The aeration of process fluids uses the same “bubblers” as used in aquariums. Aquaculture requires aeration of ponds to increase the density of fish, shrimp and plants in commercial food production. Aeration systems are used in both municipal and industrial wastewater treatment to remove VOC’s and organics by supplying the “BOD” (biochemical oxygen demand) necessary to oxidise these compounds. In some applications with lower bed depths, fans can be used to aerate the ponds. In other applications where odours are a problem, fans are used with exhaust hoods to control the foul air by creating a vacuum at the emission and forcing it through an odour control system or incinerator.
