Selection + Sizing
Water and wastewater engineering is a diverse field requiring a diverse range of equipment and technologies. Correct selection and sizing ensure optimal results, longest service life, lowest maintenance and the most cost-effective solution.
Aeris Global offers the full range of aquaturbo® mechanical aerators encompassing high and low-speed; fixed and floating; surface and bottom; radial and directional; self-aspirating and forced air.
Complimentary products include a wide range of aquaturbo® mixers and aquadecant® floating decanters. The ever-increasing range of proprietary Aeris Global products include aercable Cable Management Accessories; otterdock Safe Docking Platform and otterpontoon Safe Access Platform.
Tech Data Sheets
Application engineers are available to offer advice and technical support in the selection and sizing of equipment for your application. To assist our engineers to provide accurate and comprehensive recommendations please complete and submit the online enquiry form.
We like drawings!
Drawings, hand sketches, flow sheets, plant schematics etc. all help to paint an accurate picture of the application. The more complete the input data the more complete the design calcs and recommendation will be.
Scope of Services
The Aeris Global engineering department operates Autodesk Inventor Professional and offers a comprehensive range of services including aeration, mixing and decanting design; 3D modelling; FEA (Finite Element Analysis); CFD modelling (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and Total Sound Pressure analysis.
Numerous proprietary programs are used for process, mechanical, electrical, hydraulic and acoustic design, as part of the equipment selection, sizing and detailed design phases; included oxygen demand, velocity profile, primary and secondary flow, volume turnover, mooring and mounting forces, static and dynamic loadings, sound pressure etc.
All aquaturbo® products are available as “Standard”, “Option” or “Special” versions. For example, the “Standard” material of construction for most products is AISI 304 stainless steel but 316 is available as an “Option”. Other grades of stainless steel are available on “Special” order. Likewise, each Model AER-AS aerator has a “Standard” float diameter and “Standard” draft but reduced or enlarged floats and reduced or extended draft are available as an “Option” as required to suit water level, water level variation, basin construction, wastewater characteristics, mixing energy, duty cycle and the influence of other equipment. Contract design of “Special” versions for project or site-specific applications is available upon request.
The selection and design of the appropriate mooring or mounting system is of critical importance to the product design and integral to the performance, maintenance and longevity of the system.
Electrical Cable Design
Correct electrical cable sizing, selection and routing is critical to the successful operation, longevity and safety of floating equipment. Sizing, of electrical cables, by suitably qualified and experienced personnel is a standard practice however cable management is equally important. Correct cable management is essential for equal weight distribution and to avoid impeding the operation of the equipment. Strain reliefs are installed to eliminate strain on cable connections, glands and junction boxes.
In response to a growing awareness of safe work practice around floating equipment Aeris Global has developed two new products specifically designed to provide safe and controlled contact with floating aerators and mixers; OtterDock – Safe Docking Platform for “Off-Water” procedures and OtterPontoon – Safe Access Platform for “On-Water” procedures.
We manufacture a wide range of products and accessories from our comprehensive Wanaka based facility. Manufacturing products to a high-standard of quality and consistency requires a combination of modern technology and highly skilled tradesmen.
Aeris Global utilizes the very latest manufacturing methods and employs a diverse range of talent with unique skillsets.
