The 5.3AF 3 Phase High Oxygen Transfer Aerator (also called pond aerator) is designed to withstand the rigors of commercial aquaculture operations, industrial applications, and municipal waste water plants. The pond aerator dramatically agitates high volumes of water at the surface to maximize exposure of water to the air for valuable gas exchange, greatly improving your pond or lake aeration. Typical applications include commercial aquaculture, agricultural ponds, industrial plants, municipal waste water and backyard ponds. This unit is typically selected for surface aeration when a decorative fountain pattern is neither necessary nor desired.
The pond aerator is self-contained, lightweight unit that floats at the surface with a single power cord returning to shore and three mooring lines anchoring the unit. The unit is easily installed and maintained by a single person and have proven to be an excellent choice for both continuous duty pond or lake aeration and supplemental aeration for unique applications.
The 5.3AF 3 Phase High Oxygen Transfer Aerator is available with or without a float (call for details on purchasing without float). The control panel, it is supplied with a simple to use, all inclusive GFI protected 3 phase control panel, model CF-3235. Without the confusing options, this panel includes all the best features. Included in this UL-508A, non-metallic 4x/3r panel is a true, 3 phase rated personnel protection GFI with a 30ma trip level. Also included is a motor starter with adjustable overload, lightning/surge protection, 24 hour time clock for the unit, and a Hand-Off-Auto switch. Other features are an angled field wiring terminal block for easy installation, input terminals for field installed interlock, and startup instructions with wiring diagram in the door. A licensed electrician should install this control panel.
Longer power cord is available. Please, call for more information.
