Operation of the Aqua-Jet Aerator®
The Aqua-Jet aerator is a mechanical direct-drive unit designed to provide optimum oxygen transfer in a variety of municipal and industrial wastewater applications. The performance of the Aqua-Jet also provides the mixing necessary to uniformly disperse oxygen and organic matter within the microbial population.
Basin water is pumped up into the intake cone and through the volute, and is dispersed through the diffusion head in a spray pattern. Oxygenation occurs at two critical points, when the water exits the diffusion head and when the spray enters the water surface.
