High pressure dissolver - SOLVOX® C
SOLVOX C cones are designed to increase the concentration of gases in water to a rather high level. In standard operation, the gas transfer efficiency is close to 100%. The operation the cone is simple: as water and gas enter from the top, the water jet forces the water to mix intensively with the oxygen bubbles, thus creating a high specific interface and a high turbulence at a top of the dissolver.
As the cone widens, the velocity is reduced. Here even small gas bubbles that haven’t fully dissolved can rise against the downwards oriented water flow, so only water-free bubbles leave the cone at the bottom.
Since the SOLVOX C cones can be operated at an elevated pressure, the dissolved oxygen concentration can be increased significantly above saturation. Thanks to their high liability, efficiency and simple installation, oxygenation cones are utilized widely in aquaculture. These cones are made of glass, fibre, reinforced plastic (GRP) and are CE marked.
Recirculation device for the cone - SOLVOX® CV
SOLVOX CV is an additional system to boost the oxygenation capacity of SOLVOX C cones, allowing up to 50 % higher oxygen dosing without increasing the water flow rate or energy consumption. SOLVOX CV uses a patented venturi nozzle to re-inject oxygen which is gathered at the top of the cone back into the water feed pipe. The installation can be done without any time consuming shut down. The SOLVOX CV is flanged directly onto the water feed pipe of the cone. By doing so, the water flow rate into the cone can be increased by up to 25% above nominal value, which then gives you an additional 25 % increase in oxygen capacity.
SOLVOX CV - Improved reliability and greater flexibility in production
Increasing the oxygenation capacity gives you greater scope and better control over the production. This ensures a more robust and flexible operation.
The design of the SOLVOX CV combined with SOLVOX C ensures that close to 100 % of the oxygen is dissolved. The outlet water leaving the application can be saturated to very high oxygen levels without any un-dissolved oxygen bubbles leaving the system. The detailed engineered solution of the system will prevent formation of bubbles and gas pockets in the distribution pipes in the plant. To achieve this requires a close cooperation with our customers in designing, engineering and implementing the complete system.
