High Performance Aerator
The Yellow Frog increases the oxygen transfer rate in lagoons to allow for nitrification/de-nitrification.
The Yellow Frog is a specialized hybrid efficient aerator comprised of a Blue Frog™ circulator with a 1.25 Horsepower blower attached. Surrounding the chassis are two layers of aeration hose. Each Yellow Frog adds 104 cubic feet of air into the water per minute through bubbles measuring less than 1 micron in size each.
Specialized Biofilm (Matrix Spokes)
The Specialized Biofilm (Matrix Spokes) biologically lowers ammonia levels. A Yellow Frog surrounded by radiating spokes of suspended attached growth surface area is used to create a highly efficient and mobile fixed film bioreactor for ammonia, nitrogen, and BOD reduction.
Yellow Frog for Enhanced Ammonia Treatment
Yellow Frog has a 4.25 horsepower motor capable of adding 200 lbs. of oxygen per day to the lagoon. Each unit is also capable of circulating 7,350,000 US gallons per day (direct flow). Yellow Frog units can be utilized inside a CSTR or for lagoon capping or additionally as a specialized ammonia reduction system.

Yellow Frog Key Features
- Aerates the top 3 feet of water.
- Attached growth media biologically lowers ammonia levels.
- Bubbles rise (9” & 18”) into 7 MGD radially outflowing gas-free water.
- Eddies serially re-entrain bubbles until oxygen is dissolved.
- Shaded attached growth surface provides habitat for various aerobes.
- BOD is reduced by a combination of aerobic and anaerobic pathways.
Total Horsepower: 4.25
Requirement: Engineered float depth of 4 feet.
