Air Diffusion Systems

Diffusing air into water is both an art and a science. For three generations, Air Diffusion Systems (ADS) fine bubble aeration has naturally treated billions of gallons of water and wastewater around the globe at thousands of clean water, domestic, and industrial installations. By combining a clog-free design that requires minimal power input, the ADS diffuser is specifically designed to provide energy efficient operation with very little maintenance required.

Wastewater Aeration Treatment

For more than 60 years, ADS has specialized in the biological treatment of domestic and industrial wastewater. We are committed to providing our clients with the highest cost benefit, utilizing the most innovative treatment technologies available. ADS fine bubble diffusers are designed to meet or exceed all permitted effluent requirements and treatment goals. With hundreds of installed systems, ADS is proud to offer an industry leading 5-year product and treatment guarantee.

Lagoon Aeration Treatment

Lagoon aeration is our specialty.  The ADS aerated-facultative lagoon approach provides the highest cost-benefit and reliability of any fine bubble aeration system commercially available.  A properly designed ADS system is 3 to 6 times more efficient than high-speed surface aeration or static tubes, and 2 to 4 times more efficient than other diffused aeration systems.  By using highly efficient blowers, operational costs are typically less than $0.01 per capita/day.  The energy savings alone can help to pay for the system within several years of operation.  Because there is only one moving part (the blower), operation and maintenance is very easy.

Lake Aeration Treatment

Without natural or artificial circulation, lake and reservoir water goes through a process of aging called eutrophication in which inorganic & organic materials accumulate at the bottom.  This accumulation depletes bottom oxygen levels creating anaerobic conditions that cause many long-term problems for lakes and reservoirs. ADS fine bubble aeration restores oxygen throughout the entire water column, revitalizing water the natural way.

Harmful Algal Blooms Treatment

Harmful Algal Blooms (HAB’s) are a major environmental problem around the world.  Also known as cyanobacteria or blue-green algae, HAB’s can reproduce very quickly in warmer water where excessive nutrients are prevalent.  In addition to depleting oxygen and producing toxins, HAB’s can adversely affect taste and odor in public drinking water supplies.  ADS fine bubble diffusers are a proven remedy for minimizing the harmful effects of HAB’s, while also reducing their occurrence.

Tank Aeration Treatment

ADS’ fine bubble aeration is an effective method to provide oxygenation and mixing for many types of water storage tanks, including potable water tanks, fracking tanks, industrial wastewater tanks and more. Learn how ADS fine bubble diffusers can help with your above and below ground storage tanks.
