Active THM (Trihalomethane) Removal Systems
Maintain DBP compliance with GridBee® SN Series Active Spray Aeration in the tank or along the line.
Effective & energy efficient spray volatilization takes into account proper hydraulic design for optimum results and no energy is wasted with head and friction loss. Equipment can be uninstalled, moved, and re-installed to adapt to your system needs. Headspace ventilation & supplemental mixing are available to complete the system.

Active Mixing in Drinking Water Storage Tanks
The most immediate solution to improve water quality in your distribution network.
- Destratify your tanks.
- Eliminate stagnation.
- Better disinfectant dispersal and contact.
Active tank mixing is a must for modern-day water quality management in distribution.
GridBee® GS Series Submersible Tank Mixers are an industry-leading and easy to deploy mixing solution for municipal drinking water distribution tanks. These veratile mixers provide a complete, floor to surface mix which can eliminate stratification while achieving consistent disinfectant contact and residuals throughout the water column. They can be deployed in any tank build (underground, ground storage, or elevated), any tank size, and can be deployed without draining or taking the tank out of service.
SolarBee® SB Series Floating Tank Mixers pioneered the distribution tank mixing market in the early 2000's and are one of the most trusted brands in water quality. SolarBees can be configured to operate completely from solar, completely from grid or a combination of both for maximum efficiency. They are also a high flow and energy efficient solution for large mega reservoirs (even over 100 million gallons!).
All Ixom Watercare tank mixers for use in drinking water applications are certified to NSF/ANSI 61 & NSF/ANSI 372 standards.

Save Substantial Aeration Energy and Cost with Efficient Supplemental Mixing
There are two basic considerations when sizing aeration needs for a given pond or basin:
- Dissolved oxygen production (aeration) and
- Dissolved oxygen distribution (mixing)
The horsepower requirement for mixing tends to significantly larger than the horsepower needed for aeration. Wastewater mixing technologies from Ixom Watercare can provide all the needed mixing which can result in substantial energy savings (upwards of 30 to 50 horsepower of aeration run-time depending on the project). This can result in an exceptionally fast project payback of 1 -3 years!
Fight Wipes. Stop Clogs. Wet Wells Need Mixing.
Turn your wet well mess into wet well success!
The GridBee® AP500 mixer helps keep solids—such as wipes—in suspension as sheets instead of clumps and prevents lift station pumps from clogging. Mixing also helps reduce H2S odors and corrosion as well as FOG (fats, oils, grease) buildup.
These tough little mixers are ideal for almost all types of liquids in municipal and industrial wastewater treatment tanks, basins & ponds, or as a backup mixer. shallow or deep - wherever mixing is needed.

Circulation Solutions for Lakes and Source Water Reservoirs
Ixom Watercare offers effective active lake circulation technologies designed to solve a variety of water quality problems in lakes and source water reservoirs. There are two kinds of circulation settings to consider.
Epilimnetic (Top Water) Circulation: Set to circulate just the upper part of the water column from the surface to the thermocline or point of significant temperature stratification.
- Helps prevent and control cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) blooms.
- Reduces taste and odor problems in drinking water reservoirs.
- Improves dissolved oxygen (DO) and pH levels throughout the circulation zone.
- Reduces invasive aquatic weeds & filamentous algae.
Hypolimnetic (Bottom water) Withdrawal: Set deep in the reservoir below the thermocline to continuously bring up and expose bottom waters to the oxygen-rich epilimnion and atmosphere.
- Oxidizes manganese (Mn) & iron (Fe).
- Helps to prevent fish kills.
- Continuously de-gasses H2S.
- Reduces methyl-mercury (Hg).
Pay For The Project With Cost Savings! In many cases, SolarBees have paid for themselves in the first year with carbon savings at the water treatment plant and/or chemical savings in the lake. Some of our Customers have reported savings over $500,000 per year in plant operating costs compared to before they installed SolarBee® equipment!
