Of all the essential elements in water, oxygen is also in the shortest supply. . Oxygen does not like water and It does not take long for oxygen to be depleted; it is our job to make sure it is replenished continuously. Wildlife and plants depend on the amount of available air in the body of water. Of all the essential elements in water, oxygen is also in the shortest supply.
To properly aerate ponds and lakes we must include fine bubble diffusers and improve circulation to increase the transfer of atmospheric oxygen into the water. Surface turbulence increases the available surface area in contact with the atmosphere and allows increased transfer of oxygen. Increased circulation evenly distributes the oxygen to all zones within the pond.
Wastewater aeration is the process of adding air into wastewater to allow aerobic bio-degradation of the pollutant components. It is an integral part of most biological wastewater treatment systems. Unlike chemical treatment which uses chemicals to react and stabilize contaminants in the wastewater stream, biological treatment uses microorganisms that occur naturally in wastewater to degrade wastewater contaminants.
Aeration in a shrimp farm is important for a few key reasons: It keeps dissolved oxygen up during the night after photosynthesis stops. By lifting the top of the water column into the air and spraying it, it introduces additional oxygen molecules into between the water ones, thus keeping DO levels at safe levels
