Surface Aerators

The Most Efficient Aerator in the Industry

kasco-marine-aerators-web-header.jpg

Kasco Surface Aerators are the clear market leaders, with more installations than any other manufacturer. Independent testing at Auburn University found that Kasco’s aerators’ SAE (Standard Aeration Efficiency) is up to 3.0 lbs of oxygen per horsepower per hour of operation, making them some of the most efficient and effective units available.

Kasco Surface Aerators dramatically agitate high volumes of water at the surface, maximizing air and water exposure to create valuable gas exchange. Surface Aerators are your best choice for aeration when a decorative fountain pattern is neither necessary nor desired.

Typical applications include:

  • Commercial aquaculture
  • Agricultural ponds
  • Industrial plants
  • Municipal waste water ponds
  • Backyard ponds

Kasco’s 3 and 5HP AF Series surface aerators now come with a lightweight, 2-blade weedless prop, designed to maximize the unit’s water moving performance and cut through even the toughest aquatic vegetation, all without increasing amp draw.

All Kasco Surface Aerators are self-contained, lightweight units that float at the surface with a single power cord returning to shore and two or three mooring lines anchoring the unit. These units are designed to withstand the rigors of the harshest applications. Easily installed and maintained, these units are proven performers for both continuous-duty pond or lake aeration or for supplemental aeration for unique applications.

Sizing is fairly simple. The corresponding HP equals the surface acerage it can aerate properly. For example Kasco's 1/2HP Pond Aerator = 1/2 Surface Acre it can aerate. Another Example would be Kasco's 5HP = 5 Surface Acres it can aerate. The AF model is the most efficient surface aerator in the Kasco Marine Line of equipment.

Kasco pond aerators (also called high oxygen transfer units) are designed to withstand the rigors of farm ponds, commercial aquaculture operations, industrial applications, and municipal waste water plants, but they work in the back yard pond as well. With more vertical-pump-type aerators in use in North America than any other manufacturer, Kasco is the clear market leader in products proven to deliver outstanding performance and reliability.

Kasco pond aerators dramatically agitate high volumes of water at the surface to maximize exposure of water to the air for valuable gas exchange, greatly improving your pond or lake aeration.Typical applications include commercial aquaculture, agricultural ponds, industrial plants, municipal waste water and backyard ponds. These units are typically selected for surface aeration when a decorative fountain pattern is neither necessary nor desired.
