Aqua-Jet® SS-PW

Aqua-Jet® SS-PW

Surface Mechanical Aerator

The Aqua-Jet SS-PW surface aerator is Certified to NSF/ANSI 61 by UL for use in potable water applications. The approval includes 1, 2, 3, 5, 7.5, 10, and 15 HP units designated as model SS-PW and can be utilized for THM stripping applications or circulation in potable water treatment systems and reservoirs with a minimum volume of 100,000 gallons.

THM stripping involves the removal of Trihalomethane (THM), which represents a group of volatile organic compounds formed by the interaction of organic precursors in raw source water and free chlorine added for disinfection.

The Aqua-Jet aerator model SS-PW offers a lower cost aeration solution for THM stripping applications from the perspective of capital, installation and operating cost when compared to diffused aeration or other spray aeration products.

How It Works

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

Fold-a-Float® Option

Surface Mechanical Aerator

The Fold-a-Float® self-deploying, segmented float is a unique, space saving float that replaces the conventional float on Aqua-Aerobic Aqua-Jet® surface aerators and AquaDDM® mixers. This patent pending product folds into a compact, cylindrical arrangement for easy shipping, storage and installation. Once lowered into place, the float self-deploys as it meets the surface water in the tank or basin.

The Fold-a-Float® is ideal for use in potable water applications for THM removal where typical installations have limited access for aeration equipment.
