What is LIXOR®?

LIXOR® is a submerged aeration system that mixes and aerates wastewater, creating an environment for aerobic bacteria to thrive. These aerobic bacteria are responsible for biodegrading the organic matter in the wastewater. The system can be used in various ways as part of an overall wastewater plant design to help achieve desired treatment goals.

How Does it Work?

The LIXOR system is equipped with an above-ground regenerative blower that brings a large volume of air into the submerged LIXOR devices. The LIXOR devices use venturi chambers, which create a vacuum that pulls in surrounding liquid and breaks the incoming air stream into smaller bubbles. The result is a turbulent plume of oxygenated water. Bubbles travel through the water, transferring oxygen for biological activity, and creating vertical and horizontal mixing patterns.

Product Applications

  • Installed in new or existing tanks
  • Used alone to aerate an anoxic chamber
  • Used upstream of a treatment unit, such as MyFAST® or MacroFITT®
