AGV high-speed surface aerators produced by SCM

AGV high-speed surface aerators are essential machines in water treatment.

Designed and manufactured by SCM Tecnologie, these devices offer an efficient and reliable solution for aeration and water treatment.

In this article, we will explore in detail the technical features, applications and advantages of high-speed AGV aerators.


Technical Characteristics

AGV aerators are made with motors from 2.2 to 55 Kw and offer oxygen transfer efficiencies of 1.5 KgO2/kWh. These are floating surface aerators of compact construction with a single float.

Their technical characteristics include:

  • Float and Hydraulics: Made entirely of AISI 304 STAINLESS STEEL, AISI 316L propeller, these components guarantee long life and corrosion resistance.
  • Motor Protection: With AISI 304 splash guard and rain cover, the motor is protected from damage caused by splashes and rain.
  • Motors: High efficiency IE3 with the possibility of inserting heaters, servo ventilation and PTC thermal protections, ensuring optimal operation.
  • Power supply: Possibility of power supply with special voltages and varying frequencies, offering flexibility in different applications.
  • Suction cone: in AISI 304 with internal baffles, to optimise the suction flow, improving ventilation efficiency.
  • Additional options: including suction cone for high water levels, or the possibility of inserting the anti-erosion kit to avoid interference with the bottom of the tank, for example in tanks with heavy sedimented sludge or bottom ventilation systems.

Applications and Benefits

The SCM Tecnologie AGV aerators offer a wide range of applications and benefits:

  • Easy Installation: Quick anchoring on the surface at three points, even when the tank is full and with the system running.
  • Wastewater Cooling: Large recirculation and pumping capacity, ideal for applications where it is necessary to cool the wastewater.
  • Foam Reduction: Thanks to its large surface area of influence, it is able to break down surface foams.
  • Easy Transportation: Compact machines with float of maximum diameter 2 m, for rapid transportation and with simple means.
  • Versatile Use: Ideal for lagoons, fish farming, water storage tanks, SBR [Sequencing Batch Reactor]
  • Temporary Rental: Possibility of supply with temporary rental, offering flexibility in solutions.

Specific Applications

Variable Level SBR Systems

The AGV aerators are an optimal solution for variable-level SBR systems, offering excellent oxygen transfer on medium/low heads.

Fish Farming and Aquaculture

Used in fish farming, both in freshwater and seawater, AGV aerators are essential to prevent the formation of algae and unpleasant odours in storage tanks.

For these applications, the safety grid is available at the inlet of the suction cone.

Emergency Management

Ideal for the handling of emergencies following faults or systems with large load/seasonal excursions, AGV aerators offer a quick and reliable solution.
