The SMI® 120F is a floating mechanical Evaporator, specifically designed for small ponds where the end user is concerned about controlling wet and dry particulate drift. The 120F Evaporator is simple to use, easy to maintain, and constructed from high grade materials for years of reliable operation.
Designed with a minimal amount of top surface area to control the build-up of residue and scale, helping to reduce clean up and maintenance!
High-speed fan blade rotation creates an optimum water droplet distribution for evaporation. Annual evaporation rates up to 70% could be achieved and averages will typically be between 25% and 60‰.∗
The machine is designed for easy cleaning and maintenance. It requires no weekly bearing lubrication, as it is lubricated for the life of the motor. Pump is fitted with a static inlet filter that can be removed for cleaning. Pump sleeve is designed with a viewing port to simplify inspecting for scale build-up and obstructions in the pump inlet.
The SMI® 120F can pass particles up to &frac316; inch (4.7 mm) in diameter, which reduces the need for prefiltering, filter cleaning and the hassles of clogged nozzles.
This design has evolved from 20 years of experience in industrial and extreme outdoor applications. Polyethylene pontoons are filled with closed-cell polyurethane foam, ensuring buoyancy even after any accidental puncturing of the plastic outer shell. Critical components are manufactured from stainless steel for extended life in harsh environments. “Corrosion package” upgrade is available for all stainless steel construction for high and low pH applications.
∗Evaporation rates depend on many factors including ambient temperature, relative humidity, water makeup and chemistry, wind conditions, solar radiation and site topography.
