Aeration of the moat and operation of artificial stream with waterfall in the baboon and ringtailed lemur enclosure.
APS Augsburger Pumpenservice
The water in the baboon enclosure moat must be aerated to keep it free of ice in winter so that the baboons cannot escape from the enclosure across the ice. A robust pump was also needed for the artificial stream.
A 50TRN2.75 pond aerator with 750 W motor rating was installed in the moat. The water in the moat is kept in constant motion using a 100UZ43.7 wastewater pump with vortex impeller. The artificial stream is operated using robust cast iron KTZ22.2 and KTZ32.2 sewage pumps.
