703 Waterloo Emitter

Solinst Canada

The Waterloo Emitter is a simple, low cost device designed for the controlled and uniform release of oxygen, or other bio-enhancing amendments, to encourage and sustain the growth of microorganisms required for in-situ bioremediation of contaminated groundwater.

The patented technology enables steady, direct diffusion of oxygen into an aquifer through pressurized silicone or LDPE tubing. Continuous, consistent release of oxygen into the tubing creates the ideal concentration gradient driving this passive system, without ‘bubbling off’ excess oxygen.

Emitters are ideal for the bio-remediation of BTEX and MTBE using oxygen. The diffusive process provides immediate bio-availability of molecular oxygen for aerobic bio-degradation enhancement, therefore no loss of the amendment gas occurs. The Waterloo Emitter can also encourage desirable abiotic reactions (pH adjustment, hydrolysis, etc.)
