The maintenance of clean water within an aquaculture establishment requires meticulous disinfection, filtration of the water, flushing, and de-gassing circulation. It requires a durable and energy efficient pumping system.

The fishing industry is bustling place and no time for stopping an assembly line for regreasing. Pumps for fish farming must be able to sustain a high duty cycle.

Fish Farm Pump Systems

Fish farms are getting more popular as the world’s fish demands increase, and also because the oceans are overfished. Pumps are utilized for moving seawater around and to recirculate the waters in these huge fish farms in order to prevent stagnation.

The cost of aquaculture is an important expense on farms. Pumping represents a large portion of total energy usage. Operators can reduce the cost of energy consumption by choosing the proper size for their pump.

In order to determine the necessary pump capacity, you need to divide the tank size by preferred turnover rate (turnover every hour) to determine the rate of flow required. Choose a may bom cuu hoawith similar capacity. There’s never time to wait to receive a call from a technician in the event that a pump ceases to function in particular when it’s running the fish.

Aquaculture Pump Efficiency

Pumps are essential for aquaculture in order to provide oxygenation, the distribution of water, and the transfer of nutrients. The power they use is among the highest operational costs.

For greater efficiency in your equipment, be sure your pump is sized correctly to meet your requirements. Estimate the desired tank turn-over rate and then divide it by the capacity of your pump for the amount of gallon per hour (or the number of liters per hour) that you will require.

Pumping duration and power consumption is also reduced through reducing the speed of the pump at times when less than the full flow is needed. Danfoss has variable speed drive that let you adjust the motor’s speed electronically. It allows you to regulate the flow of the system accurately, as well as saving energy. The reduction in operational expenses is the main goal of the efficiency of your energy usage.

Sustainable Pumping Solutions for Fish Farms

Aquaculture is a field that faces numerous issues: lice in salmon, algal problems and waste management. To address these, aquacultures depend on efficient and sustainable pumps to disinfect and flush, filter to de-gas, circulate water.

Danfoss has a wide range of pumps that are designed to help fish farmers can reduce the energy use and increase the effectiveness of pumping. For example, by applying Danfoss’s speed control for pumps will reduce energy consumption for a recirculation system by approximately 50%.

Fisheries are busy places where everything happens within the blink of an eye. If the lives of animals depend on a continuous stream of water, there is little time to waste. The reason is that they require sturdy, reliable pumps that require no other lubrication. A pump that uses air is an option.

Water Pump Maintenance

In Florida, energy costs rank as the second most expensive operational expenses. The improvement of pumping performance in aquaculture can reduce these costs. Correct system sizing, installation and selection of pumps can increase quality and reliability.

It is essential that the pump be designed to work at its best effectiveness (BEP). If they operate beyond BEP can cause cavitation and decreases the service life of motors mechanical seals, and shaft bearings. It can lead to costly operational and maintenance expenses.

It is important to evaluate the topography, which can affect the stability of water and drainage as well as erosion threat. It also impacts the water quality parameters (temperatures of salinity, pH as well as dissolved oxygen, etc.) that are required by certain fish species in order to thrive. An extra pump at hand, and then plugged into the system reduces any downtime that may occur in case of a failure.

Innovative Pump Technologies for Aquaculture

For aquaculture, superior water quality is critical for long-term sustainability of fish production. In addition, the increase of population and crowded conditions can cause poor condition of the water and stress, and even disease.

Constant Flow Technology helps maintain the same flow rate in varying conditions. This is particularly useful for RAS systems using filters that are used for the media. This can help prevent waste from blocking the system, and maintain oxygen levels to their optimal levels.

DESMI has designed a series of low-pressure, high-flow pumps which are ideal for RAS applications as well as for land-based flow-through. They’re much simpler to manage and have better energy efficiency over larger capacities than big propeller pumps. With an aquaculture-specific drive, these pumps also have PLC management menus specific to the demands for this specialized sector. Aquaculture-related applications require precise load measurements.
