Ultra Fine Bubble Diffuser Data and Photo

Below are two pleasant images…. One of SSI’s ultra fine bubble disc diffuser in a tank producing very small bubbles, and the other a headloss curve. With <1mm diameter bubbles and low headloss, the result is low Standard Aeration Efficiency (SAE) in lbs/hp-hr or kg/kWh. After all, it’s not just the Standard Oxygen Transfer Efficiency (SOTE) that is important. It’s the overall energy consumption, which has a lot to do with diffuser headloss.
