Overview of AQUA TORNADO® Float Mounted Surface Aspirating Aerator

The AQUA TORNADO® float-mounted system is specifically crafted to enhance the oxygenation and ecological health of diverse water bodies. The system operates by drawing in air and dispersing it through water in fine bubbles, facilitating an efficient oxygen transfer process. Designed with adjustable angles for circulation control and a depth-customizable bubble stream, the AQUA TORNADO requires no additional blowers, simplifying installation and maintenance. Constructed using high-grade, corrosion-resistant materials, it withstands the harshest elements, ensuring long-term functionality and reliability. Available in multiple horsepower configurations, it is suited for depths ranging from 4 to 15 feet and scalable for various aquatic environments.


Maintaining an optimal aquatic environment, whether for wastewater management, aquaculture, or ornamental bodies of water within your facilities, is critical. The AQUA TORNADO Surface Aspirating Aerator offers an innovative solution that addresses these needs through its advanced aeration capabilities. We’ve fine-tuned our technology to deliver high oxygenation performance, low operational costs, and ease of installation.

How the AQUA TORNADO Surface Aspirating Aerator Works

The aerator propels water upwards through a stationary draft tube, creating a low-pressure zone that draws air into the water column. This air is then injected into the water at high velocity by the spinning propeller located at the base of the draft tube.

The turbulence the propeller action generates vigorously mixes the injected air with water, resulting in fine air bubbles with increased surface area for oxygen transfer. As these bubbles rise, they carry water to the surface, creating a persistent upward flow that draws oxygen-depleted water from the bottom. When this water reaches the surface, it absorbs oxygen from the atmosphere before being thrust back down, promoting constant circulation and aeration.

Extensive Aeration Applications

The AQUA TORNADO is utilized across a diverse range of applications, such as:

  • Aquaculture
  • Wastewater Treatment
  • Golf Course Water Hazards
  • Residential Properties
  • Environmental Restoration
  • Commercial Properties
  • Municipal Parks
