Healthier Water, Happier Animals.

Foam Fractionators

AAT Foam Fractionators use billions of harmless bubbles to remove microscopic organic compounds, protein particles, amino acids, bacteria and other waterborne detritus from salt-water. It’s just one of the ways that AAT helps keeps aquatic creatures healthy and happy.

Powered by simplicity

Inside AAT Foam Fractionators, a continuous stream of bubbles – uniform in size and density – circulate predictably and rise slowly against the current. With a 2-minute dwell time, these bubbles have plenty of time to attract all manner of debris and contaminants and convey them to the surface where they are removed.
