Sanitaire®'s fine bubble diffuser is comprised of an EPDM
membrane over a flat bottomed PVC disc that serves to support
the membrane, and a PVC clamping ring. This diffuser system can
either be installed on PVC or stainless steel piping for fixed set-ups
at the bottoms of tanks. Typically used for biological treatments, with
its modular design, the Sanitaire® fine bubble diffuser will suit all
different types of configurations of treatment tanks.
Sanitaire coarse bubble diffused aeration is ideally suited for the
applications where tanks cannot be dewatered for maintenance, in
channels and grit chambers where mixing is more important than
aeration, in aggressive industrial applications and in applications
where energy consumption is not the main consideration.
Ceramic discs are often the preferred diffuser for applications that
require durability and resistance to chemical attack, for example
managing aggressive industrial discharges.
