Since 1986 Aquaconsult is the proud manufacturer of the most efficient and most long lasting fine bubble diffuser systems. Strip shaped diffuser technology was introduced in 1995 under the worldwide trade mark AEROSTRIP®. Why are AEROSTRIP® diffusers so efficient? Because size matters! – small bubbles have a huge surface area. The large surface area and the excellent distribution improve oxygen transfer compared to conventional diffusers. Lower air flow rates are thus required for the same amount of oxygen transferred. This means power savings. What lifespan do the AEROSTRIP® diffusers have? AEROSTRIP® diffusers have an expected lifespan of 10-15 years. Better lifetimes have been recorded in some Aquaconsult plants.

Company Profile

Image

AQUACONSULT Anlagenbau GmbH was founded in 1986 as a manufacturer of fine bubble aeration systems and it deals exclusively with the development and manufacturing of fine bubble diffuser since the mid-1990s.

In 2006, AQUACONSULT was 100% acquired by SANKI Engineering co. Ltd.(Japan).

The manufactured strip-aerator made by AQUACONSULT bares the trade mark AEROSTRIP and can be seen today as one of the most efficient device among fine bubbled diffusers. Manufacturing of AEROSTRIP is made entirely at the Austrian headquarter and fullfill the high quality requirements according to ISO 9001.

Quality Made in Austria

AQUACONSULT is a name associated with the most efficient aeration technology in wastewater treatment worldwide. The success story began in 1986 with the exhaustive research work of the newly formed AQUACONSULT Anlagenbau GmbH. Development of a diffuser using an elastic perforated-membrane of 100% polyurethane was a revolution in the industry at that time. This pioneering activity eventually launched the advanced strip-shaped diffuser -- AEROSTRIP --in 1995, a milestone in aeration technology. The Austrian production facility lies south of Vienna, in the city of Traiskirchen and serves as the Headquarters of AQUACONSULT. High quality manufacturing is assured through a strong and highly-experienced team, as well as a quality control program unmatched in the industry. Rigorous testing is performed on each Aerostrip diffuser in our factory to ensure the highest possible performance. AQUACONSULT is a subsidiary of SANKI Engineering ltd which is based in Tokyo, Japan.

Each AEROSTRIP diffuser manufactured by AQUACONSULT must pass a complex quality inspection process, and each diffuser receives its own unique serial number. This guarantees the highest confidence and eases the traceability of individual diffuser properties for the end-user.   

The experts at AQUACONSULT are able to test oxygen transfer rates for different designs and configurations in their own test-facility (equipped with a 4.5 m x 6.5 m tank, blowers and a laboratory for chemical analysis and data interpretation).  This allows the end user to receive certified oxygen transfer efficiency guarantees for specific designs that are the best in the industry.

Proudly Made in Austria –guarantees without fail the best possible performance and quality, while combining daring creativity with utilization of physical and chemical laws.

Research and Development

Image

Energy efficiency and longevity of aeration technologies are two of the most important challenges in wastewater treatment today. While many aeration systems are available, they vary widely in their power usage and lifespan when operating in wastewater treatment plants . 

It is generally accepted that the most efficient aeration systems are those employing fine bubbles: small and slowly ascending air bubbles offer the highest interfacial surface for oxygen transfer and offer an enormous energy-saving potential.

The secret lies in the membrane properties, perforation technology, and the design of the overall aeration system.

Intensive research activities in the areas of bubble size, oxygen-transfer rates, and oxygen-transfer efficiency are a daily routine at AQUACONSULT. The professionals are constantly improving perforation technique and are developing proprietary high productivity machines and testing facilities. Materials testing, spectrometry, and resistance to aggressive conditions are just a few key aspects of our internal research activities.  

Analysis on the influence of different substances contained in wastewater on the pressure drop and bubble pattern are part of this same intensive research.

The experts from AQUACONSULT offer the end user a scientific advantage through R&D on the membranes, as well as the diffuser construction.  The result is that the AEROSTRIP aeration system is the longest lasting, most efficient diffuser on the market today.

Quality and Longevity

For conventional short sludge retention time treatment plants (SRT 1 to 6 days), this [12-year old AEROSTRIP] system performed better than all previously tested fine pore diffuser systems installed; and even better than most news ones.“
Quote: Michael K. Stenstrom, Ph.D., P.E. - Distinguished Professor in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department of UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles, USA)

Accuracy and quality are one of our core values in the house of AQUACONSULT. This not only applies to our high performing membranes, but also to the final AEROSTRIP diffusers which must pass intensive tests prior to shipment. This includes the final pattern and functionality test for every single diffuser in clean water.  At AQUACONSULT, developing, manufacturing and sales are DIN EN ISO 9001: 2008 certified. In addition, the products of AQUACONSULT are certified by the GWT - Gütegemeinschaft Wassertechnik für Österreich (an Austrian association) founded 1976 with the aim to promote high quality products in the field of water treatment.

The art is not in how to build one diffuser perfectly; the secret lies in how to make thousands of diffusers with the same extraordinary properties that provide years of long-term performance. “

By employing micrometric precision of the highest accuracy, providing exceptional quality, and delivering the longest proven lifespan, AQUACONSULT has become one of the major innovation leaders in the aeration industry over the last three decades.

The longevity of AEROSTRIP is internally tested under the most severe imaginable conditions.  Recent studies are documenting how the products of AQUACONSULT behave better on site, and prove higher efficiency compared with new diffusers employing EPDM membranes.

Internationality
