The Combo Unit, inspired here at Creel Pump, is a hybrid between the Force 7 Aerator and the Rio Circulator, being a highly efficient, all-in-one circulator and aerator that is the ultimate solution in aeration for shrimp and fish farms in ponds and anywhere that requires effective air or oxygen injection and water movement.
The Combo is capable of mixing high volumes of water like the Rio, and can inject high volumes of air or pure oxygen into the water like the Force 7. When these two units work together, the injected oxygen is dispersed through greater volumes of water while reducing the loss of oxygen to the atmosphere.
The Combo features a 2 hp Rio mixer capable of circulating 840,000 gallons of water per hour (3,000 cubic meters), and a 2-3 hp Force 7 aerator capable of injecting 20 to 22 pounds (9 to 10 kilos) of pure oxygen per hour, all together being 4 to 5 hp. The SAE (Standard Aeration Efficiency) is 5.07 lb oxygen/kW/hour. No other aeration equipment is capable of combining a more efficient level of circulation and oxygenation with such low horsepower requirements.
The Rio and Force 7 units can also operate independently from each other, offering more flexibility in operation and costs. The Rio circulator can be used for continuous water movement, while the Force 7 aerator can be used at times when the oxygen levels are below optimum.
Based on your aeration requirements, the motor specifications of the Combo can be custom made to fit your production demands.
