The SAR Air Reactor internally disperses air immediately, reaching up to 130% of oxygenation due to the nano and microbubble contact with the liquid occurring in the SAR Aerator. Full aeration is achieved in one pass through the SAR Unit.


SAR Aerators achieve high throughput as the liquid / slurry is fully aerated, passing through the aerator in fractions of a second. Units are available in sizes of 100, 250, 300, 500, 750 and 2000 gpm. Units are banked and manifolded in order to achieve higher capacities.

Due to the high volume achieved by a single aerator, multiple traditional “splasher” style aerators can be replaced with one SAR Aerator

The SAR Aerator requires very low input pressures of liquid / slurry and air while achieving high throughput capacity. In many cases the slurry, with sufficient head available, can be gravity fed eliminating the need of pumps. End users commonly reduce horsepower requirements by up to 80%. 

Due to the small size of the SAR Aerator, it requires a minimal footprint and can be easily retrofitted. 


Immediate and consistent oxygenation is achieved while being distributed throughout pond/ lagoon. By placing the supply pump at a distance from the Aerator, circulation throughout the pond /lagoon. The Aerator is highly effective in the dispersion of reagents within the reactor. Bacteria, nutrients, aerosols and reagents are finely and effectively dispersed equally and instantly throughout the liquid being treated and subsequently dispersed in the pond/lagoon. A current can be created by placement of the pump at varios areas of the water body with the effluent at a separate location to improve overall dispersion


SAR Aerators have no moving parts and require very little maintenance. It is made from stainless steel and high density polyurethane to avoid contamination, corrosion and abrasion. The Aerators require little operator training and can also be monitored remotely using wireless communication systems.


As the SAR Aerator has no moving parts, there is no risk to the public or operators of getting appendages or clothing caught in any part of the reactor.

The Aerator is shore mounted in applications such as settling, tailings or fish ponds, reducing or eliminating the need for boats or other equipment to perform maintenance.

The SAR Aerator will not impact ice thickness of ponds providing winter safety for the operator or general public.


The SAR Aerator eliminates VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds). This reduction results in the reduction or elimination of odors associated with a variety of waste waters. This is accomplished by eliminating anaerobic conditions and often creates a “froth cap” over the entire pond/lagoon. This has the obvious affect of creating a more pleasant smelling environment and has also resulted in the avoidance of municipal fines, and negative community impact.


The SAR Air Reactor has applications in 3 major areas: All Aeration applications, Flotation/Flocculation and Bio-Remediation. It performs in adverse, hazardous or corrosive conditions, such as:

• Oxygenation of Liquid / Slurry of very low to very high pH levels
• Very cold temperatures such as preventing winter kill in fish lagoons to high temperatures applications hot countries.


The SAR Aerator is quiet and does not cause large amounts of splashing or disturbance, thereby being less intrusive to the general public. The noise emitted is only as loud as the blower producing the air and the effluent from the aerator is similar to that of a common hose.


The SAR Aerator can be used in conjunction with other systems in order to improve overall plant efficiencies, such as;

A Gas stripper in off-gassing VOCs.

Placed in advance of DAF (Dissolved Air Flotation) flotation cells to increase DAF efficiency, for flotation and flocculation in areas where fine particle separation or hydrocarbon flotation is the goal.

The Air Reactor can be assembled with a catchment basin or retrofitted onto existing flotation cells.
