Pulsair's technology is a "pulsed air technology" process which is the sequential release of compressed air or gas at the bottom of a tank, vessel or basin for the purpose of creating circulation and mixing. Measured amounts of high pressure air or gas are injected "pulsed" under flat round discs called accumulator plates installed on the tank bottom.
This sudden release of air shocks the liquid, setting molecules in motion. As the air "squeezes out" between the plate and tank floor, it sweeps out the heavier liquids and solids. The air then accumulates above the plate into very large, single oval shaped bubble. The bubble rises to the surface, a vacuum is created that pulls the heavier bottom liquids and solids up with it. As the bubble rises it also pushes the liquid above it up and out towards the tank perimeter. The liquid moves toward the sides of the tank and travels down the tank wall to the bottom. With no moving parts and minimal maintenance, pulsed air technology significantly reduces the need for maintenance and the associated costs and downtime.
This process of sequentially releasing the bubbled at timed intervals creates immediate vertical circulation. By strategically locating the pulse points and accumulator plates on the tank floor, virtually 100% of the tank's contents are involved.
