Available in the following lengths: 50cm, 100cm, 150cm, 200cm, 250cm, 300cm
With 60,000 micropores per running metre, this air diffuser guarantees extremely fine distribution of the air and the greatest possible efficiency.
Very fine air tube which allows a bubble size of 0.1 – 0.5 mm (micro bubbles).
Thus, the micro-bubbles dissolve a considerable part of the atmospheric oxygen in the water.
To achieve this performance, it is necessary to place the hose in water (if possible from 20 °C) for 24 hours before use.
Please do not close the Ø 9 mm connection so that the water can also flow into the hose.
Only then does the tube bring the desired micro-bubbles.
Areas of application: Fish transport, fish keeping, pond aeration, watercourse rehabilitation, ornamental and garden ponds, settling basins and filter systems.
Completely ready-to-connect air outlets with 9 mm connection and weighting!
Microbubbles have a surface area per litre of air or oxygen that is up to 10 times larger than small bubbles.
Therefore, there is much more surface area available for gas exchange and the microbubbles rise more slowly
and so there is also more time for oxygenation. The air requirement decreases and the effectiveness increases.
In tests, micro-bubbles are up to 2.5 times more effective than small bubbles with a size of approx. 5 mm.
One litre of air yields 15,290,520 microbubbles (surface area approx. 12 m²) with a Ø of 0.5 mm, but only 15,277 bubbles (surface area approx. 1.2 m²) with a diameter of 5 mm.
