Aeration of Biofilters

Biofiltration is a biological water treatment process frequently used
in the fish farming industry. The process is carried out by naturally occurring bacteria in two stages. In the first stage, aerobic bacteria are used to convert ammonia to nitrites. During the second stage, other bacteria convert the nitrites to nitrates. Nitrates are much less toxic, and are tolerated in moderate quantities by most species of fish. The aerobic bacteria in the biofilter are supplied with air by a blower or compressor.

Tyr rotary lobe and Samos side channel regenerative blowers are ideally suited to this application, as they combine reliability with precise delivery.
