Surface Aerators

Surface Aerators for wastewater lagoons, stormwater ponds & aquaculture 

Kasco-Marine-SurfaceAerators for ponds, lagoons, emergency aeration and more

Surface aerators are powerful units that float on the surface of any body of water and rely on mechanical propulsion to push water above the surface. This continuous pushing and moving of water into the air helps to add large amounts of oxygen (around 3.0 lbs. of O2 per HP) into the water. This process oxygenates the water to increases the aquatic health of the system and prevents stagnant water. Surface aerators are available in various sizes (HP). Small, and efficient units ranging from 1/2-5 HP are readily used in smaller ponds & lagoons, and aquaculture operations. Larger and more powerful units (5-20 HP) are commonly used for rigorous industrial applications, such as mining wastewater ponds and pulp and paper mill effluent ponds.

 

Aquatic Engineering Canada offers a premium selection of surface aerators ranging from 1/2HP to 20HP in size. With various sizes available we can provide surface aeration solutions to jobs of any size.

We carry brands including Kasco Marine and Outdoor Water Solution aerators to get the job done. We've relied on these dependable North American-made units for years to aerate industrial wastewater ponds, municipal stormwater ponds, commercial aquaculture operations, and more.

Kasco Marine AF-Series Surface Aerators

Residential, Commercial & Industrial Aeration for Lagoons, Holding Ponds & Lakes 

EFFICIENT/LOW-POWER USE

Kasco surface aerators feature the highest efficiency design to ensure low power consumption. This attention to efficiency combined with lower monthly power bills, low maintenance, and a very affordable initial purchase price allows our surface aerators to have a very low total cost of ownership.

RUGGED MOTOR

Manufactured with robust components ensures the most dependable unit motor on the market. Featuring hard-face internal mechanical seals for leak protection, long-life top and bottom ball bearings, and environmentally friendly mineral oil lubrication for excellent heat dissipation.

CORROSION RESISTANT

These units thrive in corrosive and saltwater environments. All external metal, motor, and hardware components are of stainless steel composition and protected by a sacrificial zinc anode. Units with stainless steel tops and double mechanical seals are available for harsher environments.

LOW MAINTENANCE

Kasco surface aerators are maintained by simply cleaning the motor housing once or twice per year and replacing the sacrificial zinc anode when visibly corroded.
