Wind and Solar Aeration Options

Wind Powered Aerator

Although not nearly as efficient as diffused air systems, windmill aerators are a great option for remote ponds. The windmill can be located hundreds of feet from the pond, allowing placement in the windiest location. Double diaphragm windmills are also available, which increase windmill efficiency by 240 percent. Consult with an ABI representative before utilizing a windmill to determine if this application fills the aeration needs, keep in mind an 11 mph average wind is needed to properly aerate with a windmill.
