Superior Freeze Control

By continuing to aerate your pond during the winter months you will ensure that your pond doesn't freeze over. Superior freeze control is a self-regulating system that protects against line freeze and blockage by monitoring line pressure at all times. When ice deposits in the line cause an increases in back pressure, the spring loaded valve at the bottom of the freeze control tank opens releasing a small amount of isopropyl alcohol into the line, as needed allowing the line to clear. Once the line clears the pressure is released causing the valve to close again and operation resumes.

Superior freeze control can also be used to locate leaks in the air line. If the air pressure drops below the normal operating range, the check valve at the end of the air line closes preventing any aeration process to continue. Making note of the initial pressure gauge reading when you first begin the aeration process will help you quickly and easily check up on the operating effectiveness of your Superior Windmill.

Maintaining and using a Superior Freeze Control system is made easy. Simply fill up the white tank with a few gallons of any alcohol based product, PREFERABLY ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL and attach the container at the 4 ft level of one of the tower's legs so you can still monitor the gauge and fill the alcohol tank.

To answer some of these questions, PFRA staff in Peace River collected information that compares both different aeration devices and the differences between aerated and non-aerated dugouts. The main purpose of dugout aeration is to prevent the problem of black, smelly dugout water caused by decaying plant matter resulting from a lack of dissolved oxygen in the dugout water.


Windmill and Pond Aeration Systems

Fish Hatcheries need extra oxygen in their water to burn up additional amounts of pollution created by the large amounts of fish waste and to lower the amount of fish kill caused by the lack of oxygen. Farmers have water dugouts and ponds in selected areas of their fields to provide cost effective irrigation for their crops and ensuring that poisonous bacteria is not transmitted into their harvests.


Filtration | Superior Products - How Superior Windmills Work

The diffuser is equipped with an internal check valve to eliminate water from entering the hose when the turbine is not operating in low wind conditions. Air flow is produced using a molded rubber diaphragm Air is drawn in on the down stroke via three intake valves on each diaphragm assembly. On the upstroke the compressed air is passed out the exhaust valve to the air hose via the pivot post to the 3/8" hose going to the pond.
