The heart of any lake-bed, or
bottom-mounted aeration system is often the air compressor itself.
ABI offers a variety of compressors that are quiet, small, energy
efficient and will pump a steady and constant flow of oxygen to
your diffuser system.
The key considerations when deciding
which air pump, compressor or blower (different ways of moving air)
to buy are what volume of air (in cubic feet per minute, cfm) you
need, where the diffusers are located, distance of each diffuser
location from shore and the pressure (in pounds per square inch,
psi) required to supply that volume. Keep in mind it takes 1 psi to
push an air bubble 27" below the surface of water. All air
compressors used for aquatic purposes should be "oil-less".
Electrical costs are often times a
concern when determining the viability of an aeration system.
Electrical costs may be determined by how many watts each
compressor will use to operate. Don't worry about amps-they are for
sizing breakers. Wattage consumption can be determined by using the
Single-phase watts= volts x amps x
Three-phase watts = volts x amps x 1.73 x power factor
ABI recommends placing all compressors
in a well-ventilated, secure cabinet, to prevent deterioration of
electrical components, rusting, and voiding of the warranty.
Linear compressors fill the gap
between aquarium air pumps and ponds. They are energy efficient and
offer higher pressure capabilities than other brands. They are
ideal for use in bait shops, classrooms, koi ponds and
laboratories. Linear motors have few moving parts, thereby reducing
noise, minimizing power usage and extending motor life.
Continuous-duty, oil-free rocking
piston compressors are the highest performing compressors available
today. Rocking piston compressors are a great choice for continuous
operation applications, possessing high pressure capabilities while
operating at lower rpm's. These features allow them to run cooler
and last longer, while using less electricity than similar
compressors. They are the perfect choice for aerating small ponds
or deep water applications (to 30 psi). This oil-less desigh safely
aerates ponds with no electricity in the water. The shore mounted
conpressor sends air though tubing (such as our self sinking air
hose) to a bottom mounted diffuser for a safe, effective way to
aerate ponds. Compressors are available in 115V or 230V.
Oilless rotary vane compressors are
compact, easy-to-service and excellent for moderate-pressure,
continuous-duty applications. They more than double the air output
of piston compressors with better longevity. Rotary vane
compressors are excellent for pond and lake aeration and de-icing.
The carbon vanes self adjust for years of maximum efficiency and
can be easily replaced in about 15 minutes using common tools. All
models have an 18' maximum operating depth. Air manifolds are
available with two to six valves, allowing one pump to supply up to
diffusers. Complete units ship with pressure relief valve, external
filter and 3 foot power cord. Please be sure to specify voltage
desired on these compressors, all units shipped 115V unless
Piston air compressors are for
applications requiring higher pressures than our rotary vane
compressors are capable of providing. These 50-psi models deliver
much more air than the 100-psi models normally found in the
marketplace. Whether you're aerating a deep water lake, overcoming
the friction loss of a long run of air piping or forcing air
through a fine pore diffuser, these compressors provide a
continuous supply of oil-free air. Due to amp draw, 115V models do
not have power cords.
One-year warranty. Made in USA.
Blowers are are the industry choice when high oxyygen, low
energy consumption and reliable service is needed. Blowers are
designed to provide large volumes of air at low pressure (less than
4 psi). With only one moving part - the impeller - there is no
wear, no seals, no vibrations and no lubrication to be done.
consumption. 50/60Hz operation, automatice thermal overload
protection, UL approved and CSA certified, can be mounted in any
position, lightweight, durable and compact. Each blower includes an
inlet air filter and outlet bleed valve, 6' power cord on all
blowers 1 HP and smaller. Please specify 115 or 230 volt when
ordering. Blower will be wired 115V if not specified.
