VARI-CANT® Jet Aeration Systems Brochure

Submerged jet aeration systems have traditionally been designed with their nozzles discharging horizontally, usually no more than two feet off the reactor basin floor. Consequently, air blowers are required to operate against a static pressure nearly equal to the basin’s total depth.

VARI-CANT jet aeration systems are designed to be mounted higher, usually 2 to 4 feet (0.76 meters to 1.2 meters) above the basin floor. By mounting the nozzles at this higher level, significant savings in blower horsepower can be realized, thus cutting power costs.
