Compressors and vacuum pumps for environmental applications

Pond Aeration pumps and compressors

Pumping air bubbles into a pond or lake increases the oxygen concentration of the water, thus preventing it from becoming stagnant. Aeration also ensures suitable living conditions for aquatic life in places lacking in oxygen. For this pond aeration process, a compressor is used to pump air via a diffuser into the water.

Depending on your water aeration requirements, we offer a variety of optimal products, such as Thomas WOB-L piston pumps, linear pumps, and rotary vane pumps. These solutions meet or exceed industry guidelines for both submersible aerating and sub-surface aerating, thus protecting lakes and ponds for many years.

Sewage Aeration pumps

Sewage aeration systems are used to control wastewater in homes. Wastewater from the household enters a compartment where air is introduced to begin the growth of aerobic organisms. The organisms convert the waste organic materials into gases and other microbial cell material. Besides supplying oxygen, the air pump mixes the contents of the aeration zone to ensure optimum exposure of microorganisms to waste materials. Effluent may be discharged to a ditch or drain field, depending on local regulations. If a home aeration system fails, it is often due to the failure of the air pump.
