The new MicroGas XL series from water technology company akvola Technologies is for high gas flow rates and can be used for building energy-efficient large-scale flotation plants and oxygenation and ozonation systems.

Unlike conventional microbubble generation technologies, the MicroGas technology is not based on the gas dissolution principle but on direct microbubble induction. This means that no pressure is necessary to dissolve gas into the liquid, resulting in energy efficient systems that require fewer components to function. This makes MicroGas powered plants simple to install, operate and maintain and gives them a very small footprint.

The company says MicroGas is the most energy efficient microbubble generator available on the market for flotation and gas transfer (O₃, O₂, CO₂) applications. Compressed gas (air, O₃, O₂, CO₂) is injected at 1-2 bar into a hollow shaft, the rotating motor spins the shaft at 200 rpm and The gas flows through the discs into the liquid, generating a cloud of microbubbles between 40-60 micron (white water). MicroGas has 600 times more surface area than conventional diffusers.
