Effective, Sustainable Treatment

Otterbine is committed to insuring the products they manufacture deliver the results needed in even the most extreme applications. Delivering the industry’s highest independently tested and published oxygen transfer & pumping rates to maximize the consumption of excessive nutrients such as iron, phosphorus and other contributors allows Otterbine systems to effectively treat industrial ponds so that water can be reclaimed for other uses. Scientific evidence indicates that aeration can help "soften" hard water and lower high pH. This is due in part to mixing carbon dioxide enriched waters from the lake bottom up into the water column. Application studies show that Otterbine aeration systems in effluent ponds reduced iron levels from 17 PPM to .02 PPM.
