  • What is an air stripper?

    Air stripping is a process that introduces air into the contaminated water in order to create an interface between the air and water surfaces. In an air stripper, VOCs transfer or diffuse from the water into the air due to the concentration gradient, thereby "stripping" the VOCs from the water.

  • Long Term Applications

    Groundwater Remediation Systems

    Municipal Drinking Water Systems designed for the removal of volatile organic compounds including disinfection by products like Trihalomethanes

    Industrial Process Water Treatment Systems

  • Temporary Rental Applications

    Treatment of contaminated construction dewatering water.

    Soil and groundwater remediation dewatering water treatment.

    UST replacement and repair dewatering water treatment. Pipeline hydrostatic test water treatment

  • What makes Carbonair STAT different? Since 1992 Carbonair has provided thousands of STAT

    low profile air strippers in a myriad of applications and configurations. Many of these are still operating today. STATs air strippers are proven performers in the field and have gained a reputation for superior performance, ease of maintenance and rugged durability.

    STAT low profile air strippers can be configured for either a gravity or pump out discharge or both. Gravity drain units come equipped with a patented Flapper Valve in the sump that prevents air from bypassing the aeration trays through the water effluent port.

  • What are the standard features on a STAT?

    304 stainless steel construction Polypropylene demister material capable of removing

    95% of droplets 5 microns or larger

    Flanged (125 pound) inlet and outlet configuration to maximize the integrity of piping connections

    Anti-Bypass valve* eliminates need for priming prior to system start-up, ensuring that the first gallon to enter the unit will be treated as well as the last gallon

    Direct coupled blower to maintain high pressure air at low flow rates

  • What are the standard features on a STAT?

    Flapper valve* (Gravity units) prevents air from bypassing the sieve trays through the water effluent port

    Weir type square downcomer flow distribution system ensures uniform water distribution over the trays

    Tray fastened by over-center latching stainless steel clips

    Collection sump minimizes pump cycling requirements and maintains sufficient turbulence

    Low pressure switch mounted in the blower discharge piping to shut down unit in the event of blower failure

  • Optional Components

    Air temperature gauges

    316 stainless steel construction

    Air Flow meters

    Water temperature gauges

    Water flow meters

    Discharge pump with level controls

    Sample ports

    Explosion-proof controls
