Solar Powered Water Body Circulation
Using a
Rio AG10 Circulator

No ... Go Solar
Perfect for medium to large sized lakes, ponds and water features where access to power is not as easy. This is a non-ornamental solution that circulates oxygen inside your water body to control the growth of any algae or aquatic weeds. Great for lakes and ponds in farms, rural blocks, council parks and industrial sites providing a pristine looking lake or pond whilst remaining off the grid.

The first Australian designed system to employ solar power to circulate and aerate water bodies.

Applying mechanical aeration and circulation depends on a number of things including the type of application, the size and depth of your waterbody, the age of the water body and the type of algae or aquatic weeds it has. The use of the solar powered Rio AG10 circulation system is perfect for medium to large size water bodies with a total volume of more than 5 megaliters. Perfect for farms, rural blocks, regional council parks that will benefit from a self sustaining solar powered circulation system that will keep the water body in perfect condition without the need of mains power.   

Up to 6 hrs/day Winter Day Operation
Over one million litres of water circulated every hour
Save over 2600 kWh per annum

Rio AG10 Circulator

The RIO AG10 is a water circulator used in applications on larger water bodies to provide mixing, destratification, circulation and aeration, providing environmentally friendly and non-toxic algae control in lakes and ponds. The unit operation maintains constant water movement from the surface to the bed of a water body.

The rotational operation of the propeller is designed to minimise damage to marine flora and fauna and lagoon infrastructure, providing power through a 15:1 reduction gearbox, to allow the large three-bladed propeller to rotate at 115 RPM.

Component Construction:

Central Motor Housing: stainless steel
Front & Rear Motor Flanges: cast iron
Blades: reinforced plastic.

Clear & Healthy Looking Water Body Free from any algae or aquatic weed

Depending on the age of your water body and the type of algae or aquatic weeds in it you should expect great results within the first few weeks from applying the algaecides. After, when installing your mechanical circulation and aeration system, your lake and pond should maintain in great shape.

Coral Coast Barramundi

Coral Coast Barramundi is located in the beautiful Whitsunday region of QLD and produces high-quality saltwater barramundi. Our farm consists of 24 x 1.2Meg plastic-lined raceways and is a fully integrated system, comprising of broodstock, hatchery, nursery, grow out and packing shed.  Coral coast Barramundi and BioRemedy have worked closely together over the past 10+ years and the  products and services they provide are second to none. Our farm has worked in conjunction with  BioRemedy on a number of aeration, circulation and oxygen injection projects.  In particular, we rely heavily upon the Acqua & Co Force 7.2 as it delivers oxygen injection and mixing like  no other product on the market. The Force 7.2 aerators have allowed us to at least double our production  and achieve excellent Feed Conversion Ratios coupled with the use of oxygen.  Corey Sander, Growout Manager, Coral Coast Barramundi

Rio Technical Data

Standard supply of the RIO AG20 is in an Australian-sourced frame and float configuration and is installed via 3 x 4 mm stainless steel mooring cables shackled to static points on the lagoon bank. Supply can also be arranged for a completely submerged installation, mounted on a structure or concrete slab where it is desirable to completely ‘hide’ the unit.

Maintenance Schedule

The Acqua & Co. RIO AG20 Water Circulator is a heavy duty mechanical unit which is designed for continuous operation in both fresh and salt water environments. Because of its simple direct drive design, in general terms, the RIO has a very low maintenance requirement.

However, it is important to provide effective preventative maintenance to ensure a long life from the circulator. It is recommended that an inspection of the primary seal and bearings is performed annually, with inspection of the secondary seal and bearings performed every two years. It is recommended that the maintenance schedule provided be followed to ensure effective management of your asset.

Solar Panels Performance Data

According to sample data collected in 2013-2014, during the winter (2013) and summer (2014) months, the average propeller speeds recorded were 1232 rpm and 1282 rpm respectively.

These speeds represent 88% to 92% of maximum performance (1400 rpm) achieved, which suggsests the average volume of water circulated was between 1.05 (88% of 1.2 million) and 1.10 (92% of 1.2 million) million litres per hour.
