With thousands of units in operation around the world, Tornado subsurface aerators have a proven record of maximizing performance while minimizing energy consumption.
From extended aeration and activated sludge processes to lagoons and oxidation ditch applications, TORNADO® subsurface aerators deliver excellent oxygen transfer and high mixing efficiency to a wide range of wastewater treatment processes in any climate. This unique product mixes and aerates all or part of a basin.
The Tornado aerator is available in two main versions:
Other options include:
We’ve added to the line with our energy-saving SMARTAERATOR™ TORNADO® surface aerator. This plug-and-play technology automatically regulates aeration levels and remotely monitors the performance of our rugged, reliable Tornado aerator. Tackle the harshest wastewater environments using SmartAerator for optimal and cost-effective aeration and mixing.
This proprietary technology system uses controls, sensors, and variable-frequency drives to significantly reduce the energy required to aerate wastewater.
SmartAerator can be sold as a retrofit kit, or with new Tornado aerators. Significant energy savings can be seen particularly with projects that require high-horsepower aerators and projects with multiple aerators. We anticipate the payback period for a typical installation to be approximately two years or less.
The AQUA TORNADO® is a float-mounted, freshwater aeration device that features a large-diameter stationary draft tube with unrestricted air intake and a large propeller.
This self-contained unit requires no additional blowers, pumps, or mounting platforms. The Aqua Tornado has water-lubricated lower bearings for use in water reservoirs and lakes where grease-lubricated submerged bearings are prohibited.
Aeration quietly occurs just below the surface with no spraying or splashing, reducing odors. The Aqua Tornado is ideally suited for ponds 4 to 15 feet (1.2- 4.6m) in depth. Aqua Tornado injects air into the water at a high velocity at the open propeller hub.
Effective in all seasons, the aerator maintains large, ice-free areas in winter operations. Two- and 3-horsepower units are available.
