areas are kept open by moving warmer bottom
to the surface and by simple physical movement
to inhibit ice formation. Oxygen is then transferred
into the water via diffusion at the air/water
Precise open area in winter is a function of air
and water temperature, water depth, and method
mounting the unit. In certain conditions, particularly
in very small, shallow ponds (3 feet or under),
circulators may not be effective for ice prevention,
however these types of units are more efficient
than our other units at moving water and keeping
an area ice-free. They do not splash water
the air and "super -cool" the water.
In summer months Kasco
circulators can move water out of dead end canals
or keep floating debris from accumulating around
docks. Circulators have also been used successfully
to move water through fish net pens.
There are three
methods of installing Kasco Circulators.
The units can by mounted in either a vertical or
angled position with ropes or cables.
UNIVERSAL DOCK MOUNT
Kasco offers an optional dock mount, which allows
for either a vertical or several angled positions.
Kasco circulators can be suspended from our optional
float kit to create an elongated pattern of water
movement. The unit rests less than two feet from
the surface and is ideal for shallow water or where
you do not have a dock or place to suspend the unit.
