Aeration Systems (Air Contact Assembly)
Aeration systems are primarily used for mixing air with water using a venturi valve. This aids the oxidisation of certain components in the water. One of the most common uses is to oxidise soluble iron and manganese into soluble hydroxides. Also very effective with hydrogen sulphide and Filox media filtration.
The positioning and sizing of the contact assembly is vital for optimum efficiency. This is one piece of equipment that we see regularly in the field, incorrectly installed, sized or set up by other companies.
