Product Details

This industrial side-channel air blower is very special in its performance, and a great blower to use in large aquaponic systems. It is very well engineered, providing both good pressure and volume of air.  It's the one we recommend and provide for farms that we've designed for people.

From one of Australia's leading designers and manufacturers of industrial fans.

  • Premium-efficiency motor
  • Long-life bearings
  • Oil-free operation
  • Low-noise
  • Can be mounted horizontally or vertically

This compact blower is streets ahead of regular side-channel and regenerative air blowers.  The regular ones can produce lots of air, but not much pressure; this means you can't put your air-stones at the bottom of the fish tank!

But this high-quality two-stage blower provides plenty of air and good pressure, meaning you can place your air-stones right at the bottom of even large fish tanks.  This gives you rich aeration throughout the whole water column.  A huge advantage for the fish!

And of course all that air can also be channelled to your raft beds, your biofilters and your biodigesters!  One pump to rule them all!  What a plus!

This blower is a definite MUST for anyone running large aquaponics systems, especially commercially.

  • Powerful
  • Reliable
  • Durable

Worth the investment!

Power source - 240 volts single phase
Air volume delivery - 1.5 m3/min (cubic-metres per minute; ie1500 Lpm (litres per minute))
Pressure output - 220 mb (millibar)
Noise output - 60dB (decibel) at 1m distance (that's about the sound of a normal conversation)

Weight - 17 kg

We order these in as required, so it might take a couple of weeks from the time you order to the time we can ship to you.  But they are worth the wait!

Protect your blower by adding an air-intake filter!  Filters the air getting sucked into the blower, enhancing the efficiency and longevity of the blower, and ensuring the outflowing air is nice and clean for your aquaponics system.  Don't run your blower without it!
