Overview of MONSOON® Paddle-Wheel Aerators

MONSOON® Paddle-Wheel Aerators are designed for superior aeration efficiency in water treatment, essential for optimal aerobic conditions and wastewater management. Their high oxygen transfer and powerful mixing abilities ensure the effective distribution of oxygen and microorganisms, improving treatment uniformity and compliance.

MONSOON Paddle-Wheel Aerators Features

Top-quality bearings, grit-resistant seals, an extra-large gear reducer, and foam-filled floats make every MONSOON floating paddle-wheel aerator safe and dependable. Stainless steel replaceable shafts bolt onto a torque tube, providing exact alignment and maximizing the shaft bearing life. Splash shields prevent excessive soaking of bearings, gear reducer, and motor for greater reliability. We factory test each MONSOON aerator before shipment to ensure the equipment meets stringent specifications.

  • 100% stainless steel construction for the ultimate in corrosion resistance
  • Integral legs and feet, which prevent basin and equipment damage if the water level drops
  • Heavy-duty gear reducer to provide high-design safety
  • Foam-filled stainless steel floats that won’t sink even if punctured
  • Grease-lubricated bearings to maximize equipment life
  • Field-replaceable rotor blades
  • Adjustable power draw
  • High rate of aeration and mixing

Benefits of MONSOON Aerators

MONSOON Aerators signify a leap in efficiency and longevity for water treatment facilities. Enhanced oxygen transfer rates are achieved with each unit, optimizing the aeration process necessary for high-quality effluent, while the robust construction ensures minimal downtime and maintenance costs. The precision-engineered components are designed for easy serviceability, thus reducing operational complexity. Operators benefit from the adaptability of the aerators, which can be tailored to suit varying depths and environmental demands, yielding consistent performance across a diversity of scenarios.

  • Proven Performance

How the MONSOON Paddle-Wheel Aerator Works

The rotating blades turn at 40 to 80 rpm and scoop water into the air, breaking the water droplets into a fine mist and combining them with air to generate high levels of oxygen transfer.

The horizontal pumping action then pushes the highly aerated water out into the basin while drawing water from deep within and behind the MONSOON aerator, resulting in extremely high oxygen transfer conditions.

The MONSOON paddle-wheel aerator functions well in lagoons, oxidation ditches, and equalization basins.
