The Vertex Diffuser Assembly
The Vertex diffuser assembly has distinct advantages over other bottom-mount and lake-bed aeration diffusers. The pumping rates of the diffuser assemblies range from 2,000 gallons per minute to 20,000 gallons per minute depending on depth and number of discs.

The weighted, self-sinking diffuser base keeps the micro-bubble diffuser discs off the bottom sediment and allows for quick and easy installations. Ideal for deicing as well, air diffusers use less energy and are easier to service compared with submersed agitation style deicers.

Diffuser Features
• More energy efficient die cut perforations
• “Delta” surface pattern increases active surface area and aeration efficiency during low and moderate air flows
• Reformulated proprietary membrane compound increases flexibility, wear, and clog resistance
• Larger, stronger diffuser ring improves membrane retention and service life
• Redesigned and strengthened diffuser body and membrane backing plate
• StableTrak™ technology increases lift velocity
• FlowControl™ technology equalizes airflow to each disk
• Base unit has a hollow chamber design for adding inert pea gravel ballast
• Lipped base design prevents diffuser from settling in to soft sediments

Brookwood™ Compressors
brookwood-compressor-aeration-vertexAll Vertex Aeration systems are equipped with Brookwood™ air compressors. These energy-efficient air pumps are ideal for pond, lake and commercial aeration where continuous duty is required and long life is essential. These piston compressors provide high CFM and deep-water capabilities with over 30 PSI per unit.

Airflow rates are 2.5 CFM in the 1/3 HP, 4.3 CFM in the 1/2 HP and 5.6 CFM in the 3/4 HP.

Vertex Aeration Systems come with from 1 to 4 compressors to provide up to 22 CFM in a high pressure low-cost configuartion. Compressors come equipped with rubber vibration dampers and are installed with pressure relief valves and outlet manifolds in the QuietAir cabinet to reduce noise. An optional sound-proofing process is available.

Depending on tubing diameter it is available in rolls or spools up to 500?. Contact us for specific requirements.

BottomLine™ Self-Sinking Tubing Features
• Use with standard PVC solvent weld cement
• High wall thickness for long term durability
• Remains flexible in cold temperatures
• Over-sized for high flow
• Self-weighted for easy installation
• Available in 100? and 500? increments
• Available in inside diameters from 3/8? to 2?

Tubing Comparisons
• Poly Tubing: Extremely labor intensive installation, bricks must be added for weight every few feet, thin walls cause frequent kinking and are easily punctured by fish hooks and wildlife.
• Lead-Keeled Poly Tubing: Has same thin wall problems as poly tubing plus highest costs and introduces potentially dangerous lead into the ecosystem.
• Other PVC Tubing: Stiff to begin with and becomes more rigid in cooler temperatures making installations difficult and labor intensive.
