The Lagoon Master is not just another aerator, but it continuously and slowly moves water along the bottom of a lagoon/pond delivering large amounts of dissolved oxygen using minimum energy. It is a two phase system which utilizes two 2 HP (1.5 kW) regenerative blowers. Phase 1, using one of the blowers is the water moving phase, continuously pushing water along the bottom within 1 to 4 acres (depending on water depth) of a pond or lagoon. Phase 2 is a second 2HP (1.5 kW) blower that provides DO at a rate that exceeds other surface or diffused air aeration systems designed for shallow water ponds or lagoons.
The use of this proven aeration technology will:
One 8′ Lagoon Master will move over 9 million gallons of water in a 24 hour period!
The key, and patented, elements of the Lagoon Master is two regenerative blowers, each connected to a set of bubble-forming diffuser grids. The Phase 1 blower (1) runs 24 hours per day and feeds the rear-most diffuser grid (2) which allows large 1-2 cm. bubbles to rise quickly into a 45 degree baffle (3), pushing water at a velocity capable of moving over 9 million gallons (34,100 cu meters) of water per day. These large bubbles stay on the surface for up to 25’ (7.6 meters) in front of the Lagoon Master. When the Phase 2 blower (4) is initiated, either manually or automatically, it feeds air to the industrial diffuser grid (5) located forward of the base of the Lagoon Master. The bubbles emitted from the diffusers are approximately .8 mm in diameter. These small bubbles are kept underwater for up to 35’ (10.7 meters) due to their inability to rise above the larger, faster and horizontally moving bubbles caused by the primary, coarse bubble diffuser. The 25’ to 35’ (7.6 to 10.7 meters) of residence time for the small bubbles, at 1 atmosphere of pressure, allows for oxygen diffusion into the water, providing the addition of continuous increases in dissolved oxygen.
