The AquaCannon will greatly improve 02 levels down to 9-10 meters, it will help deeper but nowhere near what it will do at 9-10, this is enough to save a cage that holds 50,000 fish in a bad 02 situation, but as it was VERY clearly explained to me by a now retired very well respected industry professional—2-3meters more and both the fish and the fish farm owners would breathe easier.

With these words in mind, (the guy who spoke them is not the type of man who takes being taken lightly-lightly), I have being actively working on a different design of nozzle that will cause the oxygenated flow to go deeper without causing the amount of 02 in the water stream to lessen or to cause an increase in fuel consumption. OK fine, how do you get more push without having to increase the power?

There has to be a compromise somewhere, because has we all know you cannot get something for nothing….but you can get close.

Here’s what we came up with; longer smaller nozzle with a modified mixing chamber-you wind up with a little less water flow but you get more speed/penetration and are able to do it at lower RPM –less fuel.

In other words the unit will now do what it always did with less fuel consumed, if the situation demands deeper penetration then you are not consuming more fuel to get it. The only difference is less overall water being pushed, so it takes 15-20 minutes instead of 10 to get the treatment area stabilized. No big deal, if the situation is time critical simply run the unit full blast at start-up.
