Airy Gator Water Treatment Platform
The patent pending Airy-Gator Treatment System was developed to circulate millions of gallons of water per day in directed flows. This treatment platform provides a method to introduce additives or media to remediate algal blooms and improve water quality.
- Aid in the decomposition of organics
- Aids to remediate algal blooms
- Reduce eutrophication
- Destratify the water column
- Revive benthic community
- Improves aquatic habitat
- Reduce odor
- Facilitate additional treatment capabilities
The Airy-Gator is a floating treatment platform that consists of five urethane disks mounted on a horizontal motorized shaft. The lower portion of the disks are immersed in the water column. As the disks rotate, water is circulated and facilitates destratification, which is key to maintaining a healthy, vibrant aquatic environment.
This system is unique because it forces directional laminar flow, circulating large volumes of water at a rate of roughly an acre-foot per hour. Directional configuration may allow the systems’ circulation effects to be multiplied – as water is moved downstream from the system, upstream water moves to replace it – creating circulation that exceeds the direct pumping rate of the system. This circulation provides an opportunity to introduce various treatment options to address water quality issues like algal blooms.
