The MAXAIR500 Submersible Aerator
The MAXAIR500 is a submersible septic tank aerator that sits at the bottom of the aeration tank. A motor rotates the impeller, a propeller-like device, drawing fresh air via a long PVC pipe or hose. The impeller mixes this air with wastewater, creating many bubbles which work to distribute oxygen throughout the tank. A good amount of dissolved oxygen is vital for the aerobic bacteria to process your wastewater.
The MAXAIR500 submersible aerator is designed for durability and constructed with high-quality, corrosion-resistant materials. The continuous duty motor is fully enclosed with stainless-steel housing and an epoxy-coated, cast-iron outer shell; high-impact plastic handle, impeller, 1/2-inch FPT air hose inlet; and stainless-steel tripod stand legs with rubber feet. The MAXAIR500 Submersible Aerator includes a 15-ft STOW power cable as well as a nylon pull rope for convenient lifting. With each part manufactured for superior protection from corrosion and strength, the MAXAIR500 offers you years of trouble-free, non-clog usage.
One of the challenges with pumps is the tendency for the impeller to be clogged with debris and larger solids. The MAXAIR500 submersible aerator from Septic Tank Parts is a non-clog design and a revolutionary improvement to submersible aerator performance. The MAXAIR500 features a specially designed, high-impact plastic impeller with a semi-open, recessed design to eliminate issues with clogging.
MAXAIR500 submersible septic aerators are compatible replacements for aerators installed with Multi-Flo® and Enviro-Guard® septic systems. The MAXAIR500 has been independently testedǂ for performance in the original manufacturer’s tanks. This testing has verified that the MAXAIR500 Submersible Aerator exceeds the oxygen transfer rates of the industry standard. Higher dissolved oxygen means healthy, active bacteria that more efficiently process your wastewater.
The MAXAIR500 septic aerator has a zero-maintenance, continuous duty motor designed for 24-hour operation. The MAXAIR500’s low speed, high-torque motor is almost 100% noise-free when submerged. The MAXAIR’s exceptionally quiet motor is also extremely energy efficient, pulling less than 3 Amps during its continuous use. Less energy consumption means a lower utility bill for you and your family or business.
More Versatile in Harsh Climates
One of the things that can shorten the life of a motor is overheating. This can be a problem in warmer climates where aerators are working in high ambient temperatures. Because the MAXAIR500 septic aerator is fully submerged, it is cooled by the liquid in the tank and can withstand the warmer temperatures. The MAXAIR500’s submersible design also makes it flood-proof. This is beneficial for areas prone to hurricanes where high winds can beat up external aerators and water levels on the ground can rise quickly and dramatically and cause flooding in the tank. The MAXAIR500 is one of the best performing submersible aerators and can provide consistent performance in a variety of challenging climates.
Compatible Replacement for Multi-Flo and Enviro-Guard Systems
The MAXAIR500 is a replacement aerator for Multi-Flo® and Enviro-Guard® septic systems. These systems are Aerobic Treatment Units (ATUs), also known simply as aerobic septic systems, which are self-contained sewage treatment systems. Aerobic septic systems are designed to hold and treat sewage like a municipal wastewater treatment system but on a much smaller scale. While they use the same basic principles, many of these home wastewater treatment systems are proprietary, meaning each manufacturer has different components that are specifically designed for their system. The MAXAIR500 Submersible Aerator is an economical septic tank aerator replacement for existing OEM aerators.
Multi-Flo® Septic System
A Multi-Flo® aerobic septic system is designed to biologically treat wastewater by removing organic materials, solids, and pathogens in addition to mechanical filtration. Multi-Flo® septic processes take place in a single tank using many filter “socks” that increase the surface area for bacteria to attach and metabolize organic materials, i.e., waste. A submersible aerator sits at the bottom of the treatment tank and disburses oxygen to be used by the aerobic bacteria.
Enviro-Guard® Septic System
An Enviro-Guard® aerobic septic system is a three-stage wastewater treatment process built upon Multi-Flo® technology that takes place inside one compartmentalized tank. The first stage happens in a trash tank for the collection of the larger solids; the second compartment is the dosing tank where water is pretreated before being sent to the treatment plant. This last stage serves as a final filtration to the pretreated wastewater before it leaves the system as clear, odorless effluent. Similarly to Multi-Flo®, the treatment tank uses the filter “socks” to create additional surface area for aerobic bacteria to attach to and do the work consuming organic materials. This system also utilizes a submersible aerator that rests at the bottom of the tank and provides oxygen for the aerobic bacteria.
With its low-cost operation and high rate of aeration, the MAXAIR500 Submersible Aerator is a hassle-free choice for replacing your OEM submersible aerator. Don't forget your MAXAIR Filter Socks for Enviro-Guard® or Multi-Flo® systems!
