Airoxi™-tube is a special tube made from blend of various polymers and additives to give it a unique property of micro holes.
These holes provide a steady stream of bubbles when air is passed through it using a blower. As these bubbles rise, they dissolve some air in the water. This process is called aeration. Oxygen in this air also dissolves in the water. Thus increasing Dissolved Oxygen or DO as it is often called. This dissolved oxygen is critical for survival of marine life. And monitored regularly in aquaculture ponds.
There are various types of aeration devices. Some splash water, some spray water and some diffuse air in the water by making bubbles.However in all these, there is one major difference that decides the amount of aeration that happens – how much surface area is available for contact between water and air. Because this is where oxygen transfer takes place.
In Airoxi™-tube, the bubble rises in the water, and the air comes in contact with the water on all sides. Such high surface area increases oxygen transfer. The smaller the bubbles, the more the surface area available for oxygen transfer. Airoxi™-tube, along with the right blowers and other equipment, ensures good dissolved oxygen, reduces cost, reduces noise and reduces disturbance to marine life.
