Aerators

Aeration is a unit process where air and water are brought into close contact. The main purpose of aeration is to remove dissolved gases like carbon dioxide, and to oxidize dissolved metals, for instance iron. Aeration can also be used to get rid of volatile organic chemicals in the water. Mitchell Lewis & Staver offer two basic type of aeration via our Landia line: Combined mixer/aerator and Venturi AirJet systems.

The combined mixer/aerator is submerged in tanks or lagoons and work this way: The fast-revolving propeller create a strong vacuum immediately behind itself, which leads to atmospheric air (or pure oxygen) being drawn down through a pipe. The injected air is mixed with the liquid while the liquid in the tank/lagoon is being mixed.

The Venturi AirJet system consists of one or two venturi nozzles which are connected to the well known Landia chopper pump. When the pump is running, the liquid is drawn into the pump’s knife system, where any lumps are chopped into pieces. The liquid is then pressed out through the mixing nozzle under high pressure. This creates a strong vacuum inside the ejector which draws atmospheric air (or pure oxygen) down through a pipe. The injected air is mixed with the liquid while the liquid in the tank/lagoon is macerated and mixed.

Our aerator lines include: Landia.
