EPILIMNETIC (SURFACE) EQUIPMENT

Achieve excellent aeration results while maintaining a low profile. This chemical-free process is created by combining a floating electric motor operating at 1725 RPM with a high-efficiency stainless steel propeller system. The random boil effect results in an oxygen transfer rate starting at 3 lbs. per hour. This continuing cycle of oxygen circulation and induced wave action prevents thermal stratification and supports aerobic bacterial action, resulting in clearer, cleaner, odor-free water.

  • Lighting Systems now available for all models

Oxymax® systems work from the bottom of the pond, completely submerged, out of sight and silent. This system couples an electric motor with a propeller water-transport system. The oxygen-depleted water is moved rapidly from the bottom of the pond directly and efficiently to the surface. This cooler, denser water absorbs oxygen as it quickly spreads across the pond. It returns down through the stratified layers, providing equal distribution of oxygenated water.

Oxymax® Features and Advantages:
  • UL, cUL Listed and CE Recognized
  • Totally out of sight and silent, submerged to the bottom of the pond
  • Easily adapts to any pond 2.5' to 20' deep
  • Lightweight, small size makes it highly mobile and easily relocated for spot problems
  • Ideal for fish impoundments, keeps ponds open year round (where applicable), eliminating winter kill
  • Not susceptible to freeze damage, as unit is totally submerged
  • 1/2 to 5 HP; single and three phase motors
  • Stainless steel motor housings
  • 3 Year Warranty, 1HP & up
  • 3 Year no internal maintenance guarantee 1HP & up
  • 2 Year Warranty, 1/2 HP

Kasco Aerators

According to independant testing conducted at Auburn University, Kasco's Pond Aerators possess SAE (Standard Aeration Efficiency) of 3.0 lbs. of oxygen per horsepower per hour of operation or greater. All Kasco Pond Aerators are self-contained units that float at the surface with a single power cord returning to shore, which makes them extremely easy to move and install with a single person.

Kasco Pond Aerators are perfect for continuous duty or as a supplement supply of aeration during times with low oxygen levels and with minimum operating depths as low as 15", they can be used in almost any situation with great success.

Kasco Pond Aerators agitate high volumes of water at the surface to maximize exposure of water to the air for gas exchange.

Kasco Pond Aerator Features:

  • Longer-life top and bottom ball bearings
  • Environmentally friendly oil-filled motor with a hard-face internal mechanical seal and external lip seal for protection against leaks.
  • Flood oil lubricated for excellent heat dissipation.
  • Industrial Design
  • Highly efficient, lower power consumption than competitive equipment
  • Superior dependability in salt-water or other corrosive environments. All external metal motor, float, and hardware components are of stainless steel composition and protected by a sacrificial zinc anode.
  • Requires minimal maintenance. We recommend cleaning the stainless steel motor housing once or twice per year and replacing the sacrificial zinc anode when visibly corroded.
  • ETL listed to stringent UL and CSA Safety Standards
  • U.P.S. Shippable
  • Made with pride in the U.S.A.

Kasco Aerators are available in the following models. All include a float and two (or three) 50' braided nylon mooring ropes and are available with 50', 100', 150', or 200' SJTOW underwater rated electrical power cords.
