Airy Gator Water Treatment System
The patent pending Airy-Gator Treatment System was developed to circulate millions of gallons of water per day in directed flows. This treatment platform provides a method to introduce additives or media to remediate and improve water quality.
The Airy-Gator system is a proven approach and can effectively be used to:
- Aid in the decomposition of organics
- Reduce eutrophication
- Destratify the water column
- Revive benthic community
- Improves aquatic habitat
- Reduce odor
- Facilitate additional treatment capabilities
Design and Operation
The Airy-Gator is a floating treatment platform that consists of five urethane disks mounted on a horizontal motorized shaft. The lower portion of the disks are immersed in the water column. As the disks rotate, water is circulated and facilitates destratification, which is key to maintaining a healthy, vibrant aquatic environment.
This system is unique because it forces directional laminar flow, circulating large volumes of water at a rate of roughly an acre-foot per hour. Directional configuration may allow the systems’ circulation effects to be multiplied – as water is moved downstream from the system, upstream water moves to replace it – creating circulation that exceeds the direct pumping rate of the system.
Applications to improve water quality include:
- Private/public ponds
- Municipal & industrial wastewater treatment facilities
- Stormwater retention basins
- Agricultural lagoons
- Contaminated containment areas
