What is a static aerator?
A static aerator is a high-performance aeration and mixing solution for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment projects.
The Ecoprocess static aerator (formerly known as Atara) features a rotomoulded design, pre-moulded piping attachments, and a flexible base that absorbs vibrations.
Enlarged orifices prevent clogging and, thanks to our unique triple-venturi assembly, you maximize each unit’s coverage area without increasing your project's energy costs.
Best of all, our static aerator is built to last. It resists premature fouling and needs no maintenance, giving you high-quality performance that you can count on.
Where are our static aerators used?
The Ecoprocess static aerator is most often a solution for:
- municipal and industrial treatment plants
- agri-food processing plants
- lagoon improvements
- upgrades to faulty aeration systems
How do our static aerators work?
A centralized air supply forces air through pipes and into the intake assembly at the bottom of the Ecoprocess static aerator.
The intake assembly contains three venturi systems. They constrict incoming air, increasing its velocity and creating an area of low pressure around the nozzle inlet.
This pressure differential generates a strong downward flow that sweeps wastewater into the bottom of the aerator.
Inside the aerator, wastewater mixes with injected air before being discharged as lateral streams of coarse bubbles. These powerful streams reliably aerate and mix a wide radius inside the lagoon, tank, or basin.
