Oxygen cones are used to enter and mix an oxygen in the water for the fish. It is used both in closed circuits as well as in the flowing ponds.
Water inside the cone provided by circulation pumps is mixed with oxygen supplied from a separate vessel. Max. pressure that arises does not exceed 2 bar. Oxygen supply pressure must not be higher than 2 bar.
Receiving a stream of oxygen water is moving in a vertical direction towards the base of the cone where they are mixed together (self-saturation method), causing the optimum molecular oxygenation.
In a next step, the oxygenated water is moved through pipelines, optionally assisted with circulating pumps system to the breeding pools.
In a fish farming, oxygen cones are placed both next to the basin with the fish as well as in the interior of the basin in accordance with generally accepted principle that claims shorten the transmission time reduces the energy consumed, and thus, improves economic indicators breeding.
Oxygen cones represent another way how to dissolve oxygen in the water. If you're currently pumping water back to your tank, place an Oxygen cone between the tank and the pump to saturate the water with oxygen. You can reach oxygen saturation of 25 mg/l with just 1 barG of water pressure; a higher saturation can be reached with higher water pressure. Then you can mix the oxygen saturated water with untreated water to keep the fish at whatever dissolved oxygen level you choose.
The Oxygen Cones are made with chemically hardened layers of polyester resin reinforced with fiberglass and coated with a topcoat.
In our portfolio we have 4 models of oxygen cones, each with 2 pressure variants - 2bar and 4bar. Please contact us and we will help you to select the most suitable one.
