Hello, my name is John Redd and I’m with Outdoor Water Solutions. Today, I’d like to talk to you about our windmill aeration systems, or as some people would call it, our windmill aerators.
There are several manufacturers out there and several of them import their products into the United States, however, ours are made in the United States and have a “Made in the United States” designation. The most important part of a wind-driven aeration system is the compressor. Several manufacturers out there can make towers and make a windmill head, and blades that attach to the tower. But when you start to see major differences between the manufacturers is on compressor design.
There are a couple of things that make the Outdoor Water Solutions compressors better than many of our competitors. The first thing is the diaphragms. We use a larger diaphragm, which allows us to produce quite a bit more air than our competitors. We also have larger check valves, you can see the check valve at the bottom which is ours versus some of our competitors and again, less restriction, which means we produce two or three times more air.
We also have a stainless steel crankshaft and cam on the inside which prevents that rust. Quarter-inch top steel plate, and then grade eight bolts on top. We use what we call a Balcam 2 technology which is basically where we are taking a piston and centering it in the crankshaft between two double block bearings. What that does is that spreads the workload across the compressor and gives us a longer lifespan with less maintenance. So all this basically means we are comfortable offering a five-year warranty on many of our compressors versus many of our competitors that offer 18 months to three years.
Give us a call if you have any questions about our Windmill Compressors.
