Mohammad Tanveer, Subha M Roy, M Vikneswaran, P Renganathan and S BalasubramanianAbstract:
Surface aeration systems viz., paddle wheel and spiral aerators are the most commonly used aeration systems in intensive aquaculture practices. Use of aerators in intensive aquaculture is important for ensuring better survival, optimal oxygen supply, higher production, and disease free environment. Hence, selection of properly designed and high efficient aerators is necessary to maintain adequate and continuous supply of dissolve oxygen (DO) in semi-intensive and intensive aquaculture and keep the energy consumption (operating cost) to minimum. Paddle wheel and spiral aeration systems have advantage of cost effectiveness, low maintenance and easy availability. In the present study a review on previous studies related to standard aeration efficiency (SAE) and standard oxygen transfer rate (SOTR) of paddle wheel and spiral aeration systems has been discussed.Pages: 342-347 | 334 Views 54 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
