OxyMix®

Pure Oxygen Mixer

Since 1969, Aqua-Aerobic Systems, Inc. has led the industry in surface aeration and mixing with thousands of installed units throughout the world. For those wastewater applications that require an efficient means of introducing oxygen into a system, the OxyMix pure oxygen mixer is an economical solution compared to other pure oxygen devices.

Regenerative Mixing Pattern of OxyMix®

The regenerative mixing pattern of the OxyMix pure oxygen mixer provides top-to-bottom mixing of the biomass and even distribution of oxygen (see illustration to the right). The proprietary gas injection device (GID) is designed to ensure oxygen is disseminated throughout the bulk liquid. The GID injects oxygen at multiple points below the unit’s impeller where liquid velocities are highest. The downward liquid movement draws the oxygen down into the basin where it has the maximum residence time for efficient oxygen transfer.
