Although others may look similar the resemblance stops there. At Environmental Equipment Engineering we strive to make our floating aerators the best in terms of engineering, craftsmanship, efficiency, performance, and durability.
Our technicians have over 45 years of experience in the hand lay-up method of fibreglass modelling. And as efficient as our products are, they continue to improve. There's no better floating aerator on the market.
Malaysia installation. Six x 20 hp EEE Floating Surface Aerators. With a pumping rate of 15,365 GPM the basin is completely mixed in less than 20 minutes.
* Take notice of low discharge profile, Increased mixing and oxygen dispersion. No spray back on motor prevents corrosion and freezing in winter.
Superior Efficiency and Performance
One of the most notable differences between an EEE Floating Aerator and our competitors is the efficiency of our products.
The intake opening and outtake opening are larger than competitor models, allowing for high volume oxygen transfer. The interior surfaces of the aerator are perfectly smooth, forming a graceful, natural radius.
Water approaches the intake evenly from all directions and encounters no angles or rough edges as it passes through the aerator. Turbulence and exit losses are reduced to almost nothing.
Our aerator also has a larger diffuser which provides more surface for the water to follow. Water rushed out in a high velocity impinging spray pattern while at the same time forming a storm like a wave action that increases the diameter of mixing, oxygen dispersion, and oxygen transfer.
Due to the superior design of our aerator, the motor operates more efficiently.
A 20 horsepower motor on an EEE Floating Aerator will pump almost twice the amount of water as a 20 horsepower motor on a competitor model.
- Since our aerator will pump more water than other models, the rate of oxygen transfer also increases by 30 - 40%
- Since there is little spray back to cause corrosion or freezing there is virtually no chance for motor failure.
EEE aerators have pumping flow rates 30% higher than the flow rates published by other aerator manufacturers. In one recent comparison, a 20 hp EEEUSA aerator delivered 15,365 gallons per minute while a competitor’s 20 hp unit pumped a mere 8,321. EEE units are highly efficient and that means ultimate savings in operational costs as well.
An EEE Floating Aerator is built to last.
For both performance and durability, the starting point for our floating aerators is a perfect mold. We've spent a great deal of time designing and engineering the molds in which we manufacture our floats and diffusers. The quality of the mold ensures the quality of the final product.
Our craftsmen then apply layers of fiberglass by hand. This allows us to use a 45 - 55% glass to resin ratio, the ideal mix for optimum strength. The fiberglass on any EEE Floating aerator will be a minimum of a one-quarter inch thick and up to three-quarters of an inch thick. We also reinforce the throat of the aerator with encapsulated steel ribs. The resins we use are chemical resistant and impervious to sand, grit and other abrasives.
In addition to this structural strength, we make the diffuser far heavier (up to 400% in some instances) than competitor models. For example, a 40 horsepower aerator from EEE has a diffuser that weighs 900 pounds. The weight of the competitions diffusers for a 40 horsepower aerator is approximately 200 pounds.
Another example is that on our 5 horsepower aerator the diffuser weighs 187 pounds the weight of one of our competitors on a 25 horsepower aerator is 150 pounds.
The heavier diffuser also greatly reduced vibration. The industry accepted level for aerator vibration is 2.0 ml, peak to peak. EEE models balance out at a significantly better .2ml peak to peak.
Another reason vibration is so low on our aerators is because of the way we mount the motor base to the diffuser top, unlike some competitor’s models which mount a motor on four posts. Our motors rest on the diffuser with a 360 degree machined indexed bit.
Reduced vibration means the EEE floating aerator will operate trouble free for a much longer period than other models.
Thanks to computer-aided design and unitized fiberglass construction, the EEE Floating Aerator has the smoothest curved intake, volute and discharge passage of any floating surface aerator.
The natural curved intake bell-to volute-to discharge design promotes the highest gallon per minute rating of any aerator on the market. The less efficient design of competing aerators actually retards water flow and efficient oxygenation.
The EEE diffuser is not only 150% to 400% heavier but also larger in diameter to eliminate spray-back that could freeze up and corrode the motor as in the case of most aerators. All EEE aerators have large diffusers – the result of extensive engineering research – and these diffusers offer a number of important advantages:
The large EEE diffuser provides more surface for the inrushing water to follow
The spray is less susceptible to wind drift
The heavy-duty construction of stainless steel and fibreglass reinforced resin makes it 150% to 400% heavier than diffusers found on competitive aerators.
The weight of the EEE diffuser minimises vibration such that it balances out below 0.20 mils vibration peak to peak, a rating significantly better than the 2.0 mils level considered acceptable throughout the aerator industry.
Ten Year Warranty
EEE offers a ten-year warranty on all non-moving parts. Any defect or fault of the float or diffuser over a ten year period we will replace or repair it at no charge. We also offer a two-year warranty on the motor, a full year over the warranty offered by the manufacturer of the motor.
You simply cannot buy a better floating aerator and you can’t get a better warranty. Here’s what one engineering firm has to say about the EEE floating aerator.
“ We have specified and observed the operation of your products in many varied installations. We do not know of a failure at any of these installations due to aerator design or construction. The units have all operated excellently and, to our knowledge, none have required warranty service or replacement”
We know our floating aerators are superior in terms of performance and durability, in fact, we are so confident of its quality we will put ours up against anybody else's floating aerator.
The challenge published nationally and repeated here is for a side by side comparison of aerator performed by an impartial engineering firm in an impartial facility. The loser would pay for the cost of the testing, simple and fair. Unsurprisingly so far there have been no takers.

The propeller is designed to pull water and solids from the basin bottom and discharge out through the aerator diffuser. It does this at a 90-degree angle from the motor before being returned into the basin creating wave action to induce maximum oxygen and mixing into the basin volume.
Water Treatment: Why Aeration is Vital
Aeration is essential in order to maintain clean, breathable water.
Earth’s natural materials and organisms either inhabit or enter small bodies of water through various means. As these organisms begin the decaying process, they use up vital oxygen supply and release toxins that contaminate the water. Problems worsen when the decaying organisms begin to multiply, leading to rapid loss of dissolvable oxygen.
We’ve all seen beautiful ponds, lagoons and lakes that over the years are not well tended. Soon enough, they morph into an unsightly swamp with growth covering the surface.
We know our products
At EEE we have only one purpose. To continue making the best aerator in the world and we believe we do.
We know of no aerator with a more efficient design, higher pumping rate per horsepower or durable construction, and no aerator with a longer warranty.
And that’s why so many facilities prefer our aerator over any other.
