Natural Aerobic & Anaerobic Cycles.
Left untreated the water in a pond stratifies
into layers. The topmost layer is home to aerobic
bacteria which digest organic matter, producing
harmless carbon dioxide as waste. The lower
layers and primarily the bottom layer, however,
is occupied by anaerobic bacteria, which produce
a variety of unwanted odor-causing compounds.
Known as the anaerobic zone, these lower layers
are the source of pond odor problems.
Patented Technology from the Toughest
The Strata-fuser System was originally designed
for and has been extremely successful in the
harshest applications such
as Industrial and Wastewater Treatment.
Heavy Duty Technology in Light Duty Applications
The introduction of OASE’s patented Floating
Strata-fuser System adapts this heavy duty tech-nology
for commercial landscape applications. Simple
installation, maintenance and affordable pricing
make OASE’s Strata-fuser the only total
aeration choice for decorative landscape holding
ponds. For more than 45 years OASE, the world
leader in decorative water technology, has pro-vided
innovative and proven solutions to display, enhance
and pre-serve our most precious natural resource.
The Sense Behind the System
OASE’s "Top to Bottom" patented
system approach makes perfect sense. Unlike typical
compressed air methods which expend a great deal
of energy forcing air into a body of water, the
Strata-fuser System extracts the water, pressurizes
it, infuses it with air, and returns the oxygenated
water to the bottom of the pond, inducing unilateral
circulation and aeration with significantly less
energy, maintenance and cost. The first stage
of the system is a reliable OASE pump suspended
directly below the floatation device. The pump
pulls water from the lower layers of the pond
and delivers it to the system’s second stage:
strategically located high-efficiency injectors.
With no moving parts to break or wear out, these
dependable injectors use the venturi principle
to infuse the water with air or even concentrated
oxygen. Under pressure the gas breaks into a fine
dispersion of micro bubbles directed back to the
bottom layers of the pond via patented “Strata-fuser
Nozzles,” creating a total circulation system
that encompasses an incredibly wide area. The
result is a level of complete aeration unmatched
by other methods.
of any odor control aeration method should be
the elimination of anaerobic conditions.
High efficiency air injectors dynamically infuse
water with micro air bubbles.
The micro bubbles (which have greater interfacial
area), coupled with the manifold’s increased
pressure enhances delivery of dissolved oxygen.
