant release of fine bubbles allows a high oxygen transfer rate in water while creating a significant water upward movement towards the surface, mixing and circulating liquid as leachate, wastewater or water drinking. There are no moving parts in the water, which is very efficient and cost effective.

Cleaning your diffuser with Bio-Purge (PDF): OctoAir requires Bio-Purge to clean the diffuser once per year depending on water conditions. The diffuser remains in the water for cleaning, as the Bio-Purge is poured in the airline hose from the compressor. Maintenance has never been easier!

In situations where the OctoAir is already in place, it provides reliable and effective prevention of ice build-up, even in the coldest temperatures.

No mechanical or electrical parts come into contact with water, which means reduced operating costs.

Check with the authorities to make sure the addition of de-icers is authorized in your municipality. The ice-free area should be well demarcated with a sign to warn all people of the danger during the winter. For use with all types of de-icer / de-icer systems.
