FLOATING DIRECT-DRIVE AERATORS

PERFORMANCE & DURABILITY

EPIC floating direct-drive high-speed stainless steel aerators are designed with performance and durability in mind. The EPIC structural components provide both strength and enhanced performance in our floating high-speed aerators.

CONSTRUCTION WITH A PURPOSE 

The unique "C" shaped​ radial beam stiffens the unit and distributes the operating loads while providing hydraulic channeling of the pumped liquid.

The swirling mass of liquid is straightened as it exits from the deflector, changing the trajectory of the liquid to a flatter dispersion pattern. This lower trajectory reduces aerosols and misting. The radial beams act to deflect the rotational forces of the emerging liquid, resulting in a stable float.

SERVICEABILITY

Difficult to reach below water cross vane stabilizers are not needed, thus eliminating underwater catch points for debris.

EPIC Aerator Features & Benefits

  • Floating aerators work in conjunction with mixers, providing a cost-effective solution to wastewater treatment with minimal maintenance.

  • These high-speed aerators have stainless steel construction with no concentrated load points.

  • The float construction has no possible leaking points caused by bolt or other penetrations through the stainless steel skin.

  • There are no structural castings with the potential for hidden gas and sand hole porosity, which would result in stress concentrations and unexpected imbalance.

  • These direct-drive aerators have internal hardpoints which reinforce and stiffen the float and volute tubes.

  • Always welded in accordance with the requirements of AWS standards.

  • Made with radial C-Beam construction for load distribution, rigid construction, and improved liquid dispersion.

  • Propellers are NIBRAL, dynamically balanced, and weedless.

  • Floats are injection-filled with 2.25 to 2.50 pcf density closed cell polyurethane foam.

  • Aerators have standard stand-off power cable support brackets and 100% reserve buoyancy factor.
