Air Processing

Aquaculture, also known as fish or shellfish farming, refers to the breeding, rearing, and harvesting of plants and animals in all types of water environments including ponds, rivers, lakes, and the ocean. Researchers and aquaculture producers are “farming” a variety of freshwater and marine species of fish, shellfish, and plants.

Blowers are used extensively for aeration in the abalone farming industry.

Aerators are various devices used for aeration or mixing air with another substance, such as soil or water. These devices are used to add oxygen to the water. Aeration brings water and air in close contact in order to remove dissolved gases (such as carbon dioxide) and oxidizes dissolved metals such as iron, hydrogen sulfide, and volatile organic chemicals.

The aim of Aqua farmers is to maximize production and profits by minimizing risks. Aerators offer the most immediate and prompt solutions for quality management and oxygen deficiency. In aquaculture each species is habituated to different living conditions during their evolution, the species which live in fast-flowing and oxygen-rich streams need high quantities of oxygen, and a small change or decrease of dissolved oxygen can cause complete loss of the species. Aeration removes the chemicals such as Ammonia, Chlorine, Carbon dioxide, Methane, Hydrogen Sulfide, Iron, and Manganese which affect the ponds in Aquaculture.

The main purpose of aerators is to provide oxygen and mix to disperse oxygen throughout the pond.  When selecting aerators it is a very important element to be considered in oxygen dispersion. It involves both subsurface circulation and oxygenation, to create a destratified pond environment. The concept is very much important as it leads to increased size, increased survival, and increased profit. For species like shrimp that live in the bottom of the pond, oxygen distribution to the bottom layer of the pond is a necessity. Mixing and distribution of oxygen results in less wastage of feed at the bottom of the ponds, enabling clean and risk-free diseases.
