Foam Fractionators

Purifying millions of litres of water with billions of tiny bubbles.

AAT Foam Fractionators effectively and efficiently remove microscopic organic compounds, protein particles, amino acids, bacteria, water tints and other waterborn detritus from salt-water aquaria.

AAT Foam fractionators are designed and manufactured by AAT engineers deeply familiar with the practical requirements of aquarium construction and operation. They are easy to manage and maintain, resistant to chemical and ozone attack, free from corrosion – vulnerable metals inside the chamber and feature Georg Fischer – quality fittings and valves as standard.

Our versatile range of seven AAT Foam Fractionators are tried, tested and proven. They can be found in some of the world’s largest and most innovative aquaria, such as Denmark’s award-winning Den Blå Planet where 25 units filter the 7,000,000 litres of the water inhabited by 20,000 animals.

AAT Foam Fractionators can also be ordered individually or in batches and shipped to aquaria designers and constructors literally anywhere in the world. Contact us to discuss which units should be specified for your aquarium project.

Why Clients Prefer AAT Foam Fractionators

VERSATILE

A range of seven units catering for flow rates from  5 m3/hr to 226 m3/hr (180 ft3/hr to 7988 ft3/hr). Body diameters from 300mm to 2000mm (11.8” to 78.7”) to meet the needs of different spaces and specifications. Option for air only or air/ozone mixtures depending on application.

EASY TO MAINTAIN

Larger systems are primarily self-cleaning with an optional fully-automated wash-down system and components. The rotating spray mechanism in an AAT Foam Fractionator which directs wash-down water is the only moving part inside our fractionators.

RESILIENT & DURABLE
Made with strong, durable, premium-grade vinyl ester resin – resistant to chemical and ozone attack. Quality fittings and valves. Free from corrosion vulnerable metals inside the chamber.
TRIED, TESTED & PROVEN
AAT Foam Fractionators are installed in some of the world’s largest and most innovative aquariums. You can find AAT Foam Fractionators operating in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Australia.
EFFECTIVE

Unique chamber-shape, valve-designs and component-positioning. Bubbles are uniform in size and density, circulate predictably and rise slowly against the current: 2-minute dwell time. Tapered base reduces water exit velocity and allow fine bubbles to break. Venturi manifolds incorporates tunable Mazzei injectors. Internal baffle plate for uniform fluid flow.

TRANSPARENT
At-a-glance inspections of the venturi nozzles and the torrent of bubbles visible inside the chamber through an acrylic viewing window. Clear PVC dome and cone makes control and diagnostic analysis easy. Clear tubes for visually inspecting mixing.
