LIXOR Submerged Aeration System

LIXOR® is a remarkably effective submerged aeration and mixing system. Extremely low-maintenance and surprisingly efficient, LIXOR’s non-clogging, Venturi-type diffuser supplies air for simultaneous aeration and mixing in a variety of wastewater applications. Low-cost pre- aeration, aeration, sweetening and mixing are just a few of the cleverly- designed LIXOR’s impressive list of potential uses.

Wastewater Aeration 101

Aeration is the process of dissolving oxygen into water. In wastewater treatment, adequate aeration and mixing is a key component of successful system design. Dissolved oxygen enables aerobic bacteria and other microorganisms to quickly biodegrade and digest incoming organic matter, significantly reducing the concentration of pollutants in the wastewater.

How Can LIXOR Help You Today?


Each LIXOR submerged aeration system is designed to achieve reliable aeration and mixing performance efficiencies. Individual or multiple LIXORs may be used in many ways as part of your overall wastewater plant design to help achieve desired treatment goals. Each LIXOR system is easily installed into new or existing basins and is equipped with a reliable regenerative blower, the system’s only moving part. LIXORs add a new dimension of flexibility and performance in wastewater system design and upgrades.
