Atlantic Blowers specializes in municipal, commercial, and residential aeration system components. We offer Disc Diffusers with a fine, medium, or coarse bubble option and carry Fine Bubble Tube Diffusers. Our diffusers use EPDM and silicone membranes.
Compared to traditional stone diffusers, it can significantly reduce and even eliminate the risk of unintended back-flow of water into the airline, reducing fouling by 73%.
We provide fully integrated solutions for your next aeration project. With just a few parameters, our engineers can design a fully customized aeration array that will meet your demands and ensure the longevity of the application.
What Bubble Diffusers Do We Have Available?
Our range of products consists of Coarse, Medium, and Fine Bubble Discs, As well as Fine Bubble Tubes and Universal Diffusers Mounts. There are many different factors in determining which diffuser is suitable for your next project. Understanding our products and what they do is the first step in choosing the correct diffuser.
1. Coarse and Medium Bubble Diffusers
Coarse and Medium Bubble Diffusers perform best in applications where mixing and agitation are the primary goals. Because the bubble created by these diffusers are larger than our other diffuser types, they are perfect for suspending solids, agitating dense material, and maintaining a homogeneous mixture.
2. Fine Bubble Discs
Fine Bubble Disc Diffusers are the most efficient oxygen transfer into an aquatic environment. This efficiency transfer occurs due to the smaller surface area of the bubble produced. A smaller surface area increases the permeability of the fluid membrane and thus will yield a much higher oxygen transfer rate (OTR). We offer both an EPDM membrane, as well as a silicone membrane. These Disc Diffusers are suited for applications where increased oxygenation is crucial (I.e., wastewater treatment and fish hatcheries).
3. Fine Bubble Tube Diffusers
Fine Bubble Tube Diffusers are similar to the Fine Bubble Disc in that they share the same rate of efficiency and bubble size. However, there is an added advantage of a 360-degree aeration range. With 360 degrees of coverage, this diffuser will have a larger surface area in a tank than a standard Fine Bubble Disc. Additionally, tube diffusers, similarly to discs, are well suited for oxygenation applications (I.e., wastewater treatment and fish hatcheries).

How Difficult Is the Installation of Bubble Diffusers?
Installation of our Fine, Medium, or Coarse Bubble Disc Diffusers is easy by using our Universal Diffuser Mount throughout your piping system. The Universal Diffuser Mount is made of durable polypropylene and provides a leak-tight seal. Install the mount by boring a 1.25" hole into the feeder pipe and gently tapping it into place with a rubber mallet. Keep tapping until the mount is flush with the feeder pipe.
Our Tube Diffusers are designed with a 3/4" FNPT connection and include a separate 3/4" MPT nipple. Install by tapping a 3/4" bore with thread and simply screw in the provided nipple. Finally, screw in the Tube Diffuser.
Once installed, we recommend filling the area just above the diffuser line before putting air into the system. This step will expose any leakage or faults in the installation and avoid any unwanted performance or workflow issues.
