Kasco® Solar Powered RA3 Diffused Aeration System
The Kasco® Solar Panels allow their RA3 Diffused Aeration Systems to be powered by the sun instead of electrical power or both. Controllers integrate a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) to convert DC power to AC power. These Solar Powered Aeration Systems are a reliable and optimal option for ponds located too far off the grid power or to save on electrical costs.
The Kasco® Solar RA Diffused Aeration Systems are available as Solar Power Only and Solar + Power Grid.
Solar Power Only Controller
Solar-only systems use solar energy to maximize operation during daylight hours. In partial sunlight (morning and afternoon) the system will run at a reduced speed extending the daily run time. These packages include the PicoCell™.
Solar + Power Grid Blend Controller
These systems utilize solar power during the day and grid power at night to provide 24/7 performance. These packages include the PicoBlender™ 2500 Control Panel.
PV Solar Panels
Minimun 325+ watt polycrystalline photovoltaic panels. Dimensions 77" x 39" x 1.6". Operating in Temperature Range from -40°F to 185°F
The Kasco® Robust-Aire™ RA3 Solar Aeration Systems are highly efficient, reliable, and durable aeration systems that induce oxygen transfer, beneficial water movement, and mixing to ponds up to 4.5 Acres, 8 to 50 feet deep.
3-Year Warranty for Compressors, 1-Year Warranty for Controllers, 10-Year Warranty for Solar Panels.
