Venturi aerators suit a range of applications: odour control, sludge digestion, wastewater aeration, lake destratification and septage treatment.
The Echo-Storm, by Gorman-Rupp, is a high quality range of venturi aerators. They are available in a range of sizes to meet the aeration needs of multiple industries including; municipal wastewater treatment, industrial wastewater treatment and potable water treatment. These products are of high quality and are relied upon by industry leaders around the world.
The Echo-Storm aerator is a static device that is installed immediately downstream of a pump. The pumped fluid is forced into the Echo-Storm Aerator, where a specially designed and machined nozzle produces a Venturi effect, enabling atmospheric air to be drawn into the system and mixed with the pumped fluid. The aerated fluid is then pumped back into the lagoon or basin the water was drawn from. When used with self-priming pumps, the system can me mounted on the banks of lagoons, making them safer, cheaper and easier to maintain than other systems.
Because all equipment is mounted on the banks of lagoons or adjacent to tanks, row-boats or cranes are not needed to access the equipment making it much safer, easier and more cost effective to own, operate and maintain.
Echo-Storm aerators are available in 50mm, 75mm, 100mm and 150mm sizes, with fluid transfer rates from 5 L/s through to 80 L/s with a single unit, with the largest unit able to transfer up to 30kg of dissolved oxygen per hour.
Echo-Storm systems are ideal for Odour Control, Sludge Digestion, Wastewater Aeration, Lake De-stratification, Septage treatment, CO2 stripping and many other applications.
Our products offer safer, more cost effective tailored solutions in the following areas:
Wastewater pumping with Gorman-Rupp self-priming centrifugal pumps. Rugged and reliable, Gorman-Rupp pumps have large internal passages that enable them to handle ear tags, gloves and paunch pumping applications that would cause issues with most other pumps.
- pump ear tags, paunch
- rugged and reliable
By using Venturi-Aerators, asset owners can reduce WHS risks and lower maintenance costs when compared with surface mounted aerators. Venturi-Aerators can produce the desired level of mixing and dissolved oxygen with all the equipment located on the banks of lagoons/ponds, not in/on them.
- Reduce DO
- no chemicals
- works fast
Reduced energy consumption with innovative DAF Pump for Waste Water Management
Cedars Meats were impressed with the simplicity of the dissolved air flotation system and promptly arranged the purchase of an EDUR DAF pump. They have been pleased with the positive results, which include:
- A higher rate of solids removed
- less power used for the job (reducing power costs)
- less complicated controls
- low maintenance future ahead for the system

Watch how Venturi aerators are safer and more efficient aeration systems
Comparing Gorman-Rupp’s “Echo-Storm” venturi aerator with surface mounted or floating wastewater aerators.
If you’re looking for performance, reliability and safety in an aeration system, the Echo-Storm venturi aerator teamed with a Gorman-Rupp pump has a proven track record to deliver these outcomes.
The EchoStorm water aerator from Gorman-Rupp offers the benefits of safety, reliability and ease of access to water aeration applications.
Because these units are mounted on the bank [instead of floating on the water or being submerged in it], access is much less complicated and safer, while delivering oxygen transfer outcomes.
The EchoStorm water aerator benefits::
- No cranes or row boats for maintenance
- Easily accessed
- Less downtime
- Reliable and easy to maintain
- Easily scalable and low cost of ownership
- Thorough mixing – no dead spots
- High SOTR (Standard Oxygen Transfer rate)
- Oxygenated water
These aeration units are used in conjunction with Gorman Rupp self-priming centrifugal pumps to deliver solutions for the following applications:
- Lagoon and basin water aerator
- Oxidation ditch aeration
- Lake destratification and algae control
- Odour control
- Sludge digestion
- Septage treatment

Hydro Innovations is proud to be the sole distributor of The Echo-Storm Aerator in Australia.
The Echo-Storm has been manufacturing quality aerators for 25 years. Hydro Innovations use The Echo-Storm aeration systems in conjunction with Gorman-Rupp pumps so that asset owners can transfer oxygen at a cheaper rate per kW employed than other forms of aeration.
Because all equipment is mounted on the banks of lagoons or adjacent to tanks, row-boats or cranes are not needed to access the equipment making it much safer, easier and more cost-effective to own, operate and maintain.
