Carbon Dioxide Strippers are ideal for water reuse and recirculating aquaculture systems. PR Aqua offers seven sizes for flow rates up to 2,000 gpm. Excess carbon dioxide in culture water can be toxic to fish, and removal of excess carbon dioxide is critical. The Carbon Dioxide Stripper simultaneously removes carbon dioxide and aerates water.
Water enters the vessel from the top and cascades inside the column. A blower, sized specifically for the desired flow and carbon dioxide removal, forces fresh air across the water droplets. Carbon dioxide is driven off and oxygen is absorbed until the dissolved gases are close to saturation. Treated water drops into the header tank and is ready for distribution.
• Uses forced air to strip elevated carbon dioxide from culture water
• Reduces total gas pressure (TGP) when necessary
• Can use excess elevation from biofilter, which reduces pumping requirements
• Includes built-in blower redundancy
