A remarkably effective, non-clogging, submerged aeration and mixing system, the LIXOR is extremely low-maintenance and surprisingly efficient. Lixor® System is a low cost, Venturi-type aeration device for a variety of wastewater applications, such as pre-aeration, supplemental aeration, aerating a sludge holding tank, and mixing.
How it Works
Equipped with an above-ground, regenerative blower – the system’s only moving part, a continuous large volume of air is piped down to the submerged LIXOR® device(s). The velocity of air and water increase substantially inside the LIXOR®’s venturi chamber creating a vacuum that pulls in surrounding liquid and breaks the incoming air stream into smaller size bubbles. The result is a turbulent plume of water and bubbles that travel up through the water, transferring oxygen for biological activity and creating horizontal and vertical mixing patterns.
How it Installs
Each LIXOR® submerged aeration system is designed to achieve reliable aeration and mixing performance efficiencies. Individual or multiple LIXORs may be used in many ways as part of your overall wastewater plant design to help achieve desired treatment goals. Each LIXOR® system is easily installed into new or existing basins and is equipped with a reliable regenerative blower, the system’s only moving part. LIXORs add a new dimension of flexibility and performance in wastewater system design and upgrades.
Finding the Right Size
It is recommended to check what local regulations are required in case additional information is needed.
