Providing bottom-diffused aeration in shallow ponds and lakes can provide a unique challenge to pond owners. Less water depth means smaller plate coverage, which usually translates to bigger, more expensive, multi-plate systems. The Airmax Shallow Water Series Aeration Systems utilizes multiple plates to provide evenly distributed aeration in shallow water applications without forcing pond owners into large cost-prohibitive aeration units. Designed specifically for use in shallow water, the Shallow Water Series SW40 Aeration System aerates a pond up to 1/2 surface acre at 6 ft. deep.
The Airmax Composite Cabinet houses and protects the SilentAir Compressor from outdoor elements. An integrated cooling system utilizes a ventilation fan with rain shroud and high-density air intake pre-filter to distribute air evenly throughout the cabinet keeping the interior components clean, cool and dry. An elevated base protects the aeration hardware and electrical components from flooding and rainwater accumulation while the removable top ensures quick and easy access for inspection and maintenance. Every Airmax Composite Cabinet comes complete with a pre-wired electrical box and 6 ft. power cord to provide power to the enclosed cooling fan and aeration compressor and is ETL Listed. The Airmax Composite Cabinet comes with a lifetime warranty on the cabinet and a 2-year warranty on electrical components.
The heart and soul of each Shallow Water Series Aeration System is the powerful, yet energy efficient, SilentAir LR Series Linear Diaphragm Compressor. It pushes oxygen through your pond while remaining whisper-quiet. Each compressor has a 2-year warranty and is fitted with an integrated Manifold with Ball Valves to simplify airflow-management and is mounted on vibration reducing rubber feet to ensure quiet operation. Each airline is equipped with Quick Disconnects for easy system removal and storage.
Designed for maximum oxygen uptake, the ProAir2 Weighted Diffuser incorporates high-efficiency low-maintenance membrane sticks to release tiny oxygen bubbles into the water column. Membrane diffusers posses the synergy of air stones without the headaches of cracking and acid-washing. The ProAir2 Weighted Diffuser has an integrated check valve to prevent backpressure on the compressor. The innovative sled design keeps the ProAir2 submerged while maintaining an upright position during installation and comes with a 5 year warranty.
