VaraCorp LLC Specializes in Floating Surface Aerators
VaraCorp LLC specializes in floating surface aerators, municipal wastewater aerators, industrial wastewater surface aeration, farm wastewater aerator, aquaculture aeration, and wastewater aeration equipment. Our aerators for wastewater treatment feature a unique turbine water aeration design.
The Floating Surface Lagoon Aeration System
The floating surface lagoon aerator system is designed for open water municipal aeration and industrial aeration ponds or lagoons. The pontoon system is needed if water levels tend to rise or fall significantly. The pontoons consist of UV treated high density polyethylene jackets filled with closed-cell foam, guaranteed not to sink.
One of the keys to successful aeration is retention time of the dissolved oxygen. Large bubbles, as seen with many competing aerators, tend to rise and escape to the atmosphere. The VaraCorp floating aerators for wastewater can produce a high percentage of bubbles that are so small as to be virtually undetectable by the unaided eye.
SHIPPING AND INVENTORY
Anyone can sell you a piece of equipment. VaraCorp sells results. That is the reason a large percentage of our customers buy again and again.
Due to our large inventory of surface aerators we can normally ship in 3 to 5 days, depending on our shipment commitments.
REPUTATION FOR RELIABLE PERFORMANCE
VaraCorp’s floating aeration equipment requires no routine maintenance. There are no bearings to grease or floats to be checked. The pontoons are made of UV-protected polyethylene and are filled with closed-cell foam, guaranteed not to sink, even if punctured. The motors are hazardous duty, industrial- grade, designed to run 24/7. The air shaft is made of a stainless steel tube that has a ¼-inch thick wall. The rotating turbine is made of nylon imbedded with fiberglass making it both corrosion and wear resistant. The aerator prefers to be left alone once it is turned on, i.e. no need for routine maintenance or inspections.
REPLACES OTHER AERATORS WHICH HAVE 5 TIMES OR MORE HORSEPOWER
VaraCorp’s 5-horsepower Air Turbine
VaraCorp’s 5-horsepower turbine aerator typically pulls 4-horsepower line amps. This aerator, equipped with only a 3-hp motor at the time, was used to replace nineteen 20-horsepower propeller-type aerators on a one-for-one basis in a municipal wastewater lagoon. The result was an increase in dissolved oxygen from 4-5 parts per million (ppm) to 5-7 ppm. (These results, though seemingly impossible, were carefully recorded over several weeks of daily lab tests by the municipality.) The VaraCorp surface aerators led to a reduction in power consumption by over half. The VaraCorp wastewater aerators have been running 24/7 for six years with little to no maintenance of any kind.
Competing wastewater aerators place a lot of torque on the motor to turn paddle wheels or prop blades, etc. They can have multiple moving parts and multiple bearings that can wear out. In contrast the VaraCorp aerator is the ultimate in simplicity using only a low-torque spinning turbine to saturate the water with dissolved oxygen. The motor is epoxy-coated for long life. The pontoons are made of long lasting polyethylene. The air shaft is made of stainless steel with ¼-inch thick walls. The turbine is made of nylon impregnated with fiberglass to provide both corrosion and wear resistance.
