Rio Paila Castilla
AER-AS (18.5kW) floating aerators
A sugar cane factory in Colombia named Rio Paila Castilla, located in the Valle del Cauca, has a lagoon with a recirculation process. This lagoon collects all the water from the factory, and the client wanted to improve the water quality with aeration.
Part of the treated water returns to the process and part goes to the river.
The lagoon is 262 x 208m and has an oxygenation and decantation process.
The average flow for the aerated lagoon is 400 litres/s.
Aquaturbo was asked to supply five floating aerators of 18.5kW to replace five of the original 10 old aerators, which had low quality performance.
Aquaturbo Systems supplied five floating aerators series AER-AS (18.5kW). The factory plans to replace the other five original aerators with the same Aquaturbo models in the future.
