Scorpion Aerator
For those applications where urgent and additional aeration support is needed for paddle aerators, AirOxi offers the Scorpion Aerator. It is a powerful jet aerator, available in 3 HP and 5 HP models, where the motor remains inside the water and it sucks in air from the surface. The resulting vacuum pushes in the air and water mixture out at a depth of half a meter, thus providing additional aeration.

We offer 2 standard products.
