Vertical Shaft Floating Aerators is a mechanical direct-drive unit designed to provide optimum oxygen transfer in a variety of municipal and industrial wastewater applications. The performance of the Vertical Shaft Floating Aerators also provides the mixing necessary to uniformly disperse oxygen and organic matter within the microbial population.
Vertical shaft surface aerator floating system is a multi-armed system consisting of floats, central structure and assembly platform. Floats are made of carbon steel and epoxy coated materials. Float sizes and distances to the platform center are designed in accordance with Vertical shaft surface aerator’s effective area. The system balanced by floats filled with ballast oil. Floating system arms are made of spirally welded carbon steel pipes which are epoxy coated. Arms are made fragmental for easy transportation and erection. Connection bolts and nuts are stainless steel. Epoxy coated carbon steel assembly platform is a part of Vertical shaft surface aerator’s structure where aerated base plate is mounted. Carbon steel anchorage parts for tensioning ropes are provided by UIHET to be assembled on the aeration tank during civil works. UIHET also specifies the anchorage places on the aeration tank. Synthetic tension ropes and electrical cabling are water resistant. Tensioning rope lengths must be fixed when the aeration tank is empty.
