Can we use the AEROSTRIP® diffusers to upgrade an existing plant? Does this limit the existing mixing capability of the plant?
The AEROSTRIP® diffusers can be laid out in a very efficient manner and can be designed to avoid all existing obstacles. Existing piping for coarse bubble and tubular diffusers can be utilized for substantial savings, as the ¾” fittings can be used to connect the new strip diffusers. The smaller the bubble size, the better the mixing for a given air flow. Mixing typically requires 1.3 – 1.8 Nm2/hr/m2 floor area (0.07 – 0.10 scfm/ft2 floor area) with floor-mounted AERSOTRIP diffusers.
