Traditional aeration methods splash up water in the air using paddles or other devices. When these drops of water come down, they dissolve oxygen in them. In Airoxi™-tube, because oxygen dissolves through small bubbles while they slowly come up, you get more dissolved oxygen.
The Standard Oxygen Transfer Rate (SOTR)– is 3 times that of paddle aerator. Hence Oxygen dissolves 3 times faster than with paddle aerators. For example – if it takes 1 hour to increase the DO from 4 to 5 mg/ L using paddle aerators, this will happen within 20 minutes using AirOxi™ Tube.
The SAE – Standard Aeration Efficiency – is 4 times that of traditional paddle aerator. So power required is almost 25% . If for example you need 20 HP of power for 1 hectare of culture, the power required using AirOxi™ Tube will be just 5 HP.
