nutrient leaching Applications

  • Continuous Monitoring of Surface Water

    The Sorbisense method is especially suitable for measurements in dynamic environments. For example, in rivers, streams and lakes.

    The method is innovative and allows you to implement continuous and cost effective measurements in both urban and in rural areas. For example, measuring the leaching of nutrients from the cultivation of wetlands and measuring water quality in rainwater and sewage.

  • Aeration of Fish basins

    Salmonoids are especially demanding about water quality and high oxygen content. The oxygen concentration should be kept at least 5 mg/l throughout the year. This ensures good condition of fish and facilitates quick maturity without disturbances.

    Sufficient oxygen content near the basin bottom (2 mg/l) prevents leaching of nutrients and in particular phosphor into the water. Dissolved nutrients have a detrimental impact on water quality and – at worst  – can cause growth of cyanobacterium. Furthermore, nutrients can transfer from fish basins to cause loading on other waterways. The Waterix AIRIT® product family has aerators to match different fish hatchery basin sizes. Waterix can help you to choose the right device – just contact us! The operating efficiency of Waterix AIRIT® aerator is very high – energy consumption remains low.
