Kasco Robust-Aire™ Systems are available as complete packages from one to six diffuser heads. These highly efficient and effective diffused aeration systems are designed and sized to meet most typical aeration applications and come complete with everything you need including all connectors and adapter fittings. Installation is quick and easy with Kasco’s exclusive SureSink™ weighted air lines by simply sinking in place without separate weighting or anchoring.

WHAT IS DIFFUSED AERATION?
Kasco’s Robust-AireTM Diffused Aeration uses air to move water. By pumping compressed air from a shore-mounted compressor, air is pushed through lines to a diffuser on the pond, lake or tank bottom. The diffuser then continuously releases micro-bubbles that rise to the surface carrying large volumes of water. This induces oxygen-transfer as well as beneficial water movement and mixing. Common applications include: mixing, industrial, backyard ponds, lakes, municipal, winterkill prevention, waterfowl protection, and many, many more.

WHY DO YOU NEED IT?

  • Dissolved oxygen is most important water quality parameter
  • Maintains five PPM or greater dissolved oxygen level (critical for fish health)
  • Eliminates thermal and chemical stratification
  • Expands fish habitat
  • Ties up phosphorus to potentially control aquatic vegetation
  • Increases oxidation at bottom to speed up organic decomposition
  • Vents carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide
  • Safe - no power in the water
  • Controls mosquito populations
  • Open water for oxygen transfer and gas venting to prevent winterkills
  • Creates open water to prevent ice damage to docks and boats

All Robust-Aire™ diffused aeration systems are available with an optional remote manifold allowing you to install the compressor up to a mile away from the water’s edge. The remote manifold also allows you to adjust airflow to each individual diffuser head to get the balance of airflow and performance you need. Simply run PVC pipe from the compressor to the remote manifold located near the pond or lake edge.

  • No electricity in the water
  • No equipment floating on or near surface
  • Effective in depths 8 ft. -50 ft. (2.5M-15M)
  • Designed and built for continuous operation
  • Low maintenance rocking-piston compressors
  • Compressor can be remotely installed — up to 1 mile away (1.6K)
  • Safety Tested; compressor ETL listed to UL and CSA Standards
  • Backed by a 2 year warranty
  • Ships via UPS

If you want industry-leading efficiency and effectiveness in your diffused aeration system, Kasco has the solutions you need.

Mount your Robust-Aire Diffuser system how it best fits your needs. Kasco’s diffuser systems work in countless applications, so we’ve designed three distinct mounting methods giving you complete flexibility over your design and installation. Choose from the base mount cabinet, the post mount cabinet or the no cabinet option.

Standard Systems:

  • Each system includes 100 ft. per diffuser of 3/8 tubing
  • For tubing over 300 ft. for a single diffuser run, use 5/8 in. tubing

Double Piston Systems:

  • These systems used 1/2 HP double piston compressors for additional air flow to diffusers. (RA3 and RA6 systems include the 1/2 HP double piston compressors standard).

Remote Manifold Systems:

  • Inculde a remote manifold system. Systems with the cabinets have the manifold removed from the cabinet.

XL Systems:

  • These systems use 3/4 HP double piston compressors for additional air flow to each diffuser. These system also come standard with 100 ft. per diffuser of 5/8 in. tubing.

Compressor(s) Included Have:

  • Air filter assembly
  • 40PSI pre-set pressure relief valve
  • Brass outlet air elbow
  • 6 ft. power cord
  • Vibration mounting feet with hardware
  • Ramped valve plates to allow starting underload
