EchoStorm quality aerators are made by Industry Leaders

Proudly distributed to  Australian Industry by Hydro Innovations

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:

Abattoir Wastewater
