The AquaSAL Aerator is a specialised vertical shaft, fixed bridge aerator, designed specifically for oxidation ditches. Thousands of units are in use worldwide. The AquaSAL is installed in 80% of Australia’s Carrousel® oxidation ditches.

The AquaSAL is a true turbine impellor aerator that produces high oxygen transfer as well as sufficient trench velocity to maintain suspension of solids throughout the ditch. It has a special gearbox arrangement, designed to provide strength and efficiency.
