KARMA has developed a solar aerator which runs completely on solar energy with assured backup for 24×7. Aerators are based on high speed working impellers that splash the water into air and the splashing of water mixes oxygen into the water. Hence, the dissolved oxygen amount in the water increases. Moreover, the working impellers produce waves and currents, which make the saturated ammonia, CO2, methane, sulphureted hydrogen, etc. go out of water and improve the water quality. These are mainly used in shrimp and prawn farming. Solar aerator system provides the farmers involved in pisciculture, a unique opportunity to be independent of fossil power for agriculture, thus making the system more efficient, eco-friendly and sustainable.
