Nano Bubble Generator

The fine bubble generator can produce trillions of microscopic super fine gas bubbles. This is achieved by utilizing the most efficient aeration technology to transfer almost any type of gas into any type of liquid or wastewater.

The system produces nano bubbles ~100nm (nanometers) in size, providing more than 200-times the interfacial surface area of conventional ultra-fine micro bubbles. The system allows for the transfer of gas with greater than 90% efficiency. This provides maximum utilization potential, improving the functionality of water, and enhancing wastewater treatment processes. The generated nano bubbles remain in suspension after saturation, creating a reserve of available gas in the liquid.

Our super fine bubble generator is unique from all other aeration devices because of its ability to generate bubbles, consistently, of the desired size with no coarse air bubbles. Once introduced into a DAF clarifier tank, the bubbles rise to the surface at the rate of approximately 8-12 inches per minute, creating a thick float on the water's surface. Request a Quote

The Process Explained

All particles have a "surface charge" when present in water. Just like "surface area", it is a fundamental parameter that directly impacts the performance characteristics of any suspension, such as surface chemical activity. Surface charge effects are normally negligible for massive solids, but they become dominant in the description of colloidal behavior.

Illustration showing effect of super fine bubbles in DAF process

Air bubbles in water are negatively charged. The high concentration of negatively-charged paramagnetic nano bubbles created by our super fine bubble generator has two effects on particles suspended in water:

  1. It alters the ionic equilibria of any dissolved ionic species in a solution
  2. It changes the net charge on a particle surface. Both directly impact the stability of the particle suspension

This substantial increase in the interface between air and water provides a much greater contact area for better chemical mixing. It impacts the efficiency of chemical reactions with any dissolved or suspended components in the water and enhances aerobic bacterial activity.
