Floating Brush Aerators

Floating Brush Aerators are ideally suited for operation in municipal sewage treatment lagoons, especially shallow lagoon applications where vertical shaft-type aerators cannot operate.

In a lagoon Floating Brush Aerators move the wastewater horizontally and create a circular flow pattern to prevent short-circuiting, and maximising lagoon treatment capacity. The horizontal mixing circulates highly oxygenated water throughout the lagoon, creating an oxygen cap to reduce odours from anaerobic breakdown of settled sludge.

The effective mixing provided by Floating Brush Aerators is also useful to create mixed conditions to minimise algal growth, and to redistribute accumulated sludge more evenly over the entire floor/base of the lagoon, thus improving lagoon treatment capacity & performance.

Floating Brush Aerators are also suitable for aeration in oxidation ditches, Pasveer channels, SBRs, equalization basins and aerobic digesters of all sizes and configurations.

Advantages

  • High aeration and mixing efficiency
  • Robust design for harsh operating environments
  • Ease of installation & operation
  • Low & simple maintenance

Low Speed Aerators

MAK Water offers a full line of OEM clarifier and thickener drive units, direct “bolt-in” retrofit drives, low speed mechanical aerators, industrial mixers and rotary distributor mechanisms for the water and wastewater industry.

Our aerators are suited for Oxidation Ditches, and other activated sludge processes, as well as lagoon-based systems.

The aerator uses a planetary gearbox to drive the aerator impeller or rotor. This mass-produced gearbox offers an excellent power/cost ratio. The gearbox is uniquely mounted directly in the aerator rotor.

 

Mechanical features include:

  • Gears

  • Bearings

  • Lubrication

  • Gearbox Housing

  • Electric Motor

  • Corrosion Prevention

Aeration & Mixing

Wastewater Aeration Mixing Process

Wastewater aeration is the process of adding and mixing air to the wastewater to allow aerobic biodegradation of the pollutant components, and this process is an important part of all biological wastewater treatment systems. Wastewater aeration is different to other treatment processes such as chemical treatments, which use chemicals to react and stabilise contaminants in the wastewater.

Contact Us

At MAK Water, we provide two different types of aerators, depending on your aeration and mixing requirements. For more information on our process, or to find out more about our wastewater aeration and mixing products, contact us today on 1300 669 032.
