GAST Rotary Vane Air Compressors

Rotary vane compressors are sometimes used in situations where the water in the pond is less than 12' and the air lines are relatively short. The larger 3/4hp and 1hp models put out a substantial volume of air where shallow ponds with multiple diffuser locations will benefit. Like piston compressors, these air compressors are oil-less in design and engineered for continuous duty operation.

One of the advantageous design features of this type of pond aeration compressor is the internal carbon vanes that automatically adjust as they wear to maintain aeration compressor efficiency. However, It is not unusual to have to change the vanes about every 12 to 18 months if you operate the compressor continuously. This is a very simple job and only takes about 30 minutes with very common tools.

These air compressors must be housed in some sort of cabinet or structure to keep them out of the rain, snow, dust or other elements natural or man-made.
