Aeration is essential to a healthy aquatic environment. With proper aeration, a phenomenon called bio-dredging may occur. Organic sediments are consumed by the available bacteria, and bio-dredging takes place.

Fine Bubble Aeration Diffusers

The fine bubbles (also called micro bubbles) from aeration systems are critical for achieving results whether oxygenating a wastewater treatment plant, using aeration to control excess nutrients such as Phosphorous (P) or controlling gas such as Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S). Fine bubble aeration can also be used for liquid mixing.

Fine bubbles

Not only do bubbles transfer oxygen, but they also move and mix, clarify and de-stratify and may decontaminate water by oxidation. The size of the bubble matters greatly for the application where finer bubbles lead to higher oxygen transfer. Deiceair.ca offers a range of aeration diffusers such as Bubble Tubing® and OctoAir™. These diffusers perform optimally under different environmental conditions and for various applications. Contact us for inspiration and sound advice. Our proposals respect operating budgets, timelines and desired air transfer results.

Bottom Aerators Versus Surface Aerators

Some applications may require surface aerators and circulators, such as fish farming, where de-stratifying the water column is not desired. However, we can provide bottom aeration which only targets the hypolimnion. The importance of choosing bottom versus surface aerators is that the oxygen transfer rate is usually higher. Also as bubbles break the surface tension, oxygen found in the atmosphere can be transferred to exposed water. We can help you decide which system is best for your application.

As aeration specialists, we use the best components to design our complete aeration systems. We know the strengths and limitations of the products we sell. We are aware of how to combine parts for optimal performance under vastly different environmental conditions. And every system we sell is tested by us so what you see in a CanadianAir™ Aeration Systems is simply the best on the market, from the industrial grade diffusers to the compressor as well as other components such as tubing, connectors, etc. With our name behind the CanadianAir™ Aeration Systems, you are assured of a quality system that will reach your goals, and that is backed by the best after sales service you can find. We honour all parts and warranties, in addition to being able to do in house repairs.

Bubble Tubing®

Fine bubble diffusers such as our Bubble Tubing® produce many tiny air bubbles (less than 1 mm in diameter). Tiny bubbles rise steadily from the floor of a wastewater treatment basin or the bottom of waterways and canals, ponds, lakes or lagoons. These bubbles provide substantial and efficient mass transfer of oxygen into the water. This oxygen, combined with the food source, sewage or sediment, allows naturally occurring bacteria to produce enzymes. Enzymes help break down waste or sediment made of accumulated organic matter.

Fine bubbles

The size of the bubble matters greatly for the application as we have noticed in our work. The fine bubbles (microbubbles) are critical for achieving precise results whether oxygenating a wastewater treatment plant, using aeration to biologically remove excess nutrients, or using aeration for fluid mixing. Deicing and air bubble curtains applications that rely more on mixing and moving water also benefit from billions upon billions of microbubbles produced by Bubble Tubing®. Not only do bubbles transfer oxygen and decontaminate water by oxidation, but they also move and mix, clarify, and de-stratify water. Thus the same technology has many diverse applications.

What sets Bubble Tubing® apart from other linear diffusers?

Our Bubble Tubing® has very high SAE (Standard Aeration Efficiency), SOTR (Standard Oxygen Transfer Rate), SOTE (Standard Oxygen Transfer Efficiency) performance ratings. The Bubble Tubing® linear air diffuser has two opposite rows of fine holes 1.3 cm (1/2″) apart along the entire length of the tubing. Some of our clients expect that drilling holes in a polyethylene hose will give similar performance results as our Bubble Tubing®. Others think soaker hose purchased in a hardware store is a similar product, not so. Here is what we know about our Bubble Tubing®:

Fine bubbles
  • Precision manufacturing means excellent field performance year after year, backed by our 5-year warranty.
  • Aeration holes maintain their geometry after thousands of hours of performance. Cost savings due to high performance and low maintenance is impressive.
  • The Bubble Tubing® bubbles are truly micro-bubbles. The smaller the bubble diameter, the higher oxygen transfer rate. Millions of fine micro-bubbles create a larger surface area to transfer oxygen than fewer larger (coarse) bubbles. Our independent test results attest to this. Quality products going into manufacturing produces quality performance in harsh environments.
  • When it comes to aeration, bigger bubbles do not mean better results, but it can mean higher operational costs.
  • The diffuser is designed specifically to prevent clogging and fouling. Maintenance is extremely low compared to other micro-bubble technology when our parameters are followed and respected.
  • Easy annual cleaning can be done quickly with BioPurge. We recommend this product as it will not change the chemical nature of the tubing material. The tubing stays in the water for cleaning while you save time and labour.

Our aeration systems can be tailored to de-stratify the water body ensuring that oxygen is available at the sediment level for aerobic bacteria to decompose organic matter, and reduce available nutrients in the system. With our aeration system, oxygen is continually available for fish, invertebrates and microbes. The available oxygen helps maintain equilibrium in the system.
