Surface agitation in CO2 injected planted tanks

In a real tank, there is always gaseous exchange, as well as consumption by aquatic plants. Even in a tank with poor off-gassing mechanism, CO2 levels rise in a diminishing manner. As CO2 levels rise, the greater the difference between atmospheric levels and the amount of dissolved CO2 in the tank, and the more CO2 will be off-gassed.

Fundamentals of Mixing and Agitation

2020-11-7 · Agitation is the result of turbulent fluid motion. In most large-scale mixing operations, a rotating impeller is used to produce liquid flow. Turbulence may be generated in four ways: by the action of the impeller blade on the liquid; by the rubbing of liquid on the walls of the tank; by the passage of the liquid around an obstruction; or by ...
