Special issue丨Bioclear jet aerator, working principle and field case study


Aerator is a necessary equipment for water supply and drainage aeration and oxygenation, aeration is a means of strong contact between air and water, the purpose of which is to dissolve oxygen in the air in water. It also has some other important functions such as mixing and stirring. Oxygen in the air is transferred to water through aeration, and oxygen is transferred from the gas phase to the liquid phase, which is the theory of mass transfer diffusion.
The specific methods are: reduce the size of bubbles, increase the number of bubbles, improve the disorder of the liquid, increase the installation depth of the aerator, and extend the contact time between the bubbles and the liquid. Aeration equipment is based on this practice and is widely used in sewage treatment, according to the use of methods can be divided into mechanical aeration and blast aeration.
Working principle of 100g jet aerator:
Using the principle of venturi tube, due to the drainage action of the jet near the air suction port to generate negative pressure, the air is sucked in, fully expanded in the negative pressure area, and is beaten into tiny bubbles by the high-speed power fluid, fully mixed in the mixing chamber, converted potential energy in the expansion chamber, and sprayed diagonally downward along the axial direction of the jet into the sewage tank.


Easy to install, energy-saving operation, capable of generating μm microbubbles. Maintenance-free, long service life, service diameter 9m, oxygenation efficiency 28-35%, suitable for deep water aeration.


A few notes:
Retaining wall setting → to prevent cavitation of the pump impeller caused by too many bubbles and too small;
Duct installation height and inclination → Prevent water backfilling caused by downtime;
Set the bracket → the aerator itself does not bear the force and torque (for PP material);
Connect the flange up and down to complete the installation;
After installation, the bottom of the pool is cleaned.
Application example: Before and after renovation
